Feeling it. 34 weeks. 6 days.

25 Oct

I am HORMONAL.
I’m already a pretty sensitive person as it is.
Nowadays I am extremely irritable.
& just about everything makes me sad/angry or hurts my feelings.
I’m sure my wife just LOVES this. -_-
Poor thing.

My wisdom teeth (all 4) have been coming in forever now.
& randomly my mouth just will hurt SUPER bad. Like tonight. 😩
On top of the never ending headaches.
Yay.

Seems like the past few days our baby boy has chilled down a bit.
It’s STRESSING me out.
I’ve contemplated going in to L&D to have him monitored but because I know he is meeting the “at least ten kicks every two hours”, I haven’t.
He still has his crazy moments.
I’m assuming/hoping it’s because of how cramped up he is getting in there.
I have started using the kick counting card given to me by the hospital though.
Just to be sure.

I LOVE being pregnant.
I really do.
Even with the terrible heartburn & headaches.
I’m even scared that I will miss my belly once he’s born. Lol.
I also like my body even more than I did pre-pregnancy. 😝
Baby bumps are just the cutest things to me.
HOWEVER, I am ready for these next few weeks to hurry along!
Every part of me hurts.
ALL. OF. THE. TIME!
& of course we are SOOO ready to meet this handsome liddo man of ours. πŸ’™

Since she doesn’t qualify for maternity leave
& everything will be totally unpaid.
We having been planning.
& HOPING that Domonique would get plenty of time off to spend with Kaimani & I once he’s born.
& we finally have everything straightened out!
She’s going to be off for about 8 weeks. ☺️😍😝
We seriously are so happy about all of that family time.

Baby bump. 34 weeks. & 3 days.

I have been a FREEEAK about what we buy for him.
Like obsessing over the registry (we used this not only for the baby shower but also for everything we personally wanted to buy him) since I was 15 weeks.
Domonique picked most of the larger items we have for him.
I wanted to share a couple of our favorite things.
Just because I am always curious about other people’s picks as well. ☺️
(These are the same colors we picked too. Except the diapers, obviously we got a bunch of colors in those. 😝)

1. Chicco Urban Stroller.
I must say I am absolutely in LOVE with this beaaaautiful thang. 😏 it’s a 3-in-1 so it can be either a car seat carrier, bassinet, or a toddler seat. (With & without leg boot.)
It can also face front or rear which we loveee.
& we have an extra color kit so we can make it gray if we’d like.

2. Chicco Keyfit 30 Magic Car seat.
So on top of being extremely adorable. It’s the number #1 ranked car seat in America. 😊 It fits in our stroller & has sure latch which makes it super easy to tighten it in the car.

3. Evenflo DLX platinum all-in-one Car seat.
This car seat also has sure latch. It has cup holders for the little man. Some of my favorite things about it is that it reclines & has a temperature regulating fabric that helps him stay comfortable & not get all sweaty! & most importantly it has some fancy type of side protection that helps reduce side impact force.

4. Graco Duetsoothe swing & rocker.
So originally we were gonna go with the mamaroo but we read/heard a lot that the baby would quickly grow out of it. So we found this which we like even more. You can use it as a full swing which like has a bunch of different levels, plays music & has a cute mobile. Or you can detach it (just pull it off) & set it on the floor as a rocker.

5. Bumgenius 4.0 cloth diapers.
I already wrote whole cloth diaper post. But yeah, we are in love with these cute little diapers. They seem to be top notch. & are nearly as convenient as disposable (other than washing,which I personally don’t mind) They’re also better for our baby’s bum. & although they’re pretty expensive upfront it will save PLENTY in the long run!

6. Bumbo & play tray.
I’m not even sure why I’m so obsessed with this little seat. It just seems like it will be really convenient. We are on the go a lot so I love that it’s something we can take with us to family/friends houses & he will have his personal little seat for feeding him snacks & stuff. It also is kinda squishy and comfy looking…SUPER cute as well. We got the play tray too which attaches on and gives him a little play/eating station.

7. Dekor plus diaper pail
Some people use regular garbage cans (works fine I’m sure) which I just didn’t wanna do for keeping cloth diapers & obviously you shouldn’t use a regular diaper genie since they have disposable plastic bags inside & you will probably end up with a super funky room. But this diaper pail is the ONLY one that I could find that has the option of purchasing a pack of two CLOTH diaper pail liners that can just be washed with the diapers. It also comes with one refill of the regular plastic liners which is perfect since we will be using disposables while he is a newborn.

8. Tommee tippee bottles
It was between these & Dr.Browns but these ones are just so much cuter. 😍 Annnd since I will be breast feeding/pumping for Dommie to feed him there’s also a lot of reviews on how these bottles are super easy to switch between breast feeding & bottle feeding. Our favorite pack we have are these colored ones. πŸ™‚ even though Domonique doesn’t want him to use the purple one. Lol.

9. Vicks starry night humidifier
Since he has an iPod for his music we weren’t too worried about the projector/sound machines. BUUUUT, we needed a humidifier as well as a projector. So this works PERFECT since it does both. There’s also an option of adding scent pads.

10. Petunia pickle bottom walkabout
I don’t plan on wearing our baby, there’s no particular reason. But Domonique does & will do it often i’m sure. So from the jump we knew we wanted to find her a nice carrier. There were like no options of cute ones. -_- they all pretty much looked the same & are super basic. The day we found out we were having a boy we went shopping. & we found this ADORABLE/boyish carrier. Of course this is our opinion but I would have to say it’s the cutest one I’ve seen, evaaa. 😝
