Sadly, not much goes into my appearance these days. It's not really the pregnancy though. We moved in Oct. and somehow I just stopped putting on make up daily shortly after we moved because there was just so much going on. I've never really got back with that routine (it really only takes me about 4-5 minutes too).
It depends. If I'm staying home all day, I usually just throw my hair up and skip the make up. If were venturing outside, I put some make up on. I shower every night and keep up on shaving, I don't start skipping that stuff until I have a newborn who screams when I put him/her down . Then since I have to take showers with him/her the frequency slows and the shaving has to wait!
I still do most things regularly, though I don't really ever fix my hair (just brush it where I want it and zot it with hairspray). I will get back into the routine of make up every day when I go back to work next week.

My October Space
It's strange...I've never been a big makeup wearer, or big into accessories or things like that, but I have actually been putting more of an effort in. Not really sure why the sudden change, but its nice to actually "do" my hair in the morning (when I have time), or put on some eye shadow, and a pretty necklace/earring set.
Side note: with DS I was soooo exhausted, face broken out, and always looked like HELL, so with him I saw no point to even trying. This one, I am super uncomfortable, but actually feel good.
Since I go to work everyday, alot more then last time. With DS I stayed home alot and only worked a few nights a week, so I didn't do much. This time, I have a great man that thinks pregnancy is beautiful and I feel better about myself this time, so I do my hair and makeup everyday. Try to shave if you know what I mean, and I have bought alot more maternity clothes this time. I think it's worth it because it's such an amazing time in your life!
More than normal actually. I am so tired of feeling like the frumpy Mom. I have started wearing more makeup and dressing up more(at least when I go out). When I am pg I sorta feel a little better because I am big because I am pg(not just big because I am fat like usual). At the beginning I bought about $200 of clothes from Motherhood Maternity. Mixing and matching that stuff with my normal stuff has really helped me feel more put together. I love that store! After I have the baby I am going to go spend some money on some nicer(non-Maternity) clothes and I think that will help me get through those plump times.
