More belly, new hair

I needed to have my hair cut. It had been since last May - when I chattered on about my hair for quite a while. There's a wedding coming up and good hair days were becoming hit or miss, rather than the general rule. So there's less hair, more layers, a trimmed fringe (bangs for you Americans), and a lot of color. I used my hilighting Christmas present kit (Thanks Christina!) and had a time of it getting all the strands pulled through the cap. About 2 hours worth of it... but that's okay! Because the finished produce was awesome! I was a bit scared when I realised the color had colored very FAST (15-20 min) and I was worried I'd be a fried goose at my sister's wedding. But, as you can see - no white frizzy friedness going on here. It's okay! I can breathe a sigh of relief. Last night I was a bit worried - but then again my hair hair drying w/o product in it is always a bit worrisome.

And this is me at 29 weeks and 2 days.

I don't think the size has changed much recently, but the shape seems to have changed. I feel like she's moving up now. Who knows. She's measuring on target at 29 weeks. I don't have gestational diabetes. And my iron is about as low as it's allowed to get before the word transfusion starts getting thrown around. So, I am now a 2x a day-er with my iron pills and I will have to keep taking iron until after baby is born at this point. No worries. I'd rather have to take iron pills than hemorrhorage during labor.

  6. hey goose - you're so beautiful when you're pregnant. you honestly just glow... I love it :)
    by the way - take some Vitamin C with your iron. Iron cant be absorbed without it... love you

  7. Hi Susie!

    Not that you need me to tell you, but you are one beautiful pregnant lady. :) You do look fabulous.

    Glad to hear that all is well. I'll be praying about the iron in your blood.

    God bless.

  8. You look so good. I am jealous. I am resembling a bus or a house or something right now. MUST EAT BETTER! Sammy boy and I are leaving today on a jetplane....Whoo hoo!! Any tips for a crazy 3 year old on a plane? Well, by the time you comment, I'll probably already be in Oklahoma so I'll let you know how it goes...ahh! Lots of toys, food, and books (maybe some Tylenol?) haha.. No no no.. Just straight up fun time!!! Love ya!

  9. your hair looks great I love it

  10. your belly is picture perfect! You look great! AWESOME job with your hair! I need to get something done with mine... I have never had a hair style in my 31 + years. I dont know what to do with it and dont have anyone to give me advice on it or where to even go! Ack!
    oh, and is there something that makes someone have low iron like that? just the pregnancy? I have had 4 babies and dont know anything about the iron. Is there symptoms that would tell you it was low like that? I feel like I sounds stupid asking all these questions. Did you have the same issue with Oceana and Joshua (I am sure you have probably mentioned it and I missed it)
    So close!!
