#100DaysOfHappy, Day 21. They say important things always happen when your nails are wet. Well, in an attempt to encourage labor, I painted my nails and the only thing that happened was the urge to visit the potty. ๐Ÿ˜•

Well, no signs of labor but my once E.T. looking fingers are cute. I cut them all off because 3 of them broke off. The color is “Sea Gurl” by Orly. I’m a huge fan of metallics. ๐Ÿ’…

#100DaysOfHappy, Day 20! Well, will ya lookie here! I shampooed and conditioned my straight hair and it reverted back (not that I didn’t think it would). It only took me about an hour from start to finish. I didn’t detangle whilst in the shower, but did detangle before putting in these jumbo braids. I didn’t lose much hair. Matter of fact, my hair hasn’t shed much since having the #pregnits.

I decided I needed to tame my hair because I’m currently telling my mini boo that she needs to take her belongings and get out of my midsection. ๐Ÿ˜ค I don’t think it would be a good idea to roll up in labor and delivery with my hair all out and stuff. ๐Ÿ˜จ

#100DaysOfHappy, Day 19! Why does food bring me such happiness? ๐Ÿ˜‹ After I finish this bowl of popcorn and orange, banana,  flaxseed and oatmeal smoothie, I’m going to take a walk to the river…at least that’s the plan. Lord knows, I need some exercise. 

I’ve been sleeping almost all day. ๐Ÿ˜ง I hope you guys are enjoying your Saturday!!!

#TBT Okay, last one. The top picture (15 April 14, 22 weeks + 4) is my mini boo giving the bird. Yeah, I know she wasn’t really flipping us off but it provided comic relief. We were at a level 2 ultrasound appointment because my doctor found a cyst on her brain. To say that I was worried was an understatement AND she was not being cooperative (and flipping us off…๐Ÿ˜‘) so they couldn’t really monitor it. We had to come back. I was a wreck. 

The bottom photo (13 May 14, 26 weeks + 4) was a follow-up appointment with the level 2 ultrasound people to check on her cyst. We found out that she was super jiggly with a pot belly and in the 79th percentile with a big ol head. Her cyst resolved itself and all was well. 


I know it’s hard to stay positive when you’re dealing with complications. Seek support from your family and friends (my team is awesome). Rebuke that negative self talk. Seriously, tell that voice to shut the hell up and leave you alone. Take it day by day and pray! Okay, that’s it. I’m all tore up.

#TBT I’m currently in my feelings. This is a snapshot of our mini boo. This photo was taken on 17 Jan 14 (11 weeks + 2). I was still hemorrhaging at this point and I was terrified because there were so many unknowns. Well not only was she doing fine, but our rainbow baby was giving us a fist bumb. Lol

Thank God for my wonderful husband because he kept me from going off on the deep end plenty of days, nights, afternoons… He always knew that things were okay. The struggle has been real but we’re almost there! ๐Ÿ’ž If you’re in a similar situation, hang on in there. It will get better.

Throwback #naturalhair style that I’m about to recreate. I just two strand twisted my hair and threw in a few bantu knots and flexirods to give it some curls. I have a YouTube video on how do this style. I don’t remember the number but you can search for it.

I get to put her and all her belongings out in 2 weeks! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ She might not leave tho. ๐Ÿ˜ข But I’m going to ask nicely. ๐Ÿ˜‘


My rainbow mini boo and I made it this far and for that I am beyond thankful but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t tired.
So. 
Very. 
Tired. 


This hospital bathroom selfie was taken shortly before having a meltdown in the parking lot because I thought someone stole my car. I forget where I parked. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜’
