Baby's now the size of a banana! Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion, and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, if baby is a girl, her womb is now stocked up with her lifetime supply of six million eggs (the number will drop to around one million by birth).
How far along? 21 weeks. Total weight gain: down 8 lbs from pre pregnancy weight! I am starting to gain. Maternity clothes? Yep, I am looking forward to winter clothes once it gets colder.
