Yes, that's right, Bajan Lily is pregnant; our two youngest will be 18 months apart - which will be fine when they're older than 2 but bodes for a rather interesting journey in between.
We've had our first for ages, but it feels like in such a small space of time we've gone from having just the one, (and subsequently spoiling her rotten with gadgets and holidays) to having three. It still scares me...
What also scares me is the effect this will have on my hair - why? Well, I have shared with you the mystery that was my hair falling out at the front shortly after my SisterLocking session; my angst and panic as I watched locks thin at the root; and my despair as some fell off. I am now in the recovery phase (I'll take some photos to show you).
<< remember these posts? the pictures make it very clear.... see post and comments at 'The Freak Out'and Calming Down >>
Basically, if you look at the the base of those 'fragile' locs, you will see a fairly stout healthy root... an inch or two up and you come across a skinny skinny skinny section (where the hair had come away from the root) and travelling onwards towards the end of my hair you will again find a fairly thick section. Kinda like an hour glass with an elongated abdomen... so my hair has recovered and is growing strong again.
With another baby on the way, it is highly likely that I will face the same scenario all over again... growth spurts, hair loss, recovery... I am not relishing the thought of losing any of my hair let alone losing entire locs...
Guess I'll keep you posted.
