The day before I went into labor I had a hankering to braid the front of my hair. Thank God I did because literally the next day I was giving birth and my hair was totally braided up for my hospital stay. Perfect timing indeed.
The photo on the left is the back of my hair before I started braiding, and the one on the right is me at like midnight deciding to braid my hair up on a whim.
And BAM! Here I am all done at maybe 2AM (the morning I went into labor mind you).
They came out perfectly.
At this point I wasn’t sure how I planned on wearing my hair, just knew I wanted to braid it.
It’s a bummer I didn’t get this on video much (beyond my dark and blurry announcement video HERE).
In the end I decided to just do a replica of my “Dollop” updo’s front by twirling the front then pinning it down. The photo below may or may not have been taking while sitting in the OBGYN’s office waiting for them to tell me if my consistant contractions meant I was in labor.
Yeah so that day I had me a baby and was SO HAPPY my hair was braided up! Talk about perfect timing … woohoo!
