Mom Uses Fruits And Veggies To Show How Much Her Baby Grew During Pregnancy

When California designer and home decor shop owner Nicole Mendez was pregnant with her second child, she came up with a great way to document her growing belly.

Inspired by BabyCenter's "How big is your baby?" list, which uses corresponding fruits and vegetables to track a fetus' size throughout pregnancy, Mendez purchased the produce and held each one in front of her stomach at various times during her nine months.

"Having something tangible to hold up to your belly really helps you to visualize your baby's size, and makes you realize how fast they grow!" she told The Huffington Post.
