In addition to celebrating the Giants win in Super Bowl XLVI this past weekend (which baby Chili enjoyed in utero!), it was also a time to celebrate the 24 week mark!
According to BabyCenter.com, my little nugget is growing steadily and is just over a pound, measuring almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn!). Seems a little lean, but according to the weekly tracker, his body is filling out proportionally and he’ll soon start to plump up :). It’s also a time for continued brain growth, taste bud development as well as lung and respiratory tree development — guess I better pack more veggies and fruits in my diet again! Don’t want Chili to be craving sour patch kids and french fries the moment he emerges!
Overall, I’ve been feeling pretty good physically, and just glad we are getting through the peak of winter (I don’t want to take the chance of driving in any inclement weather this time around!).
It’s amazing to think that our little bundle of joy will be here before we know it…about 3 months to go…and I just can’t wait to meet him :).
