Where have I been?

9 Dec

baby shoes

I’m sure many of you have been wondering where I have been.  I have been blogging quite eratically for most of this year.  Well the reason is that I was pregnant!  I gave birth to a baby boy about a week ago.  The baby and I are doing well and getting used to each other.  After my monthly update post,  I will take a short break and give the baby my full attention.  I will be back to normal blogging in January 2014.

My pregnancy is the main reason why my last relaxer was just over a year ago.  As with my previous two pregnancies, I stopped relaxing my hair.  This is just a personal choice I have made – not to relax my hair while pregnant.  Now that I have had the baby I will probably relax it again  in January.  Let’s see how it goes.

I will be on the lookout for any postpartum shedding.  I will let you all know if it does happen.

  22. Tinashe 10 December, 2013 at 8:01 am #

    Hey Congrats Tendayi. I gave birth to a baby boy three months ago too so i know the joy of it all. Was just amazed by the coincidence that whilst i was pregnant i also made the decision to stop relaxing my hair! I have decided to be natural for the time being and i will see how it goes but will keep reading your blog because you always give sound advice. So far no post partum shedding so fingers crossed that it will stay like that. Enjoy the baby see you in 2014.

    • Tendayi 10 December, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

      Congratulations to you too Tinashe. You’re really fortunate about not having any shedding yet. Hope it stays that way. Im a bit nervous about the prospects of shedding. I know some women even get bald spots on their head.
