Thanks, Curlsgirl & Sakina.

Hair is now 39.5 inches long. Routine has been mostly the same. Since the weather has been cooling and drying off, I've increased my deep treatments to once every two to three weeks instead of a full month, and occasionally I'll even use some conditioner after shampooing. I have also resumed using one to two drops of oil on damp hair, but any oil on dry hair is still giving me the oilies. Le sigh.

Babassu oil has been ordered, as I really want to try coconut oil but am leary of all the proteins in it. Babassu was available for fairly cheap on Etsy, so we'll see how that works!

I've been participating in a "hair challenge" where I have to wear a different hair style every day for 60 days, no repeats. I'm on day 56! Only four more styles to go. Hopefully, when I'm done, I'll still have time to go back and take pictures of the styles I missed, so that my photo journal will be complete.

Life has been pretty hectic. I'm at 37 weeks now, so the bean is full-term. We had a scare back at 34 weeks where she was still breech, but an external version performed at the hospital this Wednesday flipped her right around. DH and I are relieved! Now I just need to coax her into a final good position before I pop. I hope it's soon! I'm tired of being so big!

House is now unpacked. I blame the baby shower that I had three weeks ago. Nothing like having strangers over at your house to add that extra little oomph of incentive to clear out all the cardboard!  Grin

The kitty cat is also doing quite nicely. He's getting huuuuge! Everybody who visits refuses to believe that the li'l guy is only 5 months old, he's so big now. Sad
He's still our purring little kitten though, prone to bouts of crazy flying about the house.

Not much else to report. Hope all of you are doing well!

Its nice to see you on the board, Kitten. 

The yoga posture Downward Facing Dog will turn the baby to optimal birthing position.  Good luck!!!

I hope you'll post some of your hair challenge pics!

Thanks Sakina, for the tip.

I've tried a few downward dogs, but my carpal tunnel doesn't let me do very many. I'm trying out a few positions that are very similar to downward dog that are easier for very pregnant ladies to do.  Grin

No changes in hair today. Hair is still EXTREMELY unhappy at me for having:
1. Blowfried it
2. Braided it damp
3. Scrubbed it against a hospital bed on Wednesday
and 4. Leaving it in for 2 days, since I was too exhausted to take care of it after the version.
It's expressing it's unhappiness by tangling if I even look at it funny. If I manage to comb it out, just putting down the comb will cause it to snarl up again.  Undecided

Oh well. Hopefully after the midwife visit today, I can take some extra time to pamper it, and give it a deep treatment, so it forgives me. It's so unhappy it hasn't even been complaining about all the extra oil I've been using on it to try to tame the frizz.  Sad

Kitten had a litter box incident this morning that resulted in him having to have a bath. Poor kitten! He's all damp and sad now. There is something so pathetic about soggy long-haired cats.  Grin

I'll try to post pictures from my 60 style hair challenge journal after I'm done with the challenge. I think today's style is going to be the cowrie shell bun, since my hair is sooo cranky at being braided so much. Honestly, by the time you get to style 40, you run out of all the nice nontwisted bun styles, and you end up having to do lots of elaborate braided styles. My goal is to do something super fancy for the last day.  Smiley

Good to hear from you KNS!  It sounds like all is well with you,hubby,kitty and the little bean! Wink
If Downward Facing Dog on the mat is trouble for your CTS, I'd recommend doing a modified version using a sturdy chair.  Send me a pm and I'll give details and specifics.

Curlgirl64 beat me to it- definitely use a chair to modify, and make your legs quite wide apart for a comfy belly.

I'm excited to see your hair challenge pics.  I love elaborate  braided hairstyles.   Cheesy
