Counting down...

We are 100% counting it down until Miss Hadley arrives. I am almost 37 weeks and extremely tired. We know that Miss Hadley is about 6 pounds and looks wonderful. We have even seen hair in her ultrasound pictures!! So that makes us really excited. We are really ready to meet this little sweetie. April 8th, whether she is ready or not she will be FINALLY making an appearance.

On my health note, I am not allowed to work anymore. Which is a bummer but working and the stress of working was starting to make me sick. I was swelling REALLY bad and that was causing my blood pressure to be higher than we wanted. At this point, I know that it is whats best for Hadley and its two extra weeks off. So we will make it work!!

Everything is done, bags are packed, car seat bases installed, and all we are waiting for is BABY!!!

Baby Update

We are 31 weeks along! Things are going wonderful!! Hadley is growing and extremely active!! She kicks her mommy in the ribs and bladder!!! We just had an ultrasound Monday and we go back next Monday for another. We have weekly ultrasounds because of my blood clot disorder. So we see lots of Hadley. We saw that she has hair on the ultrasound. She also was playing with her feet in the ultrasound. Chad and I really enjoy going to see her every week, even though I am concerned high risk!! At this point, by the end of the day my feet are swollen and hurt. But that is completely normal!! Hadley is kicking right now... So she says HELLO!!

This weekend is my first baby shower!!! Yippee!! It is amazing to see how BLESSED we are!! Chad and I are so lucky to have such wonderful family and friends!! I will post pictures after this weekend!!

Here is Chad and I on Christmas... Its the only belly shot! I am 24 weeks in this picture!

We are working on her nursery and once I have some progress made I will post pictures!! I have gotten tired of fighting my computer!! Will add later!!!

Back to work I go tomorrow!! I love my job and all, but Christmas has been a blessing! I have finally been able to allow my back pains to go away! (Which I see a Physical Therapist on Friday about!!) Chad and I have gotten some much needed time at home. With his coaching schedule its hard to have anytime together, expect for sleeping which I do most of the time he is home (Thanks Hadley!!!) But I have to go back to work and its only until April (as long as I don't go on bedrest which is a possiblity with my blood clotting condition!!) Talk to you soon!! Do the snow dance for ME!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas!! Chad got me Pandora charms (actually I got several from lots of people!!) and a new camera! Which I have to figure out how to put pictures onto my new Netbook now!! Which was a great gift from my parents to add pictures of Hadley!!! Once I figure it all out I will add pictures!!

On the baby update..... We go to the doctor tomorrow for my sugar check and my four week appointment. Right now things are good expect for some lower back pain. We ordered our changer table and we are getting our crib and rocker tomorrow. Our crib and rocker is coming to tomorrow from my uncle. Yippee!! We are getting a white crib and a changer table. We are painting the chest in the guest bedroom white. We have to paint the bedroom! I will post pictures as soon as we have some progress!!

I am so excited to announce... That Chad and I are expecting a BABY!!! We are due April 17th!! We heard the heartbeat on Monday and could not be more excited!! It is so wonderful to hear your baby. I sometime forget that we are truly having a baby! It does not seem real to me, until I wake up in the morning having to go potty right then!! LOL!! We hopefully will find out what we are having on November 2nd.

The only complication so far is my blood clots. I give myself a shot of blood thinner every night! It really is not as bad as I feared!! So I cant complain!
