Monday Roll Call for February 19, 2018: Lookin' good, mamas!
« on: February 19, 2018 at 11:51 AM »
Hello, ladies!

How do you look? I know it may seem silly to get dressed or put on makeup to sit around the house, but you might find that it boosts your spirits! It was really tough to style my hair with no mirror, but I still found it relaxing to brush and blowdry my hair. And when I had visitors, a quick stroke of lipstick seemed to help me feel like myself again. And don't underestimate the power of a body lotion in your favorite scent.  :)

What are YOUR beauty tips for bedrest? Do you feel like your appearance can have an effect on your mood? Feel free to offer your thoughts, or just let us know what's new and how many weeks along you are.

Keep 'em cookin', mamas!

Hi,

Somehow I'm still here cooking at 14 weeks now. 10 more to viability.

I'm usually a no-makeup hippy kind of mama anyway, so that's a pretty easy schedule to maintain while I'm on bedrest  ;) I also think it helps to look less than fabulous at home too to help my husband cope with the no sex for a long long long time thing.

I do however put some light makeup on for hospital bedrest. I find it helps drs and nurses take me more seriously if I look like I'm pulled-together and coping and able to be an active participant in my care.
