From Sweet Potato to Mango

January 4, 2010 at 10:25 pm 7 comments

19 weeks 0 days

According to our babies are now the size of Mangos (last week they were sweet potatoes and next week they become cantaloupes and then bananas, but aren’t bananas smaller then cantaloupes?). The fruit is sometimes a wee bit confusing to me…

It feels good to be at 19 weeks (and M looks great, if you have not checked out her blog, go look at her bump!).

I have discovered, finally, a good Parenting book called The Rules to Parenting, and it’s actually really good, and makes sense (yea! A good book! With no silliness about how life is so hard you are going to want to hide in a closet, well there is one minor suggestion like that, but it’s just one “rule” not a whole book of whinging about being a parent – like some OTHER BOOKS I tried to read that bitched constantly about lack of time, yet she had time to write a book?).

Wednesday is the OB appointment! So happy that I can work from 7:30 to 3:30 on Wednesday so I can finally meet the OB! Can not wait to meet the woman who will help bring our babies into this world!

    I always thought it was weird that all of the size comparisons relate to food. Maybe food is the only universal comparison?

    Hey, in case you didn’t realize, I’m no longer posting pics on the blog (other than the last monthly chair pics). This is because I use Picasa (also a google product) to send out family photo albums and it shares storage space with Blogger, so if I post to the blog, it duplicates the pics and takes up more space. I do, however, post pics on facebook if you are on there.

    Here’s where I confess I never read a book….

    I read Dr. Sears, The baby book and still use it as a reference. I also have a book written by some pediatricians from sick kids that I really enjoyed too. It’s good to read to mentally prepare as long as you don’t freak yourself out. That’s what I started doing as her due date approached and I had to put the books away.

    The whole fruit thing confuses the socks off of me as well. Cantaloupes are CLEARLY larger than bananas. But whatever. =)

    Just stopped by M’s blog. What a *cute* baby bump! =D

    Looking forward to hearing about your meeting with the OB!
