I've been feeling pretty good. I am almost 7 1/2 months. It really is coming fast. I am starting to get a little nervous and scared for the birth but I'm trying to not think about it. My back and ribs are still hurting but other than that I am doing pretty well. I'm still in my own jeans, with a belly band of course. I don't know how long this will last. We will see. I have to get through six more weeks and then I am going to live in my sweats when I am home. I have a breastfeeding class this upcoming weekend. Very excited for this. I am determined to breastfeed. I have heard horror stories and how painful it is but I really want to be successful for Miss Marlie. She has been moving a lot. That is definitely my favorite part. Last night she kicked me so hard it woke me up and scared me. She is getting pretty strong. Nick can hear her heartbeat also when he puts his head to my belly. If I ever get nervous or haven't felt her move in a while, I always ask Nick to listen to her heartbeat. It helps me to not get scared. Our doctor's appointment is every two weeks now. This Tuesday is my next. I am hoping to be able to get another ultrasound done. I have gained 18 pounds so far and will probably weigh more than Nick soon!
