23 Weeks = Grapefruit

Today, I'm 23 weeks and 1 day pregnant, and when he's all curled up in the fetal position (not all stretched out!), our baby boy is approximately the size of a large grapefruit. Let's just pretend that makes sense. (An anonymous commenter just suggested that the grapefruit is representing baby's weight—and that makes more sense to me.)

By now, Grapefruit can hear loud sounds, like cars honking and dogs barking. Coincidentally, Danny just taught Scooter how to "speak" a few weeks ago, and it's our favorite trick of the moment. I hope we haven't been annoying Little Man.

Also, Grapefruit's sense of movement is well developed now, and he can feel when I dance. I'm sure this means he can also feel when I'm on the elliptical, and I can't help but wonder if he hates that thing as much as I do.

No changes on the symptoms front. Still feeling happy and healthy—and so, so blessed.

Just wanted to let you know (since I just barely found out) that the fruit comparison on the What to Expect App, which is what I am assuming you are going by, the fruit relates to the weight of the baby, not the size or length :)

If that were true, he was super heavy last week when he was a spaghetti squash. :P I use the Bump and Baby Center. I just go with whichever one I like most that week. Some foods represent weight (I try to skip those ones), some represent total size, and some represent length. I bet you're right about the grapefruit, though. :)

It must be great to feel your little guy dance :)
