When you're expecting, you'll hear this comparison. At seven months into your pregnancy your baby is, statistically, the size of a football.

Well, we've hit that mark. Seven months along. (Yep, the suit coats are getting snug - and some of the camera shots are even snugger.) So I pulled a football out of our basement - just to get a feel for the size of our unborn daughter. It's mind-boggling how fast they grow and develop. Just a few months ago she was, again statistically speaking, the size of an olive.

My husband, Damien, and I are experiencing what other first-time parents have already shared - sheer giddiness as that magical "birthday" nears.

Our baby girl is due on Election Day. Presidential elections are always memorable, but for this first-time Mom, this one is shaping up to be extraordinary.
