We are blessed that everything continues to go well in pregnancy. Everyday I can feel our baby girl more and more. She is constantly kicking or poking, which I love! The other night I felt her on both sides of my belly! I guess she was kicking on one side and punching on the other. It was precious, and just confirmed how big she's getting! I can't believe that she's already over a pound and a half in weight and about 13.5 inches in length! It seems like just yesterday that she was compared to the size of a sesame seed! How quickly they grow!
Funny story...the other night in Home Depot, a lady was telling me her husband makes belly bands (he's in textiles). She said, "But you look like you're carrying small so you probably won't need one." I was so thankful for this comment. I, of course, feel gigantic!! So her "you're carrying small" made me feel great! But...at work a few days later a woman asked when I was due. I told her September and she said, "I don't know that you're going to make it!" So the high I was feeling with being told I was small was quickly squished by her, "you don't look like you'll make it."
Today, May 24, another parent at school told me I looked adorable, but she didn't know how I would make it to the next school year! Oh well...it's a great thing that our baby is growing and that my belly is getting bigger.
So I'm quickly starting to worry about this summer and the dreaded heat. I already get hot so I can't imagine 90-100 weather. I am really looking forward to seeing how low I can get our house temperature and how high I can get our electric bill!! :)
This weekend we took our little girl for her first beach swim. She also seemed to enjoy the boat ride up and down the Intercoastal Waterway. John and I had a great time cruising around enjoying the sun!
