Welcome to the second trimester, this time is generally a lot quieter than the first with your hormones balancing out. In saying this it is still completely normal to feel vulnerable, sad or ecstatic, as a lot of things are happening inside your body! If you are planning any overseas travel, or major life changes such as moving house, now is the time perfect to do so, as by the third trimester you may not be feeling up to it. Your baby is now completely formed, although there is a long way to go until she is mature enough to be born and survive out of the womb.
More and more mums-to-be are turning to HypnoBirthing to lose the fear surrounding giving birth.
