Our son will be 3 in Aug. He is a spoiled boy and a big cuddler! He loves to be picked up and held and carried around. DH and I both love it! The last few weeks it is getting much harder for me to pick him up I have had awful round ligament pain and my belly is still sore from the near car accident the other day. I tried to explain it to him, but of course he does not completely understand, I don't expect him too. What he does do is defy me and make me pick him up and carry him to take a bath, get in the car etc. :mad: I think he is realizing that there really is a baby coming and things are going to change. I told him Mommy's belly hurts...and he says But my belly does not hurt. ANy advice on handling this? He weighs about 33-35 lbs so I know he is probably too heavy to pick up I am going to ask my doc about it on Friday at my appt after my u/s.
