Excuse the expression. And the angle. What’s it take to get a good photographer around here?! (Photo from last weekend ~ Pretty sure I was about 33 weeks. Hard to keep track with the fifth!)
I’ve made it no secret. Pregnancy is really pretty good to me. I feel icky in the first trimester, but I don’t throw up. I don’t swell. My hips hurt, and I’m way beyond sleeping well at night, but I have little to complain about, really.
Pregnancy at 37 has left me a little more tired and sluggish than earlier pregnancies. Of course, that might be the 4 children I’m already chasing or the 100°+ temps… but I have had one incredibly notable surprise. Before this pregnancy I had recently found myself plucking gray hairs at “alarming” intervals. Enough that I even considered dropping some cash for highlights (which I haven’t done since my sisters wedding 4 years ago).
It just dawned on me a few weeks ago that during pregnancy I have not noticed one gray hair! What in the world?! Is that a hormonal thing? A side effect of pregnancy? I have no idea. Maybe they’ll all come back once baby arrives? Who knows, but for now… no gray during pregnancy is a Finer Thing to be celebrated! 🙂
What Finer Things are you celebrating this week? Link up and let us know! (Did your hair change during pregnancy?)
