This is very random, but I guess most posts are random....and this has just been on my mind lately. I completely love looking at my friends (and their friends) blogs! I think that they are so fun and exciting, sometimes even enlightning! But I have noticed a trend among the blogs of expectant mothers. The "BABY TICKER" I think that this is an exciting and clever way to actually see and put into numbers the progress that baby and mom are making! And I completely love to see the content of the posts in relation to the number of weeks the mother is in her pregnancy...funny how the early weeks are being sick and tired...middle weeks are cleaning and sleeping...later weeks are just expressing their desire to be done...and trying really hard to be nice to those around her...This is so neat to see, but when I see the baby tickers, more specifically the one on my best friends blog, it says that she has 22 days left and you see this sweet little fully developed baby floating peacefully around enjoing the ample space to turn this way and that. I say that this is false advertising and I feel really bad for those expectant mothers. Because any woman who has 22 days to go in her pregnancy knows that there are only frequent trips to the bathroom as a result of the baby trying to jam it's fist into your bladder...and bruises on your ribs as a result of the future soccer player practicing it's game winning kicks. To me, nothing is graceful or peaceful about having 22 days to go. So to my friends and family who are expecting, Keep up the good work! It will all be over before you know it! I used to be baby hungry when my friends were in their "middle months." I now am SOOOO NOT baby hungry.
