quick update...

This past week has been anything less than insane!!! So first of all the kidney/doctor update....
My doctor said that my ultrasound showed that Hayden is still breech and not only is he breech his little feet are pinching off the tube that goes from my right kidney to my bladder. So that makes the tube and my kidney back up with fluid and become inflamed and dilated. That alone he said would cause the pain. But I also passed a big fatty kidney stone, and I have a mild kidney infection...... so now I am to stay as relaxed and comfortable, still drink a ton of water, take pain relievers when necessary, and finish the prescription for the infection. I am doing WAY better, the pain is tolerable, and I try not to take anything for it as much as I can stand. They won't do anything about Hayden's position, if he moves he moves. He still has time and a little room to turn the right way. But even if he doesn't he has made a nice little kink in the tube and it won't go away until after I have him. 9 more weeks! Thanks to everyone for your support and your nice comments. :) I go back in 2 weeks for a checkup. He will be here so soon! It’s so crazy.

My brother is in surgery right at this moment to get his collar bone put back the right way... I'm glad we found a really good doctor/surgeon to help him. He will have a plate on top of the bone with a few screws. It’s an in and out surgery and he should be good as new by the end of the week and can play physical sports in about a month and a half.

Cory and I had a nice Halloween; it was kind of like any other day. I really wasn't up for anything more than passing out candy, I was so exhausted. But it was fun seeing all the cute little kids in their costumes. It makes me excited for when Hayden will be able to go trick or treating.

Sunday was my mom's birthday. We had a big dinner with my Grandma, she opened her presents and we had a really yummy cake. I love her so much, she is the best mom. She is such a strong woman and I really look up to her. She is my best friend and I hope she had a great birthday. I love you mom!

I am so excited for Novemeber! It means I'm that much closer to my due date and its Thanksgiving time! I am so thankful that Hayden is ok and is healthy and happy. I'm so thankful that I have the opportunity to be a mommy! It's really scary sometimes to think about that I am gonna be a mommy. I've always wanted to be a mommy and now I am! I love my little guy so much and I can't wait to meet him in person. I'm grateful for my family and all the support and love that they give to me. I have the sweetest, and patient husband. I love him so much and I'm glad I can be with him forever.

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! I can't wait to see pictures of everyones cute kiddos and Halloween festivities :) Count your blessings this month!

Wow, what a stressful week! I've heard that passing a kidney stone is worse than child birth...you'll have to let me know! LOL. I am so excited for you! It seems like just yesterday you were announcing you were pregnant, it's gone by so fast! (Not for you, of course)

Hey Megan! Hope you don't mind my poppin' over to your blog! Poor girl with the kidney stone issues :( My husband has had quite a few the last few years and they are no fun! You're such a trooper! Congrats to you both on the little one... How exciting!

How crazy! Hang in there. I'm so sorry you are in so much pain. I can't imagine what kidney stones are like. Too bad they can't give you an epidural for those! After your little guy is here you will look back and say he is so worth it!

Oh my gosh I am so sorry about the kidney stone! I have heard that is so painfull. Childbirth should feel like a breeze now :) That sucks about your brother, my brother told me about it. I am so excited for their season to start! I hope Travis heals fast!
