Week 22

This is pulled from What to Expect When You’re Expecting…

“Forget about ounces, baby.  This week, we’re talking weight of 1 pound and length of nearly 8 inches.  What’s your baby hearing?  The sound of your voice and that of your husband, your heart beating, the whoosh-whoosh of your blood circulating through your body, the dog barking, sirens, a loud TV.  And what’s your baby tasting?  Pretty much everything you’re tasting (so pass the salad).”

And my version…

This baby only weighs a pound even though it feels like it should weigh 3 or 4 already.  How could you possibly be so big already?  You’ve still got four months to go!  Say goodbye to your non-maternity clothes – it’s all stretchy pants from here on out.  And what’s that baby hearing?  The sound of his/her older sister saying – “Mommy, Mommy! Dance with me/play with me/read books with me” and the sound of his/her mother saying “Macy, you CANNOT climb on top of the couch!  No milk on Mommy’s bed!  Don’t play with your food!”  And what is your baby tasting?  Let’s be honest here – chocolate.  With an apple thrown in for good measure.

I’m sure you can guess which version got published.  🙂
