20 Weeks Down, 20 More To Go!

20 Week Bump Board 

HALF WAY
I am posting this update a few days early due to the Thanksgiving Holiday coming and Black Friday! I am already struggling to keep up with it all and I knew it would only get worse as the week continued! So as I always say, on that note on to my 20 week update! 

This week I struggled with round ligament pains and cramps in my lower abdomen. I feel like she is extremely low and I foresee these cramps being common as I grow larger! I had Army Drill this past weekend and the first morning I could button my pants I woke up the next morning and couldn't even come close after having horrible pains all Saturday! I am just relieved and happy that she is growing and healthy. I can't wait to meet my baby girl. My perfect family will be complete.



T
his week's big developments: For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against their torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of its head to its bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, she is measured from head to toe. She's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for her digestive system. She's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in her bowels, and you'll see it in her first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).



How far along? 19 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: +6lbs

Maternity clothes? My size zero pants are finally getting too tight! 

Stretch marks? No new ones. Applying lotion and bio oil like crazy! 

Sleep: I AM SO SLEEPY!!!!!!

Best moment this week: I feel as if my belly finally POPPED this week. I feel HUGE. 

Miss Anything? I miss my clothes fitting! Ha

Movement: I love feeling her movements. 

Food cravings: Milk and Chocolate this week! Probably why I gained 3 lbs! Ha

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

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

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: Finally getting back to my jolly self. Just crazy sleepy along with it! 

Looking forward to: Actually seeing movements and having a big baby bump!

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…
