Still pregnant...and nursery pictures!

Yes, it's true. I'm still pregnant! I thought for sure I'd have a baby by now-mainly because Lily was so early! If this baby was Lily-she'd be over a week old! Crazy! The baby update is that if I don't go into labor on my own I go in for another ultrasound on Nov. 9th-if it shows that this baby isn't huge (which I'm pretty sure he'll be!) then I'm already scheduled to be induced on Nov. 10th. If the ultrasound shows he's big-than I'll most likely have a c-section as my doctor doesn't think I'll be able to deliver over an 8 lb. baby. So, that's the update. I'm still hoping I go into labor on my own though! God knows-and I just need to rest in His peace knowing His plans are perfect! I'm trying to figure out ways to get my body to start to go into labor though-any suggestions would be great! :) Other than that, I can happily say my family is completely healthy-praise God! Really, the timing of that whole swine flu thing was perfect since I never went into labor or even had a newborn! And I got to have a fun sister weekend and take a break from being a mom! It was a restful weekend!
We finally finished the baby's room! And I love it! It was so fun to have a boy theme this time too! Here's some pictures of his room:

The view standing in the doorway


My favorite part is his name on the wall!



Isn't it great?! Now all I need is the baby to sleep in that room and make it complete! Here's a shot of my GINORMOUS belly at 37 weeks (we forgot to take it at 36 weeks since that was the week of the whole swine flu fiasco)


Yup, I'm big alright!
And one more picture of my sweet Lily when she was sick:

This was taken with my brother's cell phone-so it isn't the greatest quality but it gives you an idea! My parents took her to Urgent Care last Friday since I was banned from being near her in case she did have the swine flu. They (urgent care) made her wear this mask! Poor thing. It's hard to tell, but she's actually smiling in the picture-this girl is trained so well that whenever she sees a camera she gives us her fake smile! Poor thing. But she's all better now!

I love the nursery - the colors the name, everything!!! I always love to see pics of cute baby rooms. I just realized that I've never had a nursery for any of my 4 kids. We lived in a 1 bedroom apt until Macie was 2 so she was with us and then after that they've always had to share.
Good luck with the baby!! Was Lily a c-section?

Great job Amanda! The nursery is adorable! By the way, I would LOVE it if I could share by birthday with Jameson on the 10th, but I do hope you have him sooner just for your own sanity! Im going to continue to root for the 10th though sorry...

Super cute Amanda! Way to go on the nursery! And your belly is huge but you are so tiny! I love it. And I have loved seeing you pregnant because I never got to when you were pregnant with Lily! Can't wait to see sweet baby boy!
