Week 21 starts on day 147 and goes up to day 154.
It is your 22e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 27 centimeter / 10.6 inches
Weight of your baby: 380 gram / 13.4 ozs

There is little change compared to last week. Most of the baby's growth now is weight gain.

He might be over the halfway mark in terms of length but he still needs to put on nearly ten times his present weight! From now on, your baby will gain around 60 grams a week. You will put on around 500 grams a week. That´s perfectly normal.

Your uterus comes up to your navel now and growing at quite a rate. Your bump seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the day.





With your uterus growing so quickly, you could find you get round ligament pains. These feel like a stitch or shooting pain in the side of your uterus. You're likely to find this happens more when you've been too busy. The only remedy is to lie down and rest.

The baby's skin is no longer transparent. White blood cells are developing, which are vital to your baby's immunity against disease and infection. The tongue and organ of balance are fully developed. The baby will start pulling faces to exercise his facial muscles.

A baby girl´s internal reproductive organs are now fully developed. Her ovaries contain millions of eggs. She will lose a lot of them before birth, when she will still have around 500,000.

Not true about not being able to do anything for round ligament pain. Taking Magnesium and Potassium supplements has basically eliminated my round ligament pain; I eat plenty of dairy so calcium is not an issue for me, but that would be another one that could cause the cramping. Prenatal vitamins have NO Magnesium in them; it inhibits iron absorption. So most women never realize they are lacking in it or need it. Crazy! Just make sure you don`t take it WITH your prenatals; take in the evening instead or something.

sayoddy (654.3 days ago)
Today would have been my due date if I didn`t lose the pregnancy at 12weeks but hey, have to wait 19 more weeks which I call extra time. I`ve experience pregnancy symptoms since January and will take it to march next year. My body needs a standing ovation and I appreciate her, will treat my body to first class once I deliver
