21 Weeks Pregnant

Your Baby is the Size of a Carrot

You can feel the kicks now, as it feels like Bruce Lee is residing in your tummy. Patterns in activity are noticeable as well. Your baby can also taste what you've been eating. Your amniotic fluid, which your baby swallows, changes in taste depending on what you recently ate. In fact, doctors believe that what you eat while pregnant makes the baby more likely to eat that same thing once born.

Increased oil production may contribute to the return of acne, but washing with a gentle soap can help this problem. You're more prone to varicose veins now as well. These will most likely go away after a couple of months of giving birth. Try to move around as much as you can to get the blood flowing and make sure to speak to your doctor to about getting the right vitamins.
