Baby at 21 Weeks Pregnant
Your baby looks pretty similar to what he will come out like, only much much smaller. So, kind of like a naked bobble head doll. He has a face and can now blink and even has eyebrows. Note “eyebrows”…hopefully junior won’t inherit your great aunt Janet’s unibrow. Baby is now about 10 inches long and weighs about 12 ounces (which is about the weight of a can of soup).

Mom at 21 Weeks Pregnant
This is a great time in the pregnancy.
She’s feeling good. You’re feeling good…but her face: you might notice your partner’s face is a little bit oily (or very oily). You might even notice her breaking out (like puberty all over again). Don’t point it out to her; she looks in the mirror.
Do not expect her to always want to have sex, although do have sex if she always wants to have it. That last part is probably self-evident.
When you find yourself in the midst of a really good day where she’s feeling great, take a mental note of gratitude. And tell her she’s beautiful.
Pregnancy Tips for Dad at 21 Weeks
You should be attending baby classes by now or at least have them booked. These will teach you a lot of what you need to know, and should put some of those fears to bed. This is also a great way to show your partner that you’re taking the baby thing seriously.
Are you questioning whether or not you’ll be a good father? Good! That’s the sign of someone who will be (at least) a pretty decent dad. It’s totally normal to question your qualifications for this role.
