From the moment you find out you’re pregnant, you’ll want to know how big your baby is at each stage of development. And thinking of your baby’s size in terms of millimetres or centimeters doesn’t mean a whole lot. It’s far easier to relate the size of your baby to fruits and vegetables, particularly as you see them in the supermarket every time you shop!
