21 weeks

So, I'm a little over halfway there. I am getting huge quickly and am now starting to worry about how big I will be towards the end of this pregnancy. So, here's a quick pic to remember my giant status at the halfway point.

Week 21: Banana
Average size: 10.5 in***, 12.7 oz

Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for hydration and nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies are most interested in tastes they've already experienced through amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you want your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.

Girl, don't worry about it... pregnancy is the time where you are supposed to be big and beautiful! You do have "the glow." (Love the shirt too, btw.)
