What is the breakdown of what happens in each trimester?

First trimester is the beginning when the developing embryo becomes implanted into the endometrial lining of a woman's uterus. Morning sickness can occur in about seventy percent of all pregnant women and typically improves after the first trimester. Months 4 through 6 of the pregnancy are called the second trimester. Most women feel more energized in this period, and begin to seriously put on weight as the symptoms of morning sickness subside and eventually fade away. Final weight gain takes place in the third trimester, which is the most weight gain throughout the pregnancy. The fetus will be growing the most rapidly during this stage, gaining up to 28g per day. The woman's belly will transform in shape as the belly drops due the the fetus turning in a downward position ready for birth.

Which trimester should pregnant women take particular care whilst exercising?

Pregnant women should take care when exercising in all trimesters, to be honest, because all of them come with different risks: First trimester is where the baby is smallest and therefore most vulnerable. There is more risk of miscarriage in this trimester, so women should take care not to do anything overly strenuous Second trimester is where there is a risk of premature birth. Although some babies survive being born in the second trimester, it is risky and many do not survive. So women should take care during exercise in the second trimester to lower the risk of premature birth Third trimester is where there is not so much risk because the baby would survive being born in the third trimester, however, the mother may find it difficult to exercise during this trimester due to back ache, needing to pee more, exhaustion and a large bump. Also, she may find she gets out out breath very easily or gets hot very quickly

What can cause miscarriage at 14 weeks?

Technically, a second-trimester miscarriage is a loss that happens between 12 and 20 weeks. A pregnancy loss after 20 weeks would be classified as a stillbirth or a neonatal death.A number of factors can lead to second-trimester miscarriage. Some miscarriages diagnosed in early in the second trimester might have actually occurred in the first trimester but were not detected immediately (these would be called missed miscarriages).Losses that occur after 12 weeks can be due to chromosomal abnormalities, which are a major culprit in almost all forms of pregnancy loss. But second-trimester miscarriages have a much greater likelihood than first-trimester miscarriages to be caused by other factors. Some of these are:Cervical insufficiency or very early preterm laborInfectionsAbdominal traumaCongenital birth defects, such as heart malformations in the babyThrombophilia disordersProblems with the placenta (such as placental abruption)Unknown causesWomen who have had second-trimester pregnancy losses should consult with a doctor early in their next pregnancies in case extra monitoring is needed.
