Wow, I totally missed the chats this past week... whole lot going on here and been a busy week for me as well...
aidenn - I LOVE your haircut, it suits your face perfectly:) I'm going to jump on the same train and ask about hair as I too have thought about cutting it! It's been long my whole life, most of the time down to the bottom of my back but the past few years, just past my bra strap (mid-back). What is the reasoning some of you mentioned you'd heard about for not cutting your hair while pregnant?
I really like some of the shoulder length styles and think they'd be really nice and easy to maintain. I'm pretty lazy about styling my hair, usually just let it dry naturally, sometimes scrunch it to give it some body/slight waves (it's really thick, not naturally curly or bone straight either). Once in a while I'll take the time to curl it or use a straightener to smooth it out. So, you experienced mamas, is it easier to have longer hair to tie back in a pony or short hair? Think about breastfeeding and baby pulling hair, etc... DH & I had always talked about me getting doing something wild like getting an Amelie/Audrey Tautou cut when I got pregnant but I'm too much of a chicken now, even though I just love her hair!
Really like these styles and think I might be able to do them easy/lazy enough... thoughts?
letniaLynne - did you find a dress yesterday? And, hope that the house showing went well:)
lilmamita - fingers crossed that the travel plans come together soon!
KaliHeKate - I feel huge as well, so stretched, tight and ready to pop. It's hard to imagine that we can get any bigger isn't it! Glad your house sitting is over, we too have been house sitting - for my parents (gone for a month), will be back Wednesday, yippee! They have 3 cats (2 get along and they don't like the 3rd, so they live in separate quarters) and that has been a pain in the butt and driving over to their house every day to hang out with them separately, etc... Our cats and dogs are feeling a little neglected with everything we have going on right now and I am just burned out and ready for a break.
About your motorhome, that is awesome! We decided 6 years ago to get a rig and travel. We initially got a fifth wheel and traveled a lot, no home base other than staying with our parents for a month or 2 here and there. It was awesome, spent a lot of time in Mexico (and still do). We switched to a small motorhome to see if that would work better for travel (more specifically in Mexico) and it definitely has its perks, but are switching back to the 5th wheel (especially with baby coming). The 22 ft motorhome is just too small for cats, dogs, us + baby, we'll all be better off in the 5th wheel situation. We (temporarily) settled back down to start a family and currently have a home base but plan/hope to work out a balance of travel 6 months (during winter/spring) and stay here in the good weather (summer/fall). It will be interesting though as I'm not sure how I'll feel about traveling with a newborn, probably won't be able to work out the 6 and 6 as hoped at least in the first year... I could go on and on about RVing... feel free to PM me if you have any questions:D Good luck, the freedom to travel is amazing! Enjoy!!
