How far along? 21 weeks
How big are the babies? Bananas!
Best moment this week: Putting a big dent into clearing out the babies' room
Symptoms: I feel very heavy!
Food cravings: Pretty much anything anyone mentions
Genders: A Boy and Girl!!!
Milestones: 5 Months down!
Development: Babies' digestive systems are busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion, and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, if baby is a girl, her womb is now stocked up with her lifetime supply of six million eggs (the number will drop to around one million by birth).
