21 Weeks Pregnancy Update

21 Week Pregnancy UpdateHow far along? 

21 weeks

Baby’s size:

Length of a Carrot – 10 1/2 inches

Baby’s development:

Baby’s eyebrows and lids are present now.

Fluttering movements have turned into full-fledged kicks and nudges (that is a bit of an understatement, guv’na!)

Baby’s weight:

3/4 of a pound

Food cravings: 

Water, water, water – basically I could drink my weight in water every second of the day

Weight gained:

12 lbs


None, but I tend to get full really quickly whereas in the first trimester I had to remind myself when to stop eating.


Utterly exhausted – does it ever end?

Random changes:

  • Baby wakes up early every morning, kicking as if to wake me up. It was quite alarming the very first time. I could actually see my stomach poke up and down and even roll like a wave.
  • Every night it starts up again and it feels as though baby is doing somersaults in there. It is literally the coolest thing I’ve ever experienced and I love laying there watching it.
  • I always spill food on myself now. I wasn’t messy before but now I have to physically stop and check my shirt while I eat.
  • My balance is already shifting and I run into random things; it’s actually kind of embarrassing.
  • My depth perception is already off too and when I squeeze past something my stomach grazes the object; it’s alarming.
  • At night and in the morning, my stomach and chest are very itchy so I’ve started putting coconut oil all over.
  • I find myself worrying about odd things like if the baby is cold when I am cold.
