fruit salad omelette

There are so many pregnancy books out there - and for this I am glad. There is a wealth of information out there to explain all the ins and outs of your inner bits.
Each book has a slightly different approach (I have four that I am reading simultaneously) but it seems the one things that they have in common is using food comparisons to give you an idea of the sizes of things. For example a week or two ago my uterus was the size of a large grapefruit, the amniotic sack the size of a chicken egg and the fetus the size of a large grape: so at the moment we are referring to the baby as our 'fruit salad omelette' :)

Just wait until water melon makes an appearance! I hope you are feeling well? If you suffer morning sickness, eat a plain bicuit or dry cracker before you get out of bed. That should help.

Hi Toffeeapple,
The watermelon comment made me laugh :)
Overall I am feeling quite good - there is definitely a lot of morning sickness though (not just in the morning either) and so my bedside table looks a bit like a smorgasboard - lots of crackers and snacks. But in the scheme of things - a little vomitting isn't too bad - at least it means all is going well.
