28 Weeks Down, 12 More To Go!

28 Week Bump Board 
Third Trimester

frequent urination
harder to pick up and hold Brayden
sore and throbbing lady part. ): 
*apparently it is common due to the baby laying on blood vessels causing swelling.*
blotchy face. Not acne just red spots.
old stretch marks turning white.
restless legs one night
tossing and turning while trying to sleep
tender breasts

This week's big developments: By this week, your baby weighs 2.5 pounds and measures 16 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

Weight Gain/Loss:  +11 pounds
Sleep:  Brayden has been amazing sleeping in his crib. Sadly now I can't seem to get comfortable. I toss and turn all night. Left side, right side, sitting slightly up... 
Best Moment This Week: Best moment this week with Brayden was he started WALKING! My little 9 month baby is walking. *tears* Time is flying by way too fast! Best moment this week with Elena was the other night I was laying in the bath poking what I think was her butt and she started kicking back. It seems insane that she's already getting so big and strong. I'm truly so blessed!
Movement: ALL THE TIME. Love her kicks and wiggles. 
Food Cravings/Aversions: This week I actually ate sauerkraut! Hows that for a weird craving. 

What I Miss: I am still missing my clothes fitting right. Starting to get the lovely love handles! 
Stretch Marks:  Ive been keeping an eye out for any new ones but they seem to be doing fairly well. Seeing as stretch marks are genetic and my mother has them I knew I was going to get them too. I am thankful to have the few I do have. After this pregnancy I will be doing a tell and show all fourth trimester post. 
Belly Button: Brayden loves to pick at my belly button. He is so silly. He thinks mommies tummy is a drum.
Mood: This week I actually struggled with the stress and hormones. I took a slight break from social media to allow myself to calm down. With my pregnancy hormones, lets just say, my attitude is ten times worse. 
Labor SignsBaby girl is comfy inside and I am content with her there for the next 3 months. 
Upcoming Appointments/Events: I finally went to the hospital this morning and did my glucose test. I hope that my Doctor gets the results in time due to the fact that I put it on the back burner than life happened and I almost forgot to get it done. I was suppose to have my first appointment with my Midwife tomorrow but sadly she hasn't got her credentials to accept my insurance yet so I will be seeing another female OBGYN. I don't mind I have heard many good things about this doctor but I am still anxious to get back to my normal comfort zone with my midwife before things start to get more "serious". I have a 3D ultrasound next Wednesday on my 29th week. 
What I look forward to: Seeing my baby girls face. Having my midwife back. Moving into our house.  My "baby sprinkle". Brayden's first birthday. The birth of my baby girl and marrying the love of my life. 

Weekly Wisdom: Never forget to tell your loved ones how much you love them. You may miss the chance someday. Life works in mysterious ways. 

Starting weight 119lb - Starting waist measurement 31in. 

I am now 130.2 lbs and 37 3/4 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…
