did you wear any make up for labor?

I had my baby yesterday and before I went into the hospital I made sure to do my hair and make up, my husband was in disbelief but I didn't get the big deal I was having a baby not dying!!! Did you do your make up or hair before going into labor?

  • I know right?! thats what I said, I woke up took a shower and did my hair. I don't have to look like crap just cause I'm having a baby, I still want to look pretty, the doctors were a little surprised to see me too, oh well. I'll take care of my baby and myself.

  • I didn't do it before labor because I was induced, but I did put it on after my first shower after labor. The nurse thought I was nuts when she saw me fixing my hair in the mirror! LOL

  • Hell no. But I was in labor for about 20 hours before I headed to the hospital. It was pretty intense already when I left. Well, I did brush my hair. But I didn't do much to style it (it was really short anyway), and definitely no makeup.

  • yes and no. I was at a bbq when I had to go to the hospital, so I was already done up nice for the bbq.

  • LOL!!! Heck No! I was not worrying about that. If I did I would either be having the baby at home or in the car because I have fast deliveries. But I don't do make up on a daily basis either.

  • Are you kidding?? I could have cared less what I looked like. Your face and hair isn't where all the doctors and nurses are concentrating all the their attention!!! LOL!

  • No way! I don't believe in getting done up to go to the gym and work out either ... makes no sense to me..

  • LOL...I had just gotten ready to go to my normal appt. when labor started. So, I was already fixed up. The next day, I got a shower and puton light make-up though.
