so after a couple of weeks of finding piles of my hair in the strangest places (the freezer, for example) and seeing myself get balder everyday, i took my butt to the hairdresser and got a hair cut!
it’s a nice change, going shorter. it’s definately alot lighter, which should help the amount that falls out. i’m not totally worried about it, it’s just a normal part of having a baby (your hormones go up and down, your hair gets thicker/nicer and then it gets thinner….)
if i get any balder though, you won’t see any photos of me for a long while and i’ll begin the biggest collection of hats & beanies this side of the universe.
so after dreading it and dreading it for the past few weeks – i bit the bullet and went into my doctor for the six week checkup you’re supposed to do after having a baby.. i’m just under 6 weeks post, but i figure i’d get it over and done with
i’m pretty proud of myself for going in – i’ve always hated the pap smear, and i was so nervous about it this time around. the doc was really nice about it – and it was over in less than a minute. she also checked my ovaries and gave me my first shot of the cervical cancer vaccine, which stings!
i also weighed myself while i was there out of curiosity (we don’t like scales in our home) and i’m 4kg’s away from the first weigh in i had (at 12 weeks pregnant). i’m not bothered by it though, i don’t feel like a whale so i’m not counting the calories..
so yay! thus ends my pregnancy related appointments. next up, jasper’s first immunisation in 2 weeks time
my feet are now too big for my cute shoes
i’d been wearing my haviana‘s exclusively since… march? because it was the only shoes i found comfortable while pregnant. and now, i’m doomed to continue wearing them foreverrrrrrrr
oh well, a great excuse for some maternity-leave, pre-christmas shoe shopping!
i also can’t wear my wedding or engagement rings still – i might wait another month or so before i get them sized up
