38 weeks

Weeks: 38

Cravings: Red Lobster. I have to go before I pop this kid out.

Food Aversions: none.

Heartbeat: high 140's

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: I've been slacking updating the blog and what's going on with baby boy! Hard to believe that he can come at any time. I've had a couple of false alarms this past week. I'm not the pregnant lady who calls the doctor every time I think I'm going into labor, thank God for google and friends who have experience with going into labor on their own to help get me through this waiting time. We are finally totally ready for our little man! Our bags are packed, the car seats are installed, everything has been bought, cleaned and is prepared to welcome Will into the world. Y'all will be happy to hear that my hair and nails have been done, I was even able to sneek in a little extra massage! He needs to come so I can stop shopping and cleaning! It's seriously out of control! I have two meals planned to make for the week and Chris and I have a date night planned and that's all I'm doing.. I'm totally pulling the pregnancy card and am surrendering my house-wife duties. I've reached a new low and burned myself while making macaroni and cheese. Who does that?! For those of you who like to be in the know and up to date with our exciting life (Ha) and who care to follow baby watch you can follow me on twitter {MrsNikkiAndrews} I will be updating it as much as I can and will have someone keeping my facebook up to date while I'm in labor. For those of you who think it's crazy to update while in labor and such...don't follow! I happen to love it when my friends keep all of us posted on the arrival on a new life. We are excited, anxious and so ready to meet our precious Will. I'm sure you can imagine the emotions that we are feeling knowing that his birthday could be any day now! My heart is at peace and just so excited to see his face and kiss his little nose for the first time. I wonder if he will have a head of dark hair like his big sister? What if he comes out bald? Ha, like that will ever happen! Such exciting days ahead. Please be praying for us this next week as we await the arrival of our precious son.

How big is Will?: He is about 6.8 pounds (which is what Kate weighed at birth) and is around 19.5 inches long! I pretty much have a watermelon in my tummy!

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!
