20 weeks and a NAME!

Every time I think about being 20 weeks pregnant I can't stop singing, woooooooah we're halfway there!! It blows my mind to think that in 4 short months our precious new baby boy will be in our arms!


I've been terrible about documenting my pregnancy on the blog but so far have kept up with it on Instagram with weekly pictures and snippets of the week.  Now that we're halfway there I'll update how things are going thus far..

Weeks: 20

Cravings: I've been on a chocolate kick. Not surprising but the first time I've had a need for it since being pregnant. So good!

Food Aversions: None really. I always think I want eggs and then feel so gross afterwards.

Heartbeat: high 150's

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: I'm feeling really good and have been surprised how easy this pregnancy has been {besides those yucky first few weeks}. I usually forget that I'm pregnant until I sit down and start to feel him wiggle around which is the best feeling ever! I'm trying really hard to eat well and be healthy this pregnancy, as of this morning I am up 4 pounds from my pre baby weight which for me is awesome. I think I gained 30 something with each Kate and Will. Who am I kidding though? I'm only halfway done!

How big is baby 3.0? Little man is about 10.5 ounces and 10 inches long from head to heel, pretty much the size of a banana!

 
The best part about this past week is we have officially agreed on a name!!! I had a name and Chris had one, we each liked each others picks but I could tell Chris wasn't totally digging mine. So we left it up to Kate. I wrote down each name and folded them up and put them in a bowl for Kate to pick. She picked Chris'. We laughed because we both knew that would end up being his name but for kicks Chris decided to fold the names up again and put them on the dart board. He hit one dead on, we opened it and it was the same name.. so after many confirmations and much prayer baby Andrews 3.0 has a name..


 
Mason James Andrews.
We can hardly wait to meet you!!!!
James is the name of my brother who Jesus called to Heaven as a baby and is also the middle name of my Grandpa Marshall who is in Heaven. We're so excited to have their name a part of our boy.
And Mason, well it was your daddy's pick which I happen to love as well.
Keep cookin' and kickin' baby boy!

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…
