21 Weeks Pregnant

Gosh, I need to post a belly picture on here! This little boy is sure growing. I know this because I'm sure growing! (:o/)

So, at 21 weeks, here's what's going on: I'm definitely feeling Mr. Jamison move around and kick in there. It's so cool! Now, the baby looks like a mini-version of what he'll look like at birth. He makes little facial expressions and even sucks his thumb sometimes. Fetal bone marrow begins making cells now, which was a function previously performed by the liver. Baby is practicing swallowing the amniotic fluid, and the digestive tract is now developed enough that he can absorb sugar from it. Baby is now between 10 and 11 ounces and is about 7 inches long.
