Shopping BabySize: Week 36

By Kate |

Shopping BabySize: my favorite finds for babies, kids and moms based on the approximate size of the wee babe in my belly. Or, not so wee as the case may be.

The baby is now gaining about an ounce a day and weighs almost 6 pounds – or the size of a crenshaw melon – and is about 18.5 inches long. This whole Shopping BabySize experiment has really been a lesson in produce, because I had no idea what a crenshaw melon was. But I am learning about all kinds of melons since they’re easy to compare to baby’s size, apparently. It’s really fun to imagine how bit the baby actually is! Both of my kids were born around 38 pounds and my son weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces and my daughter was 6 pounds 12 ounces. Given the fact that I weigh at least 5 pounds more than I did when I gave birth to my other kids, I’m assuming the means the baby in my stomach actually weighs more like 11 pounds. Clearly the only explanation for this extra weight is an extra big baby. Right? Right.
