Your baby is the size of a what?

One of the fun things about pregnancy is looking up how big your baby is each week. The problem I have with this is that they use things like bananas, avocados and kumquats. First off – bananas? My baby is oblong and curved? I know they’re just trying to give you an idea, but imagining the baby as a banana is just…off. Avocados? They didn’t tell me whether it was a hass avocado or a slimcado – because there’s a huge difference between the two. I’d like to know. Is it a big honkin’ avocado, or a teeny shriveled black one? And a kumquat? What’s a kumquat? One of the gals in my prego group posted this most excellent link that clears up the question of “how big is my baby” pretty well.
