Incredible to think it’s already November 1st!
We now have 9 weeks to go for Baby G’s arrival. Which I guess now that we’ve known since last week’s reveal party of the gender, Baby G can stand for both Gallegos and Girl.
According to all things published on pregnancies, baby is the size of a 🥥 coconut!
Lotsa cooking is still goin on with our pea in the pod. Mainly brain stuff and fat storing. The senses are pretty much down as all the other vital organs and body parts. Pretty soon, the baby’s own immune system will be able to also fend for itself.
Space in there is getting tight so the movements are going to start to not be as punchful.
With a weight of 3lbs and 12 ounces and a little over 16 inches long, baby is close to its birth size overall even though another 3-5 lbs are expected to be added!
In some cases the baby can actually start sucking it’s thumb now.
Because the baby is now in position and growing bigger, Mommy is gonna start feeling shortness of breath since baby is pushing up against her lungs.
Speaking of shortness of breath, we’ve been overdosing in Victoria’s Halloween loot. She has candy for months and we are helping her make quite a dent.
We are catching up every night on season 4 of This Is Us. What an amazing series. Why it didn’t make a sweep at the Emmies is beyond me.
Today we went to grab some more gear for V of course at the Disney Store. On the way back, she had a pretty amazing conversation with me and quite engaging. She wanted a brown couch and she asked if I agreed with her choice of color. What 5 year old asks that? I was proud of my little pumpkin! She also bragged that she wanted to do puzzles because “she was actually pretty good at them!” WHAT!!!!!
We were also reminiscing how it was exactly a week ago tonight we were in full swing hosting our Gender Reveal party. How time flies by....sigh.
Tonight I also shared on social media the following:
This is what 31 weeks looks like. SEVEN months of glow 🐷♑️🐷. To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited.
Soul and spirit are stretched - along with body - making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.
The miracle of life in action.
A grand adventure is about to begin...
