hiya all! up until now, i have not been somebody who likes pampering herself. aside from massages, i don't usually comb my hair or look at the mirror to check myself. i just don't think it is worth the effort. i know you get the picture. however, i am 7 months pregnant now. and i have gained a lot of weight. i have committed to not only lose my baby weight, but also to pamper myself a bit. you know, fix my hair, and probably do something about the scars on my face. i would like to look pretty, prettier than when i was single. hehe i have taken myself for granted for a long time and i am bent on taking care of myself. what about you? do you have the same mentality? take care all and God bless you! happy mylotting! :d

Hello spoiled311, Just recently I decided to change the way I look physically. I want to be as pretty as when I was younger where I had a lot of admirers I can't take any more complaints about my appearance especially from my husband. My husband takes care of his appearance much more better than I do nowadays. I can't let this thing happens any longer ...

You know...I've found that it seems easier for men to keep up their appearance than it is for us women. I'm not sure if I'm right or not...but it's just something I've observed. All they need to do is shower (don't they smell so great when they get out of the shower? LOL) and throw on a pair of jeans and a shirt and they, for some reason, look good. Maybe it's society...but for us...we tend to, at the very least, want to blow dry our hair and make sure we have a little make up on...some cover up or something. It just seems like more work for us than it is for them. Hmm....Something to look in to. :-)

When I was younger and single I really took great care of myself, never leaving the house without makeup, exercising, nice clothes etc. Then I sort of feel into a slump, raising kids, cleaning, working didn't leave much time for me. Now I'm older, my kids are grown and I just realized that I never got back into the routine of taking care of me! Your discussion reminded me that I need to run a comb thru my hair, get regular trims, paint my nails and all of that girly stuff. Lets make a vow to spend 10-15 minutes daily on pampering. I know we will feel so much better!

Hello! I am a Stay-At-Home-Mom. I understand what you feel right now. The only secret to that kind of situation is feel every moment that you are in. Meaning, if there are "sort of negative situation"and make you feel odd...just simple breathe in and feel relax. If you have kids already (you only mentioned that you are pregnant, why not play with them or talk to you baby inside your womb. Feel the wonderful blessing inside you.Forget all worries.And never worry about the future... weight gain or any physical changes in you are just because you are preggy. That is normal. Instead, be prepared for you delivery but not worrying about it. When I was pregnant, my daily regimen is to start myself a shower.In that way , you will feel the freshness in the morning.Enjoy every sunrise.Feel the warmth of every sunset. Be inspired. Love more the people you love.Stay inlove with your husband. Feel beautiful and you will look beautiful.

[i]Hi spoiled, I guess it's not good to do that, pamper yourself each day! LOL! But, I understand since you are working in the house, so, no need to take an effort to spend a lot of time making up ourselves! I tend to be like that...It's 11 am here and I have not taken a shower yet, I was online since 6 am when hubby left! LOL! But,I am about to fix myself too! LOL![/i]

When I was younger, I didn't really think too much about it. But now, after 4 kids, I'm finally settled, am engaged to a wonderful man and I do think about it. I think we deserve to pamper ourselves. It makes us feel good about ourselves and, when we feel good, everyone around us can see it. :-) And when we're pregnant, that's a very stressful time, emotionally. You definitely should try hard to pamper yourself, even now before the baby is born. :-)
