This last week has been really uncomfortable and mostly because i am sooooo itchy! Being a hairstylist, I am used to finding hair everywhere in my clothes. Sometimes i'll wash them and they are still there. The worst however, are the hairs that poke at me from my bras (those never come out, even in the wash, unless I manually take them out of use a sticky roller) and the ones that are rubbing against my belly. It is bad enough that the skin is already itchy from stretching, and sensitive, but this has been excruciating! I am going through so may of those sticky rollers and by the end of the day I am ready to rip everything off. I told the husband that if i could wear sweatpants and no bra for the rest of the pregnancy i would. It may turn some people off, not to mention clients, but I am seriously considering it!
