May be experiencing some different symptoms than what you had going on in the first trimester.

Diet- don’t change your entire diet just for baby. You do need more because you are growing another human, but letting your body tell you what you need is okay. Incorporate a few tasty, highly nutritious snacks throughout the day.

You may have a dark line starting to run down the center of your belly. This line is the linea nigra, it’s usually ¼ to ½ inch wide and stretches vertically from your belly button to your pubis.
