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!

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…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
