to cut or not to cut?

short hair a little while ago... not the best pictures, but whatever.
maybe a little like this?
or just trim it up a couple of inches... and get my bangs back...

Hi Courtney! My name is Kayleen Perry and I was actually in the singles ward with you for a while before you got married! I think you may know my sister Crystal as well. ANYWAY, I tracked down your photography site and I'm trying to get ideas on who's available and prices on photography! I'm getting married on July 18th. Are you still doing weddings? If you are would you mind emailing me? My email is Kayleen.n.perry@gmail.com Thanks so much!

I love your hair long but I think you would look cute no matter what. One thing to thuink about it that after the baby comes you'll want to be able to put it in a pony tail.

Yeah. Either way you're a doll... But I couldn't wait to chop mine after having Hylton. Babies always seem to grab it when you're feeding them or carrying them around. It's like a magnet! I think you'd look super hot in that Kristen Dunst coif.

I was actually admiring your hair the other day at women's conference. Is it naturally wavy like that? I think it is pretty either way.

here's my thoughts (although you'll look hot no matter what!). keep it long now, perhaps get the side bangs. Love it while you have the time and energy to do it. And then right before the baby comes, chop it shorter because you're going to be too tired to want to do your hair all the time. All you'll be wanting to do is smooch your sweet little man and sleep. :)

So whatever you decide to do with it, I think you should leave it long enough to put it in a pony tail. Towards the end of my pregnancy, and after Mylee was born, it was great to be able to throw it back when I was in a hurry. I cut my hair short 4 months after she was born, but it wasn't easier at all. A lot of people say to cut it short after you have kids because it's easier. Maybe that's the case with other people, but it wasn't with me because I had to spend more time blow drying it so I could style it. If I didn't, it would flip out in some places. When it was longer, I didn't have to style it while I dried it so it was faster.
SO that's my long response!
To sum it up, it was much easier to have it long enough for a pony tail at first. In fact, I'm growing mine out now because it was too much of a hassle when it was short.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

I say cut it! :) Your hair looks great both ways. My own experience with babies and hair is this: he grabs it and it is in his face even if I have it up in a pony tail because it is so long. I think it should be long enough that you can do a short pony tail or a half-up do. Then he won't grab it and it won't fall in your face. Plus, it always grows back (and yours grows back fast!)

I need to go cut mine...

I love it! I wish my hair wasn't so curly other wise I would do the same thing. You look great!

you're a freakin' hottie! You could shave your head bald and you'd still be smokin'. I'm actually wondering what the heck to do with mine. I like it long, but I want a change, so I may do the whole Jennifer Aniston long bob thing. I wish I could get those loose curls like you have. I can't figure it out. My hair is sort of wavy, so it would be nice to know how to make it look like I made it wavy on purpose instead of the ugly random kinky waves. Blah, blah, blah, you're cute

See, I told you your hair looked amazing at women's conference. My favorite hair on you is the last picture where you look like a Ralph Lauren model.
Don't cut your hair short when you're pregnant! I have made that mistake with all three pregnancies (something about being pregnant makes people want to cut their hair). Even though you will still look hot you will wish you could put your hair up in a pony tail.
