Hi!
My name is Lauren and I'm young mom to a wild little boy named Brody, and a sweet angel girl named Blair that we lost at 22 weeks. On my channel I talk about a variety of things ranging from motherhood and navigating life after pregnancy loss, to vlogs, recipes, and other lifestyle videos. I'd love if you subscribed and stuck around!
xox,
Lauren

  • I have poshmark...another great site is Mercari!

  • do you have the link to the amazon bodysuit??

  • Where is that denim shirt from?!? I need to know 😍

  • Could you please tell me when to take the test bc Ive had s*x on the last day of August and my period was supposed to come on the first week and till now I still haven’t got it and I feel IDK how to feel im- scared.

  • I’m 26 weeks pregnant and I still have NO idea so I’m impressed you’ve got one picked out. I know Alice is going to be in there somewhere. I’m thinking Maybe 1 Josie 2 Charlotte 3 Kinsley 3 Lennyn 4 Harlee 5 Piper

  • Kickee pants was my favorite brand for my son! Very expensive typically so you hit the jackpot 🎰 at Tj Max! This also reminded me of my mom... she went thrifting not too long ago and found 7 of the same Kickee pants brand baby blankets. They are black with grey stars all over them! She got all 7 for like $20! One of their blankets sells for $50 or more! Keep your eyes open for the stuff! So soft and comfortable for baby!

  • Am due Dec 7 but don't know the gender coz am in India

  • I’ve been having similar symptoms... I have never had pain past ovulation (specially not in just one side) and this month i did have it in my right side. My period doesn’t come until next week and i am having the worst cramps ever without a period (i even had to get of work early because it was very intense and continuous). Note that i only have had cramps and always have on one or two days before my period. Also, I’ve been having headaches and been gassy (TMI sorry). I’ve been having back pain and anxiety. I also get very hot which is weird because I’m always cold lol. The symptoms I’ve been experiencing this month are very new But i really don’t want to get my hopes up. We have been trying to conceive for a while now and i wouldn’t like to get disappointed with another negative test.

  • Definitely appreciate a baby clothes haul that doesnt end up costing 20+ for one onesie. There is a consignment shop for babies near me with 10 for 10 onesies and sleepers which is awesome.

    • Right?? I just can't get down with that price. Lol.

    • You are so sweet, thank you! We actually do have a PO box, I have it listed underneath my videos in the description box! :)

  • I have an affordable baby boutique Elias’s Journey would love for you to check us out. We offer free shipping on all domestic orders ♥️ www.eliassjourney.com

  • Can you do a baby essentials video with showing what you actually got so far? I hope you have an easy pregnancy and it doesn't become so hard on you on the last months.

    • Thank you! Yes, I plan to do a baby essentials of some sort really soon!

  • I just found out that our baby #2 will be a little girl I am so excited to buy little pink clothes and girly stuff. Currently have a little boy after a loss who is 2 years old. ! Love your video’s❤️

  • Question: tracking bbt vaginally you insert the thermometer vaginally like a tampon?

  • Hi! What is your dose for your progesterone? And is it suppository? And congrats again!

    • Oh okay! Yah I’ll see what my progesterone is! Did you have to have it check and get adjusted?

    • 200mg twice daily so 400mg total. Everyone is different though!

    • Oh so two tablets twice a day or 200mg total? I just found out I’m pregnant and the doctor only started me on 100mg twice a day=200mg total. But I just got my progesterone drawn so we will see! I two have had 2 previous miscarriages so I’m so anxious for this pregnancy

    • It was a suppository and I was taking 200mg twice a day!

  • Getting my glucose test results today...I'm sure it's all fine 😁 baby's room is looking awesome! Well done👍

  • Is it important to have sex on the day of ovulation as I've heard that sperm can live upto 3-5 days, so can we sex by skipping one day?

  • I just lost my first ever pregnancy on 8/08/19 at 12 weeks due to chromosomal abnormalities. I love that there are videos like this that express candidly the loss and hope of a miscarriage and subsequent pregnancy. My husband and I have just started TTC again though so fingers crossed! ❤️ Thank you so much for sharing your story!

  • Can’t believe your in the third trimester! You are glowing momma!

  • i think you can see when was the implantation from the temp chart

  • I’ve watched your video before but I always come back to it. I’ve now had 5 miscarriages and today is day 1 of my tww. I’m so nervous and so excited. Also now you are pregnant and I’m really happy for you

  • Congrats to you and your family is this your first baby you look absolutely stunning gorgeous what brand of diapers are going to use love pampers love your

  • Lol I'm a mess. why am I already crying and my 2 year old is starting Monday 😭😭🤦‍♀️ I'm going to ruin my make up for sure..

  • Love the wall paper on her wall and your bump is so cute we are pretty close in are pregnancy I’m 28 weeks 1 day due dec 5 with a lil girl 🎀

    • Aww congratulations I'm due December 11th also with a baby girl 🌹❤👑

  • My 3 year old is still not potty trained 😭😭 he just does not want to use the potty

  • I’m am over here balling 😭😭😭

  • i love Brody God Bless you guys

  • Definitely praying for your glucose test. Great job on the room:) <3 the video

  • I loved the part where you gestured at the wall and went “I wanna get um, like, you know what I’m talking about?” Made me smile lol

  • I always passed with the glucose test, but my last daughter I did not pass, so I had to do the 4 hour glucose test. It was crazy. Every hour had to draw blood so my arms were so bruised. She was moving like crazy on all that drink. I can not eat a double meat burger but that day I was starving. My results from that test was normal.

  • Girl we have the exact same taste! lol i bought that wreath and added flowers and made a mobile for her :)

  • I’m 28 weeks on the day you’re posting this 😊 I have had horrible pelvic pain since like week 20. I swear our boy is sitting super low or something because of the pain and I always feel kicks low versus higher up. I am having a 3D elective scan tomorrow, so I’m excited! My doctor doesn’t do scans later in the pregnancy, but said she might find a reason to do one around 32-34 weeks. It’s crazy they don’t do scans later on, but then you can have something like low fluid that they wouldn’t know about without one.

  • Hoping your glucose test came back normal!❤️ And also, your 28 week bump is so adorable!!! Ms. Darcy sure looks comfortable in there! 💕💕

  • Hello Gorgeous. Aww your bump is so darn adorable.. Praying for good results on your glucose testing ! Brody gets more handsome every time i see his sweet face. 😘 I love how Darcys room is coming together, cant wait for the nursery tour.. I love y'all so Big 💛💜💙❤😘

  • We're due 1 day apart. I'm 28 weeks tomorrow, had my glucose test today and failed now gotta do the 3 hr test. I passed the 3 hr with my first baby and passed the 1 hr glucose with my second so hopefully I dont have GD this time. It's getting more real that I'll have this baby soon 😱 Good luck on your glucose results! I'm having a girl too BTW 💖

    • KB KaliGirl I’m 28 weeks today! Good luck on your test! What was your number? I did mine over the weekend and my results were 120, so I think I am good.

  • You’re seriously so cute! Your belly is perfect! ☺️💕 I’m so excited for your family! I’m sending so many positive thoughts and love to you and baby Darcy-often.

  • I am 27 weeks ... with my first child 👶🏻 whenever I watch your video !!! I feel the same excitement as yours ❤️ ... This is my rainbow 🌈 baby

  • Her nursery looks sooo cute! I love it. She’s going to be here so soon 🥰

  • Love her room! It's turning out so cute!

  • I’m so glad someone is the exact same due date as me! I’m 28 weeks and had my glucose test yesterday. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! Fingers crossed it all comes back okay !👌🏼❤️

  • Love how the nursery is coming along! My husband is putting ours together this weekend 😍 im only afew days behind you 💖 unfortunately i had my Glucose test and failed 😔 lots of finger poking and diet adjustments for me 🙈

  • The things for the curtains are called holdbacks haha :)

  • Congrats on making it to 28wks I can't wait. Your 8wks ahead of me. FTM here & currently 20wks pregnant with my rainbow baby girl!

  • Lemon lime is good too! Tasted like a melted popcicle

  • Heartburn is a sign of alot of hair

  • Absolutely glad to hear all the good news and bump looks gorgeous.... Love ya back

  • I love how her room is coming along, I change weeks every sat. I’ll be 28 weeks and I’m sooooo behind on getting our sons stuff together 🤦🏻‍♀️ and now we’re thinking of moving next month wayyyy across the US to Michigan so how fun lol

  • Very sweet room. You look great. Congratulations and welcome to you third trimester! In the final stretch now!

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • I was just thinking about you. Loving the progress with the nursery.

  • Her room is SO precious. Such a sweet room for little Darcy. ❤️ happy for you, Lauren!

  • The nursery is looking great so far I am 23 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby and have not started nothing !😂. I need to get it together 😂

    • Brittany Olga 28 weeks with baby number one and the nursery is still currently a storage room. We haven’t bought furniture or anything 😂

    • 😂😂😂 at least I am not the only one

    • Brittany Olga 23 weeks with my second and I have a few outfits and that’s it. Nursery is just an empty room 😬

  • Biosilk is at tjmaxx and Marshall’s for half the price.

    • Felicia Marie I pay less than $10 for each bottle of it at the beauty supply store :) but yes for regular consumers it’s cheaper for them to get it there for sure!

  • I was trying to conceive for like close to a year found out I was pregnant then had a miscarriage, really heartbroken but I’m not giving up

  • Girl, you are so pretty, but those fake lashes don’t do you any favors

    • C S lol I don’t have them anymore. I was terrible about brushing them and I went too full. All natural now!🤣 thank you!

  • “People just put so much crap in their bags” ... That’s me. I’m “people.” And it just so happens that I’m waiting on this bag in the GM size to arrive. 😆

  • I am facing such same symptoms but not sure whether pregnant or not..

  • I completely understand being pregnant is a blessing from above a miracle but you do get uncomfortable and all the not so wonderful feelings and it's oki to feel that way I am currently pregnant 27 weeks went into pre turm labour at 23weeks and few days this is my 4th pregnancy 2nd one was still born at 38 weeks 3rd born at 32 weeks so with all that in mind I still complain about pregnancy even though I am very blessed and great full to be pregnant and having healthy kids

  • Will having sex everyday increase our chances.

    • For three years, my mate and her hubby made several attempts to have a baby but all useless. Their counsellors informed them on most occasions where their problem was “unknown.” My pal made a decision to buy the *ThePregnancyFact. Com* and after months of sticking to the plan, her conception was a success. To find out further particulars regarding this excellent formula, please visit Google.?

  • Thank you so much for sharing your story! As someone who has experienced a triploidy pregnancy, it is so comforting to hear from someone else who has experienced it. Sweet little Blair won't be forgotten! <3

  • My friend was not having any baby due to some hormonal problem. He tried allopathy, homeopathy and even Ayurveda, but of no use. One day he discussed this problem with me. I guided him to visit Planet Ayurveda, he visited there, consulted Dr. Vikram Chauhan, Dr. Vikram prescribed them with Female health support, Tribulus power and Atirasadi churna. His sexual problem has been resolved now and her wife is also fine now.

  • My daughter's name is Abigail everybody calls her abby (I hate it). Her name is Abigail Mae I wanted to change her name to AbiMae that's what I call her.

  • I live beachside in Brevard county, I evacuated with my three kids. I've evacuated three times in the past three years (youngest is 3). I hate it, but it's hard when you have a kid. The only people who panic are those who are new. I've lived here for about 18 years, beachside for 10-11. It is pretty scary, honestly.

  • I'm so sorry go to counseling you all, me and my wife lost a baby we are now divorced signed the papers on our anniversary, today, I'm on verge of suicide

  • Me and my wife lost a baby at 10 weeks now divorced. It was crushing for us. The ER doctor was absolutely satanic, left blood everywhere put baby in trash can. I wish we would've known I wish I would have known, we have a 2 yr old daughter I'm on the verge of suicide,

  • Love you!

  • By the way Lauren your nails are so beautiful girl & i love that color! Love you Gorgeous 💜

  • So glad y'all are safe for the most part. I agree with you, people freak out when it's totally unnecessary. But yes your right tap water, is better than not having any water. I drank tap water with all my pregnancies. It didn't effect any my children.!! Good luck to y'all. Prayers for all in the path of the storm 🙏I love y'all 💜

  • Did you talk to your doctor about the CLA supplement and breastfeeding? Assuming you’re breastfeeding, if not my apologies! I’m curious what your doctor said if there are any implications for milk production while taking CLA supplements?

    • No, because I wasn’t breastfeeding. I wouldn’t take any weight loss supplements or drinks when breastfeeding just to be cautious! X

  • I remember my mom and I went to CosmoProf and us not knowing at the time, the woman said they can't sell to the ordinary public but only to people who work at salons and stuff. And we couldn't believe it lol 😂

    • Lauren Self yeah but it was crazy bcs I never knew a store like that existed lol

    • M & A Munoz haha yes!! Definitely a perk of being a salon professional!!

  • I'm in DeLand. We got some heavy rain and some wind. Our power went out for maybe one minute and came back on. It wasn't too bad. Irma was worse. Just glad it moved and we didn't get hit too bad. Stay safe girl! 💗

    • With Irma I was living in Deltona and lost power for 12 days and it was terrible. We had no generator and we were unprepared. We went ahead and got a generator this time just in case. Thankfully, we didn't have to use it. But, hurricane season is another 2 months so if we don't use it this year I'm sure we will next. 😂 Glad yall are safe. 💗

    • Surprisingly we had power the entire time during Irma which was insane. I’m glad as well it never hit Florida directly!

  • Please keep in mind my thoughts and comments regarding hurricanes are coming from a place of living here my entire life in Central Florida. As I’ve stated- I am not coastal, but far inland, therefore we are not like those on the coast that have to take greater precautions as far as evacuation and such. I am not calling others annoying. I am not saying the storms can’t be bad. Any rude comments will be removed. Thanks!

  • I live in Oveido. The amount of chaos and panic that went down for absolutely nothing is so frustrating. But i guess i am just thankful we didnt lose power.

    • KylaKatherine same! It’s good we all kept power at least!

  • You guys should try the Pur Faucet Filter! We just bought ours at target about a week ago on sale and it's still on sale! It's super easy to use, just screws onto the faucet. So glad you guys are gonna be safe with this nasty storm! 😊

    • xlexii23x I have been wanting something like that!!

  • Stay safe 💕❤️❤️❤️

  • girl yeah the tap water should be regulated BUT its not alot of the time. Plus it has a ton of fluoride which babies are not supposed to have until theyre alot older. So please no tap water also you shouldnt be dying your hair. It can effect the baby

    • Miranda Stephens after first trimester all drs say is make sure you go to a salon first thing or in a nonbusy time or are in a well ventilated area. Other than that it's fine I had 2 high risk pregnancies and dyed my hair throughout them both after first Trimester

    • @Lauren Self oh ok i just wanted to make sure you had asked and everything! Love you girl i hope everything is doing ok there i see it pretty much missed florida but i you still got quite a bit of rain

    • Miranda Stephens if there are limited resources available and tap water is the only option- it is 100% better than no water at all. Also, my doctor has told me it’s completely fine to color my hair when pregnant. I trust my doctor 🙂

  • I live in North Carolina and people do the same thing. They over buy and gas runs out so fast. I’m somewhat inland but people still freak out. I hope you and your family stay safe. ❤️

    • Brianna Dyehouse we’ve just turned it into a long weekend at home being together! So not bad at all. Hopefully it misses y’all!

  • Glad we are in the clear, I feel for the Carolinas now. So glad the storm is dying. 💕

    • Brittany Banter same! Happy to see it keeps dropping in strength. Hoping it misses the north east coast completely 🙌🏼💛

  • Is cracking around the trim normal?

    • I’m sure it’s normal wear and tear. I’ve been wearing this bag daily for over a year and haven’t been super gentle with it.

  • I think dairy is a problem for more people than we think. I've been off dairy for awhile now and it has made me feel so much better. My energy, sleep, and skin is all healthier. I freaking love cheese, but it isn't worth how I feel. I almost turned this off when you talked about keto. I really feel like being so limited on carbs you are saying no to vegetables is excessive. I'm glad you found a happy balance between keto and paleo.

  • Great video! Really helpful TTC tips, just want to let everyone know to be super careful when taking grapefruit juice if on any other medications because it is a huge contradiction and could cause severe side effects. I also live in Orlando, thanks girl! I am definitely subscribing!

  • Who is the psychic? I’d love more information!

    • The Allen Family I’m not releasing her name for privacy reasons. X

  • My daughter is 6 years old and still pees her pants 😩 needless to say, I'm terrified to start the whole potty training process with my son. Thank you for this video!

  • I’m dying at the b hole comment 😂😂😂

  • Hey. I'm 30 minutes from you. Be safe ❤

  • “We are just going to make scrambled pancakes”😂😭💀 HAH

  • Of course enjoying pregnancy would be difficult for you. You went through a womans worst nightmare and you're mostly likely terrified of it happening again and getting comfortable with the idea of a healthy baby incase it happens all over again. I can't tell you to relax because that probably isn't even an option for you. I will remind you that sometimes beautiful miracles happen after loss. I pray for a healthy delivery and baby for your family.

  • I had a really tough time with pregnancy mentally (suffered from pre and postnatal depression) and I complained about not feeling like myself all the time. You’re allowed to feel how you feel no matter what other people’s experiences are. I can’t imagine how tough it would be to not be able to conceive but losing a child as you did far outweighs not being able to conceive in my book. I hope your anxiety gets much better and the last trimester of your pregnancy is not too hard on you xx

  • I'm so sorry you are having a hard time. Thank you for opening up to us and sharing your heart. It really helps people like me not feel so alone as I have had a similar journey. What you are feeling is real and legitimate. The fear can sneak up quickly and is sometimes so overwhelming. Also, people LOVE to judge what they can't or refuse to understand and hopefully will never experience. Keep doing what you're doing because it really is helpful.

  • “When you can feel someone kicking your butthole from the inside, it doesn’t feel good!” I AM DEAD 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Thiiiiiiiiis. 100%. Jaust because you are pregnant doesn't mean you cannot feel or experience things that arent fun, or beautiful. Pregnancy is NOT all butterflies, kisses and Angel's. It's work!!! A lot of it. You have a right to feel mama. While I am very lucky in my pregnancies, I had one loss this is 3rd pregnancy and 2nd baby (currently 35w) it's not easy, but being aware that it's okay to have days, and not be bitter if you are one of the ones that is unable to experience it. It's not anyone's fault if you're unable to carry, so please if you feel like leaving rude messages, or comments to pregnant moms who "complain" remember that it's not their fault, we need to celebrate every pregnancy. It hurts yes but it's not their fault.

  • What does Corey do? You guys have such a beautiful home!!! You are a stay home mom lol sorry for so many questions

    • I’m not a stay at home mom 🙂 I’ve been an Esthetician for 5 years and currently am specializing in volume lash extensions, Corey is a Lineman and works doing construction at the moment 💛

  • Y'all so silly and cute. Have you tried the Mott's fruit snacks, sooo good.
