Road Trip and a Giveaway - Pregnancy Style

Right now I am not in Vermont.  I am in my home away from home, where my family tree is firmly rooted some 10 generations or more deep (I'm not over exaggerating either).  I've packed everything up and driven myself to the land of wide open spaces, farms, and my parent's internet-less homestead.  Hence, I am writing this post before I leave and posting it in the future.


But, here's the giveaway part...  
because I never go away somewhere fun without doing a giveaway!

I cannot tell you how the eight hour (hopefully not longer) anticipated uncomfortable drive down by myself and my baby squished bladder was. 

So, any guesses on how many times en route to Maryland I had to stop and pee? 

Out of those who correctly guess how many times I had to stop and pee on my 500 mile drive down I will randomly select one winner to receive a souvenir from Caroline County Maryland.  I'll try and pick out something interesting, promise!  I will announce the winner when I return, Monday night or early Tuesday morning depending on how tired and road weary I am. 

Until then I plan on doing the following...
  • Swim and be a beached whale in my parent's in ground pool.
  • Take photos
  • Walk the fields with my dad like we always do
  • See lots of old friends and family
  • Attend a baby shower... Mine! (which isn't a surprise since I have to plan the trip down.)
  • Spend a day "being cultured" in DC with my best friend from high school who forever insists I am too rural for her tastes.   
  • Enjoy. not. working. constantly. 

Here's to a fabulous weekend.  I can't wait to see what your guesses are on my pee breaks.  I'll take photos of my stops for posterity... if I remember... pregnancy is really hindering my short term memory and concentration!

    Four...I'll go with every two hours.

    Seven times.....have a wonderful trip!!

    I am going to say three. Sitting in the car is not quite as hard on you bladder as walking. Walking is torture. :-)

    Connie said...

    Hmmmm....I'll go with 5 times. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Nine. There is an EMT that I work with ( a boy) that stops at a minimum of every 90 miles to go, and I figure you may be stopping just a little more frequently than him. But I really have no idea. Have a fab trip!

    I'll have to go with 8, since the others have taken the other numbers around it. I drove/road 600 miles at 6 months pregnant and that was no trip to WDW at all. Enjoy the pool!

    You had to stop 9 times.

    miloandme said...

    I think 5 times.

    Mandy said...

    My guess will be 10 times but then I have never had a baby before but I have a week bladder and figure if I ever have a baby then I will just live in the bathroom. LOL!

    First of all, I hope you have a wonderful time visiting your family, Jen! Second, I hope the shower goes off without a hitch and you get plenty of stuff you can use. How will you get it all home? You must have a big SUV!

    Third, I'm going with 5 times on the pee breaks. Have fun!!!

    Oh, and my parents don't have any internet either. What's up with that????

    Mike Dwyer said...

    I am guessing 4 times! :)

    Having given birth seven times myself I'm very sympathetic with you and your pee breaks. But I'm not going to guess. Enjoy your visit with your parents and have fun at your shower.
