Hayden update!

He's doing good...but sitting cozy inside with no signs of exiting anytime soon. I would be happy for him to come soon, but I know he needs to stay as long as possible. So, I've accepted the fact that I have 4 weeks left. I am trying not to complain as much and enjoy the last few weeks.

His head is down low, sitting nicely on my bladder, as I have suspected. I had my strep B test today, which doesn't mean much unless my water breaks, which I doubt. If I test positive, they won't treat me for it unless my water breaks, because otherwise, the baby won't have a chance to get it I guess...with the C-section and all. I didn't have it with J...so I'm not really worried about it.

I am 35 weeks this week and measuring ahead still. The doctor said I actually LOST FOUR POUNDS since my last visit, 2 weeks ago. I told her that wasn't possible, that I was SURE I had gained at least 10. But, she said that was the truth.

My weight gain, or lack thereof has been the most mind boggling thing to me in this pregnancy. While I'm thrilled, it is just so weird. I look pregnant, like huge big sticking out belly pregnant, and yet, no noteable weight gain. With this minus four, I'm at a total of only FOUR pounds gained in this pregnancy.

And it's not like I've been dieting or "eating better" even. I'm a girl who eats. Pretty much what I want. Sad, I know, but I like food. It makes me really curious to see what my weight will be after he is born and what it will do after he is born. Maybe he has boosted my metabolism and I'll be one of those *skinny* people without trying ;-) Just kidding.

So, I mentioned that my bunco girls went in and got me the cutest stuff for Hayden...I am so excited to show you. My friend Marcy made this ADORABLE diaper cake to house all the cute stuff in. I have never seen anything so cute and so amazing in all my life.

It's seriously packed with goodies for Hayden....Check it out!! You're going to love it!!! I took a million pictures a million different ways, hoping you can tell how PRECIOUS it is!! They also got me the cute blanket that's in some of these pictures!


















Seriously, I may never take it apart!!!

That gift is precious! I can't wait to see little Hayden-even just via this blog. I just love keeping up with Jordan on here. And maybe you will get skinny running after 2 little ones. :)

Too cute! I'm glad you're feeling pretty well- hang in there, these last few weeks will go by fast.

The diaper cake is perfect! I love Bunco, but I've only played a couple of times. You're so blessed with your weight gain--I'm only 16weeks and I've already gained more than you! :)

That is undeniably CUTE! But, you have to at least let Hayden wear the Robeez... :-)

That is the coolest diaper cake I have ever seen! It is so beautiful.

With my last baby I always measured ahead and oddly enough didn't gain very much weight at all. But I looked way bigger than I did with my first. He did come almost 2 weeks early though, by C-section.

Good luck!
