chop! chop!

Posted on February 25th, 2008 by Tracey

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.

the 6 week checkup!

at 6 weeksso 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

damn you, relaxin

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
