braiding days

If u have been reading my blogs lately u probably know i am expecting and ready to hatch any day now… currently in my week 38 i have always been careful about all products i have used ever since i came to know i have a little life inside me…

there were times when people suggested a lot of things to me… ‘dont wash your hair with shampoos- they have chemicals that may harm your baby’ ; ‘ dont drink soda- the carbonated water may be harmful for the little one’ ; ‘ dont drive- you may suddenly get low on sugar and feel dizzy’ etc etc!

yea, somewhere they are all myths and somewhere they all have a truth in them. there are a lot of things that can be harmful to the baby. and i made sure i took utmost care on how to handle them.
shampoo is priority one on my list… living in a hot city like ahmedabad i cant even think of not washing my hair for a whole week!! forget not washing it for 9 months… since my brother deals with chicco products in his business line he suggested i use those baby products. they are extremely safe with parabens free… if they suggest it for new borns, i can definitely try them. i used to use that until dove sponsored me to try their new range…

  dove to manage split ends

and why not!!
baby shampoos are chemical free and really safe but they dont treat split ends!!

 as a school going kid i remember having thick dark beautiful curly locks of hair… i grew up, fantasized with all disney characters and film stars and got caught in endless hair straightening sessions… which only ruined my hair.
as a child i remember never having any split end problems, why would i even have any? i regularly oiled and shampoo-ed my hair… then the whole keeping the hair oil free in college days made the after college hair days miserable!

the hair wash seemed such a refreshing change!!!
the fragrance of dove lingering in my hair… mmmmm its incomparable!! 
the wonderful fresh n light feeling it gave to my hair is recommendable too. my hair felt lighter and felt like it has more air to breathe now!
i m just 4 washes old with this product and i can already see the difference!
this post is surely sponsored but i cannot lie to my readers! i will recommend this product to whoever have split end problems…
specially someone who do not want frequent visits to the salon to go cut-cut-cut on the length of her hair to keep the split ends away! 
i hate short hair and this product can be really useful. i can now braid my hair and i am sure 2 weeks later when I LET THE ENDS OF MY BRAID on my new born’s cheeks to play with him/her the baby is not going to cry; but enjoy the nice smooth feeling. 🙂
cant wait to see my little now in my arms now… counting the days 🙂
the you tube video to the product:

try it and see the difference!

roll … sound…

I can hear his/er voice… I hear the heart beats every time i go for a check up.

i can feel him/her roll inside… rumbling and dancing around.
i can feel the presence more than ever before!
this is my 32nd week and i am having the best time as compared to all these previous weeks that passed by…
i now have 8 more weeks before the youngest of our tribe lands in my arms and a double duty begins.

wat i really want to write here about are the Braxton Hicks.
these are minute pain in the tummy or abdomen from the 7th months onwards… the mommy to be feels like her tummy has swollen and she can feel the tummy become hard (partially or full bump).
well, worry not… this is nothing but a phase which in lay man’s words can be described as early signs of labor. your baby and you are getting signals of what it could be during real labor time. this doesn’t last long but atleast you now have an idea what kind of a pain you may feel on the big day!

initially in my 7th month i felt BH (braxton hicks) only twice… in my 8th (current) month i have had it twice and i m still have some 18 days to go before i jump to the last month. i guess the frequency increases with time preparing me mentally and physically with what i am going to face in the labor stage.

if you are in your third trimester and observe such uneasiness for a day, worry not! its natural to feel that way, no one ever said giving birth to a baby was easy!

wat can you do to ease the pain??
try having a warm bath…
try indulging into your fav chocolate pastry or anything you love at this moment…
meditate and talk to your baby, tell you baby how wonderful you feel to have him/her inside you and that you love him/her a lot. ask your child to talk to calm down or talk to you…
try reading a book you always wanted to…
try breathing exercise… this is the best thing you will learn and bless…

need someone professional to talk about your pregnancy concerns…
ask my baby’s godmother- Rita, she knows whats going on in my womb better than i do !

cheers to motherhood!
