2/18/15 - Week 19: Mango

Today the baby is the size of...
A MANGO!


(We couldn't find a 6 inch wide tomato, so another website said he's also the size of a mango!)

Look who's practically as big as the softball and already weighs half a pound! That's pretty crazy because I'm almost halfway through this pregnancy marathon and that means in the second half he will gain a ton of weight! (Hopefully not too much...go easy on Mommy, little guy!)

So this week, he's covered in a greasy white substance, vernix caseosa, which shields him from the amniotic fluid. Otherwise he would come out of this nine month bath looking all wrinkled!

Also this week, he is going through a growth spurt and his legs are now proportionate to his arms. Which might explain a few TINY MOVEMENTS I've been feeling!  Every now and then, there is a tiny little poke or ripple and I think that's him saying hi!

Of course it happens more often after I eat something sweet... So he obviously has a sweet tooth like his Mommy!
