Scrunchy 80's hair and Acne...

I swear... by the end of this pregnancy... I could look like one of these "gals"

The things us women go through, just to have a baby! I don't know if it is the hormones or what... but my hair has gone to the dogs!

When I was little I couldn't stand these curls on my head. I thought I always looked like cousin IT. It was outragious! Then (thanks to a Catholic girl school retreat) I couldn't get enough of the curly hair. I was convinced it pretty much summed up my personality. Crazy and out of control ;-)

Now, as I sit here prego... my hair is like half straight, half curly, half 80's hair band scrunchy curly... UGH! Where will my personality be without my crazy curly hair :) Just Kidding. It just amazes me, daily, how everything in your life is turned topsy turvy.

Then to top off the perpetual bad hair day... I have acne... in the weirdest place. On my chin line. Like on my neck and my chin. It is so weird. I am giving my self au natural facials on a weekly basis and trying to exfoliate at least twice a week, but come one.

Why can't I be one of those beautiful glowing people, like my friends. They were so pretty and happy, and they didn't look like they just became prom date of the year for Ducky in Pretty and Pink.

Oh how I love being prego!

My skin went through a few bad phases, if you look in Grace's birth pics, you can see this patch of zits that had scared my face on my right check. They are gone now but just wait, the fun has just begun. When it is all said and done, you probably won't even recognize the person in the mirror, but you will have a beautiful little baby to look at instead. HA! XOXO

I think maybe you are a bit dramatic I just saw you yesterday and I saw no such acne or crazy hair.
