fig inside of a grapefruit

Exciting news! According to the powers that be, I have somebody the size of a fig growing inside my uterus, which is now the size of a grapefruit. I bet your first thought is, but aren’t figs and grapefruit grown at different times of the year? Oh, that wasn’t your first thought?! Yes, Wren’s Nest will be expecting a new little birdie at the end of October and we are thrilled. A Halloween baby! Shall we call it Pumpkin?

It seemed more fun to write that I have a fig inside of a grapefruit than to just say I’m pregnant. Maybe this will be the new 12-week pregnancy euphemism? Speaking of pregnancy euphemisms, which ones do you like or dislike?

  • bun in the oven
  • expecting
  • with child
  • knocked up
  • preggers/preggo
  • on stork watch
  • in a delicate condition
  • in the family way
Let the wild ride begin… again!

  1. This really dates me, but my first thought is “Expecting” of the new discriptions, I like “Stork watch” Grandma Judy

  2. definitely “on stork watch” has to be my fav from your list.
    Congrats you 3 scratch that, you 4, so happy for you all!

  3. How about something completely original “Having another baby” ;>))) . …. I love the ultrasound!! And, a fig growing in a grapefruit is pretty sweet, too.
