35 weeks

Weeks: 35

Cravings: Chocolate. Chocolate. Did I mention that I'm eating every piece of chocolate in sight?

Food Aversions: None!

Heartbeat: high 140's

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: I think it's safe to say that we're like 85% ready for this little guy. We are pretty much physically ready for him as far as his room being ready, all the clothes and accessories are washed, his moses basket is set up, the swing has been washed and is ready, the diaper bag is packed...that other 15% is me not being mentally prepared. The thought of having a newborn and a very busy 2 year old is daunting at times but I know it will end up being great. We already took the big leap of going from 0 kids to 1, so what's another one? I wish I could say that I'm feeling great but truth is, I feel like a fat pig who waddles around. I love being pregnant but I think the cuteness of having a belly has worn off and I'm over all of my maternity clothes. My mom said it best last night, I'm just a grumpy pregnant lady. I blame the dude and his testosterone. :) My weight is not pretty, I think this is the last check in where I will be sharing these numbers with y'all. 35 weeks and I'm up 26 whopping pounds of lard! I try to make myself feel better by reminding myself that Will is around 5.5 pounds right now and add another 5 pounds with all the other things in there and that's at least 10 pounds of baby. Whatever, it's all for a great cause and I know once I get to hold our boy I won't care how large I am. Next up on the things to do list is pack our hospital bag next week along with Kate's bag for the grandparents houses, get the cars detailed and install the infant car seat. Crazy!


The little dude is now about 5 pounds, the size of a honeydew!

You should feel better about yourself after reading this, don't you?

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…
