Goody Simple Styles Pony Pouf Clip Review
Hola Chicas!

Time is ever so quickly winding down… I’ll be 37 weeks on Friday and the baby feels low (and though she feels as if she’s gonna fall outta my butt any second, I’m taking y’alls word that she won’t!). The nursery is complete, my bag is packed and dear family and friends will begin arriving as early as next week!

Strange new symptoms? Let’s see… since breathing is an activity I find quite enjoyable, I have to sleep sitting up, which I hate. Plus, if I happen to fall asleep laying down, I wake up with very painful cramps in my lower belly and back. So yeah, restful sleep is not happening and I’m so tired during the day. Also, one boob is noticeably larger than the other… but neither are big enough for me to purchase a nursing bra in my size. I’ve been to two Tarjays and a JcPenny and apparently I have very, very tiny breasts… maybe A cups aren’t supposed to breast feed? But dammit I’m gonna give it my all…hopefully the bigger boob (which I now call ‘my good boob’) will pull the weight! TMI?

Finally, I have a perfectly straight line running down the back of each leg (from my butt to my ankles). To the right of each line, my skin is very dark, to the left, it’s very light. So strange! And the kicker is that my mom said the exact same thing happened to her.

Anywho, on to my reason for this post. I tried the Goody Simple Styles hair clip tonight with great results! Here’s the description they provide:

Pony Pouf makes the “piece-y” pony so easy! Clever little styling tools and instructional guides to assist every woman in achieving a salon-inspired hairstyle at home.

I can see how this product really would deliver what the texture challenged community so desires. Volume. Since we curlies don’t have this problem, I truly questioned the reason for even trying it. Glad I did though! It’s yet another low stress, low tension way of securing the hair in a chic and easy style. Plus the design allows for ultimate poofage without the hassle of tying a pantyhose around your head. It sort of reminds me of a tiny, modified banana clip. It has two positions (the first for finer hair, and the second for thicker), and the comb portion on the top half makes it easy for you to fluff the hair up and intensify the volume of your puff.

I like it because it gives me the security of a pony tail holder (looped two or three times), with the volume of a pantyhose or goody headband secured puff. It’s easy to put in and remove– snagging and tearing is not an issue. Definitely another tool to add to your arsenal!

    Motherhood Maternity is the best place for nursing bras- I went in while still pregnant, they measured me and then told me what size I'd be when my milk came in- they were right on! So comfortable and a good fit- and only twenty bucks!

  • ALove says:

    Nikki, I'm an A cup also. When I breastfed my youngest daughter, I went up to a C or a D cup (can't really remember). Once that milk comes up, they will get bigger. Unfortunately, mine deflated back to an A cup once I stopped breastfeeding. : ~ (

    Oh, well. Thanks for the product review. I will definitely try it once my hair gets longer.

    I brought one nursing bra about a week before I delivered ( measured by the materinty store person to be a 38E) and by the time my milk came it that sucker didnt fit. I can wear it now that Im not nursing. The one clearance nursing bra I thought would be too big (40DD) fit perfectly throughout my whole year of nursing. My recommendation is to get one bra now and then wait til after your milk is in and steady to buy the others.

    umm, my A's only went to full B and I did find some bras at Motherhood Maternity. They have since gone back to A's, which I am absolutly fine with!

    Thanks for the clip review. I gotta get this and the spin pins! lol Hang in there…you're so close I know you can feel it! ๐Ÿ™‚ (hugs) ~KF519

  • Denise says:

    Hi CN-
    I'm two weeks ahead of you on the pregnacny tip and I must say that these last few weeks have been a litte rough. I consistently wake up at 4 every morning….not so fun. But I can't complain too much as I'm excited to meet my little boy.

    As for the hair clip…thatnks for the tip. I may go buy one b/c I'm trying to think of how'll I'll be wearing my hair in the delevery room. The clip seems like it may be useful to pull my hair up quickly.

    Good luck to you!

    OMG Nikki!!!The exact same thing happened to my legs! I thought something was wrong with me! I have fair to medium skin and the one side got darker and the other stayed light. It cleared up for the most part after I had my child but 10 years later when I had my second it popped back up again! Craziness!! I used to describe my legs as being the pantyhose with the seam down the back! LOL

  • Blondie says:

    Congrats on Lil Curly Young'un!

    I tried the spin doodads after I read your review and now I'm hooked!! Thanks!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOL -yes, I had itsy bitsy A cups prior to breastfeeding; but then… I went to D's in nursing bra's… Hubby OFTEN looked at them longingly, but then Baby Boy had DIBS!! LOL.

    The milk will come and the boobies will even out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Smile, it's almost over!

    Hi Nikki

    Sorry to hear you are having sleeping problems, well you are almost there. Cant wait to see the little one. If your milk supply is not coming, friends have you a herb called Fenugreek, to increase milk supply. Hope this help!!!!!!!

  • kimmie0810 says:

    Is it trifling that I'm going to buy this and the Spin Pin today, and I have about 3-4in of hair? It's like I forget I've cut all my hair off lol. But I'm sure it'll be back soon & I want to be ready!

    My curls used to be BSL & this thing would have come in super duper handy! I used to hate putting a band around my pony b/c it would never be poufy enough!

  • Dani says:

    When I do decide to have kids I hope I have 2 of those "Good Boobs". A's are cool..but I want that "C" Experience ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck to you with the baby. LOVE that you want to breastfeed, I encourage my clients to do it!!

    We await your big moment mama!!

  • Anonymous says:

    I have a theory that the smaller the boobs, the more milk they produce. My A cups produced enough milk to feed a small country, whereas I knew a lot of women with much larger chests, who had difficulty even meeting the needs of their babies – go figure!

  • CocoEuro says:

    awww..every pregnancy is different, I've had 3 and were ALL different but with my son I recall not being able to lay on my back or I'll be gasping for air! LOL! I too had to sleep sitting up!

    and as for breastfeeding! My milk did not come down till 3 days after delivery so I could not purchase bras until then! My boobies went from a B to a DD overnight!!!! I could have fed all the babies in Texas!!! LOL!!!

    Good Luck with the delivery!!! Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy, It's almost over!!! ; )

  • Tiffany says:

    Wow you sound uncomfortable. I hope that baby decides to make their appearance soon.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate

    YAY! for being full term on Friday! As my grandma would say, "won't be long now.!"Once your milk comes in, and boy will the flood gates open, you'll be JUST fine!!! Get your frozen beans ready to use as ice packs!! You should wait to buy nursing bras until your milk flow regulates. I totally agree that the lack of sleep and having to sleep upright, is truly preparation for the every 2-3 hour feedings…and that's the START of one feeding to the START of the other!! so by the time she feeds, burps, and gets that diaper change, you only have and hour – 1.5 hours before you are back at it again! But before you know it, you'll be able to lay on your side and she'll steer and latch on all by herself!!

  • mood_indigo says:

    Let me just say that I love you! You are hilarious! I'm sure both your "good" and not so good boob will be just fine once your milk comes in.

    I just had a baby in May, and like you I have those same lines!! They've yet to go away and my son is now almost 3 months! Lol. But they start at the back of my knee. Good luck on the coming birth, its all worth it ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Anonymous says:

    aww. I miss those days. my son is 13 months and sometimes I miss being pregnant. I slept sitting up also during my last month. This lack of sleep will prepare you for your mommy schedule. Waking up every 3hrs to breastfeed kills you but one day she'll be able to lay next to you and latch on on her own. There are so many mornings I don't even remember going to get my son. I just wake up with him nursing. The first 3 months are the hardest on your rest. CONGRATS!! Lil tip: when your in labor put your hair in a ponytail with a cute head band so you don't look stank in the pics. Oh and cabbage leaves for engorgement. Your milk will come in really fast and then it will re adjust as she feeds. Cabbage takes away the pain. Just buy a ball of cabbage and peel the leaves right off. Put them on your breasts while wearing your bra. change them when they become wilted. I know it sounds crazy but it works.

    I love your blog. Since I've been following you, I've had consistent growth and no damage. My hair has grown about 2 inches in the last 3 months. I attribute that to my consistent hair stretching,DEEP TREATMENTS with Jessicurl and cassia. My hair has never been this healthy. Thanx girl!!

  • the diva says:

    Yes mama us A-cups can still nurse. Oh, and guess what? My A-cups transformed into—wait for it—-C CUPS! I kid you not, hubby was overjoyed, in fact he still looks at the old pictures with longing. Yep I said looked back, cuz after the babies were finished nursing, so were my glorious C's. In fact, I think I may be double A cup now…. Oh the tragdedy of it all! They were never that enjoyable anyway, cuz anytime I tried to, uh, "use" them, they leaked all over the place. But hey they served their purpose, so I guess I shouldn't complain. Enjoy those C's when you get them!

  • Curlz of Luv says:

    The milk will come and alot of it rest assured. I slept upright with my feet elevated my last few weeks also, then after she came I slept upright holding her when nursing so just get use to it and get comfortable. It can be some really good sleep when you are tired. No matter what kind of bra it is just get a good supporting one and where it often, your breast will thank you later. You may need to purchase more than one size depending on how long you breastfeed. Drink lots of fluids (preferably water) it will help with the leg cramps and the breast milk.

  • Anonymous says:

    lol! Nikki you are hilarious, your 'good booby'. You'll be fine, I promise. It's almost over!

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    I have the boppy pregnancy pillow and side sleeping worked up until last week. Even with a pillow under between my legs and support under my belly, the cramps I get around 1am are ridiculous. They only go away if I sit on the yoga ball, or sit more upright to fall asleep. She's so friggin' heavy!

  • honeybrown1976 says:

    Yep, I picked one up at Walmart and I love it.

    As for your boobies, the milk will come in once she arrives. So, you'll probably still need to buy nursing bras. As for sleeping, there's no need to sleep upright. Take a pillow and put it in-between your knees and sleep on your side. It work for me during my two pregnancies.
