My big ol' belly, which better get bigger because I am determined to keep her in!

Gotta love how a hospital visit will make you look, still trying to understand how some people after giving birth look fantastic... Crazy women!

Shawnda,
I really don't think you look that bad,my plan is as soon as I start feeling those labor pains I am going to shower and but my hair up and put on make-up. Even if my make-up smears during labor, at least it will look like I started out looking decent before I came to the hospital. I hate pictures and pictures when I am looking my worste is going to be bad. I looked at all my mom's after pictures and she did't look bad at all, plus I've seen other women not look so bad afterwards if they have an epidural. Then they're not stressing themselves out so much and sweating all over the place. But, I won't know for sure until I get there.

I think I will because I won't be rushing to the hospital the second I go into labor. I am going to hold out as long as possible because I don't want to sit in the hospital for hours when the labor isn't that bad. My mom held out on all of hers and then had the baby like 2 or 3 hours after she got there. My doctor told me not to come in until my contractions were about 10 mins apart, but my mom didn't go in until her contractions were about 5 mins apart. So, thats probably what I will do. I hate the hospital and I don't want to be there any longer than I have to. lol So, I will have plenty of time to prepare to go in. If my labor is normal.
