5 Cool Things About The Second Trimester
The second trimester is a huge time of growth for your little one. Here's a sneak peak at what's going on in there!
Your baby has doubled in size.
Since the first trimester, your baby has more than doubled in size. Which, when you think about it compared to our growth as adults, is absolutely mind-boggling. From a tiny embryo invisible by the eye, to nearly 10 inches long by the fifth month, your baby is making some astounding strides in the growth department.
Your baby's eyelashes develop.
It might not sound like a big thing, but the fact that your teeny little baby is developing those perfect teeny little eyelashes this early is nothing short of miraculous. You're halfway there, but the smallest little details are already in place.
Your baby now has regular sleep cycles.
Although it might not seem like it when your baby is wide awake in the middle of the night, your baby has developed regular sleep/wake cycles. Probably, you'll notice those sleepy nights are not when you are sleeping!
Your baby can hear.
An amazing development occurs as early as the fourth month–your baby develops the ability to hear. And by week 25, your baby actually responds to the sound of your voice. Start practicing those lullabies now!
Toe prints and fingerprints have formed.
Your baby has his own unique toe prints and fingerprints by the end of the second trimester. Although, of course, you didn't need us to tell us that your baby is a unique individual, did you?
