We’ll really almost 17 weeks now but I’m late so… Things are going just great. We are moving right along and I’m anxiously awaiting one of my favorite things feeling this sweet baby girl moving. It will start out as tiny little fluttering then soon it will be big kicks, jabs and rolls. She can hear now the app says! Hopefully she doesn’t mind out loud house with kids and dogs.
We are at the beach this week visiting Jen and KC and the Boys! Let me say Florida in December is AMAZING! It’s 80 plus degrees here still. But the perk is no crowds. We are staying in a condo this time on siesta beach the sand is gorgeous and the water is so nice too. The ocean is a bit chilly to actually get in for me but the kids don’t mind and there is a heated pool. I will enjoy that and just laying on the beach enjoying the sounds of the waves. Well scratch that Kailynn just got me in the cold ocean 😂. It wasn’t awful but it wasn’t warm.
Good news I still haven’t gained any weight! Woohoo not that I diet, exercise or anything really but it’s nice to know. I’ve never really gained much weight with any of my pregnancies. I’m sure that also why I enjoy being pregnant. I usually lose weight after baby is born and then fluff back up every time. 😂 My low iron is back and so is my ice cravings. I need to find softer ice to chew with my braces. I’m so worried I’m going to start snapping brackets but I also just can’t stop eating the ice! It’s a NEED. I just crunch it all day and night. Poor Ricky has woken up to me eating it in the middle of the night! I don’t feel to bad for him though because honestly I’m always awake from his awful snoring so I really get the short end of the stick.
I can’t believe how big the boys are. I seriously love so much that I get to see and spend time with the families I was lucky enough to help. This is the biggest gift and perk for me. I have best friends that I hope to know and love forever. Greenleaf and Oliver are the cutest and sweetest boys. Greenleaf loves playing with Kailynn and Everett. Oliver let me hold him! I was worried he wouldn’t.
As I lay on the beach typing all this I can’t help but wish we lived here. Or at least had a condo we could come to like this multiple times a year! That’s what I need more beach in my life. Now I’ll post some pics and put what baby Mac is up to this week.
If the reality of your pregnancy doesn’t quite feel real yet, it may after your little one starts kick, kick, kicking away. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel Baby Mac kick for another few weeks, so if you don’t feel that “quickening” just yet, don’t worry. Those kicks will be coming soon enough! At just over 7 inches long, and weighing 5.2 ounces, your little kicking bundle of joy just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The ears that have been moving to the sides of Baby Mac’s head over the last few weeks are now developed enough that your little one can probably hear all the sounds that you do, which is yet another way that they are preparing for life after their big arrival. And even though your baby’s eyelids are still sealed, they have also matured and developed enough that can detect light through your belly.
Ricky acts like he doesn’t like babies. 😂
