another glimpse

Yesterday was our check up ultrasound. I've had a couple issues with this pregnancy so my doctor is keeping a close eye on me. Fortunately because of all my issues it means I get a couple extra looks at our baby. (not going to complain) We went in and my nerves were totally calmed. I knew in my heart that everything was going to be ok. It is the coolest thing being able to lay in a room and watch your baby on a monitor. I held my breath at the first glance. I saw the baby but no heartbeat. I was amazed at the difference in 12 days. Last time we saw Baby Andrews "he" was a blob and you could hardly make out the head. This time it was very easy to see the head, little arms and two little leg buds starting to form. We got a closer look and there was the little heart beating right on track. 163 beats per minute to be exact. Just perfect. We were so relieved. The ultrasound tech asked if we wanted to hear it.."ya!!!" She turned on the sound and it released a flow of tears. It was incredible to hear. I don't even know how to describe it, all I could think of was how hard this baby is working to grow. Everything looks great and we couldn't be more thrilled. It made this "all day sickness" worth it already. Speaking of "morning" sickness, my obsession with waffles seems to be over. I now can't get enough of raisin bagels. I had to make a quick stop at trader joes today to stock up. Terrible, but hey...its the only thing I can eat! Things are good, we couldn't be any happier. Every day the Lord blesses us in a new way. We are overwhelmed with the love, support and sweet gifts from our family and friends already. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It means more than you know.
So here are the latest pictures of our baby....meet our little gummy bear...

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! 🙌🏼
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. 😂😂😂
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…
