I find it very funny that when describing what the size of a baby is while in utero, food is always used as the analogy. (at least in all the baby books I've read and the websites I've gone to)
First it was the size of a pea.
Then it was the size of a plum.
Then a lemon, a grapefruit, a turnip (my personal favorite),
and right now? The baby is a green pepper.
And why is it that when the baby only weighs 5-7 ounces, I've already gained 10 lbs? These questions and many other pregnancy related ones have stumped me! Although most things can easily stump me these days. :-)
And speaking of babies....we are eagerly anticipating the birth of our new nephew by Josh and Cindy (well--Cindy will be doing the hard work). We have a poll going for when the baby will come and how much he'll weigh, etc. but most of us have already had our dates pass by with no baby to count for. Come on Baby Festus!!! (that's his name while in utero).
