The iPack Chevron Diaper Bag

I get so many complements on this diaper bag and several moms ask where I got it. So I decided to share it with you all. 🙂

I needed a BIG diaper bag for both Bostin, Gatlin, and my stuff. There are several designer diaper bags that are super cute, however I’m cheap and spending $150-$200 on a diaper bag is just cray cray to me! During my nights dealing with pregnancy insomnia I would search for the perfect bag that wasn’t over priced.  Low and behold I found this one online at Walmart.com it was $20.66! To good to be true? I think not! I ordered it immediatly and had it shipped to the store. Three weeks into using it I am completely happy with it, I may order an extra one for back up!!

37 Weeks Pregnant!

Baby Bump #4 Update!
37 weeks pregnant… considered full term!
21 days to go!

image

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update.  I’ve been crazy busy these past couple weeks, not to mention extremely drained.  I’m hoping this little guy holds off from coming any time soon,  this momma is slacking on getting my house organized and ready for another baby. I work better under pressure so obviously waiting till last minute is something I’d totally do! Ugg 😛

Beginning weight: 118lbs (height 5’1″)

Current Weight: 140lbs

Gender:  Boy!!!

Baby Names: Ugh this is SO hard!!!  Two we have picked out are Bostin and Ryott.

Baby is the size of a Winter Melon!

Maternity Clothes? A few pieces but mostly yoga pants! Definitely getting uncomfortable and none of my tees fit… so I’m counting down days till I pop lol!

Sleep? What’s that? Lol i haven’t slept this entire pregnancy unless I take benadryl.

Linea Nigra? Very light,  can’t even really see it.

Stretch Marks? Not any new just old ones.

Symptoms:
Shortness of breath, Probably due to my boobs quadrupling in size and accounting for 90% of my weight gain lol!! 😉

Heartburn/Acid Reflux has become VERY annoying. 

Braxton Hicks contractions are very frequent.

Baby boy moves like crazy, and often gets hiccups. 

Morning sickness has decided to make it’s way back into my world. Which makes eating and drinking difficult.  Same with the heartburn!

Workouts?  With getting contractions early I’m playing it safe and sticking to stretching, yoga movements,  and my normal daily activities (running our gym, training clients, and chasing a toddler around lol).

Diet? I’m still following IIFYM, with macros at 80-100g fats/ 400-450g carbs / 110-120g Protein / 35-50g Fiber …it’s almost become difficult to hit these daily due to my stomach shrinking or being smashed lol. NOTE: this isn’t normal for most pregnant women, I worked for months before I got pregnant to build up my metabolism.
Lately my numbers have been much lower, not by choice.  But morning sickness and acid reflux make eating near impossible right now.

Supplements?
Prenatal Pill
Vitamin E
ProSupps Liquid Aminos PSXXIII
ProSupps Karbolic
ProSupps TC-F Isolate Protein
Black Strap Molasses
Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar (helps acid reflux… among other things)

Maternity Clothes? Nope not yet!

Sleep? Not so good. 

Linea Nigra? Nope not yet

Workouts? Honestly my workouts lately have been training clients and running my gym. I know it’s an excuse but I get “crampy” towards the end of the day and being high risk it’s not worth it. 

Diet? I’m still following IIFYM, with macros at 60-85g fats/ 400-450g carbs / 110-120g Protein / 35-50g Fiber …it’s almost become difficult to hit these daily due to my stomach shrinking or being smashed lol.

24 Weeks Pregnant!

Baby Bump #4 Update! 
24 weeks pregnant!

Beginning weight: 118lbs
Current Weight: 125lbs

Gender: Boy!!! ♥♡♥

Symptoms: 
Doing great! Baby boy is growing at lightning speed and I feel him move all day long! My appetite has been decreasing a bit probably due to my stomach being smashed lol. AND on a very positive note my insomnia is getting a little better… now I wake up at 4am instead of 1am. That’s progress! My doctor did say this is very common with pregnant women he suggested taking Benadryl or Tylenol PM. 

Workouts:
I am slowly getting back into working out. I stopped Dec 17th because I was getting contractions afterwards. I have been doing light weight with 20-30 reps. And lots of bodyweight movements. So far so good! Also I make sure I have a gallon of water in before I even think of working out!! Even slight dehydration can cause contractions. 

Supplements:
Prenatal pills

17 Weeks Pregnant!

Baby Bump Update! 
17 going on 18 weeks pregnant!

Beginning weight: 118lbs (lost 10lbs due to morning sickness)
Current Weight: 116lbs…. since I stopped taking my progesterone (2 weeks ago) I have noticed lots of swelling. Mainly in my boobs lol. I’m not complaining though! 

Gender: Boy!!! ♥♡♥

Symptoms: No new symptoms. My hubby surprised me with an ultrasound. Baby looks great and everything is going good. However I have a concern (and being high risk I get nervous) my concern is that during the ultrasound I was getting Braxton Hicks contractions. It’s not so much the contractions it’s where they are. They are directly under my placenta. 
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed this “cramping” after every workout. But it was really the Braxton Hicks contractions. I’m not dehydrated and I don’t strain during my workouts. But until my next doctors appt I’m going to stop weight training completely. Everything may be just fine and my doctor may say I can continue to workout. But my main priority is delivering a healthy baby boy. So until my appointment I’m taking it easy
