The Macs

still growing

The baby bump pictures are back!
Although it is more than a baby bump now.
Six months--26 weeks to be exact.
I had another appointment today.
My doctor told me that next week I would be in the third trimester.
Three months until we get to meet this little one.

My appointment today was good.
Uneventful, which we are always thankful for.
I am gaining PLENTY of weight--probably too much.
Although my doctor hasn't said anything about that yet,
so I think I will just keep eating...
because pregnant ladies can do that right??
And we got to hear that sweet baby heart beat again.
I love that sound.
I will go in for another sonogram at 28 weeks.
Otherwise, so far so good.
Thank you for your continued prayers for our family and Baby Mac!

You look great-doesn't look like you are gaining to much to me! I am so excited that things are going well for you-we in the computer world are anxious to hear whether its a boy or girl. We are praying for you all daily and never forgetting you little cora and the blessing she has been to so many with so little time on this earth.

I mostly lurk, but please know your Cora has had a profound impact on my life...and your faith has been so encouraging to me as Christian woman.

I pray for your family all the time. Sometimes I am driven to pray for you in the midst of the day...I just feel Him nudging me to lift you. You are so wrapped in prayers from everywhere. We all love you!

I first learned about you from kellyskornerblog when sweet Cora was so sick. God is good and His almighty, sovereign plan is beyond beautiful. I will continue to lift you. You look so wonderful, Jess. Love you from afar!

I've never commented before, but have followed your blog for a while. I am right ahead of you (28 weeks) and wish you the best of luck! And keep eating, I indulge in ice cream everyday. It has calcium, right, that's good for the baby.

You are SO adorable!! Can't wait to see pics of Baby Mac.

I enjoyed all the pictures from Cora's Playground dedication. I'm sure it was one of those times where everyone could sense the presence of God right in that moment.

I'm determined to see Cora's Playground in person one day.

You don't just look beautiful, you are beautiful. Thank you for continuing to share with us.

I cried when I was catching up here. Congratulations on finishing the temporary job before going back to the one you love and do so well. And for a good appointment. And for reaching the next trimester.

Keep on eating, it looks GREAT on you. (And it WILL come off...eventually...I've had three kids and always gained a TON when pregnant.)
