I see the light!!

Yes! There is a light at the end of this tunnel! The past two days have been a lot better over here. We had some problems with getting my heartburn prescription approved so we moved onto a different one...and so far it has been helping! I am so very thankful for this relief. This afternoon I went in for the growth ultrasound that my doctor ordered. It was so great seeing Kate again, although she is so big and so squished in there that it was hard to tell what was what. Her head is so far down that we couldn't even get a good measurement on it. We were able to tell that her hands were once again up by her face (as always). Another thing that was a huge relief to me and an answer to prayer was her umbilical cord. I have a huge fear of it being wrapped around her neck. I've heard so many freaky cord accidents not to mention I had a prolapse cord and my sister had the cord around her neck 3 times! Anyways, praise the Lord it is not by her neck, its floating by her tummy and arms! Whew! The results were sent up to my doctor and 3 hours later I got a call saying that Kate is measuring right on track!! She is not measuring behind like my belly is telling us. As of today she is around 6 pounds 11 ounces. We are so thankful for that wonderful news! Onto even more exciting things....she will be here next Wednesday!!!! Yes, in our arms! I have been scheduled to be induced then. It hasn't really hit me yet but I can tell you that the excitement that knowing we only have 7 days left is extremely high in our house! We had a choice of any day next week and we went with Wednesday since Tuesday is our anniversary and well why wait Thursday and Friday if we can meet her on Wednesday?! I am a little nervous about being induced but we trust that it will go smoothly. I am in the best hands possible with my doctor and the Lord as his guide. We'll keep you posted but that is the latest. Thank you to all of you who have reached out to us this week. It has meant so much much. We need nothing more than your love, support, encouragement and prayers right now. With that being said....the countdown is officially on and you can bet I will be catching up on some much needed sleep in the next couple of days!!

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…
