Because Black is Slimming

And, right now, I'll take whatever help I can get.
So, here I am at a whopping 7 months pregnant. I am still feeling good, despite what my husband may say upon hearing me grunt and groan everytime I try to get out of the car, get up from the couch, roll over, get out of bed (which happens at least 4 times each night), or bend over to pick anything up off the floor. I am happy to groan away because I have not been plagued with the heartburn or Braxton Hicks contractions or stretch marks. Do you hear that? That's me knocking on the biggest piece of wood I can find!

Baby Girl is weighing in at a little over 3 pounds and is about 16 inches long. She is still moving around quite a bit, so there must be some wiggle room in there. It's funny at night when I am laying up against David because he can feel her kicking and moving. Maybe it's as hard for her to get comfortable as it is for me.

The room renovation is pretty much complete. We are just waiting on the shelves to be installed. Our contractor is also going to build some storage units for us because that is the biggest thing we are lacking in there...well, besides a baby. We put the furniture together last night and set the room up as much as possible. This girl is going to be so lucky to have such a big play area!

Enjoy the pictures...I'm going to have to start practicing my poses because we are having our belly shots done next weekend. Any tips on how to make my face look slim and my belly round?

You look beautiful Amanda! I can't wait to meet that baby girl of yours and I can't wait to see those belly shots (if you're planning on sharing). :)

It was so nice to see you. The nursery is looking great. You look beautiful! Your face does not look round in the least. I am sure you belly shots will be great.
