I found this handy chart on thebump.com. It compares Baby Shock to a piece of fruit/food each week to show how big the baby is. I think they should find a different fruit for the end result!

Hi! Congratulations!! I love the baby blog... brings it all back!! As a side note... when I was on the bump, they used to have a cucumber as the final vegetable, but loads of people complained that it was too unrealistic, so they changed it to watermelon. Personally, I much preferred to live in denial and imagine delivering a cucumber... watermelon just makes me squirm!!ReplyDelete
