18 Weeks Down, 22 More To Go! ❤

18 Week Bump Board ❤

Hey everyone! This week has been CRAZY! I have been so anxious and excited about finding out the gender of Baby Morris. PLUS my belly finally POPPED, not literally, it just finally started showing and boy am I feeling the round ligament pains from it! Besides having to pee so bad every half hour and occasional cramps I am still doing A-OK! Hard to believe I am almost half way through my pregnancy already. Thank you all for joining my journey and always being so supportive. It means the world to me! I was blessed to have the opportunity to have hundreds of shoulders to lean on when I am feeling down! On that note, here is my 18 WEEK POST! 

Baby is 5.5 inches long
and weighs 5 ounces!

How far along? 18 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: I started at 119 I am now 120 pounds.

Maternity clothes? Still packed away! Love my leggings though!

Stretch marks? No new ones. The ones on my boobs are starting to show up again. 

Sleep: HORRIBLE. So many cramps this week.   

Best moment this week: This week Brayden has just been the cutest little thing EVER! I honestly can't get enough of him. He will be an amazing little brother.

Miss Anything? I miss cold meat sandwiches! Ha 

Movement: I have started to feel little flutters but can't wait to start feeling and seeing my baby kick! 

Food cravings: FRUIT, FRUIT, FRUIT, FRUIT! Lots of starburst! Haha

Anything making you queasy or sick: Red Meat, Potato Chips & Car Rides

Have you started to show yet: YESSSSSS! Bring on the baby bump!

Gender prediction: Matt and I agree on BOY!

Belly Button in or out? In. It never popped out with Brayden. 

Wedding rings on or off? On and loose. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: People have been causing lots of drama on my social media so thats stressful but other than that I am still feeling very blessed for my boys and baby number two! 

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender & feeling the baby move! 

Starting weight 119lb 
Starting waist measuremenst 31in. 

I am now 120lbs and 33in. 

NOVEMBER 14th 2013! 
Is when we find out the sex.
Little over 1 day! 

This week's big developments: Baby now may be large enough for you to feel he/she twisting, rolling, kicking, and punching its way around the womb. Plus, they are developing yawning and hiccuping skills (you may feel those soon, too!) Baby now has its own unique set of toe and fingerprints! 

Your Body in Week 18 of Pregnancy:

Oh, my aching back! If you've uttered those words more than once this week, here's why: Your uterus, now about the size of a cantaloupe, is causing your body's center of gravity to shift, pulling the lower back forward and pushing the abdomen out (so now everyone can see that you’re pregnant!). On top of all that, joint-loosening pregnancy hormones are wreaking havoc on your muscles and ligaments, adding up to one big ouch!

Confessions of a Hair Color-a-Holic

When sitting and deeply thinking about something harmful that I am addicted to it took awhile for me to come to terms with the ONE and only addiction that I have. 
Coloring & Bleaching my hair.
I have never:  smoked tried any drugs rarely drank alcohol chewed tobacco eat lots of junk food or even drank caffeinated drinks.
I am fairly borderline boring besides the fact that  I am ADDICTED TO CHANGING MY HAIR. Here is my story and eye opener:
I started coloring my hair when I was 15 year old.  For the longest time I was a tom boy and had naturally long dirty blond hair.  The first color I ever did was burgundy underneath and low lights up top. After that it was a spiral of different colors. 
Strawberry blonde, dark brown, blonde with red low lights, platinum blonde, chestnut brown it never ended. Along with all the colors I also had issues with ever growing my hair out again  because I was constantly ruining my hair with chemicals.
I started wearing my first set of clip in extensions when I wa…

Chicken Pox after Vaccine

The run around due to Breakthrough Varicella
On October 30th 2014 my son got his Chickenpox Vaccine. 

November 24th  I noticed a few bumps on his stomach when he woke up and called his pediatrician for an appointment right away. The doctor said that they were bug bites.  When I asked about the chicken pox vaccine she assured me that the rash had nothing to do with the vaccine. I picked up calamine lotion and carpet insect killer.  Went home and stripped his bedding, bleached his crib rails and mattress,  sprayed his carpet with the insect killer and even got rid of our dog. The bumps dried up but as soon as they did...
December 2nd Brayden was once covered in bumps.  They were mostly on his back/neck and stomach. I freaked out thinking that it was a bug again even though he sleeps in footie pjs. Once again I sprayed the carpets, stripped his bedding and bleached his mattress. I searched HIGH and LOW looking for any bug(s) or even a spider web. The bumps dried up and went away but not for long. 
By Dec…

An honest blog about Honest Diapers ❤ PART ONE

Before I get into the benefits of Honest Diapers I wanted to first share my story on the struggles I dealt with that lead me to Honest. 
My first born, Brayden, always struggled with diaper rash from name brand diapers.  When he was first born we used Huggies.  I noticed that I would have to CAKE on ointment just to keep the rash away when he didn't even had diarrhea or a soiled diaper. 
We then switched to LUVS. Within a week his rash was even worse and peeling.  I once again headed to the store to look and buy new diapers.
All these store named diapers that you always hear and every box is saying how amazing their brand is but even Pampers didn't help his poor butt. I was spending tons of money on diapers and diaper rash cream too! 
I then switched to Huggies Naturals. He still got a rash and our problems were far from gone.  Brayden came down with a virus that consisted of unending diarrhea.  Mixing diarrhea with an already sore bottom was not a good mix.  I took my poor b…
