we'll see come another few months!
I know you're on the fence (so to speak) about a girl - and I really do understand your situation. But I really hope that even if this baby is a girl, if you are still wanting more, your DH will want more babies to snuggle and love on too!

I trick I learned from a hairdresser friend, after trying (for YEARS) to straighten my hair well with a brush while blowdrying - don't bother! Get your roots dry first of all, then go over the ends and get the hair all dry. Use a good hair straightener to achieve the smooth, straight locks. Works wonderfully, and is SO much quicker and less work than trying to do it all with the dryer and brush.

I did just get it cut the other day, so much better! I hate when it starts to get under my collar.
Have you ever tried no-poo? Or anyone here, for that matter? I'm really debating it... but I'm scared of the transition period. I've heard and read that it can be really great for curls, making them a lot less frizzy even without product. If I ever get the guts, I'm going to try it out. Not sure I'm there just yet, lol.

I kwym about no curling your hair - not for me, but my DD. She always pines for my curls, but her hair really hates curling!

AFM: So... I got my hair cut! I really like it - and my head/hair feels so much lighter. Thank goodness. I'm hoping this will help a ton with my neck/shoulder pains and headaches!
And DH and I had a nice afternoon in town alone! We didn't do anything much, other than a nice lunch just the 2 of us, but it was nice just being around with DH without the kids to watch... just for a little bit
