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?
