Baby G, No. 2 is a ….

B&W
a few things on the brain …. 

  1. FUN FACT: Tegan has been our girl name since June 2013.  The name came to us on a road trip to Key West and has stuck with us since. Tegan means “darling” “loved one” Shay means “a gift”.We weren’t going to announce the name until she was born but well, I wanted to call dibs on this one!
  2. We weren’t supposed to find out until next week what baby number two was going to be.  The way it happened was perfect… my Husband and I are always early to appointments (one thing that made me fall for Mr. Gallinger 8 years ago) yesterday, the nurse thanked me for always being early/on time.  Today, that paid off!  We did a little sweet talking our amazing doctor, she snuck us in an exam room and told us the precious heartbeat we have been hearing is our baby girl! I cried and smiled and haven’t stopped since!  I threw my arms around my husband and thanked him for giving me the best of both!We are so blessed. So excited. On top of the World!
  3. Having a girl did scare me at first but then a few months into the pregnancy that was all I wanted to hear … “your having a girl”!

    One concern … some people truly do not know the difference between dressing a baby girl cute and that fine line between making them look like a Pomeranian in a stroller.  You all know exactly what I mean!  There is such think as too many ruffles & bows!  If you have to second guess it, don’t buy it or be sure to bring a receipt haha.

    Our baby girl will most likely be the ruler of the house but she will not grow up thinking she is a princess.  Lord knows we don’t need a self entitled brat haha.  Converse and tutus are perfectly fine with me!

  4. Nursery … I cannot wait to decorate her room! I have secretly been stashing things for the past few months – I think depo down inside I just knew!
  5. I wish people were always this kind and loving.  Pregnancy is once again when I feel the best.  When I feel the prettiest and most confident.  I can’t explain it but there is something inside me that changes. I love the way people are to me and how I am to myself….

17/40: Baby Bump Files

:: 17 weeks ::

Baby is the size of a pomegranate which is perfect … we just picked a few from our tree growing in our yard! The tree was planted when I was 31 weeks pregnant with my son so you could say it is special to us.
img_7234I am feeling great overall minus the headaches I seem to get more than I’d like. I’ve been getting through them with the loving massages from my husband and the use of essential oils.  This past weekend he surprised me with a prenatal massage at a spa, it was so wonderful and very appreciated.

Today Grayson explained to me that he has the baby, not Mama (see video) it is so sweet. img_7227As you can hear, he still “likes the sister kind“.  I cannot wait to find out, only a couple weeks to go! [wpvideo zYjV8i4n]

LIFE 5 – this is an amazing gentle probiotic that contains 10 billion active cultures and improves colonization up to 10 times

GENTLE BABY – oh, let me count the ways. I am so in love with this oil right now. I use in nightly either on my growing belly or in the diffuser for a great night sleep!

CEDARWOOD – my son gets cedarwood with tangerine in the diffuser nightly and he sleeps so soundly I have to wake him every morning for daycare! I also add it to our DIY body butter fro healthy glowing skin!

THIEVES FOAMING HAND SOAP – because germs are gross and by using Thieves hand soap I am supporting our immune system while washing our hands. Win win!

MINDWISE – brain support is important even more so when you are pregnant. Pregnancy Brain is really a thing! I drink 1TBS every morning in my NingXia Red. If you are unfamiliar with exotic sacha inchi nut oil, look it up! This is one of the many powerful ingredients in Mindwise!

PEACE & CALMING, II – I have a toddler and I am pregnant, enough said! Seriously though … I have loved P&C, II right off the bat! It is so calming, so relaxing and smells amazing. My son wears it daily as his ‘cologne’, we also like to diffuse it alone and also with Lavender!

NORTHERN LIGHTS BLACK SPRUCE – my Husband loves this one. It is a rich, woodsy, and invigorating scent. I love diffusing this at night while we sleep and also on rainy days. There is something very comforting about this oil that makes us always have it on hand.
