Baby Fun With Fruit!

One of my favorite parts of being pregnant was learning about the size of my baby as compared to fruit. In fact, for months after my son was born, my sister and I referred to my son as “Razz” because he was at one point the size of a raspberry. Check out this chart of the size of your growing baby as it relates to fruit.



At five weeks, about the time you are probably finding out you are pregnant, your little baby on the way is just the size of an apple seed -- about .13 inches. Though tiny, his major organs and systems are already developing.


My favorite week – week 8 – your baby is just the size of a raspberry. He is just over a half inch long and .04 ounces but already has little arms and legs.


At 11 weeks your lime-sized little one is just over 1 1/2 inches long and a quarter of an ounce. The webbing between fingers and toes is no longer.

Two weeks into your second trimester, at 15 weeks, your blossoming baby’s legs are now longer than her arms and her joints are functioning. Though she’s wriggling about in there, you likely have yet to feel your baby’s first movement.


At 20 weeks your baby is about the length of a banana (6 1/2 inches) and his/her genitals are fully formed. If you have been anxiously waiting to find out the sex of your baby, your doctor can for sure tell you by now if he hasn't already.


At 24 weeks your baby is the size of a cantaloupe and his face is completely formed. Now’s a great time to get some 4D images!


At week 31 your baby is about the size of a pineapple -- approximately 15 to 17 inches long and between 2 1/2 and nearly four pounds. Your baby’s five senses are all working at this stage and brain and nerve development is taking place.


At 39 weeks (you’re almost there!), it’s really like toting a watermelon around in your belly. Baby is ready for his arrival into the we're sure you are, too!

springtime for the artificial leaf

I have had this same problem for years. Two days ago I had a vessel burst in my left wrist for no reason. It was very painful and my wrist doubled in size from swelling.

The recall you are talking about is not on all cavaliers just certain years. It is for the starter relay and possibly the ignition switch if it was overheated. You can call your local GM dealer and give them your 17 digit vin and they can run a viss .

Plaid clad stoners sell concentrated cannabis called "butane hash oil" in little vials. An elderly hippie couple sells "medicated" hard candy. Some customers use wheelchairs, more have canes..

A classy looking round clock is located in between the center air vents. The front bucket seats are broad, comfortable and have moderate side bolstering. The center console is wide and it provides a large central storage area.

IANA cook, health nut or otherwise culinary educated. I have been trying to live healthy for the last couple of years though. I've been mostly lurking on a bunch of forums and the concensus seems to be that a reasonably balanced diet of meat/vegies is ok.

This is great! How clever! I just followed baby development the boring way reading baby development books, although I have to tell you about a brand new book I just started reading that takes the week-by-week to a whole new level. It's called “The Wonder Within You: celebrating your baby’s journey from conception to birth” by Carey Wickersham. It’s an awesome combination of week-to-week pregnancy information, what’s going on with the baby, “Did you know?” plus health advice about what to eat, cravings, nutrition, etc, BUT also with awesome 3D/4D pictures and videos you can link or QR with your phone to and see what your baby looks like at each week stage. No fruit comparisons, mind you, but even better than the typical week-to-week books, and so personal! It’s got mom stories and even a journal/note section to write your personal memories and letters to your baby. The pregnancy information is as up-to-date as it gets and it’s such a great keepsake. I want to get one for everybody I know who is expecting! I highly recommend it!
