26 weeks

Will and I just finished up our last week in the 2nd trimester. So incredible.

Weeks: 26, did I really just say that? How am I 26 weeks already??

Cravings: I'm finding myself craving sweet and salty things all day long. Nothing in particular though!

Food Aversions: None! :)

Heartbeat: high 150's

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: This past week was a big growth week for our little guy. My tummy popped a little more and I felt every stretch! Forgot how painful those growth spurts are! I am super grumpy these days. Not sure if it's from our two year old who throws the most insane fits ever and makes me crazy, pregnancy hormones, the fact that I'm always tired or what but I apologize in advance if I come off as a grump towards you. I can't help it. I had a great DRs appointment on Monday, all is going well and as of Monday Will was still breech. I am up 14 pounds and I know I'm about to see a new number any day on the scale. I am proud of myself for staying in better shape this time around but we all know that is about to change with Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner. I am so screwed. My parents treated us to a 4D ultrasound this morning to get a sneak peek at our boy and I was SO amazed!! He is a full on little man already! Even more exciting news is that he flipped and is head down! Like way down! I know he can still change positions but I was really encouraged to see that he had moved. I could tell something was up due to the kicks in new places. Pregnancy is so incredible.


Will is now the size of a English Hothouse Cucumber (ever heard of one of those??) & weighs around 2 pounds.

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…
