As the second trimester begins, morning sickness may improve or disappear. Your appetite may also improve. You may still have sore breasts and heartburn, however, as well as new symptoms such as a stuffy nose, varicose veins, and more vaginal discharge (leukorrhea). You may also feel new aches and pains (especially in your back and pelvis) and notice skin itchiness or color changes. The good news? By the end of the trimester, you should be able to feel your baby moving inside you and you may notice that your hair and fingernails are growing faster than usual.
