It's the final countdown...(enter electric guitar)

Mexico, in seven days people. I cannot wait for a hint of color on my pasty white skin. I cannot wait for a virgin Pina Colada. Mexico, here I come. My poochie belly and all!

Today I had the full ultrasound. It took a full hour! I forgot how painful it is to hold 32 ounces of water in your bladder for an hour. Let me just tell you, it is not uncomfortable, it really hurts. I got to a point where I got nauseous! Seriously nauseous from holding in pee, so I went. Yup, I gave the finger to the written instructions and emptied my bladder. It felt so good...for about 5 minutes. Then I had to go again and didn't let myself. By the time I got to the ultrasound office, I was beginning to sweat. When the ultrasound tech came to get me I walked hunched over to the room. She asked if I needed to relieve myself a bit. "Oh hell yeah!" She made me go in a cup and only let me empty 7 ounces. Don't tell, but I really peed 9 oz. It felt too good to stop.

The ultrasound looked perfect. Me official due date is Sep. 19th. The Dr. had me at the 18th, so the whole date fib, was, well pointless. But I got to see so many cool things in my little alien baby. The eye sockets are forming and the legs move all over. She told us the baby was about 2 inches long, not including the legs. With legs around 4 in. My uterus is right below my belly button. Scary! It should be at my belly button at 20 weeks, but I am not surprises since every appt. with Mason they told me I measured large. I guess I make big babies! Let's just hope this one stays comfy until at least 37 weeks. I hear guacamole does great things for babies in utero...did I mention I am going to Mexico next week?

Did I mention that I HATE YOU for getting to go to Mexico next week? OH! WAIT ! I only mentioned it in my head I never really said it out loud. I HATE YOU FOR GETTING TO GO TO MEXICO NEXT WEEK!!

Glad to hear your ultrasound was good and that baby is growing! Keep us posted!

Yay! Maybe when you come back from Mexico you will have decided to have your bambino at home in the tub, eh? ;* Most of the women of the world birth at home. And you're veerrry crunchy with a midwive and all. I can't wait to find out the identity of your little pea pod! It's really a sick thing, but turtle lotion(mexican specialty) is supposed to be amazing for stretch marks. Just hide it good in your suitcase so it doesn't get confiscated. And don't tell me if you buy any. Love- Kooky Veg Head

Napagirl and I pretty much share the same brain (I know, scary) and I was seriously going to say everything she did. So, see Napagirl comment. :-)

I too am very jealous about Mexico. I can't wait till Sept. when I am going to Vegas for the first time. Most of our so called vacations are always spent visiting family all over the U.S. So have a blast for me too and share any ideas about traveling with a 2 year old.

Blessed Be
