Regarding the pee, the ultrasound tech told me she has her head right on my bladder. I can tell! LOL. I know it's supposed to get worse before it gets better, argh. Do the two week appointments start after 28 weeks in South Africa also? Seeing baby is so reassuring like you said, also it appears she has my nose not my husband's (lovely on a guy) more prominent schnoz. What kind of Christmas plans do you have? I've never celebrated Christmas in summer, but where I grew up in San Diego, CA it never gets cold. My brothers used to fool me every year by telling me it snowed and I would run to the window. (what an idiot) I am going to take it easy on the holidays this year, I'll probably get a small table top tree made of rosemary and leave most of my decorations in the box. My hubs is pretty grinchy anyway. I know we'll be having big Christmases for baby girl in the future! That's so amazing you've only gained 10 pounds, keep it up! I've been told the less weight you gain the better.
