A.

As you enter your second trimester of pregnancy, the morning sickness and fatigue that plagued you during the last three months should be fading into unpleasant memories, leaving you feeling more energetic and like your old self again.

With the real heavy lifting still a few months away, the second trimester is, for many women, the easiest three months of pregnancy. Take the time now, while you're feeling better and your energy is up, to start planning for your baby's arrival.

During the second trimester, your baby is growing quickly and your expanding belly is becoming a clear giveaway that you're pregnant. Your co-workers and friends may be wondering: "Is she pregnant, or has she just put on a few pounds?" If you haven't told everyone you're pregnant, now is a good time to do it.
