36 Week Appointment

I had another appointment yesterday and so far so good.  My blood pressure was a little high so they put me on the monitors to watch the baby.  He did awesome and moved a whole ton.  Cooper was the same, whenever the monitors were on him he moved tons! Plus, I only had one contraction!  I am still at 2cm and 20% effaced, so thats good.  I really want to go into labor on my own and without Pitocin but I have a feeling that I'm going to hit 38 weeks and my blood pressure is going to shoot up and I'll have to be induced. I guess we will just have to wait and see.  I'm just trying to enjoy the last few weeks of having ONE child and love on him as much as possible.  I still have that guilty feeling that we're going to be taking something away from Coop, but I just keep reminding myself that I am GIVING him a brother, best friend, and buddy.  My next appointment is next Thursday the 31st and we're getting another US along with having to sit on the monitors.  Hopefully my blood pressure will stay down and I won't have to sit on the monitors at all. 

Anyways, here are some pictures of Cooper from that last few days. :)  We had Charlotte and Jacob over to finger paint the other day and this was the only one I could get.  They had a blast. 

I gave him ONE  side of the Oreo (we all know my Oreo obsession has worsened with this pregnancy) and he didn't do too bad, but still made a mess.
