Belly pop!

Okay, so on Sunday I still hardly looked pregnant. On Monday, as you can see by the picture taken that night, I popped! It is so crazy how fast it happens! I can feel my belly expand and become more of a prominent prego belly as she is growing. I have only gained 12 pounds and am about 23 weeks along so I think I'm doing pretty good so far! :) I am hoping to meet with Audra, my friend and Doula, sometime within the next week or two for us to start practicing for Faiths natural birth arrival. We will be working on Accupressure points as well as laboring positions and techniques. She'll prepare Mike for his role and how he can assist me. I truly desire to have no medical intervention during her arrival, other than Rachel delivering her of course! Please be in prayer with me over this. It is truly the strongest desire of my heart and can't imagine it being any other way. Though we will prepare for different scenarios of course.

It is getting really exciting!!! I have finished painting her room. As you can see in the picture it's light pink on top and dark brown on the bottom. The paint could not have turned out more perfect. At the end of this month I will put the border up, and hopefully will receive the hardware for the crib by the end of February. Right now I am at work filling out my Short term disability leave paperwork so that everything is in order when Faith arrives. I am getting pretty anxious. Only 4 months to go! :)

I am also researching some things that I can do from home to bring in some money without having to go into work somewhere. So, if any of you out there reading this blog know of a great at home job let me know. No sales things though please. I've done Party Lite and Mary Kay and really just don't care to go down that avenue again! :) More along the administrative or Marketing line I guess.

Hope everyone is having a great year so far!
