In brief: Quite a few

In the second trimester, the baby continues to grow, making room for itself by pushing your organs out of the way.
So your abdomen will enlarge, and towards the third trimester other problems like hemorrhoids, heartburn and back pain may result. "what to expect when expecting" is one of many good prenatal education books to consider reading for more information.
