Least Encouraging Pregnancy Email-Update Ever; Alternately Entitled: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet!

I rec. this email and it made me laugh...and cry a little bit. Well, not really on the crying part--but sheesh!
Not very encouraging!
Oh, and by the way, apparently my baby is the size of a "nutter-butter" whatever that is!
(some type of cookie? right? but, why are we comparing my fetus to food!?)
Welcome to the first week of your second trimester. You may even be able to hold down a bite of food. Take advantage of your new robust status and catch a movie or take that last pre-baby vacay. Do it now, because in a few months you'll be too big to sausage yourself into the airplane seats.

what you're thinking

My skinny jeans don't fit, my fat clothes don't fit.

your body

Your belly may be popping out a bit now. If you're feeling "huge" already, just wait. You ain't seen nothing yet!

So are they trying to scare women away from being pregnant or what??

Yes, a Nutter Butter is a delicious, peanut shaped cookie. Great, now I want some.

Hopefully your next update will be a little nicer!

That's a horrible email. Aren't those things supposed to be encouraging and uplifting?

They sure know how to make an already self-concious momma even more so, huh?

I never understood why they compare a baby to food. The emails I used to get always compared Ryleigh to fruit.... I like yours, comparing a baby to sweets, much better, haha
