At this stage of pregnancy, many women feel re-energized and have a strong sense of well-being. Healthy eating is very important, so be clued in about the best food choices. In particular, your body needs plenty of protein; and your baby needs it too to sustain its rapid growth.
However, you may still be up and down emotionally. This stage of pregnancy can be a very emotional time. Reaching the second trimester is a huge milestone and coincides with seeing your baby for the first time on the scan. Now you know for sure that you really are going to have a baby. A good outlet for all this emotional energy is exercising, which you may find easier now that you’re over the hurdles of the first trimester.

Exercise releases endorphins and so can improve your emotional as well as physical well-being. Always exercise safely and don’t try to really push your physical limits. Although you are noticing all of these changes, your belly is unlikely to be prominent for a few more weeks. If you have had a pregnancy before, you may “show” earlier, however.
