This time... Not so much. My hair is drab, dull and lifeless. (Used to be long blond and wavy) my face is definitely not glowing.... blek.
BUT- I lived in Hawaii for my last pregnancy and everyone said "Oh, you look so beautiful, you must be having a boy!" (which I did!)
They also told me if you're pregnant with a girl you get ugly
SO, maybe I'm having a girl- We'll see in a few days!
Still wondering if this old wives tale holds true.
I also had dark armpits and a small ass last time (also suppose to mean a boy)
Great... Girls make you ugly and give you a fat ass.
It's all worth it I guess
My hair is looking healthy, at least. But, I highlight so I wouldn't know if I've got grays, yet

I guess I look better than I feel. I do wish the zits would go away, I remember they did at some point when I was pregnant with DS, but I can't remember when.

I feel like a beached whale. My boobs are dry and itchy (regardless of how much vaseline, cocoa butter, oil and cortisone cream I put on. My stomach is bloated, my thigh seem thicker than normal and hips are little chunkier than normal. I find out tomorrow if this is a boy or girl. Lord help me!

But the thing that really freaked me out? I noticed last night that I might be starting to get varicose veins!! Now, to be fair, for all I know they could've been there before and I never noticed, but I definitely have blue pencil lines in a couple spots, like behind one knee and around the ankle. Ugh. I'm too young for this! Aren't I?
|I can't get enough of being pregnant - I must be the freak of the bunch I do have the glow, and have been blessed with skin that doesn't break out (thanks mom!)|
I am enjoying being pregnant now, but every once in a while I look in the mirror and go "ugh!"
Like this morning, when I caught a glimpse of my inner arms in the mirror... and all the dark blue veins popping out all over (I'm super-pale) -- I look like "the visible woman" anatomy doll or something.
(But I am so happy to have these small, meaningless complaints rather than the constant gagging or nausea and other travails of the first trimester!!)
Also, my thighs are rubbing together. I hate that.
honestly, i feel great and i feel/think that i look great. my skin is in great condition, nice and rosey too, and my hair is really fab (i do need a hair cut, though), and my body looks great. my waist is still tiny, and what i'm carrying is being carried up front.
i'm back to my "normal" yoga routine and my long walks--i just feel great!
of course, i hardly look pregnant, but the belly is a little bit out, and it just looks good.
oh, and i'm leaner! it's so wild!

I have curly/wavy hair that seems really limp lately. My skin is okay. My belly seems kind of big for only 17 weeks, and the other day I ate so much I was uncomfortable and felt like I was going to get stretch marks that very moment because my skin felt so tight from being full. My thighs are getting thicker, gotta look into doing some squats or something. My thighs are already a problem area for me, so I want to minimize the damage. Hee..
Back to the topic of this thread - I feel great and have gotten one comment about having that glow. I'm not really liking my hair right now though. Its gets really dark during pregnancy for some reason. I'm normally medium brown but it turns almost black at the roots during pregnancy. I don't mind that so much as I mind the bad hair days I seem to be having lately. My first was a boy and I don't remember having this complaint. This one is a girl so maybe the old wive's tale about baby girls making the mom ugly applies a little to me.

It's a little disconcerting, still, when i look at myself sideways and see all that belly there!

I think that the past few months of taking really good care of myself have really boosted my self-esteem also - no more of that late night drinking/fatty food combo that really seemed to get me (several times a week..) I wasn't truly overweight before but I think that my overall body composition is better now despite the weight gain. I have been just eating when I'm hungry and trying to stay away from sugar. Makes me feel a lot more confident that I will be able to lose the weight afterwards!!

I said "hi" to one of the ER doctors the other day, he didn't know I was pregnant, later that day he told the man that I look great and I'm "glowing." Another doctor keeps telling me I'm not pregnant and just lying. Scrubs hide a lot I tell ya!
My boobs have gone up two cup sizes which shocked me. I wear sport bras under my scrubs so when I bought a new bra my jaw dropped. I was barely an A cup so having to wear a C is....wow.
I told the man that I get my belly and boobs getting bigger but why my butt? His answer? "Your butt's getting bigger because God loves me."
