I've been MIA for 5 months?! (*shame*) - Reason: I'm Preggers!!! :-D

Hey There Ladies!
It's been so long! I have missed you guys so much!

 I've kept up with my reading of my other hair blogs and vlogs - Yayness!!! Jeni from justgrowalready.com, Traycee from Kiss and Journeytowaistlength have all gone Natural! Wow!
I'm so happy to learn that you guys still stop by to have a look at my blog despite my silence,

The reason I've been MIA for so long is because - well as the title says,

*Another 4 days until the 7-Month-Mark*
Lol, please excuse the deer-in-the-headlights look!!

I am so happy and grateful, but at the same time I've been very cautious about announcing, it's my first baby bumpkin and I am a very cautious and private person
 AND, I have been battling and still am battling some wicked Nausea and vomiting!!!
Serious ting!
 Woiii, crackers are my best friend...
Ahhhh dear, Lol!
Long and short, it has not been easy,

So much so... I have found it very difficult especially May- July/Early August to follow my normal hair regimen - just brushing my hair made/makes me tired.
So, on June 6th 2015, I went ahead and cut my relaxed ends off and I think some Texlaxed hair - bringing me to below SL and above APL.

 Thankfully I had a mini growth spurt to APL...

How did I feel about the chop???
I was so out of it - I didn't even care - it was a relief to have less hair to deal with!!!

Shocker.... brace yourselves - I did not deep condition for 2 months!

All I could manage was cowashing once every 2 weeks - bunning and airdrying...

The struggle was real.

Because my hair was so neglected - I've been having quite a lot of breakage - le sigh, Unfortunately right now I can't seem to tolerate overhead dryers or heat caps for deep conditioning...

I don't like the smell of my conditioners...
The scent of my some of my leave ins, shampoos conditioners would make me nauseated...
But all is not lost - I just have to get creative again that's all!!

Hair Journey Update - ADJUSTMENTS for Preggerzness are currently being made!

I'll be posting the very skeletal regimen that I use soon, and honestly if you guys have any suggestions for hair products I can or should use in pregnancy I would LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU! Leave the suggestions and comments below!

As for the post that I was going to put up about my Hairstyle below:

I'm so sorry that I haven't gotten to post it as yet - and it seems I may have lost some pics - but worry not - I'm heading out this evening to get some supplies so that I can start a fresh and have that post for you also this week!

Thanks you guys for stopping by,
big hugz to you all!!

Rachie :-)
