21 weeks pregnant: your body

Skin and nail changes?

You are now in the twenty-first week of the second trimester of your pregnancy. Your baby is growing steadily and now the size of a large banana, so you should start to feel kicks, twists and turns this week. It is a good idea to take note of the movements you feel each day to help measure your baby’s development. We also recommend interacting with your baby, so that he will recognise you and your partner’s voices soon after birth. It may seem a bit odd talking to your belly, but honestly it’s great and you can talk about anything: what you’ve been doing that day or what you will both be doing this weekend. It doesn’t have to be creative, but the more talk the better!
