29 Weeks Down, 11 More To Go! ❤




Only one more week until we are on the final countdown!
I had Elena at 38 weeks so it amazes me that this little man
could be here in less than 10 weeks
I am doing my stretches and breathing exercises to prepare for THREE! -haha
But seriously, I was like Mom I have adjusted to two easily
but THREE... I only have two arms!
When anyone finds someone capable of cloning let me know.

Brayden must sense that something is changing because BOY
has he been a little trouble maker! 
Elena learns everything from him too so she's always right there with him. 
Then again right around the corner (19 days) he turns TERRIBLE TWO!
Here this whole time I was thinking one was terrible it couldn't 
possibly get worse... yeah think again. 
I think his attitude and ability to tone me out has doubled with his age.

Elena is still SO CLOSE to walking but just taking her time.
I keep catching her just standing in the middle of the room with
no support but she doesn't attempt to take steps just dance or clap.
It has been such a blessing watching them both grow even in they
can drive me 50 shades of NUTS some days. 

As you know if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook 
yesterday we got the pleasure of seeing Treyson in 3D!
It was amazing seeing him kick, grab his toes, swallow fluid
and even just roll around in my tummy. 

He is 2lbs 13ounces and measuring in 67th percentile!
Remember when I said they have my Due Date at 05.31.15
because at my very first ultrasound he was measuring small.
Well he is still measuring 5 days ahead of that date
making him due on 05.26.15 like I have said since the beginning.
Since it isn't a week difference though they don't make changes
on my hospital records or anything. 
It doesn't really bother me I just continue to go with the closer 
date that matches my missed period and day of ovulation.

We did find out that he is currently breech.
He was head down at my ultrasounds at 16 & 20 weeks
so I am not too worried because he has plenty time to flip.
She also said I have a great amount of fluid so that will help.
Finding out he was breech did help me realize why
my bump is so low and I have so much pressure.
Little man is just butt down on my pelvis and head up by my ribs.
I am currently taking kicks to lower region and head butts to the ribs. 
While I am appreciative that he is allowing me to breathe easy
he better turn his little butt around soon because this momma
is petrified of c sections and their recovery process. 
Look at his pointy nose! I love it. 




Grabbing his precious little toes. 


You can see his cord in front of his face. 

I am so in love already!

All three of my precious babies in 3D. Brayden, Elena and Treyson going left to right. 

On that note, Let's get to my 29 week bump board.
Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. Right now, we weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but he's still got a ways to go — can you believe he'll triple in weight before birth?

Starting weight 120 pounds - Starting waist measurement 31.5 inches. 
137lbs & 39 inches 
WEIGHT: +17 pounds
WAIST: 38.5 inches (+7.5 inches) 

Look at my basketbump :) 


Highlights and Lowlights of my Pregnancy Week 29:

Highlights: 
  • Baby boy moves a ton and reassures mom he's okay.
  • I have had no bleeding and loss of mucus plug the past THREE weeks!
  • Baby boy had a strong heartbeat of 130bpm
  • Being blessed with a healthy baby and pregnancy so far!

Lowlights:
  • Still struggling with pelvis and hip pain. Its more my lower back almost tail bone.
  • Baby boy is breech.
  • RESTLESS LEGS! 
  • Peeing when I sneeze.
  • I can no longer see my lady bits to shave - haha
  • Having to pee constantly.
  • Stressed and tired! 



Weight Gain/Loss:  +17 pounds

Sleep: Sleep is still very uncomfortable. It is only going to get worse from here on and I am prepared, kinda. - haha

Best Moment This Week: We went on a play date with my friend Brittany and her son! Got to see Treyson in 3D! Today is mine and Matts 3 year anniversary! MOMCODE is doing so amazing! The weather was so nice yesterday we went for a walk with the babies to get Texas Hot down town!

Movement: ALL THE TIME. He is a non stop ninja in there. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: Still anything sweet! Girl Scout cookies have been my best friend and worst enemy. 


What I Miss: I miss relaxing sleep and being able to chase my babies or clean the house without getting out of breath. 

Stretch Marks: No new ones yet! The time is coming my friend though. 

Belly Button: Belly button still looks like a navel of an orange as you can see for yourself. 

Mood: This week I have actually been feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Just trying to stay calm and positive. 

Labor SignsBaby boy shows no signs of coming any time soon and thats okay with momma!

Upcoming Appointments/Events: I have to go to the hospital and do my glucose test sometime this week... yes still. I have been putting on that test for awhile. I have an appointment with my midwife next Tuesday and I also have an interview with the hospital to take photos with my midwife and say why I think choosing Jen and midwifes in general is such a good choice compared to a regular OBGYN. 

What I look forward to: Brayden's second birthday. Elena's first birthday. The birth of my baby boy. Possibly buying our first home. 


Weekly Wisdom: Don't let other peoples opinions change the way you look at yourself. They only know what they chose to see. You know what you feel, think, accomplish and even see first hand.

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…
