  • Yes, I try to never look like a slob. When I look good, I feel good. I take pride in taking care of myself & looking presentable. Why should going in to have a baby be different from going out in public & looking clean & well groomed? You may look like you went through the ringer after you deliver but at least you went in looking good! LOL!

  • I put my hair in a nice neat pony last time when I was induced, the first two it was what it was and yes I looked terrible in the pics but the babies looked beautiful. Lets face it, we are the only ones looking at ourselves in those pics!!!! To me putting on make up to have a baby would be like the women at the gym who put on makeup to work out, its going to get all messed up anyway so theres little point.

  • Well! I have the fortune to not depend on makeup too much. Now when it comes to hair I have to have my iron. I mean you want to have pictures to show the rest of the family. I'm not going to look bad. LOL

  • My answer to this was to insist that NO (ZERO) photographs be taken of me at the hospital. Take all the pics you want of the baby. I'm clearly not going to be at "my best" and, unless you wish for your camera to be busted into itsy-bitsy little camera pieces, you will NOT take my picture. I had no desire to cherish my appearance on that day!
