7 Months!

I'm about a week later than my normal monthly pregnancy post, but better late than never.  I've been crazy busy with work, so hopefully now that I'm slowing a bit, I can post a few more things.  I'm also working on Cecily's room--crib skirt and duvet cover for the queen/full bed are done.  Just bed skirt, crib sheet, pillows, curtains and some artwork are left.  I'd love to make her a few outfits and some burp cloths--just hope I can get it all in these next NINE WEEKS!  Eeekk!

Anywho, here's my picture.  Warning:  the Knox pics are of some whale that invaded my body.  Oh and I had my hair cut over the weekend, which I love, but didn't really bother to fix this AM.

To date, my official weight gain with Cecily is only 11 lbs, though I think I've gained about 4 in the last week.  Not sure my exact weight gain with Knox, but it had to be somewhere around 35-40 lbs at this point.  Crazy.  Other current preggo facts:  she's SUPER LOW, as Knox was.  Constant pressure "down there", and head in my pelvic bone, like Knox as well.  Only one noticeable bout of Braxton Hicks, but almost constant round ligament pain.  Lower back hurts when I sit up-right for long periods of time, and I can feel my hips "loosening" for the labor I won't have to go through.

Saw sweet Cecily's face today.  The body attached to that face is already 4 lbs 4 oz, according to her measurements.  Thankful to the C-section, I won't have to worry about how big she might get.  It's just crazy since Knox was only 6 lb 7 oz, being 3 days late!

Anywho, hopefully it won't be almost 5 weeks until my next post!  Maybe I can get her room done before then to share pics!
