My kingdom for an ultrasound

I can't hack it. After two days straight of not feeling much from Monkey at all, I think I will give in and go to my GP and ask for a referral for a scan. I know what can go wrong at this point, and it's scary - I also know that the bigger the baby gets, the less room there is to move in there. But I've really noticed a distinct lack of kicking and moving around; and I just need to put my mind at ease. Probably won't be able to get one until at least Tuesday, and I will be sure to tell the technician that I definitey don't want to know the baby's sex. I'll tell Mr TC the doctor told me I need one, so he doesn't think his wife is having (yet another) panic attack. I think you're supposed to feel 10 kicks a day or something at this point?

About an hour ago we got back from 2 days down in Sydney for Easter. It's soooo nice to be home, we live 1 and 1/2 hours away from Sydney ... it's so quiet up here compared to the big manic energy of the city. However, I will miss my sisters Foxtel and close proximity to the beach.

I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter holiday. I'm noticing a lot of my comments not appearing lately, it's either blogger or my computer. I'm on Mr TCs computer now - he is so clueless that my blog URL sits in his favourites and he doesn't even notice, heh heh. So I'm off to read everyone (yay!) and hold my own personal commentathon. I love getting comments, so it's only fair I leave them and let people know I am here. I am!

Lastly, I'm holding a competition!! With a prize!! (Don't know what yet, but I'll get something really cool and post a pic of it.) I'l make sure it's light in case I need to post it to one of my American friends :)

To enter, all you have to do is let me know if you think Monkey is a boy or a girl, and what colour hair he/she will have. The closing date is - oh, let's see ..... 13th May!! xox

I reckon that it's always worth the reassurance to just get the scan.

I'd bet it's fine, but it beats chewing your nails to stubs,

Ok, I'm thinking that monkey is... damn, I'm usually good at this, but I am not sure! I'm going with a girl and she will not have red hair.

I will tell you for sure what the sex is, if you answer me this question: do you feel "frisky" with mr tc?

*mwaa**

I think you will have a spunky little girl with fiery red hair. :)

I don't blame you for wanting the reassurance scan. As much as everyone says that you will feel less movement towards the end, I always got nervous too. And hey, who doesn't love an extra peak??

As for my guess, it's a girl. Hair color ... hmmm ... brown.

TC, can't wait to hear that you had a wonderful scan and Monkey is doing well. He/she is probably just playing tricks on you--think of it as an early glimpse at his/her personality!

I waffle back and forth between boy and girl for you. I had the strongest boy feeling for such a long time, but now I don't know. I don't see red hair, though. I am thinking a light brown, maybe auburn color--with hazel eyes. Anyone have hazel eyes in your family?

May 13th will be here before you know it!

Hugs.
