35 Weeks Down, 5 More To Go!



Highlights and Lowlights of my Pregnancy Week 34-35:
One more week down and 5 more to go!
I can't believe that next week makes only a month until Elena's arrival.
Time has seriously flown and I am just holding on to keep up.

***
This week Matthew and I celebrate our 2 year anniversary.
Brayden, Matthew and I ate out at a nice restaurant.
I love little family moments like that.
Our relationship isn't perfect.
Actually far from somedays.
We have just learned not to air out our dirty laundry.
Some days I feel like that is the golden rule to having a successful relationship.
It hasn't been easy but I feel blessed to have him in my life.
Two years down and a life time to go.

***
Brayden has still been a total HOOT!
He is climbing on and under EVERYTHING.
I feel like he is crying every 5 minutes because he falls down or hits his head.
I remind myself that he will eventually know the meaning of the word no.
Also I wont be huge and pregnant forever.
Chasing him will become easier!

***
I tell myself that I need to write down my symptoms when I experience them
throughout the week so I will have something to go off from for my post.
Yeah, well that never happens so here I am trying to recall what struggles I had this week.
Honestly the only thing that comes to mind is just out of breath.
Elena has been pushing off my hips and shoving her booty into my ribs.
Sometimes I feel like I have a big hump right under my boobs that people can see.
She is constantly pushing it still surprises me sometimes.
Stretch and grow big baby girl!

On that note,
35 week bump board.




My leggings are from our small town clothing shop

SYMPTOMS:
Uncomfortable 
Frequent urination
Braxton hicks more towards the evening.
Sore breasts and nipples!
Sore back at night
TIRED ALL THE TIME
Dry Hair
HEARTBURN
Cramps 
Itchy abdomen
CONSTIPATION


Weight gain: +6 lbs I am still 134! 

Stretch marks: I have to admit I have still been slacking on my lotions. Unpacking has been a nightmare. I need to get in a normal routine again! 

Belly button in or out: It is an innie outtie! 

Sleep: Sleep has been amazing! I haven't been getting more but I am not as tired. 

Best moment this week: My best moment this past week was my mom coming over and helping me unpack boxes and we did eachothers hair! I am so lucky to have her. 

Worst moment this week: My worst moment this week is just simply the stress. I don't understand how people expect me to do a MILLION things at once. I just want to have one lazy day or even just one day where I can put all my effort to ONE thing. (still the same!) Haha

Miss anything: I miss most of my clothes. I am reaching the part of pregnancy where I don't know what to wear! 

Movement: Elena has been pushing off my hips and then shoving her butt in my right ribs and her feet in my left ribs. Sometimes it surprises me and almost knocks the wind out of me. It astonishes me how big and strong she is! Maybe the reason I feel her sooner than I felt Brayden is because my baby belly is smaller and not giving her as much cushion. ( still the same)

Cravings: Hmmm SHAMROCK SHAKE!!!!!! Thank you McDonalds. 

Queasy or sick: I have been pretty perfect this past week. A few cramps but nothing too out of the ordinary! 

Looking forward to: I am looking forward to getting Elena's room ready for her arrival! 

Mood: Lately I have been dealing with so much sometimes I get sad but I am working on staying positive! 

Upcoming events/appointments: Appointment with my MidWife next friday! Then I start my weekly appointments! 

What I look forward to: Unpacking and feeling at home finally. Brayden's first birthday, Elenas' birth and marrying the love of my life this October. 
Weekly Wisdom: I’ve killed myself with changes trying to make things better, but I ended up becoming something better than what I had planned to be.
Explains Brayden PERFECTLY this past week.
Growing up way too fast! 
Attitude of a teenager already. 

Starting weight 119 pounds - Starting waist measurement 31 inches. 
I am now 134 pounds and 39 inches.

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…
