It's almost noon, and I'm in my shorts, bra, and robe. No shower yet. And I love it. How about you?

I'm a stickler about getting a shower and getting dressed. We're trapped in the house until I get an 8 passenger van next month and it makes me feel more human!

I'm dressed. I have an intense need to get out of the house every single day, so I always end up dressed. I can't say I look very nice though. I usually just wear some maternity shorts and a tshirt. No makeup, hair in ponytail.

Most days, nope. Sometimes I manage to haul on clothes in the late afternoon. Yesterday I actually got a shower in the morning, but that's cause DS1 has a stomach bug and wasn't hungry - therefore no rush to get downstairs for breakfast!

I've got on underwear and my maternity jeans. Does that count as dressed? I'm topless as much as possible (or in a bra, if I'm leaking) since it makes nursing easier, and my nipples are still a little sore (Is that normal at four weeks into nursing?).

I have managed to shower every single day for the last three weeks, though. It goes a long way in making me feel like a normal person.

You didn't say I had to look NICE! I'm wearing a maternity tank top, my 'fat' shorts, no makeup and hair up in a pony as well. I look like death warmed over but at least I'm dressed!

I'm usually dressed, but it might very well be the same clothes I wore the last three days, and they're probably covered in spit up, and if I'm lucky, pee and/or a smidge of poop. I shower maybe twice a week. Make-up maybe once a week (and by make-up I mean a dusting of powder and blush). Hair in pony tail at all times ...

Mama to M (7/05) and S (5/08) my surprise !!!

Oh what a relief to read that other people don't look like supermodels yet.
My neighbour who is very sweet was back to a size 6 at 2 weeks pp and looked fabulous all the time. It has done nothing for my self esteem

i do get dressed everyday.. but i wear some variation of the same thing... this dress that i have in three colors that i think is meant to be a bathing suit cover up from the gap. it's easy access for nursing and if i put make up on and a pair of earrings (which i try to do most days)... it looks like a real outfit and it makes me feel put together and pretty

as for the showers, i have been getting one every couple days.. which i think is pretty good.

PJ's most every day here. I only get dressed if I am expecting company or if I am going out.

Oh yeah, definitely a pony tail over here too. Someone told me I should go get a nice haircut right before the baby came so I'd feel pretty afterward. I'm so glad I didn't! DS loves to grab my hair when I burp him-- pony tail is my only defense, and I would have lost it with the nice graduated bob I was going to get.

The baby and I prefer to be as naked as possible at all times. I wear underwear and he wears a diaper.

Definitely! But Sophie still manages to grab all the fine hairs at the nape of my neck and yank them out. Ouch!

I wish my hair was long enough for a ponytail. I've discovered that barely shoulder-length hair and baby don't mix. I end up with crusty spit-up in my hair at least once a day, and Sam loves to wrap his little fist all up in my hair and yank with all his might.

I and the kids have to be dressed all next week to take dd to vacation Bible school at church. If we make it all 5 days, it will be the first time since Sam was born that the three of us have been presentable more than 2 days in a row.

I have goats so I have to get some sort of clothes on every morning and night. Hehe, sometimes my neighbors see me in my brightly colored flannel pants as I go out to feed them.

I end up walking around the house allot with my boobs hanging out one way or another. Today I actually got some gardening done (weather is FINALLY nice) and even painted the ceiling of the house we are going to move into soon so I wore regular, pre-pregnancy pants for the first time in months and months.

Oh, that sounds HEAVENLY. LOVE being skin to skin with a newborn! I could just sit and smell their milk breath all day!

Am I the only one who doesn't like being skin to skin? I get so sweaty and sticky. I'm even wearing long-sleeve shirts to bed right now because my arm gets so hot and sticky from Sophie's head while she's nursing.

Diaper-stuffed tank and pj pants. But I'm going to take Toby for a walk to lunch soon so I guess I'll have to get at least decently dressed.

... or take the diaper out of my shirt.

I got in the habit of getting dressed every.single.day from driving the bus, I'm sure the kids wouldn't mind if I wore my pj's but still...not very professional

However, occasionally on weekends I would get out of bed and eat breakfast in my pj's. Then I KNOW the neighbor is going to stop by. Every time both DH and I swear that I don't lounge in my pj's all the time, it's just him!

And sure enough, the first time since my babymoon week, today I came downstairs in my pj's and ate breakfast with DH before he left for work. His apprentice leaves his truck here and they carpool to the job site. And what does DH do? INVITE HIM IN for a minute! And I'm in my pajamas! irony...irony...

DH and I - totally winging life with our four children, DS1 (6.5yrs), DS2 (5yrs), DD (3yrs) and DS3 (1)!
