Highlights and Lowlights of my Pregnancy Week 31:




Highlights: 
  • Baby boy moves a ton and reassures mom he's okay.
  • Being blessed with a healthy baby and pregnancy so far!
  • I am almost positive he is head down again! 
  • I can tell he is growing everyday getting ready to make his appearance. 
  • Restless legs wasn't bad this week!
  • Baby boy constantly has hiccups and it's so adorable. 

Lowlights:
  • Lower back / tailbone pain is HORRIBLE the past 3 days.
  • Unending migraines this week.
  • Lost some mucous plug with a tint of blood.
  • Ive been having Braxton hicks like crazy with slight cramping. 
  • Craving all things sweet and little self control! LMAO
  • Getting harder to chase around the kids and do everyday chores.
  • The lump in my breast is getting larger every week and is really painful lately.  




Weight Gain/Loss:  +19 pounds

Sleep: Sleep is good once I get comfortable and actually fall asleep.

Best Moment This Week: Brayden's birthday was yesterday and we had such an amazing family day doing fun stuff. He is such a blessing and his giggle lights up my world. I can't believe my little man is TWO! 

Movement: His big movements are slowing down now and being replaced with more rolling and hiccuping. I swear little man constantly has hiccups! 
One day this week I was so busy I didn't realize he hadn't been moving much :( I quickly jugged some raspberry-cran juice and hopped in the bath to get him all wound up. I was so relived when he was okay. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: I am currently eating frozen blueberries out of a cup with a spoon as I type this! lol It's better than the chocolate chip cookies I want to devour that sit in the kitchen I suppose. 

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. I think my old ones are starting to turn more reddish now and they are certainly itchy. 

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

Mood: Emotional and tired. Just another sign that we are coming to the end of this pregnancy.

Labor SignsLoss of some mucous plug and pelvis/tailbone pain. Hoping little man stays in there at least 5 more week though!

Upcoming Appointments/Events:  I have an appointment Wednesday morning!

What I look forward to: Elena's first birthday. The birth of my baby boy. Possibly buying our first home. Getting a bigger vehicle. Seeing my three babies together. 


Weekly Wisdom: Sometimes you just have to let go and enjoy the cookies.

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…
