I have this nasty habit of chopping off all my hair either just prior to having a baby or just after. I regretted it both times. When you're a new mom, the ponytail can be your best friend. I pretty much live in a ponytail. I see women with short hair and I think to myself, "what is the point of having long hair if I keep it back all the time? I should just chop it off." It makes sense at the time. Then after cutting it, I realize that with short hair (especially when it's curly like mine) you actually have to DO your hair every single day. That is why a ponytail rocks. So please, if I mention to you that I'm feeling the urge to cut my hair, remind me that I'm a complete idiot and I should just leave it alone.
ps. I have lost 18 lbs in the last 6 days. That makes up for being so uncomfortable for the last several months!!
