Happy Hump Day Lashionistas! Today is the first installation of something I like to call “Womby Wednesday.” In this series, I will blog about my feelings and experiences during this last stretch of pregnancy extending into the birth of my third child.
These last few weeks seem to be dragging on and on! At about six months, I remember thinking, “Wow! This pregnancy has flown by!” Uh…yeah…not so much anymore. Every day that I carry this bowling ball around in my gut seems to drag on just a little longer.
Yesterday, I was freaking myself out by Google searching complications due to having a large baby. My three-year-old son was born at a weight of 8 lbs 9 oz. This baby feels bigger and has caused me way more pain and discomfort. I even have a walker for the nights when the pain and pressure on my pelvis is so bad that I can’t even walk. Though, I do amuse myself with the fact that higher birthweight babies tend to have a higher I.Q. You’d better be a prodigy, Boy!
Still, I am a beauty addict at heart and there are a few things that have brightened my spirits during these heavier days. Pun intended.
- (seed) Healthy Hand Cream keeps my hands moisturized without irritating fragrance and is great when hubby needs to give my swollen mitts a massage…which is getting to be a nightly event.
- L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain is an instant pick me up on those days when mommy-hood has me feeling not-so-pretty. “Rose On and On” is my go to shade for my lips and my cheeks and instantly refreshes my face and gives me that “mommy glow” that I wish I had naturally!
- nuNAAT Leave-In Reconstructor has kept my kinks in check at a time in my life where, fixing my hair is the last thing on my mind. I’ve been letting my hair grow out long for my husband and to help cover up my fattening mommy arms so, any less time I have to spend styling it is a blessing!
Thanks for joining me for the first Womby Wednesday! I’d love to read your thoughts about my experiences or some of your own. Any Mommy knowledge is appreciated!
