17 week BUMPDATE! 💙👶🏼
Almost half way there!!! I can't even believe how FAST this is starting to go now! A few days behind (again!) but I blame it on the Florida winter that is freezing me beyond belief! ❄️⛄️ BUT, it's Friday, I'm in jeans and ready to tackle middle school. 😆There's more of a bump this week - no hiding it now! But my belly button ... it's popping already and definitely something scary. 😱 Baby is a relaxed little guy! Only giving me a few tiny thumps a day. Must be pretty content. 😍
Baby Ruth's senses are developing fast, and the brain is beginning to coordinate with the other developing systems, like the way it’s starting to regulate the heartbeat, instead of letting it beat willy-nilly like it has been. His umbilical cord is also growing stronger, and getting better at delivering nutrients. Basically, our little guy is having a grand time, at this point. The little body is now 5 inches long, about the size of a pomegranate, and the soft cartilage that makes up the skeleton is ossifying, or turning into bone.
Other than cold, this week is going great! Sleeping well and headaches have been very few and far between this week 🙌🏻 Speaking of sleep, the dreams 😳 So vivid, so real, so crazy! The other day I had a dream that my midwife couldn't be at my appointment because she was getting her weekly pedicure and knew I would understand 😂
CRAVINGS: Appetite is coming back in full force! Finally! Omg gimme all the cheese and crackers. 😆 Working on that and focusing on low carb as much as possible. Not always possible at this point, but going day by day. I love the #keto diet but also know my body and baby come first. We do what we can to get through it. 😉 Thankful for my guy at @dappowered for loving me every step of the way. 😘
