Are you starting to think ahead in your pregnancy or do you find yourself forgetting you're pregnant? Here are pregnancy photos from the second trimester, 16 weeks pregnant in this belly gallery.

The pregnant belly is an amazing thing. I love how it goes from being so flat to so round and back to flat. But the truth is, there is a lot of variation in the middle. Some bellies show sooner than others, some never show much at all. Some women have bellies that pop right out, almost from the moment the pregnancy test turns positive. It's really neat to see how some mothers carry high, and some carry low - every belly is different.

The problem with that is that we are creatures who love to compare. Why does my belly not look like hers? Will I be able to have a healthy baby if she's bigger/smaller/wider than me? So, we take care of this different in prenatal care.

You are currently seeing your doctor or midwife once a month. One thing that they will start doing around now is using a tap measure to look at your belly. The measure from the top of your pubic bone to the top of your uterus (called the fundus). This gives them an estimate of how your baby is growing. You get measured again the one important yardstick in your pregnancy - your own belly. 

From about 20 weeks on, the belly should measure about 20 centimeters. This is usually plus or minus 2 centimeters. Your doctor or midwife will record the numbers and let you know if they are worried. The measurement is the first line of defense. The second step would be to use ultrasound to peek inside.

You will walk through several other steps of prenatal care that seem routine, and they are - until they aren't. That's the whole point of screening, we assume you are healthy and normal and that these tests will come back confirming that you are healthy and normal until they don't. Then we will investigate and determine the course of action that will help.

Has your partner come to a prenatal visit with you yet? If not, why not plan to bring them the next time. It's not always practical for everyone to go to all of the appointments, but at least a few so they get to know your provider. This will help them feel at ease when the birth happens ​because they will have gotten to know the provider.
