Tickers

So, I've noticed that there are a few of us with the same or similar tickers in our signatures, but for the most part we have different ones. I was just curious as to why you picked the ticker that you use currently? If you don't have one, why not? For BTDT moms, did you use the same one last time you were pregnant?

I picked mine because I think the bump's size comparison with fruits and veggies is really neat. Every week I like announcing to DH that "this week our baby is the size of a ______!" Although this week, I think comparing our baby to a banana is a little weird.

I have the same, because I liked it in the beginning getting a sense of how big baby is. But lately it's annoying me and I think I'll change it, it doesn't seem as accurate anymore. In my world, last week's cantaloupe is much bigger that this week's banana!! Lol!

Oh, and I also thought the very early baby images looked a little creepy. A raspberry or a sweet pea was much nicer looking Smile

I had a different one last time. Once we find out the sex of the baby I will probably add a separate one that shows boy/girl. I picked the one I did because I liked seeing the baby in the stomach with it telling what's going on this week with the baby.

I keep changing mine because I can't find one I love. I wanted a countdown to my delivery date so I could see how much more time we had to prepare.

I thought it was weird they put the cantaloupe before the banana too. Maybe after the banana it will seem more accurate.

Yeah, we like the fruit & veggie one too. I don't think that ticker existed the last time I was pregnant, and I thought it was a cute one. And my 5yo DD loves to find out what fruit we are this week! She gets so excited about it, and she tells everyone "Our baby is a mango this week!". I think it's a great way to explain to kids how the baby is growing.

I do like the fruit tickers, but I like to see what the baby is developing this week, and approximately how much he/she weighs. Each week I read on babycenter what's going on this week, and I'm always telling my dh "this week the baby is the size of a cantaloup!"

I had a different ticker last time. I didn't want to jinx myself by using the same one I used when I had a miscarriage. :/

Same ticker as last time. I like to see how big the baby is in there and what new developments are happening! I think this is the most informational and visual. Smile

At first I had the blue one that says baby's development and how old they are... but I thought that too many people had that one, so I went with the alternaticker... they give a lot more options to choose from!
