During the sixth month (21 to 25 weeks), the fun of pregnancy is in full bloom. You will continue to grow at a rate of about a pound a week. (That would sound alarming if you weren't also growing a baby!) Expect to gain 4 to 5 pounds, with one whole pound of that going directly to the baby, not you. Your uterus reaches above the level of your navel this month, and the bulge extrudes in all its glory. (Anyone still wondering "is she, or isn't she?" now knows for sure.) As you gaze at your new profile in a mirror, you'll be amazed at how much you've expanded in a month. You'll feel stronger and your baby will alert you with more frequent kicks; your mate and other children will be able to feel them now, too.
