Our Pumpkin is a Large Mango! (23 weeks!)

Hmmm, yes I do realize that we had a mango stage a while back, but for some reason The Bump does not give you a new comparison every week after you hit 22 weeks, they give you one every few weeks. So, that meant going elsewhere to find something to compare our sweet Emery to. Alas, she is now a LARGE mango! ;o)

Now what does Baby Center have to say about this week? Well, first they gave me the large mango, see above picture. The, turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

Things are good so far, I have my next OB appointment on Friday and then I'm sure I'll have my GD testing at my next appointment. There are still some mornings I'm feeling a little queasy, but usually it passes. Even some afternoons it's shows up. Maybe it's the heat? I still worry a lot, but I guess after all we've been through that's normal. Or I could be a nut.... never know.

Summer is going well and we are managing to stay quite busy. Sunday afternoon Chase and I will be going to Galveston w/some friends for a couple of days, then we will be headed back to the beach for the fourth. The following Friday we leave for Disney World and Chase is determined that we are having a princess birthday party for me while we're there. We shall not disappoint! ;o) I feel like summer will be over in the blink of an eye and while I'm glad that October is creeping closer, I don't want the lazy days of summer to end any time soon!

These posts are awesome. The comparisons of babies to fruit etc always boggle my mind! o.O
