Less than 10 mm: Fetal ventricles are considered large when above 10 mm. Yours are in the normal range. Of course all radiology studies need to be analyzed in the clinical context so please confirm with your doctor.

No: The earlier you seek prenatal care the better. If you have put off your first visit though now is the time. It is never too late.

No: You should talk to your doctor. Some women perceive movements less than others. This may be due to the position of the placenta. A more concerning scenario would be if the baby moved a certain amount all the time and suddenly stopped moving. You should talk to your doctor immediately if something like that happened.

Better nausea and...: Usually in the second trimester your nausea has decreased but the discomfort and heaviness of the third trimester hasn't come yet. For a lot (but not all) the second trimester is slightly easier. I would never say that any part of pregnancy is easy.

Dr. Cassandra Ndiforchu
Obstetrics and Gynecology 49 years experience
Low fetal health: A decrease in fetal well-being can happen for several reasons. Fetal distress can occur during the pregnancy or during labor. The warning signs are a decrease in the usual daily level of movement, greenish material present in a sample of the amniotic fluid, a decrease in the heart beats on routine check or during a labor contraction.

Absent normal heart rate variation during labor could also be a sign, as well as persistent fetal tachycardia.

Maternal-Fetal Medicine 26 years experience
Hydrops.: Fetal pericardial effusions can lead to tamponade and worsening heart failure with hydrops and fetal loss. Depending on their cause they may be amenable to fetal interventions and/or early delivery at a tertiary care center.
