35 weeks and feelin’ fine

Mom says that this week I am 35 weeks old, and that all the growth I’m experiencing is preparing me for my arrival.

At mom’s appointment this week, the doctor said that I am already a good-sized boy. Mom said that I am supposed to be about five and a half pounds, but doctor thinks that I am a bit bigger than that. He says that since I’m developing and growing so well that I really could make my appearance anytime now! I know that mom and dad are getting a bit scared and worried about my arrival, but I’m getting pretty excited!

Mom also found out that I’m now upside down, which means that my feet are up near mom’s ribs. I’ve noticed that when I kick and move, that I seem to be hurting mom a little bit more. I don’t want to hurt her, but sometimes I need to stretch a little bit–or sometimes I just want to dance! Mom really likes to listen to music, and she even dances around the house (but always when dad’s not looking). When she does this, I can’t help but join in too…it’s so much fun. I can’t wait for us to dance together when I’m on the outside.
