13 Weeks Down, 27 More Weeks to go! ❤

Starting weight 120 pounds - Starting waist measurement 31.5 inches. 

Highlights and Lowlights of my Pregnancy Week 10:

  • Baby's heartbeat was a strong 156bpm
  • I have had no bleeding or cramping! 
  • Still not losing as much of my mucous plug!
  • Nausea has calmed down a little. It's only bad in the car and after some meals. 
  • Got to see my precious baby at our ultrasound!
  • Almost out of the FIRST TRIMESTER! 
  • My prediction was right on the baby's due date.  05-26-15
  • No more horrible diarrhea! 
  • Bloated has started to go away!

  • Exhaustion has kicked in at full force!
  • Easily upset!
  • Loss of appetite. 
  • Round ligament pains especially when I sneeze.
  • Breasts are starting to feel tender.
  • Gassy. 

  • It’s still stone fruit season this week and your baby is in the peach section. That’s right; it is the size of a ripe peach and is probably just as fuzzy at this stage of its development. The fine hair which covers the surface of your baby’s body at 13 weeks serves to protect its skin when it is floating around in all that water.
  • Your baby is preparing its vocal chords from this week. One of the most amazing noises you will ever hear is your baby’s first cry, a mix between relief and longing to calm them. There will be times of course when you’ll wish those vocal chords didn’t work quite as well as they do. Welcome to parenthood.
  • The connections between your baby’s brain, muscles and nerves have all formed by now. They are able to move freely and use their muscles to push and pull themselves into various positions.

Uterus is the size of a grapefruit.

Weight gain: Same weight.

Stretch marks: No new ones!

Belly button in or out: It is an innie outtie! I have never had it pop out for any of my pregnancies.

Sleep: Elena has been waking up every hour at the least so sleep hasn't been happening at night for this momma. 

Best moment this week: I got to see precious baby at my 13 week screening and ultrasound.  

Worst moment this week: I have been beyond emotional and easily peeved this week. I think the stress is getting to me. 

Miss anything: I miss not being a hormonal mess. I have never felt more insecure and needy. 

Movement: No movement yet just gas! 

Cravings: Sweet stuff this week! Chocolate, fruits, cherry pie, waffles. The list goes on!  

Queasy or sick: Just tired this week. I still can't eat in the mornings but i'm use to that by now. 

Looking forward to: The second trimester! 

Mood: With the babies I am beyond happy and loveable no matter my mood. Elena melts you with her giggles and Brayden's kisses and hugs always fill my heart with love. I have still been pulling away from everything else. Talking to a bunch of people add on to my stress so I have just been concentrating on me and my family. 

Upcoming events/appointments: 
Appointment with my midwife December 9th!

What I look forward to: A confirmation that the baby is okay and growing perfectly!

Weekly Wisdom: Sometimes you just need to distance yourself from people. If they care, they’ll notice. If they don’t you know where you stand.

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…
