Well we are half way there!!! WOW! This pregnancy is going by SO MUCH FASTER than it did when I was pregnant with Kailey. I am really trying to enjoy every second I get with Kailey as I know my time will soon be split. It is hard to believe that there will soon be two little princesses in our house... Daddy better prepare himself!!
Going on this week:
Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. She's about the size of a cantaloupe She's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, she's measured from head to toe.) She's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for her digestive system. She's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in her bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).
