22 weeks..

Here we are! Just a couple more weeks left in the 2nd trimester...

Weeks: 22

Cravings: No crazy cravings these past couple of weeks believe it or not. I feel somewhat normal. I am loving ice cream and pizza but nothing crazy or obnoxious!

Food Aversions: Same ol same ol. No chicken breasts or steaks..

Heartbeat: 161 at my appointment yesterday

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: I had a great doctors appointment yesterday. Got the results from my ultrasound and Will looks wonderful! So incredibly thankful for that news. My belly is still on the tiny side but that's not new news. My due date is now anywhere from Jan 28th-Feb 2nd so he is still shooting for the 31st of January. I am up a total of 10 pounds. I'm doing better that I did with Kate at this point, praying I can keep it below 30! With Thanksgiving and Christmas in my future, that's not looking too promising! In exciting news...Chris and I just booked our Babymoon. It's like a honeymoon, except I'm pregnant! We'll be spending a weekend away at a resort in Laguna Beach in December. I can hardly wait to have a weekend to ourselves, snuggle in sweats, walk the beach with hot cocoa, enjoy all the Christmas decorations and SLEEP. So much to look forward to in the coming days, weeks and months!

 Our little man is about 1 pound now and is the size of a spaghetti squash!

Hi Nikki. I am loving your baby comparisons to fruit and veggies. It is a great visual. Take care of yourself. Love you.

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…

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…

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..
