(Holy crap! 16 weeks already?!?)
Your Baby This Coming Week
Your baby now weighs more than the surrounding placenta. She measures about 4.4 to 4.8 inches (about 11 to 12cm) from crown to rump and weighs about 3.5 ounces (100g). She is positioned halfway between your pubic bone and your navel.
Fat, which is important for your baby's metabolism and heat production is beginning to form around this time.The placenta, which will weigh more than a pound at full term, is also developing rapidly. It is now a large and well-established network of blood vessels responsible for exchanging nutrients and waste to support your baby.
P.S. I included a pic to show approximately how big our baby now is, measurement crown to rump (for those of you who aren't familiar with the crown to rump measurement, this does not include the measurement of the legs).
When I measured it out on a piece of paper and laid my pen next to the line I had drawn, I could not believe my eyes!!
This kid is growing like crazy!
