Don’t panic, I am not pregnant again! 🙂 I am just catching up and giving myself a chance to get over the trauma of childbirth before writing about it.

39 weeks pregnant – Our baby is the size of a watermelon

“I carried a watermelon!’

The thought of our baby being the size of a watermelon brings tears to my eyes!

Bob loves watermelon! It is one of her favourite fruits but she has to get me to remove every trace of the seeds before she can enjoy it.


At 39 weeks baby is still growing and his brain is rapidly developing. My induction is scheduled for Thursday so it won’t be long until we meet our ‘little’ bundle!

    Watermelon! Oh gosh thats huge! I am so scared to give birth! One day 😉


    Oh my gosh, that is a big size to be carrying around in a belly. I’m so terrified of the whole pregnancy malarky. Mothers deserve medals for carrying a baby for 9 months! x


    Aww what a great way of looking at it! I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well!


    Isn’t it strange to think that you can carry something that size inside of your body and push it out yourself. The female body is amazing!


    Comparing the size to a watermelon really brings home how big they are at this stage!
