It may be a silly thing to think about, but if it gives you more confidence then why not. Aren't there women that hire like makeup artists to come in and touch up their makeup ever so often during labor... lol that seems far sillier to me, but to each their own I suppose.
This is funny! I have not thought about jewelry but I have earrings in all the time. I have made sure I got my hair trimmed, eyebrows waxed. I also have been thinking about how I will wear my hair for birth because last time it was all over the place.
Right? The pictures from that completely unpredictable day/time will be around fooooreeeever so, I better at least try to look decent! Last time my water broke at work so my hair was fixed, had earrings in, and make up on. If it happened right now, I'd be in my pjs without having run so much as a comb through my hair... I'd have to clean myself up a bit before I went in!
Someone I know had her sister come into the hospital when she was in labor...in the middle of the night I might add...to curl her hair and do her makeup for her so she'd look good in her pictures. Personally, I think she looks out of place like the dropped her in for a photo opp after the baby was born. It just looks strange (and I feel like a bit conceited, but JMHO). Don't get me wrong, I'd rather not look like death but if you look too good, your kids won't feel bad about you having to go through labor/delivery for them when they're older looking at pictures (kidding!)
Earrings though...totally acceptable!! Even a little makeup and/or quickly trying to make your hair look decent before you head in are good in my book.
I'm just doing my makeup probably the second day I'm there so I don't scare my visitors haha! That and I'll feel more myself. I'm sure I'll look crappy during surgery and after. Oh well.. part of life!
Ashley, wow. That's a little much lol but I'm sure lots of people do that. I bet actresses do.
