When I was pregnant with Astrid, I signed up for weekly emails from Fit Pregnancy that updated me on the baby’s development and size.
Increasingly, towards the end of the pregnancy, the size analogies veered from nice, apt foods like oranges to oddly disturbing ones like pot roasts. TheBump.com has put together an all-fruit (olives? sweet potatoes? well, almost) table to keep you up-to-date on your baby’s size. Thanks for nixing the weird meat comparisons, guys!
(I’m not sure about the progression from cantaloupe to banana. Maybe the writers buy steroidal bananas…and anemic melons…?)
