Squishy Plums and Nectarines (and a pregnancy update)

Love this...stolen from a fun daddy-to-be blog I found - smonk you:

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 22 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 15 pounds

Stretch marks? Nope. 

Sleep: It's okay - mostly woken by cats, not baby.

Best moment this week: Found out we're having a little girl!

Movement: Lots of pokes throughout the day.

Food cravings: Not really cravings - just hungry.

Gender: Girl!

Labor Signs: None (thank goodness!)

Belly Button in or out? Beginning to emerge.

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.

What I am looking forward to: Starting the nursery!

Weekly Wisdom: First trimester = tiredness, waiting, and nausea. Second trimester = way more fun!

Milestones: 21-week ultrasound - baby is healthy! Found out sex - girl! Lots of movement!

And by the way, you should really check out the above mentioned daddy-to-be blog if you are at all interested in the world of baby. It really is hilarious. Here is an excerpt from one of my favorite posts so far:

We all hear stories of the food cravings women get during pregnancy. Sometimes it's weird stuff.

But what do you do if her craving is something you're totally objected to? Right now Staci's hankering squishy plums and nectarines. I'm totally disgusted by them...they are basically rotten fruit and she loves them.

But I want to make her happy so I went on the hunt for rotting, dying fruit.

There I was at the grocery store trying to pick out some squishy fruit. While most people feel the fruit for ripeness I was feeling it for death...

Seriously - check out the blog to read the rest. This one really made me laugh out loud!


  1. Hey Lauren...thanks for the shout out...Staci actually stopped eating squishy fruit for a bit but this week started craving it again so it was funny to see you wrote about it. Enjoying your blog too...Kenny.

  2. Thanks again for the laughs! Love your sense of humor :) I recommended your blog to a bunch of daddy-to-be's I know, I'm sure they'll appreciate another male perspective - there are so many mommy blogs out there. Keep up the great work!
