28 weeks.

Weeks: 28, hello third trimester!!!!!

Cravings: I am eating everything in sight.

Food Aversions: None!

Heartbeat: high 150's

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: Thrilled to be in the 3rd trimester. I still can't believe how fast this has/is going! 9-12 weeks left and SO much to do!!! I'm feeling good and as I stated above I am eating everything in sight! I am embarrassed to share with anyone how much weight I've gained thus far (especially in the past two weeks) but I've shared all along and will continue to do so. I'm up a total of 18 pounds :::gasp::: 10 pounds of that has to be baby right?? I was a naughty girl and bought the Halloween candy on clearance last weekend and ate almost all 30 pieces in the past week. That was a big no no. I clearly can't handle having it around. BUT our little guy is growing and getting SO strong! His movements are amazing. You can see his elbow and hands moving all around through my tummy. I have to get it on video one of these days. So incredible. Hoping that his bedding arrives in the next two weeks so we can start on his nursery. I am so ready to get it started! Lots to be thankful for these days. These next couple of weeks are going to be really exciting!

Will is now the size of a Chinese cabbage and weighs around 2 pounds 2 ounces!

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…

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!
