Hair cut time!!! This happened around this time with DD too, and it's in no way related to the weather. I just get this urge to cut it shorter. I'm feeling weighed down by hair, it's annoying me, and I just want it GONE. So next week I'm going to go in an do something about it. Problem is, I look terrible with short hair. BUT I will FEEL better, so whatever.

Anyone else get this urge?

Yup! I made my hairdresser promise she won't do it. I absolutely 100% know I won't like it, even though it will be sooooo much easier! My hair is so thick, I absolutely dread drying it in the summer (no central AC here), and it takes so long to dry 100% and then run a straightener through. But I know I won't like it, so I tell myself not to do it!

I normally keep my hair pretty short. I decided when I got pregnant, that I'd enjoy the nice hair growth and grow it out to at least ponytail length, since ponytails will be easy to do when I'm tired with baby stuff.

Its getting hot and my hair sitting on my neck is driving me crazy. Plus it's now at an awkward length where it doesn't want to do ANYTHING that I try to do with it.

I don't think I'm going to last much longer before I cut it all off again.

Yup, I just made an appointment for a cut on Saturday Last time she didn't cut it as short as I usually get it, so it's longer than I like it and it's bugging me, especially with the warmer weather. I thought about waiting until closer to my due date, but I'll just get a trim in a few months. I usually get mine about shoulder length, so I can still throw it up most days instead of having to do it everyday.

Just got it cut 2 weeks ago! lol. Did the same thing when pregnant with Erin, but resisted when pregnant with Patrick because I was growing it out to donate.

I just got four inches cut off this past Friday. Not a major change but it definitely feels better on my neck given the hot, humid weather. I had an urge to cut it shorter but reminded myself that being able to put my hair in a ponytail will be an asset once the baby gets here. My hair goes back and forth between being super short, really long and everything in between so cutting it short is no biggie to me.

I cut twelve inches off while pregnant with DS. Haven't regretted it for a moment. So now I just get the urge to get it cleaned up since it is still super short!

Yes, I think I'll get it cut in July. At least a few inches off and some style added to it so I don't feel as gross.

ohhh, I need a haircut so bad! I have thought about taking some length off, I have been everything from super short to super long when I donated 12 inches. I don't think I can bring myself to do super short because growing it out is painful.

Yes, but I know if I do that I won't be able to make a ponytail, which would be a pain in the summer!

I need a haircut desperately. Last time I had it cut was when I was around 12 wks, so it's been awhile. I don't want it short 'cuz I'll want a ponytail when baby comes. I've been wanting to make an appt, but we've been short on $ so I've been having to wait...

Nope, I did it with kaiya and I told her to keep it below the shoulders, Yeah that is exactly what she didn't do. This time I am trying to see how long I can get it. It's about to my lower back.

I'm really ready to cut mine, but I'll probably end up only getting a trim. Neely likes the long hair.
