The second trimester is a wonderfully exciting time for both parents to be. It’s a time without morning sickness and a time of improved sex life but most of all it’s a time to enjoy new experiences and share the love of new life with friends and family.

By the time the second trimester has come around, most guys are starting to get used to the idea of becoming a dad. Some of the initial stresses and worries they experienced in the early stages of the pregnancy are fading away and they are being replaced with plenty of excitement and joy.
