Week 14 is the beginning of the second trimester, which is a very exciting time for both you and your baby! You may even start to look noticeably pregnant (although that popped belly may be subtle!). Don't use your growing uterus and your pregnancy as an excuse to gain too much weight, though. During the second trimester, doctors recommend that most women only gain about one pound per week, or 25 to 35 pounds throughout their pregnancy. If you're overweight when you become pregnant, doctors may recommend that you gain less weight, but you definitely shouldn't diet or try to lose weight during pregnancy. Focus on eating healthful foods that contain the nutrients you need, especially iron, calcium, protein, and folic acid. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about weight gain and nutrition as you begin the second trimester.
