8.5 Months Preggers and Hair Updates!Pregger Updates

I thought I should check in with you gals! I’m 34.5 weeks and baby and I are healthy, happy (most days), and after this upcoming weekend, my nesting should be completely finished! I’ve had the house power-washed (hubby said it was completely unnecessary), the carpets professionally cleaned, the dogs groomed, and everything Lysol’ed and dusted. I’m still walking daily (30 minutes on the treadmill) and eating healthy. My latest craving– smoothies! I had no idea they were so easy to make- – I blend 1 cup of frozen fruit, 1 cup of plain low or non-fat yogurt and 3/4 cup of 100% juice (usually V8 Fusion). Scrumptious!

I Cried at Walmart…

I’m sure you’re wondering why. This incident occurred a week ago and I’m just now in an emotional state to be able to discuss and laugh about it. At the time, I was livid and inconsolable. It’s incredibly petty, but I guess it comes with the pregger territory!

A little background- – I loathe, no, I detest Super Walmart. I hate having to fight my way down the aisles and duck and dodge run away shopping carts and misbehaving children. I have little patience for it when I’m not pregnant, which is why I had managed to avoid Wally World for months… until that day.

I was in desperate need of an Oreo Blizzard and decided to make my own with slightly healthier ingredients. I didn’t grab a cart, so after locating the ice cream and being sent on a wild goose chase to find the Oreos (they were remodeling the store), I made my way up to the front to checkout…looking uber pregnant I’m sure, waddling along with ONLY a tub of ice cream and a bag of Oreos in my hands, LOL.

Of the 25 or so lanes, 3 were open, and the self-checkout lines were ridiculously long. I only had the two items, so I made a b-line for the ’10 items or less’ lane. Unfortunately I wasn’t swift enough because a lady jumped in front of me with a cart full of stuff– everything from lacy undergarments, to cans of corn, to fertilizer. There were literally 80 items in her cart…piled high on top, and stacked deep on the bottom. She looked at me, I looked at her- – stuck out my stomach and put my hand on it… thinking that would make her say, ‘oh, go on ahead… you’ve only got two things and you’re pregnant’. But nope, she began to slowly empty her cart on to the tiny counter.

Twenty minutes and three price checks later, she’s jaw jacking with the cashier, laughing it up, and paying with multiple credit cards. I’m flustered, hot (literally about to catch fire), my feet are swollen, and I’m painfully aware that my ice cream is melting, fast. Now I’m pissed. My cell rings… it’s hubby who asks for a cheeseburger from the McDonald’s that is (for whatever reason) located inside the Walmart. I finally ring out, snatch my receipt from the cashier (I feel bad for that… it wasn’t her fault), grab my bag and make my way to the opposite end of the store.

The McDonald’s line was 15 peeps deep! OMG! I lost it… all I could think about was my melting ice cream, and cursing out the lady who refused to respect the ’10 Items or Less’ sign. Tears welled up and began streaming down my face… I couldn’t control it! The funny thing was that I wasn’t even embarrassed… at that point, I was like ‘I wish somebody would come over here and say something to me’, LOL.

So when I pulled up in the driveway, hubby met me at the car to help me carry in my melted ice cream (among other things). I was doing my best to hold back my tears when he asked, ‘Are you okay? They got on your nerves, huh?’ I lost it again! I felt horrible because he looked so helpless. I made my blizzard, put loads of warm fudge on top (to drown my sorrows), and propped myself up in the bed in front of the TV (an episode of Baby Story I’m sure). Note to self– Wally World is off limits until AFTER August.

Hair News

Yeah, so my hair has completely stopped shedding. I noticed it in the 6th month, and when I say I get one, maybe two shed hairs per wash session, I’m not kidding. It’s eerie and definitely a sign of things to come. I know that once she arrives, all of the extra hairs making my mane thick and beautiful are going to hit the floor. Postpartum shedding is right around the corner, and hopefully my public experience with it here on CN.com will help all of you! While I’m dreading the post pergger hair fall, I’m looking forward to hair in other places going away– a fine layer of fuzz (I call it my fur) has cropped up all over my belly. So strange… is this some throw back trait to keep the baby warm in there?! Creepy.
In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy this new found volume and rock it proud! I alternate between Twist-n-Curls and high or mid-height messy buns, depending on my mood.

    Nikki, I know you have had the baby, but I just had to comment. Your writing is laugh out loud funny! I love it!! You have such a warm and down-to-earth spirit. Isn't it a blessing that you are able to do what you love and share it with so many ppl…and they love you back?? I think it's wonderful.

    I am not prego but I have started having very emotional pms since turning 30 and my chocolate cravings are OFF THE HOOK! I would have reacted just like you regarding ole girl jumping in front of me. In addition to tear shed, there may have been blood shed lol. Her bad!

  • Anonymous says:

    Don't feel bad about the wally world incident. I had moments like that and I have never been pregnant. I hate wally world for the same reasons, that is why I only go there early in the morning.

  • becky says:

    just found your blog and I swear I love yooou…so adorable…lol @ the crying story…you had every right to get upset, that chick was inconsiderate…glad I found this blog!

  • The Creative Lady says:

    Not pregnant but I hate Wally World sometimes too. A trip there will test the patience of Job! Why have all those check out lines if they are not going to make it convenient for the customers? I believe that customers with way more than 20 items should be told "Sorry but this is the express line." I learned to always get a shopping cart even if I want 1 item. It makes good leaning when the line is long!

  • Annie Gracie says:

    Hi Curly Nikki! This is my first post on your page. I was inspired to respond because I had my baby 4.5 months ago and my post-preggers shedding is RIDICULOUS! Not to scare you but just to be real, it is just that serious. Starting about a month ago, I noticed a handful of hair (that is to say, hair all over my left hand after detangling and removing the shed hair), then it went to 2 handfuls, then to 3!! Talk about traumatizing! It took everything inside of me not to burst out crying then! Well just today I noticed a decrease back to 1 handful, yet as I pulled my hair back into a bun I could see where much of the hair had come from…my edges. I now look like I have a receding hairline on both sides of my hair! It sucks and I'll probably disguise it by wearing my hair out in a wash-n-go or twist out. I'm just hoping it starts to fill back in soon because it really looks empty and strange! Good luck to you throughout the rest of your pregnancy, delivery and postpartum bliss! The baby is worth EVERY bit of anything you may have to go through! It's only temporary!

  • Anonymous says:

    My baby is 3.5 mths and I am shedding like a labrador retriever! When I was pregnant I didn't really notice the lack of shedding but now it is absolutely ridiculous!!! It seems much worse than with my other 2 babies. I had a furry belly with all 3, by the way.
    Just be careful about putting your hair up after the baby – I lose hair on my hairline!
    Good luck!

  • momo7 says:

    I felt so bad for you while reading that story! Aaaaww! I can't believe you will be giving birth soon! Time moves swiftly!

  • Erica says:

    Well my sister had her 2nd baby today at midday, Diana Storm weighed 6lbs 6ozs and 20inches long with a head full of hair.

  • Anonymous says:

    Nikki you are looking good girl! Keep it up, you're almost there. I pray I look half as good as you when I get pregnant. You're all belly. When you get time, you should share in more detail your workout plan and meal plan.

  • Anonymous says:

    You are better than me Nikki! I was a BITCH when I was preggo, I dont care where we are, who you were if you did something I didn't like I let you know on the spot. Me my mom and sis went to the movie theaters when I was preggo, while trying to find seats everyone was like some one is sitting there, we are saving those seats. I yelled Damn this aint highschool and your friends aint casper the friendly ghost so there is no such thing as saving seats! My mom and my sis was lookin like, uh we dont feel like fighting nobody today! lol

  • svrbrownsuga says:

    Nikki I understand! that rude shopper is a hot ass mess for that. people really have no sense of respect for pregnancy, everyone is in a hurry. Hopefully, she will have learned her lesson after you barked on her! woohoo Nikki!

  • Anonymous says:

    I understand Nikki I am now about 28 weeks along and just tired mostly. Running behind a toddler the second time around your energy just depletes you. My hair is fuller too and I don't look forward to the post shedding. I had locks with my last baby and didn't notice it so much. You look great and I will be praying for you and little one. Take care.

  • Nichelle C. says:

    Nikki I really want to bang that lady who jumped in front of you at Walmart. LOL I know its not nice, but that got me heated.

  • AusetAbena says:

    The really thick virtually non-shedding hair is probably a result of the prenatal vitamins you are taking. I have read that other women who are not even pregnant take prenatal vitamins for longer thicker hair, and they claim it works. It also is supposed to strengthen nails. My advice would be to continue to take the vitamins are another vitamin for hair, skin, and nails even after the baby is born. That will probably keep the hair from shedding so much. Mind you, I'm no doctor, so you might wanna ask yours if its okay, but I don't see why it wouldn't be. Biotin vitamins are good too.

  • IJustWannaKnow2 says:

    Awww, sorry to hear about your Walmart experience. But thankfully, each passing day you draw closer to your big day – to deliver a healthy baby who will fill your house with love, and upon whom you can shower yours. God bless you, your hubby and your new bundle of joy!

  • Miss Dior says:

    Thanks for sharing this with us Nikki – I was curious as to the hair shedding or growth. I thought it had to do with your vitamins or the products you use on your hair during pregnancy. But I know you have an excellent hair routine and are eating healthy and exercising so it must be hormones. I wish you the best and congrats on you 8.5 months 🙂 Good job chica!

  • Kurlyk says:

    I love you…your story was so cute. If I was at that Walmart I would have given you a hug. Thanks for all that you do with your website. I appreciate your dedication to putting out such great information and you're 8.5 preggers at that! Kudos to you and the new baby!

  • Anonymous says:

    Walmart sucks…big time! I couldnt go there when I was pregnant because I was more of the evil pregnant type, and I would have probably kicked the lady with the 80 items.
    8.5 months is such a BEAUTIFUL time in a pregnancy!
    Best wishes and many blessings. Be sure to get some professional maternity shots done.
    I for one TOTALLY missed my belly when I gave birht:-)

  • Jasmine says:

    Looking good Nik! I'm pregnant as well and eating everything in sight you give me the motivation to try to stay active but its so hard!

  • Anonymous says:

    CN you're gorgeous and your hair looks great! Your Wal-Mart story is hilarious, lol.

  • Tiga says:

    I don't understand why there are no pregnant lines or pregnant seat when you take the transports. I rememeber when I was in Flo I was always wondering. Since I came back in Paris things have changed, there are special lines for us cause they understand that maybe you can be tired with carrying an extra human being. In the bus we have reserved seat as well> People let you pass if they see you pregnant.

    I m particularly afraid of the shedding that is gonna occur after pregnancy, Even though the breakage is not as bad for everybody but with carrying for a baby, the tiredness I figure its gonna be extra hard on my locks. Im looking forward to see your updates on that and see how others new mummies deal with it

  • Anonymous says:

    Gee!! I can't believe pregnants face lines there. Here, in Brasil, preggos don't take lines, they have the right to go before the rest of us in market, movies theater, banks… Unfortunately, it ends in some abuse some times, for example, the family gives all the bills for the preggo to pay or girls/women with 1-2 months (no belly) ask to check out before us).

  • Anonymous says:

    I'd be lying if I said I'd let a pregnant woman jump in front of me. (It's not my fault you're pregnant) but I also have a strict policy about not going in the speedy lanes if I have more than the limit even if it's one item over. And I'm surprised that the cashier didn't say anything. *Next time, take the ice cream and leave it somewhere in the clothing section.* They'll remember to have more lanes open in the future.

    Aside from all that, you look great! Glad to hear you are keeping active and staying fit. Congrats!

  • NikNak says:

    Man, that crying story is not b/c ur preggo, lol. I have cursed someone out at Wal-mart for not respecting the 10 items or less rule, and the cashier for taking them.

    But if u ever have to venture back into Wally World, and only have a couple of items, just take it to the pharmacy register, or the jewelry register. They WILL take you (if they are there).

    Saves a lot of headache.

  • Anonymous says:

    Nikki–
    You have been a God send and I wish I had "found" you when I was pregnant! I have a 6mo baby girl and a 2 yo little boy. LMAO–and girrrlll, did I have those Wally World moments. I thought I was losing it!!!!! Stay beautiful–you always are. And find a bunch of relax time between now and due time–do nothing but you!!!! Still cracking up.

  • Anonymous says:

    LOL.I went to walmart last night and i immediately thought about this story when i was in the check out lane.

  • Lovelyk says:

    When I was pregnant with my daughter, I took my son ( he was about 4) to the Disney Tarzan movie. I cried and cried when Tarzan's monkey mom died, LOL!!!!

  • CocoEuro says:

    First, you look so cute!!!! Not everyone can look fly while prego!!

    awww…sorry you had a horrible Wal-Mart experience!!! It amazes me how people can be so insensitive, it's sad!!! Feel better mama! Your bundle of joy will be here soon and she will bring you joy like no other can!!!

    I loved your Walmart story. I have so been there myself. Just fit to be tied over something that later I had to laugh about. Anywhoo, enjoy the hair. And the postpartum fall out may not be that bad. I don't even remember mine.

  • KeetaRay says:

    It probably doesn't feel this way for you, but your pregnancy is FLYING by! Lol I swear you just told us 3 months ago that you were preg! You look great, Nikki.

    You're so real and transparent, I appreciate that! Thanks for sharing your stories with us 🙂

  • Noveechops says:

    Good Morning Nikki, I hope you are resting.

    Medical illnesses
    Hormonal Changes

    Known To Help With:

    Scalp health, increasing blood flow, itchy scalp, healing of scars, dandruff etc.

    You will need:

    •100% Aloe Vera Juice

    Directions:

    Pour the Aloe Vera Juice in the spray bottle and leave it in the fridge to cool. Carefully part your hair in sections and spray it in your scalp 2-3 times per week before you moisturize your hair. Massage it in once finished (Your hair should not be wet but slightly damp).

    Results:

    You should notice less shedding, no dandruff, improved scalp health and as a bonus more growth!

    Take Care!

  • the diva says:

    Awww! Poor Nikki! Well, pregnancy hormones will do it ya. Try being stuck in a grocery line, with one in the belly and one in the cart who isn't walking! Speaking on shedding hair thing, I remember those days well. Even the hair on my legs didn't grow. It was wonderful. I noticed also, that my hair didn't start shedding again, until a few months after I stopped nursing. Maybe the combination of nursing and prenatals, kept it at bay. So that being said, if you plan on nursing then you may still keep all tht glorious hair for another year. Oh, and the hair on my legs? Still isn't as thick as before I was pregnant. After pregnancy try a vitamin called Marlyn 50 (it's listed in your doctors handbook, but can be bought over counter)

    Walmart is a pain for us who aren't pregnant so I can only imagine! I really appreciate your stories and honesty. It always makes me laugh and smile. Thanks so much for sharing and hang in there. 🙂 ~KF519

  • Rahshell says:

    Nikki I hated Walmart too, baby girl is 4 months old and I'm still mad!! It smelled terrible int here to me, no matter what state I was in I couldn't handle Walmart, my mom is in GA in-laws in TN 5 min from MS and I live in TX. I refuse to go during daylight hours, btwn 11pm and 2 am if I really need to get away 🙂 don't rush the end of the pregnancy, it'll be miserable but you will miss it when it's over, xoxox

  • P.S. I love this... says:

    So sorry to hear about your Walmart experience, that was just petty on that woman's part. Would it have killed her to let you go with 2 items. So sad. On a brighter note, you are beautiful with the cutest baby bump and fab hair!

    When I was pregnant with my daughter, I would crave strawberry ice cream and graham crackers. So when I prepared a bowl for myself, I would crumble the cookies to put on top, delish! One time I asked my bf to make me a bowl of strawberry ice cream with graham crackers.. so he brought it to me.. and didn't crush up the cookies, just put some big ole stupid cookies on top of my ice cream. I held it in my hands and my eyes watered.. then I bawled like a baby.. wailing out loud and everything. Then I got mad and shared some few choice words. Ah, lovely hormones.

  • NikNak says:

    Well, I'll be… *looks back at post to see if you really said, "I detest Super Walmart"*
    I've never heard those words uttered nor have I ever seen them typed and I never thought that I would. I ♥, NO, uber ♥ Super Walmart. When I get upset, I go to Walmart. I'm so sorry to hear you hate it so much.

    Anyways, you are the cutest pregnant woman ever! All belly and fab big hair- I love it!

    That is why I too either go to Target, or the Nieghnorhood Walmart grocery store…People treat Walmart like its the mall and plus i run over lil kids..not my fault they dnt have home training lol…just kidding but for real, my momma didnt play that running around the store thang…i got popped real quick

    I know im out of subject but you all's story strengthen my belief that there are marriageable men left after all 🙂

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    lol@noveechops! I feel you chica 🙂

    I first noticed the decrease probably somewhere in the 5th month. I don't, however, have any of the crazy growth (fast growing hair) that some women speak of. Never happened.

    I do have this weird two toned skin thing on my legs. My a$$ (which for some reason has always been darker) is black, lol! and I have a perfectly straight line running down the back of both of my legs– lighter skin to the right of the line, and darker skin to the left. The line is perfectly straight and starts and ends in the same place on both legs! It's the strangest pregnancy symptom of all. even weirder is that my mom had it too!

    Thanks again!

  • KristytheDAWN says:

    CN – when did you notice the decrease in shedding? I am 13 weeks pregnant and I don't see the shedding tapering off at all. I see you said in your 6th month you noticed it completely stopped but when did it start decreasing?

    Thanks!

  • Noveechops says:

    Girl I had to laugh I remember my husband getting a speedy ticket 5 minutes before Burger
    King closed because I wanted a Whopper
    and strawberry shake when I was pregnant
    with my daughter. Fast forward years
    later when I was pregnant with my son I
    sent the poor soul on the three trains
    in the heat to bring me back a dozen of
    crabs or his clothes were going in the
    hefty bags. You look amazing slow down
    you almost there.

  • Anonymous says:

    Congratulations, you are almost at the home stretch! I am about 2 weeks behind you 🙂 I hope you're fairing well in this hellish NC heat. Apparently my facial expressions when outside must be bad because one lady made a comment, lol, but nothing rude though 😉 If you're talking about the Wally World off of New Bern Ave. and New Hope (I too live in the triangle area), I TOTALLY feel your sentiments. However, as aforementioned, pretty much ALL of them are the devil >:( Hang in there mama! Relax, relate, and release 🙂

    Love you guys and thanks for the kind words, funny relatable comments, and well wishes. I hope too that she'll be here sooner rather than later. I'll be full term on the 30th!!!!

  • naturallady says:

    That is hilarious, I'm not pregnant and I want to cry when I go into Super Walmart too.

  • MissDiva_818 says:

    Why are ALL of the Walmarts the same EVERYWHERE!?!? The only time you can enjoy going to Walmart is the time between ten-thirty and eleven o clock at night. Lol And why is it that they even built 25 checkouts when they only open like 3????? Ewww.

  • Raya says:

    Why are people so mean? would it have killed that woman to let you slide through with your 2 items..smdh. I just don't understand human beings sometimes !

    Salutations,
    Love your website and wally story. Thank you for sharing because it really helps figure out what to do in similar situations, and learn from your experience. Personally, I love to shop early in the morning when no one is around except baby boomers or older. My Hubby laughs at me because of my shopping schedule, but it has reduced my mantra of this to shall pass being whispered while dealing with challenging situations. I haven't been blessed with a little person yet, but I hope to be a pregnant Diva Naturalista like you and hopefully respect the hormones that will take my emotions on a roller coaster. Live, Love, Peace. ~ Sweetsop
    P.S. Love your hair (before and after pregnancy, so don't sweat the shedding).

  • Nichole says:

    Hopefully the ice-cream made up for the hellish check-out. I have been known to check lines before I start shopping. If there's a Trader Joe's by you, get the Cookies and Cream. It's delish and the shopping experience is so much nicer. Let the countdown begin. Congrats hot mama to be!

  • Unknown says:

    *still giggling* Poor pregnant you. I've never been pregnant but you sure have given a very candid and funny account of the emotional rollercoaster. Thanks, Nikki. I love your site!

  • Afrikan Latina says:

    I think ALL walmarts are the devil. I usually only end up in WalMart if I'm with someone who needs to go.

    Bless your heart and the melted icecream lol I know all too well about the pregnancy hormones. They really do make you crazy. Your PPS may not even be that bad. Every woman is different. Speaking of, I've been meaning to do an update on my PPS post from back in September. 🙂 Keep baking that cupcake in the oven..Can't wait to see the little empress 😉

  • Lala says:

    Geesh! Your thin woman. Nothing but belly :). Anywho, your hair looks ultra healthy. I doubt your hair will fall out when the baby comes…at least hoping that for you lol, but than again it would make for a good blog post lol

  • Muz says:

    Normally cashiers direct you to another lane if you're in the 10 items or less line and you have more than 10 items. That woman in front of you should be ashamed of herself. I would have put the stuff down and gone to a REAL grocery store.

  • Anonymous says:

    LOL. You should print all your stories out and put them in your baby book.

  • naturalnurse04 says:

    I totally feel your pain. I'm 33.5 weeks and I cried in Briggs last weekend because they forgot to put cheese on my eggs. The hormones are CRAZY! I think I saw you at childbirth class a couple of weeks ago! :o) You look great girl!

    Don't feel bad Nikki! I've had several episodes of tears when I was pregnant and it didn't matter who was watching or looking! Honey child, I cried while watching commercials! LOL! Girl, you and your hair are looking good! Be blessed!

  • SweetThang says:

    Sorry you had a bad day at Walmart. OMG! It doesn't look like you have much longer before the baby gets here. And you're having a girl, too!?!?. I know you been visiting Beads, Braids, and Beyond and Happy Girl Hair for ideas on how to do her hair.

  • Noma says:

    You look great Nikki. I hope I'll look like you when I'm 8.5 months pregnant. I'm currently 4 months, and not showing yet.

    You cracked me up with that Wally World story, but I'm sorry that lady in front of you was rude. I wish I was there to fight with her for you.

  • Perkisha says:

    Aww @ Wally World story! That lady who was in front of you was rude as hell, smh. You deserved a good cry (and extra fudge) after that one 🙂

  • ValeriesWorld says:

    Nikki, you look beautiful! Use castor oil, on on your scalp, that should prevent any shredding, if some does occur, make a dark tea rinse, 5 black tea bags, or 5 teaspoons of coffee in a cup add boiling water, allow to infuse until cool and pour over your hair, ensuring you rub on your scalp.

  • latasha says:

    i'm not preggo so i haven't experienced wacky hormones…but as i tell my niece when she's mad about something, just cry and let it out. people may look at you funny, but screw them, they probably want/have cried before in a public place

  • mood_indigo says:

    I'm not laughing at you but LOL! I completely understand though. I hate Wally World as well and each time I go I am reminded of why. I hope the oreo sundae made it all better!

  • honeysmoke says:

    Okay, I think we are officially on Curly Nikki Baby Watch! Now, she may decide to sit tight until week 40, but she will done cooking long before that. In other words, she will just be getting fat and prolonging your labor. 🙂

    I, too, avoid WM, and I've had my babies. Can't believe that woman wouldn't help you out, and all those folks in line should have let you go to the front. Mothers know what those last weeks are like and usually have a heart or something. Yes, from now on the hubby can go to WM.

    By the way, what's going to happen to the blog while you're taking care of your little one? I, for one, don't expect you to post. You're going to schedule some stuff for a few weeks, right?

Cause when it's over people forget about Mommy, all that spoiling goes right out the window, and the focus turns to baby! lol. But Walmart….can be the worst for anyone, let alone, a pregnant woman on a mission!:)
    If I was there I would have said something to console you, cause I know how it is….tough sometimes! But you wear it well, you look beautiful, and sooner than you know it, your beautiful bouncing baby will be here! Take Care!

    haha Nikki,

    Love your wally story – I haven't dared stepped foot in that store (I am 39 weeks now) I am popping anytime now and have cried so many times. I avoid lines, crowds and heat (stay very close to the AC) – because am a walking waterfall 🙂
    Good luck with the remaining time 🙂

    Nikki you definitely are a beautiful preggo!! Your hair looks great. The postpartum shedding never happened to me after I had my daughter, as a matter of fact, my hair grew more. Hopefully, yours will do the same.

    SN: I understand the whole walmart episode. I was the same way towards the end of my pregnancy. Actually, it was worse, I cried everyday because I got tired of being pregnant and I was soooooo pregnant, lol.

    LOL – poor prego hormonal lady!!! I understand – that kind of thing gets me heated and I am not even pregnant. The cashier was indeed at fault – they are supposed to tell the individuals that their lanes are for 10 items or less and stick to their guns.

    Poor hubby. I cried once while preggers with the now 4year old because hubby made me a pb&j with too much peanut butter. LOL – at month 8 he should have mastered how to make a pb&j according to the crazy hormonal lady's specifications!
    Hang in there – it's almost over! 🙂

    This is why I only shop at Target…

    Oh wow look at you mommy! I dont think your gonna make it 5 full weeks. Some reason I get the feeling we will get the "I had the baby update" post sooner rather than later. 🙂

    Aww how exciting. Your hair looks fabulous as usual. Have you figured out what to do with your hair during delivery?

    Congrats again!

    Its almost time already?! Wow time went by quick! The story is funny now I see what I have to look forward to lol, your hair is goregous as always. And you should have slapped that woman who jumped in front of you, I'm not even pregnant and I still hate that

    You look GREAT! Time is flying by! Isn't the pregnancy volume AWESOME!?!? The post-partum shedding is equally as BAD! I'm just starting to recover from my daughter born in Dec. I have a similar "Walmart story" except it was with the restaurant inside the Doubletree hotel when the hostess told me that I couldn't get milk for my daughter's instant oatmeal pack that I'd brought with me from home and instead had to use hot water. It resulted in me having a meltdown on the elevator back up, and sobbing to my husband, who felt helpless, but went to the hotel general manager in my defense for an apology…These last weeks are going to FLYYYY by! Thanks for the update!

  • Kanisha says:

    I'm not even pregnant but I probably would've reacted the same way as you!

    Mostly because I suffer from anxiety and just reading this makes me want to freak out! LOL! (I'm laughing but I'm serious.)

    Also, I worked at a Super WalMart for 6 months. I was fired for some dumb mess! At the time I was totally devastated. But now I'm totally thankful to God because those were the worst six months of my life!

  • Imani says:

    Oh Nikki! I feel the same way about WalMart stores. I refuse to go after 10AM. I've had many a stare-down with people that shop in that store. It is absolute chaos. I'm sure I've cried a couple of times too– and I'm not even pregnant!

    Anyway, you look beautiful and your hair is looking great these days. I can't believe it's almost time to welcome your beautiful baby. Keep us updated 😀

  • Dani says:

    AWWW Nikki. Don't you hate hormones?? I have not been preggo before, but when my monthly is near, I've felt the same. Goodness knows what it'll be like when I do become preggo. I'm loving the updates, and you look beautiful!!

    I'm with the above poster! I can't believe time has gone by so fast. You look great, amazing even. Keep up the good work and you'll be walking out of the hospital in your pre-pregnancy clothes. Your Wally World tale is too funny! It happens to the best of us.

    Best Wishes,
    Dawn

    Wow, you're already 8.5 months! It seemed like you were only 5 months just yesterday. You look so cute in the pic!

    The crying story is funny. We have all been there. I cried when I was pregnant with DS because we didn't have any sour cream for taco salad. I was a mess.

    Postpartum shedding is no joke. Goodluck with that. Your hair looks beautiful in the pics!
