Can't sleep either

It is 2:30am and Regina's been tossing and turning and rearranging pillows for a good hour now and has finally fallen asleep, but here I am wide awake after all of it. We had another ultrasound today and he's head down and with his back to the left--which is the perfect position. I watched the chambers of his heart open and close and his ribs squeeze in what the doctor called practice breathing.

So, we're at 35 1/2 weeks today. I truly couldn't imagine ever getting here. We have 4 1/2 weeks till our due date (though I know that we could go later than that.

My nausea is finally under control and we've had four days without my medicine (though I'm currently sweating and feeling nauseous).

My current symptoms:
CRAZY active baby. I mostly feel his little butt up by my right rib, but I can occasionally feel his head poking into my cervix (NOT FUN). As I'm typing this he's going nuts and I can't figure out what parts are knocking around - but I'm hoping he's still in head down position.

Heartburn. But mostly when I overeat or east spicy foods.

Not able to sleep - at all. Tossing and turning all night long. Either hunger or the need to pee, and by the morning, my hips hurt. I am dreading sleeping at this point.

Lots of Braxton Hicks Contractions. These aren't painful, but are a tightening of my whole belly and make it really uncomfortable.
