I’ve yet to officially announce on my blog that I’m seven months pregnant (yeah sorry about that!) and I’m doing great in case you were wondering. I know, I’m as shocked as you are if you didn’t know it already! I still don’t even really feel pregnant with the exception of all the kicking going on inside of me and the fact that I have to pee all the time.
