Baby Center is mocking me

1 Comment

Yeah, so, I get these weekly updates for Baby Center in my inbox.

They remind me how far along I am, where the spawn is in its development, changes my body is going through at this stage, etc. “Your baby is the size of a lemon. … Your nausea has probably subsided, but the urge to kill your coworkers has increased.

Today, I received one for 15 weeks:

Baby Center: “You’ve probably gained about 5 pounds by now.”
Me: “Fuck you, Baby Center.”

Five pounds! HA! Yeah, sure, I’ve put on 5 pounds … in my face! And about 20 pounds everywhere else.

You’ve probably noticed the urges to kill the writers at Baby Center have increased.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

One thought on “Baby Center is mocking me

  1. It’s entirely possible some or all of it is retained water. Charming thought though that is. The good news being, you lose that weight really fast after the baby is born.
