32 Weeks – Baby Jicama


Your baby is taking up more and more space in your uterus and weighs as much as a large jicama — about 3 3/4 pounds. (Length: about 16 3/4 inches, head to heel.)

By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she’ll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

I’m not real sure what a jicama is, but it must be big b/c I’m a gigantic. You’ll see in the weekly belly pic – to come later this afternoon! Stay tuned!

  2. Jícama (pronounced /ˈhɪkəmə/, Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxikama], from Nahuatl xicamatl, [ʃiˈkamatɬ]), also Yam and Mexican Turnip, is the name of a native Mexican vine, although the name most commonly refers to the plant's edible tuberous root. Jícama is one species in the genus Pachyrhizus that is commonly called yam bean, although the "yam bean" sometimes is another name for jícama. The other, major species of yam beans are also indigenous within the Americas.I had to look it uo lol! HTH
