10 Weeks Down, 30 More Weeks to go! ❤

Starting weight 120 pounds - Starting waist measurement 31.5 inches. 
measurements remain the same. 

Highlights and Lowlights of my Pregnancy Week 10:

  • The baby had a strong heartbeat of 145 bpm at first ultrasound.
  • I have had no bleeding or cramping! 
  • Loss of mucous plug bits stopped this week!
  • Nausea has calmed down a little. It's only bad in the car and after some meals. 

  • A little worried that the baby is smaller than what it's suppose to be. With Brayden and Elena everything was always right on track.
  • DIARRHEA after EVERY meal. Doesn't matter if  I eat chili or a salad.  
  • Loss of appetite  

Though baby  is barely the size of a kumquat — a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom — and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in it's body rapidly grow and mature.
Baby is swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including it's kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy If you could take a peek inside your womb, you'd spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.
In other developments: Your baby's limbs can bend now. It's hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over it's heart, and babys feet may be long enough to meet in front of its little body. The outline of baby's spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to stretch out from it's spinal cord. Your baby's forehead temporarily bulges with it's developing brain and sits very high on it's head, which measures half the length of it's body. From crown to rump, baby is about 1 1/4 inches long. In the coming weeks, your baby will again double in size — to nearly 3 inches.

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: Actually been tossing and turning due to gas and round ligament pains. 

Best moment this week: Sunday I had an amazing family day with Matt and the babies. 

Worst moment this week: Worst moment this week is having to run to the bathroom after EVERY MEAL. I never had this with my other pregnancies. 

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

Movement: No movement yet!

Cravings: Sandwiches, so Matt bought me fully cooked chicken breast. 

Queasy or sick: A tad better but still struggling. 

Looking forward to: The second trimester! 

Mood: Sometimes I feel like I am way over my head but my babies are the best things that have happened to me and they always make me feel better with their little giggles and smiles. 

Upcoming events/appointments: 
Appointment with my Midwife on November 11th.
First Trimester Testing and Ultrasound November 19th.

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

Weekly Wisdom: Don't let angry and jealous people ruin your momentum. They are only so hateful because they aren't happy with their own lives.

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…
