Whiskers, Moustache and Spots... oh my

"Please try the tank top on for me, I just need to check the neckband isn't too tight" Oh the effort as the Bubela tried it on. God forbid I interupt his normal morning routine. Check out the organisation on the Bubela's bed. He's a real daddy's boy, everything in spick and span order.

I thought initially that I had made the V neck rib too small, well, in actual fact I did as I when I was setting out the design I forgot to account for an inch of ribbing. Oy, why don't I just follow a pattern for an easy life. I do have two choices. 1. Keep it as it is; or 2. Frog the whole front and recalculate the V neck to accommodate the inch rib.

I'll try it on again and see what's best. A slight tug over the head isn't so bad, is it?

7 + 2 weeks. Whilst the Bubela was in the bath last night, I thought I'd take the opportunity to get the magnified mirror out and check out these spot I have under my chin. What with the lighting like a football pitch and the mirror magnified x5 I'd really see what's going on.

To my absolute horror and disbelief I spotted about 10 long black whiskers *gasp*. TWEEZERS!!! Why can't I have normal pregnancy symptoms? Give me sore boobs, or heartburn, or even sickness. Why d'ya have to throw the ugly bug at me?

*rubbing my tummy* I love being pregnant. Thank you god.

Bubela is such a cutie pie! Everything looks so organized. I suddenly feel so ashamed...

I now it's not funny, but your mustache story made me laugh. Sorryyy!

Pregnancy symptoms are not fun any way that you look at them! I just saw a picture of myself...My face looks like balloon. I am so fat!

I hope I have an organized little one like yours!

Bea said...

Even WITH the furry chin - you're STILL adorable! I'm so happy for you!

Ah! My middle child was this orderly! GOOD NEWS! She still is! (Well, except the bed not getting made occasionally!:o)

Have a LOVELY day!

You are so pretty, Estee! Little chin hairs and all ;) I am so happy for you and your little one inside ;)

your son is a cutie. I'm learning about OB and Peds right now. (I'm in nursing school) So it will be fun to track your pregnancy progress:)

Caitlin said...

Congrats on your pregnancy(!) I have been following your alphabet blanket for weeks (err, months?) and absolutely LOVE the end result! Talk about testing one's patience...

Had to laugh at the whiskers... I have one or two that seem to suddenly sprout six inches all at once. How do they do that? They're not there at all and then BAM long long fine blond chin hair! Crazy. Love the Bubela. Does he charge by the hour? Could he come over and organize my house? :)

Pull the chin hairs out and forget them. Probably some residual thing from your previous treatment. Takes weeks to grow a decent chin hair!

Maria said...

Take the ugly bug!!! It's the only one that doesn't hurt. I threw up every food known to man. That makes you ugly too. The green color on the face isn't attractive. Congratulations!!! I did lots of infertility stuff, but now have five!!!! What was I thinking. Life is good!

SweetPeaknits said...

Oh Maria - surely not five at one go?

Furry chin? Just a precursor of what life is like after 50!!
For the v-neck, use applied I-cord instead of ribbing. I love applied I-cord, it is much neater than ribbing and adds a little designer touch!

If it makes you feel better, I have what I call my "witch whisker" which grows on the side of my chin. It is black, thick and downright fugly! Not quite 10, I know. But I have never had children it is just my gene pool. And I know for a fact the my mom, aunt and great aunt all pluck whisker from thier chins on a regular basis.

I just depressed myself! ;-)

hey, I know I'm kinda behind, but I just wanted to say congratulations for that baby on the way !! Really glad for you.
(and as for the whiskers, reminds me of those long black hairs around my tits during my first pregnancy..yuck!)

Don't worry about the moustache. That is only transitory though, I have to say, when you pass the 50 mark you may have to get used to the odd chin hair appearing overnight. Best not to pluck them - only encourages more growth - just get a little pair of sharp scissors and carefully snip them. All par for the course I'm afraid. I could do with your bubela around here. Must have a tidy round instead of blogging. lol

Well, I hope that your little hairs do go away after the pregnancy hormones do. After my second one, 4 years ago, I am still plucking savagely. ICK. I love my boys, just another thing no one tells you about. Chin up, this is not the worst it could be!!
