Bumpdate!

Hello friends! Just got home from my doctor appointment. I am 30 weeks and 5 days. I am so ready to be not pregnant anymore! Haha I’ve reached the point of when I drop something it stays there, I don’t tie shoes, and I need a chair next to the stove so I can take breather breaks. I’m so exhausted but don’t get me wrong I am so excited. I want baby P to be here so I can see her sweet face and love and cuddle her.

I want to be able to workout and get back in shape. I want to know where we are moving and move so I can decorate and organize the kids rooms and the whole house. It is just such a big year for us and I want to jump head first!

This pregnancy has been difficult but also easy. I have been very sick and my heartburn has gotten so much worse. I start coughing at night to where I pee and almost throw up and leave the bed bc I know my husband needs sleep. But only about 8 weeks left. I keep telling myself I can do it. It’ll go by quick 🤞🏼

New Year, New Me?!

Such a cheesy saying I know. But a new year typically marks the start of changes we want to make. Whether we want to be more confident, thinner, more fit, less debt.. and so on. Today I am 28w4d pregnant. Fully in my third trimester and ready for everything this year is going to bring me.

Today I started the 30 days to healthy living (30dhl) challenge and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I plan on sharing a little more of my pregnancy journey as well as my fitness and nutrition journey. I know this will be a huge year.

I wanted to explain the 30dhl a little bit because I realized many people had the wrong idea of what it is. First I would like to mention I have been studying health/nutrition for many years and have my master’s in public health. These aren’t just opinions, I will be stating facts. The program is not a lose weight quick fad diet, tho you can lose weight. You don’t have to work out tho physical activity will help you reach results and is always a good idea for your heart health. This program focus on detoxifying your body and teaching you how to FUEL your body with proper nutrition. Using Arbonnes products just makes it so much easier bc you only have to worry about one healthy meal a day and use the shakes to provide all the nutrition you need for the other 2 meals.

It seriously couldn’t be easier to be healthy. And as a pregnant lady I can feel so good about getting all the protein and nutrients and vitamins I need with little to no effort!

I feel the need to share this info because it seriously changes lives! Balances sugar with no spikes, no feeling hungry or depriving yourself through the day, just pure, beneficial nutrition.

If you have any questions please let me know! I get so excited about this stuff and I am so focused on helping people get healthier.

Happy New Year Babes!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a fun, safe new year. It was my husbands birthday yesterday so we made lots of food and hung out. Simple but that seems to be the life with kids and being prego.

I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant and I can not wait for this to be over. I feel bad saying that because there are so many women who would love to be pregnant but this has been a rough one for me.

Any ways, it’s a new year and for some reason we take that as a chance to set new goals and make changes. Even tho we literally can take those steps anytime. What are your resolutions for 2018? Here are mine:

  • Survive the last couple months of this pregnancy and delivery a happy, healthy baby.
  • Focus on my health. Nutrition will be huge for me and I’ve already started this but I will be getting more intense on this point.
  • Working out WILL be a priority. I feel I let taking care of everyone else take up so much time that I neglect myself.
  • I need to learn to love my body and self. Post baby bodies are not what Victoria secret models get because most of us do not have cooks, trainers, and nannies to take care of everything. I know it will take time but I will reach a place where I’m not crying in fitting rooms, hating how I look.
  • Focus on my business and my blog and post on a better schedule
  • Lastly it is always a focus of mine to be positive and spread good vibes. Patience is key. Life is hard and we shouldn’t make it meaner and harder than it already is.

2019 is going to be a huge year. I will be having a baby, my son will be a big brother, we will be moving, selling our house and buying a new one and my husband will start a new job.

I pray only the best for 2019 for all of us 💚

Future Baby Wish List

Okay so the title isn’t the most clear but I really couldn’t think of a better title! I have been collecting a list of some baby products that I will have to try out if I have another little one! So let’s dive into this list!

  1. Tranquilo Mat This mat is super cool. It has different vibrating settings that calm and soothe babies off to sleep. It is super cool and if you have ever dealt with a baby who is crying for no reason then you could see where this gadget would come in handy.
  2. Baltic Amber Teething Necklace For Babies– This teething necklace is supposed to help with all things that come with teething. Less drooling, pain, and anti flammatory properties. Sounds like a real win win!
  3. 4moms Baby Swing– This is a pricier item but from what I hear it is the best. I got baby K a chair but I wish I would have listened to my best friend and gotten this bad boy to begin with. It will definitely be on my wish list for next round.
  4. 3 Sprouts Play Mat Bag– This guy is really cool, especially if you travel alot. It seems like we are always on the move. This is a play mat that zips up so you can store toys inside. So easy just unzip, play and zip back up to hit the road or keep your house a little neater!
  5. The NEW One Z Nursing Pillow– This pillow is so much better than the boppy in my opinion if you plan on using it for breastfeeding. Now there is nothing with the boppy, I let my little guy lay on it and use it but for breastfeeding the one z pillow has a back support! I really do love it.
  6. SoundBub, Bluetooth Speaker and White Noise Machine | Portable and Rechargeable Baby Sleep Soother – Okay so it is a super long link but this guy is so cute and again since we travel so much having a traveling noise machine is a must. and this guy doubles as a speaker all with no wires needed!!

Alrighty guys I am always on the search on the latest products so if you can think of anything else I got to check out let me know in the comments!!!

I Finally Got It!!!!!!

Guys I finally got it. What you ask? My dream diaper bag!! It was a little on the pricier side when it comes to some diaper bags but just wait! If you are interested in getting your own you can find it here : timi & leslie Rachel 7-Piece Diaper Bag Set, Caramel. Okay so this bag is awesome. first it is vegan leather and my favorite thing is that it looks like a beautiful purse, not a diaper bag. I personally feel like the diaper bags you see in stores are plastic-y and bulky. IMG_0828

It comes in 4 colors, I chose the caramel color. It is 159$ but I have to say it is totally worth it. It comes with a detachable shoulder strap so that you can wear it as a crossbody if you choose. It also comes with 2 stroller straps so you can easily attach it to your stroller. You also get an insulated bottle tote to keep babies bottle warm or cool. A zippered sac is also inside to place any soiled clothes that may happen throughout the day and a changing pad that has a spot to hold diapers is also inside. There is also a super cute matching wristlet for mom inside!FullSizeRender(9)(Picture credit: Timi and Leslie)

The bag itself has 5 large pockets on the inside and 4 super cute pockets on the outside. The handle is braided. The whole bag is water resistant and literally fits everything! There is even a key chain clip on the inside so you won’t loose your keys!!IMG_0827I seriously am so glad I finally broke down and got this bag. It took me weeks to finally commit to this purchase. Check out my video to get an updated version of what’s in my diaper bag!! Click Here!

Please let me know what bags you are loving!!!

Finding the Best Diaper Bag

Finding the perfect diaper bag can be super difficult! Trust me I am still looking every time I go out shopping. Here are some of the bags that I have found that are pretty great and might fit your style. They are a range of prices and styles so maybe you will find one that you love!

  1. Boxy Backpack- Petunia Pickle Bottom– Okay hold on to your wallet, this bag is pricey! The Petunia Pickle Bottom bags are great and come in so many colors and styles to choose from. I like backpack styles because they are easy to throw on while juggling baby.
  2. Downtown Tote- Petunia Pickle Bottom– This is another style of the PPB collection. It is a little less expensive than the previous style but still gives you that purse feel. My biggest problem for diapers bags personally is I don’t want to feel like I am carrying luggage and this style is like carrying a purse with lots of pockets.
  3. Ju Ju Be Diaper Bag– This bag still is on the pricey side but it is another great back pack style. It has insulated pockets for bottles, a memory foam changing pad, and an anti-microbial lining. Overall a very cool style if you are willing to spend a little money.
  4. Skip Hop Diaper Bag– Finally we are under 100$!! This bag is pretty cool because it has large separated sections with one being specially designed for mom! It has 11 pockets and is waterproof which is everything. Babies are wet creatures haha!
  5. Oh Joy! Back pack– This is a style extremely similar to the first bag on the list from petunia pickle bottom. It is a boxy backpack style and it is big enough to fit everything and the colors are so pretty!
  6. Fashion Mummy Nappy Bag– This bag is probably my favorite for the price. It is a good size, again a backpack style (Sorry!) and comes in 5 or 6 colors. It has bottle holders and pockets so you can fit and organize everything!
  7. Thirty-one Utility Tote– This one is so affordable and you can pick from lots of styles. I have this one myself and though I don’t carry it on a daily basis because of the size, it does make a great car bag. Keep a set of everything you could need (see my packing a diaper bag post) in the bag in the car and you are always set.
  8. Most affordable option!– So this is actually what I have and use on the daily. I bought a inexpensive purse organizer off of amazon and put it in my purse that I have had for years and call it a day. It keeps everything I need for baby in one spot and I can easily pull it out and take it where I need if needed.

Of course I could go on and on about all the bags out there. There are a million! Please let me know what kind you got and what your favorites are!
