I literally got Dr. off the tennis court on Friday, to give me another scan.

While still sweating and drinking his OJ, he searched and searched and would you believe it - the little sucker was still curled up like Dinky. Anyway, he looked and looked and said that he can't see a penis or testes, so he is gonna say GIRL again, but will confirm in 2 weeks.

If peanut comes out a boy, he is so gonna be wearing PINK!

This weekend was nice. I got to eat sushi in Belize city (without the raw fish), and then tacos in Chetumal. The tacos were guuuuud, with all the salsas and guacamole. I hope that we can go again before it's too uncomfy for me to travel. Oh, and this weekend Peanut's dad finally got a haircut, so all was right with the world. With the new haircut came a bright and happy new mood for me, and I stayed that way all weekend.

In Chetumal we were looking at the baby supplies, and I came across a hooded teddybear towel...then a duckie towel. I said to Jaime, the only thing better would be a FROG towel. Lo and behold, they had one!! Of course I bought it immediately.

Peanut's dad is on holiday this week, and using the time to move in. This time will show whether or not we can live together or murder each other. He has this annoying habit of always wanting to eat what I'm eating, even if he has just finished eating himself. He's lucky he's so cute or it would bug me more. Now I have to deal with dogs AND men begging for food, ayayay. If he doesn't watch out, he'll end up looking like this and I'll have to make a pigpen outside for him and replace his plate with a trough.

1 Week Less Pregnant

Here's the peanut at 21/22/23 weeks. Based on the size, Doc thinks I am around 22 weeks pregnant, but who knows!!! She (he?) is all curled up like my mom's dog Dinky with the private bits secure and hidden. GRR. My mom is harassing me to have another ultrasound as soon as possible because she's desperate to know the sex. I wonder who peanut will look like?

I wouldn't worry too much peanut. Your cousins came out cute, despite genetics.

My first kid was a fur kid

Techie's been with me 8 years now... I keep telling him that peanut won't be a boy because HE's my best boy. I can't wait to take pics of the baby sleeping next to him, and then later, pics of a toddler tormenting him hehe. Poor Techie doesn't know what he's in for!

P.S. the scars on his nose are from fighting, I guess, when he was missing for 5 days.
P.P.S. Note my nice pregnancy acne. Nobody tells you that you get your high school complexion back when you're pregnant!

Tropical storms, boobs, butt and baby supplies

What a rainy weekend! It rained non-stop from Friday to Monday (tropical storm Arthur), causing serious flooding in the south. This is highly unusual for Belize, so everyone was caught off guard. In Belmopan it didn't really affect me, but the bridge that we have to cross in order to get to work was flooded and we had to go the long way around. It took 2 hours to get there on a really bumpy road, and I was holding on to the peanut the entire way. Hopefully the weather will get better, but the satellite images aren't very encouraging. I'm off work today so that I don't have to take peanut on that road again.

My boobs broke a zipper on a blouse yesterday morning. The blouse had always been a bit fitted, but wow it was TIGHT when I tried it on, and when I tried to zip it, the thing popped hehehehe. COOL. I won't complain, because I don't know how long I'll have such excellent boobage. (See pose: right)

My bum is widening faster than my belly. I swear, my peanut is living in my butt cheeks not my uterus. Mam says that a big butt and legs means that I'm having a girl. Can you believe I'll be 6 months in 2 weeks? I'm still waiting for my belly to really pop.

I got a really neat infant support pillow the other day - a "Boppy" as well as a head support for peanut in the stroller or carseat, a fluffy ducky fleece blanky, and some other bits and pieces (as well as some snowman pjs for me - just because!)
