My doctor also checked to see if she had grown according to the outside, how she measures my uterus over my clothes with a measuring tape while I'm laying down. She did say that I was measuring at 28 inches today, compared to about 26 inches last Monday when she sent me to the hospital. Tomorrow I go back to the hospital for a more advanced ultrasound with dopplers, which includes checking the blood flow through the umbilical cord. So they will let me know if I can go back to work if Emma is growing well enough, or if May 11th will become her birthday!! I'm prepared either way. My doctor commented on how calm I seemed about everything.
Bravo! I was glad he picked that place because I was wanting Italian. We made a reservation for 7:30 before our nap and made it just in time considering we had slept past the alarm. Apparently we didn't even need a reservation for a Saturday night and got seated right away. The food was really good and we splurged a lot with appetizers (crispy ravioli) before our meal, dessert (chocolate cake with ice cream), and Michael got a cappuccino.
I don't blog very often about our anniversary, and I'm not sure why. I guess around this time each year is when I just don't feel like blogging much, so below are two pictures from last year. I didn't post anything about our 4th anniversary either and since I don't even have a picture on Instagram from that time, I don't remember where we went out to dinner or how we celebrated. It would have been in Orlando though.. Actually I'm thinking maybe we went to YardHouse and I wore an orange dress..? Found it on Michael's account! We had our second anniversary in North Hollywood (when I saw Ashley Tisdale at Malbec!) and our third in Birmingham.
Slate and the waitress said she liked my Shrimp necklace. I like to try a new restaurant when we go out to eat for our anniversary to make it extra fancy and special. I remember liking what I ordered mostly, but Michael didn't care for the food so we haven't gone back there since then. I am also proud to say that although Michael is not happy with his weight right now, I think he looks even more handsome this year than he did last year! (As a note to remember: Michael started losing weight by eating healthier in November and going for walks, jogs, and bike rides with his friend Jenn. He ate fruits such as apples, pears, and plums, with yogurt, salads, and grilled chicken with rice and veggies. He was 195 by the second week of December, and 185 towards the end of January! That had been his lowest weight since maybe our wedding? It stayed between 185 and 190 for the next three months. He was 220 in these pictures from last year.)
