The second trimester spans Week 13 to 28 of your pregnancy. Most women will feel comfortable announcing their pregnancy as they approach this milestone, as the risk of miscarriage is drastically reduced at this stage.

- Your baby continues to grow and develop throughout the second trimester.
- Between 16-20 weeks, you will feel your baby getting more active and fetal movements become slightly more obvious.
- At Week 20, your baby can respond to surrounding sounds.
- By the end of the second trimester, your baby is about 40cm long and weighs about 1kg.
