Let’s check Yoda’s progress this week!
According to babygaga.com:
Over the past three weeks your magical-gro baby has managed to add on yet another 2 full inches of length (totaling about 4.5 inches) and now weighs a whopping 3.5 ounces!
Guess what? Your little lollipop is not so bobble-headed anymore!
Yep, your baby’s head-to-body ratio is starting to even out, as the rest of their body – including their arms and legs (the better to kick you with!) plays catch-up.
One of the most anticipated moments in pregnancy is the “quickening” or the first time you undeniably feel your child move inside of you.
In some cultures a woman is not even considered pregnant untilshe experiences the quickening!
Women claim to feel it as early as 14 weeks. That said, other women laugh at the thought of that woman cherishing a fart that’s rumbling in her small intestines.
In general, it’s safe to say that after 18 – 20 weeks, all women will experience the quickening as a definitive non-fart poke or prod from within their womb.
Those sweet little flutters will evolve into pokes, prods, and even outright painful kicking as your break-dancing baby-cakes grow in size and seek ways to straighten out in their increasingly cramped quarters.
If you had that gender ultrasound right now, which most doctors recommend at about this time, you might see your little one sucking their thumb, not to mention the necessary signifiers to let you know whether you’ve got a wee lad or lassie.
And what size is Yoda this week?
Yoda is an avocado!
