Mom hair

25 weeks today.  That's 6 weeks longer than I made it last time.

Today's achievement - I traded in long locks for Mom Hair.  My showers should be a whole lot shorter and I look like a real grown up now!

Symptom Breakdown -

  • I'm getting some skin tags under my arms.
  • Feeling kicks.
  • Because I'm sleeping on my side, I'm getting pimples behind my ears from having them smooshed against my head all night.
  • 2 kids sitting on my bladder makes me feel like I have to go all the time.  Then I get there and discover I didn't really need to go.
  • Where did these nipples come from?  My boobs are now half taken over by darkness and my nipples are trying to make a break for it all the time.
  • I'm a really light sleeper now.  I'm waking up all the time to either go to the bathroom, or to flip over.  Changing positions is a major undertaking and sometimes leaves me out of breath.
  • So far I'm 100% successful, but I'm starting to fear for my future ass wiping abilities as my stomach gets bigger and I become less agile.
  • I could wear my wedding ring, but a ring a size larger is more comfortable.  My feet are swelling pretty regularly.
  • I get full really fast.  I guess my stomach doesn't have much expanding room.  And I still never feel like I'm the right amount of full.  I feel like I have to either eat or poop all the time.
  • Starting to have trouble getting a deep breath when reclined.


  1. Love the mom hair! Looks fantastic!

  2. *love* your hair!! You look happier too, I like it :)

  3. Love the new hair cut. Oh and your face looks slimmer, possibly from you smiling so broadly? Love to see your smile!

  4. LOVE the hair! :) But why is it mom hair? ;) My hair is long, straight, and up all the time. It is the easiest mom hair around, but not flattering.

    1. It's "mom hair" because my hair is so thick that every inch adds a minute of shower time. As a mom, I'm thinking that my shower time needs as much reducing as possible! And it's "mom hair" because it's a physical transformation that I'm making specifically in preparation for having kids in the house. It's changing from "hoping" to "doing".

  5. I love the hair, pretty lady!

  6. Love, love, LOVE the hair!!!

    It's also mom hair b/c those little hands will be grabbing it and pulling at it much earlier than you would expect, so shorter is better!!! :o)

  7. I just have to stop by and comment you look goregous with your hair and a smile on your face!!


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
