Mama pad giveaway!

Hey everyone!

Sorry it's been so long since I'm blogged last! So much as been going on leaving me absolutely exhausted...as you'll see as you read on :)

Around the 10th or 11th of March, we went for a family walk on the board walk here in town and my 4 year old daughter (the one who did NOT want another brother or sister!) turns around and randomly says "Mommy! I want another baby!" I just looked up at my husband, laughed, and kept on walking!


Well, on Saturday the 20th I went to use the restroom and randomly got this feeling to take a pregnancy test! I went to grab a cheap one because my period should have been showing up any day and I didn't want to waste an expensive one on a "negative" well, I was washing my hands and just casually looked over and saw TWO lines! TWO! Ahh!



So of course, like any human being, I took another test lol I was SO excited! My heart was beating SO fast out of excitement and out of nervousness (4 kids is A LOT!)! So as I walked into the living room, I asked my husband if he was sitting down, and he was. So I proceeded to walk in with the two tests. I put them down on the end table next to him and reassured him that I was not pulling a joke (lol). His jaw dropped! He is excited too! Yay! The whole morning, I think we both we numb to the idea, but its starting to become more and more real! As we were talking about the pregnancy, I reminded my husband about what our daughter said about wanting another baby. I wonder if God was preparing her heart! RIGHT after I said that to him, I asked her if she still wanted another baby (she didn't know I was pregnant yet) and she said:

"YES Mama!! TWO babies!!"

I'm really glad I was sitting down for that! lol So, on wednesday (7th) we will have our first ultra sound and see how many babies there is! :)

Onto a different subject! For the past 6 months or so, af (aunt flo) decided to make it's return and I had decided that since I use cloth diapers on my kids, I should use cloth on myself also for aunt flo. While researching why I wanted to use cloth, I was reading testimonials of how cloth pads made womens periods shorter, less cramps, not as heavy as a flow, less infections, etc! So I decided to give it a try! Once I started using cloth pads, my periods shortened for 7 days to 3 days tops! I didn't have any cramps at all- I use to have to take Midol as often as I could to not be bent over in pain! So after seeing how well these pads worked for me, I built a huge stash of them! About 80% of my stash is from a WAHM called Pink Lemonade. Her pads are so nice and soft. They actually make me not mind when "that" time of the month comes along! 

For those of you who are not familiar with mama cloth (cloth pads), you wear them just like you would a disposable pad, and when it's time to change the pad, you put the pad in a wet bag. Once you need to wash your pads, you wash them in the washing machine and dry them like your clothes! I personally do a rinse cycle (to get everything off), then a full wash with detergent, then an extra rinse to get all the soap out. 

Pink Lemonade makes BEAUTIFUL mama cloth perfect for making you feel special during "that" time of the month! She was so gracious to offer up ONE mama pad to one of my readers! It is a 9" day pad with organic bamboo velour topped and fleece on the back (for waterproofing). 

I forgot to get a picture up of the pad that she is offering. I will try to do that tomorrow when the sun is out again. Here is a picture of one of her pads though so you can see what you'll be getting:

AAhhh!! Congratulations, Heather!!! That is so exciting! Coincidentally, I just found out that we are expecting #4 as well!! Your Nora and my Elle are just a couple days apart, we were positively shocked since AF has only visited once since then. I'm confident that God's plans are perfect and we feel so blessed, as I'm sure you do, that He has chosen to bless us with yet another child.

Now, on to the giveaway, lol! I am a follower.
