Pregnancy Week 21

In the twenty-first week, your baby begins to show greater movement.

The ability to swallow develops and the baby is poised to start gaining weight.

Red blood cells begin to be produced in the bone marrow, which will become the major site of blood cell production in the third trimester and after birth.

Slim women may feel the movement a little earlier.
