Fruit Update

Actually almost to the end of 32 weeks now... but here's the baby stats:

  • Weight: 3 and 3/4 lbs
  • Length: 16 and 3/4 inches
  • Random Fact: He has toenails now! (Ok, that's not really that exciting, I'll admit)

This mini watermelon is on the short side to represent the baby but the correct weight.  The baby-fruit-chart I've been using actually has a Jicama for 32 weeks but here's my issues with Jicamas:

-a lot of people don't know what they are (they look like a giant potato but taste like a spicy apple-carrot)
-an almost 4lb Jicama is nearly impossible to come by
-the Jicamas I did find at the store were slimy (they are NOT supposed to be slimy)
-Oh, and you pronounce Jicama like this: Hick-ah-ma... not JI-ca-ma, like my mom does.

I actually do like jicama... but usually can't eat a whole one by myself since Mr. Incredible doesn't go near them (something about a giant potato tasting like a spicy apple throws him for a loop).

This week marks the start of my twice a month dr. appointments... which I really am not excited about (now I have to drive to the dr, pee in a cup, step on a scale, cringe, wait around for the dr to show up and basically do not much, and then drive all the way home twice as often- yippee!) but am excited that we're getting closer to our big arrival.

Now that I'm re-reading this post I've decided that the baby having toenails is probably the most exciting thing here- so yay for toenails!

Here's a photo of a Jicama if you're dying to see one:
