I reinstalled the BabyCenter app onto my iPhone shortly after testing positive with Baby Fox. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the BabyCenter app, it’s actually a really great resource that keeps you updated weekly on your baby’s growth and development, tells you how much it weighs, and gives you an idea of how big the baby is by comparing it to a fruit.
A few weeks back I received a push notification that the baby was the size of a kumquat. I immediately took a screenshot and sent it to TJ with the message “WTF is a kumquat??!!”
You can tell me that I’m uneducated, it’s fine. But I’ve never heard of a kumquat in my entire life, so off to Google I went to learn that it’s the long distance cousin of the orange.
This week, Baby Fox is allegedly the size of an avocado … and while I understand what they mean while making the fruit reference, I can’t help but visualize THIS:
And when I skipped ahead four weeks in the app to see how big the baby will be according to fruit standards when he/she is twenty weeks, I still can’t help but visualize THIS:
Is anybody with me on this, or am I just an idiot? Actually, before you answer that, let’s take a look at the random baby shit that I’ve thought and Googled over the past twelve weeks (I’m 16 weeks for the record, but you’re technically “pregnant” before you’re pregnant … because that makes a whole lot of sense …)
How do I not poop during labor?
Can I REALLY not eat sushi while pregnant?
Fine. What sushi CAN I eat while pregnant?
Can I REALLY not eat blue cheese while pregnant?
Why is it called morning sickness when I’m nauseous ALL day?
Will my boobs stay this big after pregnancy?
I wish that I was as skinny as I was six months ago when I thought that I was fat.
When am I going to actually look pregnant with a real baby instead of just a food baby?
Holy hell, I’m never going to get a solid night of sleep. EVER AGAIN.
If I use my laptop on my lap will I fry the baby?
Can you push out a baby while on the toilet?
I think I want a C-Section but what if they puncture my organs? That would totally happen to me.
What does the mucus plug look like?
Was that gas or did I just feel the baby move?
Where can I get one of those “Feed me and tell me I’m pretty” shirts?
Would you be embarrassed if your recent Google search history went public? I would be!
What’s the silliest thing that you’ve Googled this week?
