Starting the Third Trimester

Depending on which source you use, the third trimester starts at week twenty seven, which I have completed, or week twenty eight, which I am in now. In honor of having reached this milestone, it’s time to post some more bump photos.

28 Weeks – Our Baby the Size of a Large Eggplant 

Today our baby is 28 Weeks the size of a large eggplant at almost 15 inches long and 2 1/4 lbs in weight. There weren’t too many eggplants at the grocery store, so despite burying the largest one this probably is bit smaller than our baby is in reality.

25 Weeks Size of a Head of Cauliflower (and Rutabaga)

One of the fun things Matt and I have shared during my pregnancy is finding the right vegetables and fruits for our baby’s week by week size comparison as defined by BabyCenter. Some of these have been easier than others. This week, however, we had to do a substitution and use the vegetable recommended by The Bump.

At 25 weeks pregnant, our baby is the size of a head of cauliflower, measuring about 13 1/2 inches and and weighing about 1 and 1/2 pounds. For comparison to cauliflower size, i put the vegetable near an apple and an orange, both fruits I am trying to eat more of this trimester.
