14 weeks pregnant
Your baby’s development
Your baby is now around 9cm long and is starting to practise breathing movements. At this stage, your baby’s heart starts to pump.
Take a look at our information about exercising during pregnancy to find out which exercises are safe for you to do and always consult your doctor before you start anything new.
The good news is that if you do get into a good exercising routine and combine it with healthy eating during pregnancy, you’re more likely to continue after the birth – which will help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure quicker. Yay!
You & your body
During your second trimester, you’ll probably find you have lots more energy which will be a welcome change if you’ve been feeling lethargic over the past 13 weeks. You might feel like you want to exercise and put the energy to good use, but do be careful when embarking on new exercise routines. Now is not really the time to take up abseiling!
