21 weeks - According to the baby calendar

Even though this is my thirteenth baby - I still love following my baby's development online so I have signed up for a weekly email of how where my baby is week by week. Here is this week's progress report. I will post them weekly along with a note as to how accurate it seems to be in relation to how I am feeling.

Hello, Christi!
Your baby now href="http://www.babycenter.com/6_your-pregnancy-21-weeks_1110.bc?scid=mbtw_preg21:110&pe=2UvDvIz">weighs about 3/4 of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you're having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.

How your life's changing:

You're probably feeling pretty comfortable these days. You're not too big yet, and the usual discomforts associated with early pregnancy are, for the most part, gone. If you're feeling good, relax and enjoy it while you can — the third trimester may bring with it a new crop of complaints.That's not to say you won't have some minor glitches to deal with now. (From here on they talked about varicose veins so I didn't bother to add it. Who wants to read about that anyway - I don't!)

So - as to the baby's movements - I am not seeing any routines to them but they are stronger and I love this time of the pregancy. Not too uncompfortable and loving the baby's movements.
