On Monday night this happened:
I got my nose pierced!
I’ve actually wanted to pierce my nose since college, but my college (where I attended and where I now work) has a “no facial piercings” policy so I’ve never been able to. BUT I realized that maternity leave would allow ample time for my nose to heal – when I return to work I can put in a clear spacer on the days I am in the office. Of course, I made sure to clear this with my midwife first. She admitted that nobody has ever asked her before but she was okay with it as long as I got it done at a professional, clean place.
Dave was super excited for me to get this done and worked it out so we could do it Monday after my last day in the office!
The piercing itself didn’t hurt at all, which surprised me. It stung/ached afterwards, but by the next morning felt totally fine. I’m totally in love with it and thrilled – after all these years – to have it!
(In terms of how I picked a side, I chose the left because the right side is where I had some skin cancer removed. You can’t even see the mark from that, but I thought it was better to play it safe in case there was scar tissue present.)

Yeah… there is nothing cuter than that!
