23 Weeks. & 1 day.

4 Aug

I’m sure I’ve said this before BUUUUT. We CANNOT wait to meet our son.
16 weeks & 6 days to go… Considering he comes on his due date. 🙂
Which I hope he does because I really want to have thanksgiving dinner AND still be able to go shopping on Black Friday. Lol.
That’s probably not gonna happen, but I can dream!

We FINALLY finished putting our room together Friday.
Including the most amazing curtains ever which totally block out the sun.
This is extremely helpful being that we sleep during the day since Domonique is on graveyards.
I think we both had the BEST sleep ever since we’ve moved here.
We ordered a new bedroom furniture set when we moved a few months ago.
Since our last bed was low profile we didn’t have a boxspring.
So we finally got that as well.
& I just loveeee how cute our room looks. 😍

Another order of our cloth diapers came Friday as well.
Much smaller than the first, still Bumgenius but it’s a new color so I had to order it separate from the first set.
ANNNND my wife surprised me & ordered EVERY one of the diapers we wanted from this other company.
They only had 5 of each diaper in stock so i wasn’t sure if we would get them in time.
& yes. I know it’s silly, but it’s pretty serious. Lol. -_-
These diapers are a bit more expensive than the Bumgenius 4.0 that we are mostly using (17.95 compared to 26.00)
But they’re the cutest things in the world.
We also ordered a pack of cloth wipes from Etsy to use for pee pee only!
I will FOR SURE be using regular disposable wipes for poop.
Sorry this totally isn’t becoming a cloth diaper blog.
But with how obsessed we are with them I will probably talk about them often. 🙂

We went to a baby shower Saturday. 🙂
It was my first baby shower I attended as an adult. Lol.
So being the nerd I am about this stuff I was excited.

Tuesday Domonique was off & we got the BEST treat ever.
Her grandmother is from Louisiana
& she’s for sure one of the best cooks I know. 🙂
Well her grandmother’s brother was in town (also from Louisiana)
& they made gumbo. 😍
Oh man.
Super delicious. 🙂

I give myself a manicure & pedicure every Friday.
& the bigger my tummy gets, the harder the pedicure gets. Lol.
So I may have to retire and start going to the nail shop soon.

My indigestion is just getting worse.
Or maybe it’s heartburn.
I don’t even know the difference.
Or if there is a difference.
If anybody knows of anything that will help other than medication cuz I just refuse to take ANYTHING while I’m pregnant.
Please let me know!

Domonique was able to feel our little man move last night for about five minutes straight!
He was going crazy in my tummy like he usually does at night. 🙂
I’m not sure who was more excited that she was able to feel him, her or I. Lol.
I could tell by her reaction she’s absolutely in love with him.
After she felt him she started worrying even more about him.
Asking if I was hungry and telling me to lay down & rest.
Today while we were driving she seen him kicking as well. 🙂

Our next appointment will be Friday, we can’t wait to hear our baby’s heartbeat again. 😝
I wish we could have an ultrasound too. 😦
But I won’t be a brat about it!

I CANNOT wait to receive these diapers she surprised me with. 🙂 Are they not the best looking things ever. 💚


Bumgenius 4.0 in Armadillo.


Our cloth wipes. 🙂

    Try a teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in water for heartburn/indigestion. It will make you burp but should make you feel better too!

      I will DEFINITELY be trying this as soon as I pick up some baking soda tomorrow! 🙂 Thank you!

    Cute panda diapers! I too am suffering with heartburn/indigestion…. Bleurgh! And, as a foreigner, please explain what gumbo is!

    • HER bun MY oven at 1:30 pm #

      🙂 Omg I’m sorry you have to deal with it! It’s horrible isn’t it? 😦 I’m going to try Andie’s remedy & hopefully that will do it! 🙂
      & Gumbo is kind of a soup you can really put anything you want in it.
      Her grandma used chicken,hot links,shrimp,crab,okra,& tons of veggies. & we eat it over rice.
      It’s REALLY good. 🙂

      • abridesblog at 1:35 pm #

        That sounds amazing! I’m gonna try it too as I have plenty of baking soda! I have been taking Rennie’s, don’t know whether you can get them over the pond but they’re really good 😀

      • HER bun MY oven at 1:36 pm #

        I’ll definitely check that out as well! 🙂 I’m willing to try everything. Lol.

  3. The sound of gumbo has my mouth watering and I’m not even preggers!!! How adorable are those diaperS! Loving the denim! The thing I love most about the cloth diapers is all the cool designs they come in and not just Elmo or Mickey…was just looking today and I fell in love with the Rumparooz! Probably gonna order some this week and surprise Callie…

    • HER bun MY oven at 1:41 pm #

      Do it! She will fall in love. 🙂 & yes. We really don’t like any characters for clothes/decorations or anything so we were super happy with these! The Rumparooz are super cute! The only bad thing about the Bumgenius is they don’t have many designs. : / Mostly colors but quality wise they’re supposedly really good.

      • Have u looked up the GBaby diapers? Those are pretty AWSOME too because the insert can be the disposable biodegradable ones, which is awesome! You can even compost them (wet ones only)! It’s crazy cuz I never thought u would be cloth diapering but they just make the most sense and it keeps baby’s bum nice and not rashy

      • HER bun MY oven at 1:55 pm #

        Yes! Those are cute 🙂 I look at cloth diapers like every night while Domonique works. Lol. I like the gbaby. But we’re really into the design & fit of Bumgenius… They have a line called Flip which is comparable to the gbaby. 🙂 We may end up getting some of the Flip just to have some variety. & yeah. Dom had super sensitive skin as a baby so that was also one of the factors that helped us decide to use cloth.

    Love the purchases! And the gumbo…. Has got me sooo hungry now!

    • HER bun MY oven at 7:42 am #

      Thank you! & yes the day after we ate it I was CRAVING it so badly. Lol. We had to go and pick up some to take home.

    I’m so happy for you after everything you guys have been through! Love the bum genies. Both my sister use cloth and like it, plus they’re so cute!

    • HER bun MY oven at 4:36 am #

      Yes they are super cute! 🙂 thank you!!

    Okay those diapers are just TOO cute!! I can not wait to see photos if him in them (you can even post just his lil bottom haha) how exciting! 💙

    Finally convinced my wife to allow me to blog… Now, to find the time.

    Glad to hear you’re doing well!

    • HER bun MY oven at 10:49 pm #
