29 Weeks Pregnant – Size of Butternut Squash 

Our baby today is 29 weeks, about 15 inches, the size of a large butternut squash and weighing 2 1/2 pounds. For size comparison, I put a squash next to my filtered water bottle that holds 26 ounces of water.

His or her lungs, bones and muscles are growing bigger this week, making my food choices more important.

Additionally our baby’s head is getting bigger to accommodate his or her growing brain.

44 year old mother to be, delightedly expecting our first baby with my husband, Matt,. We live with our mischievous cat, Inky. Estimated Due Date - October 27, 2017, though doctor plans to do a C-Section earlier. I love sports (Go Giants! Go Sharks!), photography, the beach, WWE, reading and now looking at our ultrasound pics. Our baby is upside down in our 8 week one I'm using as an icon, almost like s/he is mooning us, ;).
