Pregnancy information: week 21 of being pregnant - Your waistline will be truly disappearing at this stage as your uterus starts to move up above your navel.
Your waistline will be truly disappearing at this stage as your uterus starts to move up above your navel. It should be quite obvious that you are pregnant, though some women are bigger than others. You may be noticing slight swelling in your lower legs in the evening. Avoid puffy feet and ankles by circling your feet regularly whenever you have time. Try to rest with your feet up. As your skin stretches over your bump it might start to itch. If you are feeling your baby move, you will probably notice your baby moving more, with him or her more active when you are resting and still when you are on the move.
Your baby now weighs half the weight of a tin of beans. Talk to your baby, as he or she will hear your muffled voice. Your baby can swallow amniotic fluids, some experts believe this gives the growing baby some essential nutrients. Your baby is steadily gaining fat in order to keep warm.
