Easter is on it’s way, and you’re probably just thinking which chocolate egg shall you shell out on, especially with chocolate companies making all kinds of tasty, colorful, and even weird eggs in all sizes.
Well, one parenting blog decided to create a chart in which they showed the size of various eggs in comparison to the size of a woman’s cervix during childbirth. We don’t know why they decided to do that, but hey, Thanks!
The “chart” was shared on blog Kalma Baby Baby, and it shows the full range. Starting off from the tiny 1cm Mini Egg, then going on to the 2cm Lindt egg, followed by the 3cm Dime Dairy Milk egg, then the 4cm Smarties Egg, and the 5cm regular, actual boiled egg, the beloved 6cm Kinder Surprise egg, to the 7cm Milkybar egg and 8cm Cadbury Buttons egg. The 9cm Rolo egg is just 1cm shy of the final stage: the 10cm Cadbury’s Easter Egg.
When the cervix is at the “Cadbury’s Easter egg” stage, or fully dilated, the woman is ready to give birth to her baby.
Royal Devon and Exeter Maternity Services shared the chart on Facebook, and thousands of people shared it and commented on it.
The reactions, however, have been mixed. Some people wrote that “Easter is canceled”, and they will never look at chocolate Easter eggs in the same way, while others loved it and thought it was nice to teach people something in a fun way.
