    I honestly havnt taken the time really to look good at all!
    I am just so lazy! The last time I took the time and effort into doing my hair and make up was at my baby shower back in April LOL

    I just feel all crappy and blah and sleep most of the time to where I dont really feel like or taking the time to do my hair ever! plus it just recently has been so humid n hot and none of my clothes fit so what is the point in making myself look good when all I will be wearing is some sweats n a
    t- shirt !!! :dohh:

    ANyone else just dont care as much anymore ? lol maybe it's just me. :blush:


    before I was pregnant I would never go out in public without my hair being somewhat done and make up on .... but just the other night I was craving some strawberry ice cream and rushed to the store .... hair a COMPLETE MESS.... my eyes were blood shot.... i didnt have a bra on , in my pjs... and if I remember correctly i was even leaking :blush::haha: and i had no care in the world, i just wanted my ice cream!!!!!:dohh:

    I have a mixture - days when I feel like a slob and days where I really want to make an effort and look pretty for my hubby so dress up in nice clothes and put make up on/do my hair.

    I think when you're less than a week off your due date it's acceptable to go out looking a little bit messy :haha:

    I feel the same. I'm really struggling to find the energy to want to look nice. Plus I don't really have any nice clothes now, so it's useless.
    I'm used to not having the energy though, as I have two children :haha:

    i dont have any clothes that fit either and very very pointless to go buy some as I only have a week ( hopefully less ) ! so I am stuck wearing sweats n the 3 only shirts that fit me ! LOL

    I find it pointless buying maternity clothes now I haven't got that long left. Would rather spend the money on my girls or baby.
    Not long left at all for you now. WOW, could be anytime :) All the best hun xxx

    I wouldn't call it 'lazy' :) I'd say we're more 'relaxed' about how we look!!!! I've got better things to worry about than my appearance, like how to stand up without my pelvis hating me so I can get to the loo without needing my DH's help!!!! :haha:

    It depends really, if im going somewhere with DH or out with my gf's for the day i make an effort although clothes wise i've only got 1 pair of jeans that i can still wear which fit and bout 3 dresses.

    But if im popping down the shops, on go my sweats and baggy t-shirt along with no make up with hair scraped back, they should make it the law for preg women to be allowed out in pj's :haha:

    I have my ups and down days with regards to this. I usuallly try to put a bit of effort in when I go out but nothing like I used to and most of the time I just feel jiggly and gross. As I'm getting bigger, less and less is fitting and I refuse to spend much on buying new stuff so I've been trying to let my current clothes stretch out as much as possible (literally and figuritively lol).

    I normally have a good beauty routine but I have to admit I had been getting a bit like this but at the weekend we had a few social events to go too, so I had a pamper session and made myself look human again! Nice bath, wax, toe nails, hair, fake tan etc. I have to say it made me feel much better, highly recommended! Take the time to have a pamper day before you are too busy with your LO! :) x

    Yup, Id like to make more of an effort, but what with a now tiny rotation of clothes and the fact my skins looked awful & ive had bags under my eyes all the way through, I gave up trying ages ago. My hairs only grown just about 2 inch throughout the whole pregnacy too. Just another thing ill be using as a little treat come July. A nice little pamper, and I dont even mean anything huge .... but will be nice to reach my toenails for a little painting again :)
