Half Way to Go!

We are officially 1/2 way through our pregnancy! Only 20 more weeks until we meet our little one! This week is (despite what my belly really looks like!) CANTALOUPE week!

Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now (ours is actually measuring 11 ounces in the 52nd percentile). He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel. (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, he's measured from head to toe.) He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system.
