Cosmetics during.. LABOR!?

Am I whacko in wanting to look half decent while pushing out a baby?

Honestly, is it just me? I mean I don't need my hair and nails done.. but I want to feel good while I am in the hospital.. whenever I feel good things seem to feel better all around.. isn't that true?

Ladies.. did you have a dash of make up on when you delivered? Did you have your nails painted? Had you showered?

I want to know! ha​

        Hmmm.....somehow it just wasn't important to me....maybe with my first since I was still wearing make up almost every day back then.

        I do remember getting compliments on a photo I have after giving birth to my fourth child, first son who was 9 lbs 8 oz. For some reason I looked good, but honestly I didn't do anything. lol! I don't think I had brushed my hair, it just fell back into place because it was a shorter bob style and I didn't have any makeup on.

        Now if visitors were coming, that's a different story.

        In my personal opinion, having make up on during labor would only get smudged with the sweating, crying (after wards) and I always had a cold, wet wash cloth to wipe my face, forehead and neck with because I had these hot flash type things during contractions and needed to cool down. Even my hair got messed up because I'd run the cloth over my bangs and back.
