This is an old page back from when my blog was used to document my second pregnancy. I hope you enjoy my alternative take at fetus sizing!

 

I’m tired of my baby being compared to a fruit week after week. With every weekly update that I post on Fridays, I’m finding (fairly) common household items that compare to the average-sized fetus.

I’ll post the object I discover on this page every week, within 24 hours of posting my weekly updates. Enjoy!

(Please note, through week 20 all measurements correspond to fetus size from head to “rump.” After week 20 measurements are head to feet.)
