My Baby - Week by Week Pregnancy

Week 18 - Meconium Happens

Your baby weighs about 6.5 ounces and is 13.97 centimeters long from crown to rump, or about the size of a large pickle.

The digestive system is starting to produce meconium, its first fecal matter. Some new moms are scared at the sight of it in their newborn's diapers and think something must be wrong with their baby, but it's perfectly normal and will only last a few days after birth.
