What should you expect in Week 21?
  • By now your baby is making constant tiny movements called quickening, and you may be preparing for an anatomy scan!
  • So if you’re keeping your baby’s gender a secret, don’t look too closely and let the technician know!
  • And while you still have 19 weeks to go, Braxton Hicks contraction could begin!
  • As The Bump reports, at this point in your pregnancy, the Braxton Hicks contractions likely feel akin to a “quick tightening.
  • Here is another fun fact, if you’re pregnant with a baby girl, she’s currently carrying all the eggs as she’ll ever have in her newly developed uterus!
  • This means you’re not only carrying your own child, but potential your grandchildren as well.
  • And if you’re having a baby boy, his testes are currently located in his abdomen.
  • They will drop in a few weeks after his scrotum has fully developed, The Bump reports.
  • By the way, how’s that nursery coming along?
