23 Weeks Down, 17 More To Go!

22 Week Bump Board 

I apologize for this post being so delayed. Luckless has been swamped with orders with the coming Holiday and I made it my priority to have all their orders shipped ASAP so they would get them before Christmas. 


This week's big developments: Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound, you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.


How far along: 23 Weeks 

Gender: Baby GIRL 

Weight gain: +7 pounds. By this time with Brayden I had 
already gained almost twenty pounds!

Maternity clothes: I feel like the only thing that has grown is my chest and belly. 
Still no maternity clothes just lots of leggings!  

Stretch marks: My old ones are starting to become a bit more apparent now on my chest. 

Belly button in or out: I am almost convinced it may actually pop out with this pregnancy. Still looks like an orange navel! 

Sleep: Sleep has been such a day dream. Brayden has been a handful at night waking up every hour because he just cut 4 teeth. I feel like I will never get a full nights sleep again.

Best moment this week: My best moment this week was being able to spend time with my mother and sister-in-law. I am often buried in work and don't get to do much but I worked hard so I could take a day off to have a girls day where we went shopping and watched a movie together. 

Worst moment this week: I have to say that the worst moment this week was simply me being so busy and stressed. I have not had a chance to relax in so long and I can't wait to munch down on some food and spend time with family this coming week. Matts Birthday is also December 23rd!

Miss anything: SLEEP. I am so tired!

Movement: Elena moves all the time she's such a wiggle worm. She's starting to get so strong that her movements are almost visible through my clothes. 

Cravings: Cantaloupe and yogurt has been my go to meal all week. I have already ate two whole cantaloupes. 
Queasy or sick: I still struggle in the car with sickness and if I eat certain things but mostly its just migraines. 

Looking forward to: I am looking forward to feeling her hiccups and seeing her sweet face at 34 weeks.

Starting weight 119lb - Starting waist measurement 31in. 

I am now 126 lbs and 36.5 in.

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…
