Well, I used to be a big fan of the black and red nail polishes, but since we moved, I threw all of that out (most of it was too old to use).  But the other day I thought that I should pamper myself, so I went out and bought a whole bunch of fun stuff, including makeup and nail polish.  I put on the nail polish last night and slept HORRIBLY!  I couldn't understand it because I WAS sleeping great!  But last night I woke up and felt like I couldn't breathe, and my hands were a little swollen.  Well, today I noticed my wedding ring getting tight.  I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me all of a sudden.  Then it hit me:  the nail polish!  Something about me being pregnant didn't agree with the polish, and now my hands are all red and puffy!  I took the polish off just now, but the polish remover isn't the best for you either... 

It's ridiculous!  I can't seem to do ANYTHING fun for myself!  No hair dying, no polish, my face is broken out, so makeup sucks, and no hot baths or jacuzzis...  It's not fair!  At least I only have a couple more weeks, but still.  I'm so over it.  Why does everything seem so taboo for pregnant women??

Feb. 3, 2008 at 3:53 AM Well, I got my hair dyed.  My doctor said it was no problem.  Sorry you had a reaction to the nail polish, it could have just been the brand though.   And as for hot baths, you can still take pretty warm baths, you just can't get overheated :)  I went in a Jacuzzi because I was in so much pain, but it was my sisters so they turned it down to 100 degrees and the doctor said that was perfectly fine.
