.hair cut.

I did it. It feels so good to have short hair again. I didn't know why I was so unhappy with my long hair, as I had long, long hair for the first 24 years of my life and loved it! I really wanted to long hair, but couldn't stand wearing it out because it was so thick and heavy. The hairdresser told me that when you are pregnant you don't lose any hair (did you know that? I didn't!) and then lots of people still don't lose hair if they are breastfeeding - something to do with hormonal changes in the body. So, since I was pregnant with Oscar, I have pretty much been pregnant or breastfeeding for 4 1/2 years - which means 4 1/2 years of no hair falling out!

I would have liked to go lighter, but ended up just getting thin blonde foils because I know that in 6 weeks time I would be battling bad re-growth and don't want to have to go to the hairdressers so often. I wish I could do some blonde dying at home, but am too scared I will stuff it up!

I'm not really happy with the cut either, it is kind of "bobbish" instead of styled, but the hairdresser said to pop back in a few days after I have had a play and she would change it if I want. Anyway, a change is always good and we will be saving a lot on shampoo and conditioner now!!

The cut definitely looks fresh. I'm sure it will be HEAPS easier to manage too.
Theres nothing better than a new "do". Its scary though, when you've been growing it for so long.
You're lucky that you hair sits so nice without having to spend too long doing it.

Very cute! It must be a hormonal thing wanting to get your hair cut as I did with all three babies :) I love how easy it was to manage....as if mums get any more than 2 mins to have a shower and get ready anyway!
Not long now, I'm so excited for you! (I'm one of those odd ones too who think birth is exhilarting)My SIL Kate (Ziesel now Cummings) is due the same time as you, yipee to being an aunty again!

It looks great! It will be nice not to have a baby pulling at it all the time, when he or she gets older. My hair is quite the opposite when I am pregnant and breastfeeding. I loose so much hair that I have to clean the drain every couple of days. Yuck!
