Just venting. There is no such thing as a pregnancy glow during Covid. 31 weeks and pretty f-ing over it. I just want my hair dyed, a pedicure and a wax. I think I’ve aged 10 years in the last 7 months.

I’m 20 weeks and just got a pedicure and it made me feel so much better. I also started wearing makeup more because I was feeling so gross and disgusting Anytning helps lol

It seriously made such a difference to my mood just blow drying my hair and putting on mascara 😂

In San Francisco also 38 weeks pregnant and I guess I’m the weird one that is really enjoying my pregnancy. I shave down there and can’t see below anymore but I kept shaving by feeling for hair anyway. Anything for vanity 🤪🤪🤪

There is silver lining. Not having to ride the MUNI while battling morning sickness was a huge plus! Taking a power nap on a lunch break every so often was also amazing. And I still shave too, just prefer a wax annnndddd I feel like my days of being able to see anything down there are coming to an end 😳 congratulations on 38 weeks my fellow SF mama!

I was ~20 weeks in September on my birthday and treated myself to a nice home pedicure. The friggin bottle I got had a wonky brush and my toes looked like crap for weeks, bc I accidentally ordered gel instead of regular and couldn’t get it off. #2020

Uh oh...I’m 34 weeks and have dyed my roots, kept up with Waxing and had one pedicure. Any reason you can’t? I took precautions and have been fine.

K2 - I’m originally from Florida and I have a friend there who said she had “COVID PTSD”... and I’m like, does the P still stand for ‘Post’? ... As in, Covid is over down there in Florida???! 🤦‍♀️🧐

I think you can do some of this stuff safely

Ah, rats. I’m in Michigan but most of this stuff has re-opened here. In that case, I would order a good pedicure kit and some face masks, hair masks & body scrubs. Not exactly the same, but might help a little!

here's my prediction. If Biden wins, the media will begin to message the following; -The worst COVID risks and outcomes are to people with identifiable risk factors such as obesity and diabetes. -Most other people who catch it will experience a bad flu. -Many other people who catch it won't even know they have it. -It's not commonly transmitted by touching objects and person to person transmittal is low risk except in close contact. The media will then message that we should; (cont'd)
