week by week

Addicted to week by week websites.
I am a tad embarrassed to say that one of the highlights of my week is looking up new baby info online. There are about 20 week by week pregnancy sites out there and I swear I have been to them all, at least 19 times. Most of them are weird, try to sell me stuff and are written poorly. They tell me gross stuff, like that my baby is covered in hair and a cheesy wax substance and this week he/she probably produced her first baby poo ( meconium). They give measurements in cm and grams. I am a science teacher and live occasionally in the metric world, but still can’t picture what 300 grams is. I am thankful for the one site that tells me my unborn child is the size of a very large heirloom tomato. That I get. For some reason, it is easier for me to bigger a tomato thing inside me rather than a 300 gram cheesy, hairy pooping fetus. Yet still, week after week I look forward to reading about the new growth or changes going on with in me. It gives me some small insight as to what the heck is going on inside me.
