Gestation Frustration



Every women has preconceived ideas of how they’ll be, look and feel when pregnant. I remember having conversations with friends in my early 20’s – nodding enthusiastically as they declared that they would never not have time to get  their nails done.. or would never let a bit of tiredness stop them from going to the salon…

Over the last couple of months, my hair has been bleached, dyed (4 times!) loaded with 36 inch blonde extensions, steamed, tonged, pulled, yanked.. everything short of deep fried, all in the name of fashion! The recent doses of chlorine from the local pool had all but turned my hair into a frazzled ball of afro frizz. If hair could talk, it would be screaming at me to stop and get some conditioning treatments, as it happens, Mr Gray got there first.
