This week you are the size of an eggplant! You are about 1.5-2.5 pounds and measure 13.6-14.8 inches. Your putting on layers of fat and your skin is becoming smoother and less wrinkled. Your lungs could survive on the outside (but you won't really be ready until July- keep growing in there!) Your eyes can now open and close and sense changes to light.
A pretty normal week, minus the nosebleeds that have started. Almost every day- a wonderful side effect of more blood flo
This week you are the size of a rutabaga. You are 13.6-14.8 inches long and weigh 1.5-2.5 pounds (given your Hudak blood I'm saying you are on the higher ends of the ranges). You are becoming more complex and if you arrived prematurely you could (with lots of help) survive outside of me.

This week you are the size of a head of lettuce! You are still about 13.6-14.8 inches long and weighing in at about 1.5-2.5 pounds. Your eyes are still forming but will open soon!

I was measuring about 2 weeks ahead, and my fundal height this week was about
This week you are the size of a cauliflower! You measure 13.6 to 14.8 inches (that's over a foot long- crazy!) and weigh 1.5-2.5 pounds. Your nervous system is rapidly developing- giving you a sense of equilibrium, which way is up and which way is down.
Returned back to work this week after the babymoon. Thankfully the sunburn wasn't too bad and only was painful for a day or 2 and didn't itch much at all. By the end of the week I had pretty much turned to tan and have o
This week you are the size of a cantaloupe! You weigh 12.7-20.8 ounces and measure 10.5-11.8 inches long. Your skin is becoming more opaque and pink from small capillaries that are forming. Your longs have developed but aren't ready for the outside world yet- but you are getting closer! This week was waiting in anticipation for the weekend- and our babymoon! For those wondering (like Stephen did) what the heck a babymoon is- well its like a honeymoon but you go before baby
