{21 weeks}

Our little chiquita banana ♥

{as of 3/6, your hr was 137bpm, you weighed 14.5 ounces, & you were about 12 inches long!}

Your Baby: Week 21

Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for hydration and nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies are most interested in tastes they've already experienced through amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you want your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.

{all those cute marks on my belly are from falling asleep
on the couch during "big love." oops!}
