Hey ladies, Just stopping in. Its been a beautiful weekend in Seattle so we have been out and about making the most of it - we don't get sunshine very often so it's a big deal. Its actually hilarious that the temps are in the upper 50's and people are in shorts and t-shirts, convertibles with their tops down, the whole shabang! ha ha! We take what we can get.
Anyway, I posted a new belly pic on my blog so I thought I would post a link here so you can see. Certainly popping now!
Croy- love the pics! I didn't know you had a blog, it's great, need to bookmark it
Mom2- that storm made its way up here, had tornado watch and the news made a huge deal about it and them the news said it was either missing us or just going away, so we just got pouring rain and a little hail.
Thanks fluffy! Your LO is adorable!
Kat- never been a person to get sore nips, just boobs, but I've heard of many girls getting them, it's a good sign!
Jenny- Hope you feel better
Croy- Love your bump and you look soo happy too!
Kat- I have the sore nips! Lol They used to get sore before my AF and I also get them along with the generally tender all over boobs when pregnant. I also have somewhat inverted nips, so I wonder if that has something to do with it? I don't have the fully innie kind, but they sometimes invert and sometimes are out like normal nips...I think this makes mine more sensitive than "normal" nips.
I'm starting to feel really gross...did anyone else get this way??? Being pregnant has thrown a serious wrench into my beauty regime and now I'm gaining weight and my skin is breaking out really bad. I have a ton of blemsihes right now Also:
I can't dye my hair, grey roots popping in all over the place
I'm afraid to sunbathe, so I got this pasty ass white skin
I can't use any of the good shit on these zits like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide so they're just getting worse
I can't get a mani/pedi because I'm afraid of the salon fumes :/
I usually use whitening gel from my dental office on my teeth every 3-4 months and can't use that either
And I got this fat ass, bloated look going on!
That's my rant for the day...just having one of those days where I look in the mirror and go "ugh, blech!" I think the acne is mostly what is affecting my self-esteem :/
Tucks, I think that if you go to a salon and have someone else paint your nails it isn't so bad. Or maybe have someone come to your house where you can open the window and ventilate better? You deserve something to make you feel nice
I had bad skin during first tri but it did clear up and since then I've felt great! Of course I am expecting things to turn bad again any minute now
Kat, your breasts need to set up the milk factory for later so there are bound to be goings on there that you can feel - good stuff
Tuckie- I can sympathize really... All the progesterone has made me a greasy mess- hair, skin and it's driving me mad. Plus I feel like a lump not exercising. I did go for a mani-pedi though, my doctor said it's fine as long as the place is reasonably well-ventilated. I also spent the weekend giving myself home spa treatments to try to counteract all the pregnancy slime. Get some organic spa products and do a facial at home. Tea-tree oil may help with the acne. I know it's frustrating now, but it will all be worth it in the end!
Morning hope your all doing fab and glowing with your big bellies!!!
Motherhood and work really does take up every spare second so don't get nearly as much time to pop on. I'm breast pumping as I write lol... Ethan is great but seriously enjoy every second of sleep u can get, it's hard getting up every few hours.
So great to see most of u past half way now. Can't wait to see birth stories next - xxxxxx
