22-23 weeks Pregnancy Update

I'm currently 23 weeks and feeling better than ever! I had a prenatal appointment recently and have gained 4 lbs since last visit a month ago.  I'm weighing in at 126, so I have gained a total of 11 lbs.   And I had another ultrasound, it was amazing seeing my little princess again.  She is weighing in at 1 lb 3 oz and is about the size of a large mango.  She is kicking and twirling all over the place.  Both Alex and Masha have felt her kicks, it's an amazing feeling.
We have been going to the beach almost everyday.  Swimming in the ocean and enjoying the glorious scenery.  Walking along the beach and seeing my loves playing in the water, there is nothing better than that.  I feel so blessed to live close to the water.  There are such great spots around here.  Some of my favorites are Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, and Lido Key.  If you ever want to getaway on vacation, check these out!  With the weather being extremely hot recently, it's the best escape.  I hate being coped up in the house, plus it is great to get fresh air for all of us.  We try to go in the morning or afternoon to avoid the hottest part of the day.
My craving have been watermelon and raspberries. Having a major sweet tooth doesn't help, thank goodness for fruit though!!  One thing I absolutely love is burgers!  We stopped by this amazing restaurant on Anna Maria called Duffy's Tavern.  My hubby's fav place and I fell in love as well.  Their burgers are to die for! I ordered their "World Famous Burger" with all the works.  My hubs had a fresh jalapeno and Havarti cheeseburger.   Ok I am getting hungry just thinking about it, lol!
Check it out if your ever in town!

My hubby found one of my fav rose gold rings! I thought I lost it at the beach.  Isn't that the best feeling!  Thought it was gone forever.

Right after my ultrasound! Super excited to see my lil one again! She was fully awake, heart beat was over 170 beats a minute. Healthy and growing nicely!  Reason I had to come back for second ultrasound was because she was sleeping last time, and they needed to take a few more clear shots of her organs.
