21 weeks & Bump pics

Me and my little boy!
I feel like it has really "popped" in the last week or two, so here are so new bump pics: 21 weeks!
I am feeling pretty good... considering.
I have been getting used to getting around with a belly, I am a bit tired, my ribs hurt from time to time usually late afternoon, and my back pain is pretty bad, but all in all I am doing good!

21 Weeks...more than half way there only 19 more to go!

Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long Chances are good you're feeling someone performing a round-off back handspring in your uterus by now. Other highlights this week:By now your baby looks like a mini-version of what she'll look like when she's born. All her facial features are formed and hair is growing on her head. She's even acting like a baby and will occasionally suck her thumb or yawn. Aww ...

Baby's heartbeat is getting stronger and can be heard using a good old-fashioned stethoscope.

By 21 weeks, fetal bone marrow starts making blood cells—previously done by the liver and spleen. This may not sound that exciting, but it's good news.The amniotic fluid that has been cushioning your little bean now serves another purpose: Your baby uses it to "practice" chowing down. Your baby has been swallowing amniotic fluid for a while now, but now the intestines are finally developed enough that she's absorbing small amounts of sugars from it. And let's face it, being able to effectively digest sugar is important at every stage of life.
