    Baby seems to stay a papaya for 3wks? ..from 22-25wks and then changes to an eggplant? I wonder why!!??? It has changed every week up until this point! Maybe babies growth slows down at this stage. I expected it to change when i turned 23wks and was surprised it stayed the same! Noticed others now at 24wks and they are still a papaya!! Roll on 25wks when baby is an eggplant.

    There's not a great deal of difference in size between a papaya and an eggplant so maybe you're right, baby could be slowing down. I'd noticed myself when I looked at the list of fruit sizes.

    hee hee..yes, they probably did run out of fruit. Miss Cakes, i see you are a papaya too! I actually have never held a papaya and googled it and its quite big actually. I was quite shocked! Mind you, i do have a big bump! I dont think the fruit sizes are accurate, just thought it was funny that its changed every week up until this point!

    I noticed this too. I love logging in on here to see what size fruit bubs is compared to and when for the third week it didn't change, I was gutted lol. They ought to come up with other things to compare with. I think it's not only down to size but also length and weight too. Wait while bubs is the size of a beach ball... Although I already feel I am lol xx:haha:

    I noticed that too, I like my weekly fruit updates so was dissappointed when it didn't change for a few weeks!

    Look on the bright side though it means you have that bit longer before the scary watermelon! Lol

    It's true! My weekly pregnancy app on my iPhone says the baby will gain about 1/2 a pound between now and next Sunday. Surely that's bigger than a papaya?! I was so disappointed when mine hadn't changed again this week! I think I might get a different ticker because it has annoyed me so much :haha:

    we should come up with our own fruit or vegetable for the in-between sizes. I have seen bump pictures, and the baby does NOT stay the same size for 3 weeks! :)

    these are from another site.....

    22 weeks- spaghetti squash

    23 weeks-large mango

    24-ear of corn

    25- eggplant

    26-English cucumber

    27-large head of cauliflower

    28- Chinese cabbage

    i THINK the fruit comparison is just for approx for length of baby. so while LO is packing on the lbs, he/she may not be actually growing much iykwim. i could be wrong.

    As someone who gave birth to their baby at 23.4 weeks...they are actually bigger than a papaya for the most part at that stage anyways...and most certainly all are bigger than an eggplant. The average 23-25 week preemie is 12-16 inches long. I suppose they mean curled up...but even then they are bigger!

    Tickers make me laugh now that Ive had a preemie...they are off on a lot of things!
