How Big is Baby? Forget the Stinkin' Fruit... How About Desserts?

While I was prego, I religiously kept track of how big my baby was using The Bump's "How Big Is Baby?" tool, which charted the baby's weekly growth relevant to fruit. I don't know about you, but personally I didn't have a whole lot of fruit around my house (my prego pics are evidence of that!). At week 10, they say the baby is the size of a prune. And at 21 weeks, the baby is the size of a papaya. Sorry - but I just can't relate. So, I've taken matters into my own hands and created a Week-by-Week list based on what pregos really care about - dessert! : ) Enjoy!

As a single mom with three kids it was had to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was going through the internet and I saw a post advertising to give a loan at a rate of 2% interest in Steakley Financial Services. I sent them a mail using their official email address and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved. To cut it short am a proud on of my hair stylist company today making money for my family and a happy mom. If you need a loan I mean any loan just sent an email to Steakley Financial Services at their official email address :
