The babycenter essential guide to pregnancy & birth

When we were first pregnant (she says longingly), one of the first books we purchased was this one.  I usually prefer anything hard copy but though the book is lovely, I was happy when a friend, almost immediately, linked us to the oft better known website.

How else would I track my baby’s growing size in fruitiness, its vegetable potential?  Were we still pregnant, this week, I’d have a blueberry inside me.  In two more weeks a grape. 

Alas, we’re not in season at the moment. But months to come we’re hoping for good crop.  A seed that turns to kumquat, then lemon, then squash.  A hefty cauliflower.  A beefy jicama.  A pumpkin at last.  The whole cornucopia.
