Week 19 – Size of an Heirloom Tomato 

This week our baby is 18 weeks along which is the size of an heirloom tomato. While smaller than the bell pepper of a week ago it, and the baby, are longer in length at 6 inches. For size comparison, I put my Faith rubber wristlet on top of the tomato.

This week many exciting developments are occurring. His or her arms and legs are now the same length and in proportion to the head and torso.

The baby is undergoing many sensory developments. In particular the senses of touch and hearing are getting even stronger than before. Some experts recommmed starting to talk and sing to baby, which I’ve been doing for weeks now. I hope our baby enjoys the songs off key as they are and feels the love and excitement I feel during this special time.
