MASSIVE CRIB RECALL! Must Read for Parents and Parents to Be!

Hey readers,

I just snagged this update from a friend’s Facebook status. Apparently there is a huge recall in the works of drop-side cribs. I have not been able to find a list of crib brands, but apparently anything with a drop-side crib is being considered unsafe for babies. You can read the story here at CBS News online. PLEASE pass this along!

32 Weeks – Baby Jicama


Your baby is taking up more and more space in your uterus and weighs as much as a large jicama — about 3 3/4 pounds. (Length: about 16 3/4 inches, head to heel.)

By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she’ll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

I’m not real sure what a jicama is, but it must be big b/c I’m a gigantic. You’ll see in the weekly belly pic – to come later this afternoon! Stay tuned!
