Babies and Fruit

If you are or have been pregnant, one of the mysterious things that you will notice is that at every milestone of pregnancy, the books and websites will compare the size of your baby to a piece of fruit!

When I first found out I was pregnant (at 5 weeks), my baby was an appleseed;

At 8 weeks, a raspberry (yum!);

At 14 weeks, a lemon;

At week 21 a banana;

From weeks 29-32 a squash;

And now??

You guessed it;

A watermelon!

nb. Pregnancy weeks are counted from the last menstrual period. (From week 5-20, measurements are taken from crown to rump. From week 21 on, measurements are taken from head to toe.)
