Pregnant women must write all of the pregnancy calendars on the Internet that describe the size of your growing baby and uterus in terms of food items. I can't wait until week 12 when it'll be the size of a pickle and some ice cream!
Week 6: Your baby's length is now about 3 to 5 millimeters -- about the size of a peppercorn!
Week 7: A BB pellet.
Week 8: Your baby is now 10 to 13 millimeters long -- about the size of a cherry. From another book: A pinto bean!
Week 9: Your uterus is about the size of a grapefruit!
Week 10: The baby weighs close to 0.18 ounces and is the size of a small plum.
Week 11: Your baby is about the size of a large lime!
Week 12: No reference, but the size doubled in the past 3 weeks.
Week 13: Its about the size of a peach.
Week 14: Your baby is the size of your fist. [Does that mean its getting smaller?]
Week 15: Softball!
Today BioMom had her usual mid-week parananoia attack. Before I get a bunch of emails berating me for not giving her enough love and support, note that I am just documenting my subjective experience and not judging her. I know that she is jacked up with hormones and I am doing my best to reassure her, or at the very least to point her toward someone who can reassure her. And not the ultrasound machine.
I lost a pound! I'm not feeling any nausea. I was sad yesterday just like I was sad when I had miscarried!!!
Please let the next four weeks pass quickly!
