As of yesterday, our baby is supposed to be roughly 5.5 inches from head to rump - about the size of a large baking potato (or large bell pepper). The baby weighs about 7 ounces.
During week 19, the baby will grow to about 6 inches (head to rump) - or about the size of a slice of watermelon or large heirloom tomato.
The mid-wife I saw Tuesday stated that the baby was going to have a "growth explosion" over the next few weeks.
For example, by about the 4th of July - only about 2 weeks away, the baby will be about 10.5 inches long (from head to heel) - the size of a carrot!! And weight about 3/4 lb!!!
Grow, baby, grow!!!!!!
