We’re going to do the week-by-week pregnancy a little different for the time being. Since Yoda is measuring a little small, I’m going to do the pregnancy weeks by LMP (last menstrual period) until Yoda catches up. If Yoda somehow measures ahead, I’ll still do it by LMP.
What’s Yoda’s size this week?
According to baby-gaga.com:
Your astonishingly tiny baby has been growing as fast as possible, almost doubling in size in the past three weeks, which they’ll re-do within the next three weeks!
Your tiny champion still weighs less than a quarter of an ounce but has already completed the most critical stage of their development.
Using Doppler technology, you can hear their tiny rapid fetal heartbeats this week (145-165 beats per minute!). Chances for miscarriage are greatly reduced when the heartbeat can be detected, so take a sigh of relief if you’ve been needing one. It hasn’t been an easy ten weeks!
In other digestive news, you’re now carrying a tiny poo-factory as your little one now sports a functioning digestive tract capable of moving food all the way through to their bowels!
And the final shiny gold star on their fetal behavior chart for the week: your little scrapper has already developed defense mechanisms to protect them on reflex!
And what size is Yoda this week?
Yoda is the size of a prune!
