Baby Hayden 36 weeks


I was 36 weeks yesterday and this picture was taken today!
My heartburn has increased to the point I am taking medicine every night just to get some sleep. I am also getting to the point where he is taking up every inch there is in my stomach/chest cavity area!! I am one stuffed turkey! (wink!) You know when you laugh so much that your sides get tired ... well that is how I feel throughout the day from holding this belly up!! Gene keeps telling me to take it easy but that isn't easy for a busy lady like me! This past Sunday I was having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, at least more then normal, that I thought I might be in labor! They eventually subsided after taking a long break. Finally, I have good days and bad days with this hip/lower muscle separation thing! There are days where I literally almost can't walk or get out of bed; but the good thing is that I have good days too!
Most importantly, we are super excited about this impending birth! I am ready to see his face and hold this little guy! We have been rearranging Dax's room so that baby Hayden can join him! (pictures coming soon) Hayden will be in the bassinet in our room until he is sleeping through the night! I even got Dax's old clothes out and put them in the baby dresser!!
