O baby!!!!

There is some big news going around.....maybe you've heard...we're having a baby!! It's still hard to believe. We found out on Feb 3rd and kept it a secret until we got all the blood work back. It all seems so surreal. This is what we have been waiting for and praying about every single day. I am SO thankful that the Lord makes all things new. We never lost hope but there were days that were really hard to get through. We are so blessed to have such an amazing support group of family and friends. The Lord taught us so much in our time of waiting. We are thankful that we didn't have to wait very long although it seemed like eternity. He taught us how to be content, patient, waiting on Him, trusting in Him, being joyful in everything, being still and listening as He speaks and most of all we learned how to pray. I don't think we have ever prayed as much as we have since we lost our 1st baby in October. I can't even explain the hurt that it created in my heart. We were so desperate for healing and for a miracle. When we finally gave it up to Him and didn't worry about it, it happened! Jesus heard our cry and has blessed us with a teeny tiny baby! The feeling is indescribable. I went in for the first ultrasound this afternoon due to a scary night last night and it was the most amazing thing we have ever experienced. All last night we were praying to see a heartbeat. We went in knowing that it is still early and there is a great chance we wouldn't see it but the Lord is so good and we were able to see our little baby blob and the heartbeat!!!! I laid there looking at our baby with tears running down my face and looked at Chris as he stared at our baby in amazement. Truly a miracle and such a precious gift from God!! We are on cloud 9!! So, the big day is going to be around October 16th! 8 more months and we get to meet our little one!! We could not be more thrilled. Thank you so much to all of you who have been praying for us. Please continue to pray for our baby to grow strong and healthy. We get to see our little blob again in a couple of weeks. Its incredible. I wish you all could see it. So....this is our baby...the size of a sweet pea right now. Soo tiny.. Meet Baby Andrews!!!! Who knew you could be so in love with a blob! We are!! You can see the little head and the little arm buds starting to form! Enjoy!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🀦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
