My little prune

I had my 10 week appointment this afternoon at my OB office. Besides having to wait over an hour to be seen, it was an awesome visit. My nurse was the sweetest thing and went over a ton of things with me and answered questions I had. It came time for the doppler and she found the heart beat right away. It was registering high so she did an ultrasound right there to insure that there was only one little peanut growing in there. Yep, just one! We must have caught him/her at a very active time because the baby was kicking the little legs and moving those arms all over. It was at that instant that I felt my heart grow. I fell in love all over again. This pregnancy is just now starting to feel real! We have a healthy little one in there with a heart rate of 180...takes after it's big sister.

With that being said, I want to hear what y'all think we're having.
Is Kate going to have a baby brother or a baby sister?
There is a poll at the top, it's all anonymous. I can't wait to see what the majority says.
We find out in 40 or so days...

Also, stay tuned for my first trimester belly pics. I've been talking them weekly since we found out we were expecting at 4 weeks! Quite entertaining I must say! You'll get a kick out of watching me grow.

Oh yeah, and the little one is about the size of a prune right now. How sweet, right?

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. 

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…

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…
