35 weeks and a Babymoon!

I cannot believe how fast the days are flying by. I'm finishing up my 35th week with sweet Mason in my belly and we are getting ready for his arrival and life with THREE kids. This is crazy. I've been calm this whole pregnancy about #3 but you know those pre-birth nerves that come before delivery? Yeah, I have those. Dumb.

I am feeling good for the most part. If you don't include sleep, being uncomfortable and looking like an Ogre, then things are awesome. I've never swelled during my previous pregnancies so this one has sort of taken me by surprise but I'm so close to the finish line and I'm trying to not focus on looking and feeling huge. This too shall pass. 

I'm hungry all the time but then I eat a little and feel like I just ate a cow because holy smokes there is no room left in there. My heartburn is just about as bad as it was with Kate. I'm on the highest dose of Zantac and still throw up... again, this too shall pass. 

Chris and I got away this past weekend to one of our favorite local resorts in the desert for our Babymoon. Whether you're on your first baby or your sixth, you need to take a babymoon. Such sweet time to re connect, talk and dream about the days ahead before we're totally incoherent sleep deprived again. It was so weird not having schedules to go off of and little ones to tend to. The rest was amazing but it was SO good coming home to our sweet treasures.

My to- list before Mason arrives is long but I'm making headway daily. My eyes are on the prize. I can hardly wait to lay in the hospital bed and just snuggle our newest love. 

 35 weeks down
less than 35 days to go.
Let's do this!

Also, I wonder if my friends will ditch me if I start wearing crocs until I get this boy out.
Only two pairs of my sandals fit on my right foot. What the what? Help!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

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…
