Monday Roll Call for February 18, 2019
« on: February 18, 2019 at 01:42 PM »
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. When I had visitors, a few strokes 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 all,

I'm still here, 35+1 today :) Modified bed rest since 24 weeks for short cervix with twins. Starting to realize that regardless of what happens, these babies are going to be here really soon!

I agree, I feel way better when my hair is done and when I've showered/used my favourite body lotion.  I love 'sympathy for the skin' by Lush.  Also went for a pedicure yesterday which was HUGE considering I haven't been able to reach my feet in a long time! I was kind of nervous to go but figured it was about the same amount of walking/sitting as a doctors appointment.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Lauren

Hi everyone,

I am 31+2 on modified best rest for short cervix since 28 weeks.
I find that just showering and getting dressed each day helps me to feel better about myself. I never was a makeup person to begin with!

Lauren - I’ve read your story, and what an accomplishment to make it to 35 weeks! That’s huge! I’m hoping to make it there as well.
