Week by Week – 25 and 26

by Lindsay on 06/21/2011

For weeks 25 through 28, baby is comparable to an eggplant (about 13.5-14.5 inches).  I will include the produce in the next pregnancy post.

When I was outside for a summer school recess this week, a student (going into 2nd grade) asked, “What’s wrong with your belly?”

“There’s a baby in there,” I replied.

“How are you going to get it out?” he asked.

GULP…uhh…”The baby will come out when it’s ready,” I said, trying to dodge the real question.

With the age group I work with, I still get many questions like: Do you have a baby in your tummy?  Are you pregnant? Are you going to have a baby?  So when an adult, without hesitation, asks “When are you due?”  I am taken aback, forgetting that yes, I am obviously pregnant.
