  • I had an induction date. I put on eyeliner and mascara and straightened my hair.. I shouldn't have.. I threw up the entire time and it really didn't matter what I looked like! My pics looked AWFUL all three times! lol

  • Nope, I didn't wear makeup at that point in my life at all. And my hair was just in a messy bun cause that's what was easiest... That said, I didn't allow pictures. Besides my wedding and a photo I had taken for business reasons I haven't allowed photos of me to be taken in 10 years.

  • @SabrinaMBowen...That is sad :( May I ask why you don't want any pictures of yourself? Your kids will want them someday.....

  • I had makeup on only because I was already wearing it when i went in. My hair was down when I got there but went up in a ponytail

  • Twice I went into labour in the middle of the night and once first thing in the morning- putting on makeup and doing my hair wasn't really on my mind at the time! I really seldom do makeup anyhow, even when I'm not giving birth. The only time I really looked atrocious was when I had my first, because I was in labour for twelve hours and was all sweaty... also forgot to bring a ponytail elastic so my hair was all over the place. My other two labours were pretty quick so I didn't look quite as rung-out. I really love the pics anyhow- such a great memory even if I did look a mess!

  • I didn't wear makeup either time, and I wore my hair in a ponytail. I was in labor two days with each of my children and would have wanted to wash it off anyway. Only my husband and my best friend saw me and I know they didn't care if I prettied myself up.

  • Yeah I was induced....I put on mascara and lip gloss and had my hair in a pony tail. Even if I wasn't induced I still would have take the thirty seconds to comb my hair and use some mascara

  • I can honestly say makeup was furthest from my mind when I was in labor. However in my case, I guess I still had some on from before I went in for my induction. I had an epidural and, frankly, a fairly tame labor but even then I'm pretty rumpled in the pictures.

  • I was induced & I wore my regular daily makeup & I looked pretty good going in. I delivered quickly but for some reason all my makeup was like gone! The pictures that my DH took of me look like I was shell shocked! LOL!
