And I know I'm not alone, because I can hardly log into Facebook or Instagram without seeing someone holding a brand-new baby.
So I completely understand why so many women choose to get their hair cut or blown out just before their due date, get a mani-pedi, or spring for false eyelashes. And I'm not a the least bit surprised that many choose to put on a little makeup and brush their hair before the cameras start snapping.
After all, if my 900 closest friends are all going to see these photos, I'd rather look a little put together.
Nobody tells you on your wedding day or when looking at your wedding photos, "This day is supposed to be about MARRIAGE! Why are you focused so much on your hair and dress and flowers?" Nobody snarks on a bride who gets a mani-pedi the week of her wedding or takes her bridesmaids to get their hair and makeup done before the ceremony.
