Happy Birthday To Me

So today is my 29th Birthday.. for some this means nothing.. for me it means my last year in my 20's!! I mean how sad is that? My 20's were on heck of a decade.

Let's see. At 20 I had an amazing job was in an adult relationship, met some of my bestest friends. Lived on my own & learned what adult responsibilities are.
21 was one crazy year full of legal drinking in bars, heart ache, job changes & new experianes.
By 22 I was over the bad relationships, moved to Florida to be with my family, went through some crazy parting & had many job changes.
23 was a year that I realized that parting is not always as fun as it once seemed, boys are still mean & that my heart belongs on the west coast.
At 24 I was a work a holic at an amazing company, closed off & over the desert so I moved to Oregon which meant new friendships, new relationships & learning what it was like to be unemployed & broke.
25 was a year of illness, heartache, lost friendships & depression.. a year that was not so great for me.
By 26 I was over the drama, over the tears & learned what it was like to live & have real love in my life. Found the man I was going to marry & learned I was going to be a mom.
When I turned 27 I was married to the most amazing man, became a mommy & my heart was content.
At 28 we moved to the most amazing city, started a new & started trying for baby #2.
Now 29 my last year in my twenties, so far I know we are expecting our second baby YAY, Shiloh is growing up faster then I'd like, we live in a cute town in a cute home, friendships have been mended & married life is more amazing then it was 2 years ago.

So lets see how the last year of my 20's plays out & how my 30's treat me.. I am sure its just going to get better & better so stay tuned :-)

Oh The Joy's Of Pregnancy

So up until the last few days I was feeling pretty good aside from being tired exhausted.. then the nausea kicked in. I thought I was going to have a smooth sailing pregnancy this time around which was leading me to believe it was a BOY. I mean with all the cravings I have been having it has made it interesting since I never had them with Shiloh. But now that nausea has joined me I am starting to think GIRL.

I am so exhausted.. it doesn't matter if I sleep 8 hours or 12 hours a night I am still so tired the next day. I can nap during the day & be in bed by 9pm & still exhausted. I have zero energy & no idea how to handle it. When I was pregnant with Shiloh even though I was sick I was still a clean freak... I would clean get sick nap then wake up & clean some more. I couldn't handle the house being a mess & seeing it a mess made me sick. With this pregnancy my house looks like a daycare is run out of it & the laundry is everywhere.. I have ZERO energy to pick up toys, fold laundry, do laundry, put dishes away, clean dishes & cooking well it only gets done because we have to eat & well eating makes me feel a little better. But we have had hamburger helper nights more often now & I have my hubby make that LOL. I can't stand my house being a mess its actually depressing me.. my husband doesn't want me to clean with cleaning products so the bathrooms are so gross {I can't get mad at Stephen either because he already does so much} I just feel so helpless.. I try to get up the motivation to clean & I either get dizzy or I am so tired I can't do it.

The last few days I have been getting pretty nauseous.. well today its full effect! I can't do anything.. I am at the point where I just wish I could get sick so I would feel some what better but then I know after that I will want to sleep & well my child & napping when she is not ready is a nightmare. It seems as long as I drink water, lay down or stuff my face I am okay.. but its hard when you have a toddler who wants to play & I just don't have the energy to. Also eating has become a challenge because I have to eat small portions & I tend to forget & stuff my face & then I am so full I am sick & can't sleep, I can't even eat the normal size helpings I would when I wasn't pregnant & that to me makes me think TWINS because they say with twins your are completely exhausted from your body having to do double the work & that your appetite is huge but that you can't eat as much because you don't have as much room since there are two babies in the belly. I hope this ends soon so that our lives aren't too crazy the next 7 or 8 months.. but if not oh well.. its all worth it to have another baby {s} & to give Shiloh a sibling. So I am going to cross my fingers this won't last my entire pregnancy like it did with Shiloh.

Here is my bump as of May 23rd I am still not sure how far along I am so I am just going to say 6 or 7 weeks.. its still growing fast.. but I am still at the "is she getting fat or is she pregnant stage"

Discount Tire Company Picnic 2010

Every year my husbands company has a picnic.. the past few years it has been at Bullwinkles. Last year Shiloh was still a little too young but this year she had so much fun with her friends & cousin's. Here are some pictures:

She had so much fun. Once we put her in her seat & headed home she was passed out within minutes.

Things I Have To Avoid

So I know its only been a few years since I had Shiloh but I feel like I have forgotten so much in this time of things I CAN'T do while pregnant.. & there I things I never new as well. I am reading up on all of this since I am feeling so great with this pregnancy & can eat much more & can actually get out and do things since I am not so sick & have to stay in bed.

Here is a list of foods you can't have while pregnant from WebMD:

  • Swordfish, shark, tilefish, king mackerel, limit canned albacore tuna fish. These large fish harbor higher levels of methylymercury, a metal detrimental to a growing child's brain and nervous system. Pregnant and nursing women may safely eat up to 6 ounces of albacore ("white') tuna fish as part of their weekly total limit of 12 ounces of seafood low in mercury, says the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This also includes salmon, shrimp, canned light tuna, pollock, and catfish.
  • Fish caught in rivers, lakes, streams, or any other body of water. Recreational anglers may hook fish contaminated with bacteria or chemicals. Check the safety of fish from your favorite fishing grounds with your local health department.
  • Raw or undercooked meat, poultry, seafood (like raw oysters, clams, sushi), and eggs (including eggs in cookie dough and cake batter). Undercooked animal foods may contain a variety of bacteria and viruses. Use a meat thermometer to determine doneness of meat and poultry, and cook eggs until they are no longer runny.
  • Hot dogs and luncheon meats, including deli ham, turkey, bologna, and salami -- unless they have been reheated until steaming hot. These foods are prone to Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that causes listeriosis, which may result in miscarriage, stillbirth, or other serious health problems.
  • Unpasteurized dairy foods, including some milk and certain cheeses, such as Brie, feta, Camembert, Roquefort, blue-veined, "queso blanco," "queso fresco," and Panela; refrigerated pates or meat spreads; and refrigerated smoked seafood, such as salmon, trout, whitefish, cod, tuna, or mackerel (most often labeled as "nova-style," "lox," "kippered," "smoked," or "jerky"). These foods may contain harmful levels of listeria bacteria. Refrigerated smoked seafood is safe when it's part of a cooked dish, like casseroles.
  • Unpasteurized juices, such as cider purchased from roadside stands, at farms, or in stores. These products are prone to germs, including E. coli. Check the label to be sure juice is pasteurized.
  • Raw vegetable sprouts, including alfalfa, clover, radish, and mung bean. The FDA says sprouts are not a good idea for anyone, never mind pregnant women who are more susceptible to the health effects of the germs sprouts possess.
  • Herbal supplements and teas. Herbs are natural, but herbal products have not been studied enough to recommend them during pregnancy.
  • Alcohol. Beer, wine, and spirits rob developing cells of oxygen, making normal development impossible. The effects of alcohol on intellectual prowess are irreparable. According to the March of Dimes, there is no known safe level for alcohol consumption in pregnancy.
  • Tap water in undeveloped countries. Drink bottled water to avoid bacteria and viruses.
  • Certain foods that cause food allergy. Depending on your family history, your child may be at risk for developing food allergies. Avoiding foods including peanuts and peanut products during pregnancy (and nursing) may reduce allergy risk in susceptible children. Before you make any changes to your diet, speak with a licensed health care professional about your child's risk for allergy and consult with a registered dietitian knowledgeable about food allergy.

So I knew most of these but I had no clue Deli Meat was out.. which stinks because I have been craving Roast Beef Sandwiches like no other.

Here are activities I have to avoid now from BabyCenter:

Amusement park rides: Waterslides and other rides at amusement parks are a no-no, since a forceful landing or sudden start or stop could harm your baby.

Bicycling: Cycling isn't a good idea for newbies, but experienced riders may be able to continue until their second trimester, when a shifting center of gravity affects balance and can make cycling dangerous.

Contact sports: Soccer, basketball, and hockey put you at a high risk of injury from a ball or puck, a collision with another player, or a fall during play.

Downhill skiing: ACOG advises against downhill skiing anytime during pregnancy because of the risk of serious injuries and hard falls. If you choose to ski, stick to gentle slopes and be aware that you may have problems with balance as your belly expands. A safer choice is cross-country skiing, which is also much better for building cardiovascular fitness. Avoid skiing at altitudes above 6,000 feet, where there's less oxygen for you and your baby.

Gymnastics: Same risk of falling and increased chance of trauma to your abdomen.

Horseback riding: Even if you're a good rider, it's not worth risking a fall.

Post-sport tubs and saunas: Soaking in hot tubs and Jacuzzis or sitting in a sauna can be dangerous to your developing baby because overheating has been linked to birth defects.

Running: If you weren't a runner before you got pregnant, now's not the time to take it up. Otherwise, it's fine in moderation. From your second trimester on, when the risk of falling increases, you should run with caution. As with all forms of exercise, avoid becoming overheated, and drink plenty of water to replace fluids lost through sweating.

Scuba diving: This is an absolute no. As you surface, air bubbles can form in your bloodstream, which can be very dangerous for both you and your growing baby.

Snowboarding: Same risk of falling and increased chance of trauma to your abdomen.

Surfing: Same risk of falling and increased chance of trauma to your abdomen.

Tennis: A moderately paced game of tennis is okay if you played before you became pregnant. But you may have problems with balance and sudden stops, so watch your step. Most women find that it's hard to keep up their game as their bellies get bigger in the second and third trimesters.

Waterskiing: Another activity that puts you at risk for falling and increases the chance of trauma to your abdomen.

Good thing I don't plan on doing any of these activities any time soon.. how ever I never thought Tennis would be a bad thing.

I am not much of a Medicine taker but its nice to know what I can take since I thought all I was able to take was Tylenol.

Enviroments to Avoid from eHow:

*Cigarette Smoke. If you smoke, stop. Ask others not to smoke around you. Inhaling passive smoke is almost as harmful as smoking yourself.
* Lead: Stay away from lead paint, especially if repair work is being done or the paint is chipping off. You should be concerned if your house was built before 1978. Most companies stopped putting lead in paint in 1955, and the federal government banned lead in paint in 1978.
Make sure the tap water you drink is lead free. Check with your local environmental group or the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). If you suspect that the water may not be safe, get it tested for lead and contaminants by the EPA or get more information from the Health Department. Use only cold water for drinking and cooking. If your plumbing is very old or contains lead, consider changing it. Always run the tap for a few minutes before filling your glass, especially if the tap has not been used for a few hours.
* Manufacturing agents and chemicals: Those working in manufacturing or on a factory floor should avoid certain things when pregnant, as specified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. These include chemicals like alkylating agents, arsenic, benzene, carbon monoxide, chlorinated hydrocarbons, dimethyl sulfoxide, organic mercury compounds, lead, lithium, aluminum, ethylene oxide, dioxin and polychlorinated biphenyls.
* Cleaning agents and strong fumes: There is no proven link between household cleaners and pregnancy complications, but it is better to use these with extra caution when pregnant since they contain very strong chemicals and emit unpleasant odors. Use rubber gloves. Do not use toxic cleaners such as oven cleaners. Avoid inhaling the fumes directly by covering your nose while spraying. Make sure the rooms you clean are well ventilated.
* Continuous In-flight Radiation, especially at high altitudes, closer to the earth's poles: This is applicable to women working as pilots or flight crew members. It has been observed that those who often fly for long hours at very high altitudes, close to the poles are at a risk of exposure to solar radiation. Though the risk may be small, pregnant women are advised to avoid it.
* Mercury-rich Fish: Though fish is considered one of the healthiest types of foods, pregnant women should avoid seafood with high mercury content. Shark, swordfish, King mackerel, tile fish are especially to be avoided. Similarly, raw fish could contain bacteria and parasites and should be avoided.
*Microwave radiation: Although the benefits of the microwave far outweigh any risks it might pose, studies show that the fetus is especially vulnerable to being affected adversely. So, while you don't have to stop using the microwave, you should take some precautions while using it. Make sure the microwave has no leaks. Do not stand in front of the microwave or very close to it while it runs.
* Air Pollution: Avoid or reduce the inhalation of polluted air and exhaust fumes. Keep your rooms well-ventilated, especially the ones with fireplaces, burners or stoves.
* Paint fumes: Although lead based paints are no longer used, paint fumes are best avoided. Some paints have been shown to have unsafe amounts of mercury and other substances.
* Noise: Continuous exposure to loud noise has been known to cause miscarriages in animals. There is no study to prove a similar correlation in humans, but it is known that continuous exposure to loud noise causes hearing loss. So, to be on the safer side, pregnant women might want to avoid working in an environment that is too noisy all the time.

Some of these things make me feel like I should lock myself in my house LOL others are understandable I just wish people who are not pregnant could understand. 

Helpful ways to have a stress free healthy pregnancy from Women's Health Care Topic's:

  1. Eat a healthy, well balanced diet. Eating well will provide you the energy you need to get through the day, especially when you feel tired or overworked. The more junk food you eat the more stressed your body will be. Your body needs ample nutrients to cope with daily stress.
  2. Get plenty of sleep. The less sleep you get the more stressed you are likely to be. If you find you are having trouble sleeping invest in a comfortable body pillow, some new sheets and even a white noise machine to help block out outside noises and help promote more restful sleep. You may find it helpful to take a relaxing bath before bed. Also avoid eating up to one hour before bed to prevent heartburn, which can disrupt your sleep and increase your level of stress.
  3. Exercise regularly. Exercise is an ideal way to help cope with daily stressors. It will also leave you feeling more energetic and ready to tackle the day's challenges. Some women find that exercising after work helps provide them the time they need to wind down and distress from their day at work. Exercise can also help ease labor and alleviate some of the anxiety associated with the upcoming labor and delivery.
  4. Try some natural stress reduction techniques including biofeedback, yoga or meditation. Each of these methods is a non interventionist way to help you focus, identify stressors and release stress in a healthy, safe and energy producing manner.
  5. Talk regularly with your partner. Your partner can help you work through your anxiety and help comfort you in times of high stress. By communicating regularly and openly with your partner you are bound to feel more prepared to deal with the challenges each day will bring.
  6. Reduce your workload. If you find you are doing too much in a day find ways to delegate certain tasks to others. Carrying a baby for nine months is a lot of work. You should expect that those around you will be willing to take on more responsibility to help you out in your time of need.
I know that I am a stress cass anxiety crazy lady while pregnant  I am trying to not be with this pregnancy so its nice to be given was to reduce this.

Growing Belly

So as you all have heard we are FINALLY pregnant!! YAY after a year & A half of trying, tears, fear, fertility & frustration our prayers have been answered. We are still so excited & over joyed with this news & we can't wait to meet this new bean!

I have to tell you though I am a little lost when it comes to figuring out how far a long I am & its driving me a bit crazy!!! With Shiloh my doctor told me right away that I was barely 4 weeks with her when I had my blood test. But with this one they haven't told me & I don't have my first ultra sound until June 9th. For me that feels like forever away!!

Since March I have had a feeling I was pregnant.. you sometimes you just know. But I swear I took about 4 or 5 HPT & they were all negative! So I was like man it must just be me wanted it so bad now that I am just thinking I am. Then in April I had a visit from Auntie Flow, but now I am thinking it was not her visiting at all. Maybe I am actually further a long then we thought.. instead of 6 weeks along I could be 12 weeks along. I know that is a big jump but my cycle is very weird.

I just feel like I am really big for only being 6 weeks. I know they say with your second you show a lot sooner.. but I already have a bump & its not one I can really hide anymore! I mean maybe its twins but even then am I already suppose to be showing? I just want to know LOL

Here is the BIG BELLY

I am one of those people that while pregnant I am very organized, I have everything planned out & set within the first trimester & I am crazy with anxiety!! So this not knowing if I am due in November or January is killing me. Also not knowing if it is twins is as well.. I am so not good at having patients when it comes to baby LOL I wanna know now I don't want to wait & when it comes to the sex I wish you knew right away because it seems to take for ever to get to the 18th week to know!

Other then me feeling huge, I am actually feeling really good. I am still adjusting to being tired all the time but other then that no sickness or feeling nauseous {unless in the car} since March & the dizziness only appears when I need to eat or fluids. Eating & smells aren't an issue with this pregnancy either.. I want to eat EVERYTHING & I do LOL! With Shiloh I was only able to eat fruit, veggies & cheese burgers from McDonald's & if Stephen was going to cook I had to have him open all the windows & I had to shut myself in our room. I am using the bathroom a LOT & that gets frustrating at night because already I am having a hard time sleeping & getting comfy so it seems like once I am comfy I have to run to the bathroom. Emotionally I feel good, I am super sensitive though & I have purposely been avoiding anyone who is negative because I don't want to have any stress in this pregnancy like I did with Shiloh. I find that watching anything that is the least bit sad brings me to tears & even balling like a baby LOL & I am back & forth on certain things that I normally wouldn't be that way with. My tata's don't seem bigger just full & they are finally not hurting anymore.. well not like they were.

So with this pregnancy we are off to a good start.. I can't wait for June 9th to find out how far a long I am & if there is one or two beans in the belly. I think we are set on our names & we are already making a list of things we are going to need when baby comes!

I will try & post as often as I can with this pregnancy so I have a journal to reflect on later & so all of you can hear about my progress.. so stay tuned for more Baby Flores News to come!

Flores Family Vacation

So Shiloh, Stephen & I took a week to get away & celebrate us. We left on Mother's Day & drove east to Lake Chelan Washington. The drive was long & we actually ended up going to wrong way thanks to our lovely navigation the really needs to be updated. But we brushed off the frustration & finally arrived to our timeshare.

We went swimming {I tried twice but it made me sea sick} in the indoor pool since their outdoor pools where still closed, shopped in the cut town, went to a few winery's & just relaxed & enjoyed each others company.

I have to tell you though next time we decided to vacation over there we need to go in summer {June or July months} or winter. May just has nothing going on so towards the last few days we were going a little stir crazy. But all in all it was so nice to get away & take sometime to spend together before all the craziness stats with Mary Kay, Stephen's work events, Family events & visits from out of town & the BABY #2!!

Here are some pictures from our Vacation I hope you Enjoy!

Our 2 Year Anniversary

I don't want anyone thinking that I wasn't happy to celebrate our
Two Year Anniversary 
because I am. I just didn't blog about it because well I wanted to share what we did to Celebrate this year. Our Anniversary was on Monday May 10th.. two years ago on that day we said our "I Do's" & we became one. I love him more & more each minute that passes. I don't think their is another man out there meant for me. I love that we can laugh, cry & share so much together. He is truly my Best Friend & the greatest husband & father I know. I love my husband so so much & I love that we get to spend the rest of our lives together!

I will blog more about what we have been up to this week to celebrate our Anniversary on Monday May 17th. For now just know the three of us are enjoying each other & planning for our new addition to come in the near future❤

Momma's Pixie Dreams Little Monkey

Mamma's Pixie Dreams is a blog I have been following for some time now.. on May 7th her Little Monkey was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. My heart ache's for this little baby & her family. This is a parents worst nightmare to have to hear your baby is sick. Please send prayers & thoughts to this family & to the this adorable Little Monkey.

Baby Name Help

So I know its early on in my pregnancy {or maybe not will know more June 9th} but Stephen & I are going through names. We have a ton of names but now that the baby is on their way now we are trying to seal the name in stone :-) We are still unsure if we are having a girl or boy or maybe even twins.. so we want to hear some of the names other people love.

Now this is going to be harder then you think. We named our Daughter Shiloh Rose Flores which means:
Shiloh: His Gift
Rose: From the Cherryblossom
Flores: Flowers

So this baby has to match up with that. The name has to have a good meaning & be unique.. nothing dark or that means park or tree bark LOL. We need it to flow as well & it can't be a name that is too powerful.. we don't want them to carry the weight of a big name. So here are the names we have so far:

 Our Boy names:
  1.  Brennen- Prince
  2. Dominic- Lord
  3. Gabriel- God is my strength
  4. Austin- Helpful
  5. Christian- follower of Christ
  6. Isaiah- God is salvation
Our Girl names:
  1. Adalyn- Noble kind
  2. Jocelyn- Joyous
  3. Makayla- Who resembles God
  4. Gabriella- Devoted to God
  5. Brynlee- Radiant
  6. Zooey- Life
  7. Phoebe- Bright radiant
The middle name for a boy would be Matthew & Girl would be Elaine or Nicole {depending on the name we choose}.

If we have twins here are the names we have for them:

Boy Twins:
  1. Austin & Alexander
  2. Brennen & Blake
None of these names are sticking like we want though

Girl Twins:
  1. Adalyn & Jocelyn
  2. Phoebe & Zooey
  3. Phoebe & Payton
We love all these one but don't know which to choose

Boy & Girl Twins:
  1. Adalyn & Austin
  2. Jocelyn & Jacob
  3. Brennen & Brynlee
So here they are.. tell us what you think & give us your suggestions :-)

Baby Flores #2

On a drive we were taking on Sunday, Stephen & I got to talking about Baby Flores #2 & I have come to the conclusion that I may be further a long then we thought & here is why:

Back in March I started to get super tired, crazy & not so crazy cravings, peeing very often way more then normal, putting on a little extra weight, nauseous & more recently dizzy. In April right around the time my menstrual cycle was due I started spotting I thought humm this is odd.. the second day it was a little heavier but not by much & then by day four it was almost gone & that is when I started the fertility & then on day five it was gone.. I thought it was due to the fertility but now I am thinking it was implantation bleeding. If that be the case that would put me at 11 weeks prego.. which is crazy to me because the nauseousness didn't last very long & I actually feel pretty good and the only thing that reminds me that I am prego are constantly being super tired, cravings , extremely sore tatas & the bump that is visible. So if I am not that far along then there is a really good possibility it is twins since I am already pooping out.

As of now the pregnancy has been treating me well. I can actually take my prenatal vitamins & not get sick.. with Shiloh I had to switch to Flintstone Gummies & I could not keep a thing down except fruits, veggies & McDonald's. With this little Turkey I am able to eat EVERYTHING & I am loving it! I am having a hard time getting comfy & the closterfobic feeling has begun as well so I thinking because of that I am even more tired. I am still having dizzy spells from time to time & that is not fun but manageable now. But other then that I feel great.. I have the normal changes going on that come with pregnancy but nothing I can't handle. So its pretty nice.

I have my first Ultra Sound on June 9th so at that point we can see if there are two viable sacks or just one.. & if I am as far along as I think we are I may even find out the sex at that point too. I do however plan on calling the doctor tomorrow to see if I should come in sooner because I have to make sure to get the RhoGam shot because I am RH negative & I can't miss that.

We are still over joyed with excitement & feel so blessed to have this new life we have created growing in my belly. We are practicing names with Shiloh & getting her ready to be a big sister. I feel like a million pounds have been lifted off my shoulders & I no longer have to stress about having at least one more baby.. because our wish has come true.

Top 2 Tuesday

Top 2 Dream Houses

1.  I would love to have cozy one story home on a mature lot with a garden like feel. It would just be nice to not have to worry about stairs & baby gates.. so that is my #1 dream home.
