It's so neat to see him coming out of his shell. He was such a shy little guy and he's begun to open up so much around other and really have fun. We took him to Chucky Cheese and the Indoor Park for his actual birthday and to see him just go off and play with other kids is so neat. He does ask us every day now to go to Chucky Cheese! I guess he had fun!
Zane is so cute when talking about the baby. He still calls him Cookie Monster, but he said he will share is beloved monkey pillow with him and he also told me he loves baby brother. He also said he wants him to come today, he doesn't want to wait. I don't know that he'll feel that way once we get home, but let's hope so!
I also had my 37 week doctor appointment today. Everything sounds good and my doctor says he can come anytime. She said he's already larger than Zane was when he was born, which was 6 lbs. 4 oz. She said if he makes it to June 7th (the day of my C-section, he'll be well over 8 lbs.) I have not dilated or effaced anymore than 3 weeks ago when I had some pre-term labor symptoms. I guess the "bed rest" has helped. Brian did tell the doctor that I have not complied with her bed rest, but I can certainly say I've toned it down a lot! I can't believe he tried to get me in trouble! I am now free to do anything without limitations, however it's getting pretty tough. I told my doctor he must be really low as he feels like he is about to fall out, and she said that's pretty normal. Not a great feeling! I'm sure all of you mom's know what I'm talking about.
According to my baby site, baby is the size of a watermelon-yep! He likely measures around 18.9 to 20.9 inches and is gaining about 1/2 lb. a week. I have not been sleeping at all as I am very uncomfortable, but I know the end is near. It just makes for a rough day when my 3 year old won't let me nap. This will be interesting when baby comes!
Again, if anyone is interested in visiting when baby comes, we will be in Edina at Fairview-Southdale Hospital. Address: 6401 France Avenue South Edina, MN 55435 and you can call my cell if you'd like: 952-820-5299.
