Folically challenged

My body is still doing all sorts of strange things. I still have the heartburn and restless legs, but I noticed something new the other day. And it's the absence of something, not the presence of something new.

In most of the articles I've read about pregnancy, I've read that pregnant women grow hair in the strangest places. And apparently they grow lots of hair.

Well, if anything, I'm growing less hair. I rarely pluck my eyebrows anymore because the stragglers just aren't growing.

And shaving my legs? I honestly don't remember the last time I did, but it's got to have been more than a week and my legs are actually pretty smooth. That's pretty strange isn't it?

I also read that my hair would change texture or grow really fast. The texture certainly hasn't changed and it doesn't appear to be growing any faster than usual either. It might be shinier though.

Anyone else got weird hair stories?

Hey... I have the same weird thing going on with my leg hair too. I am 31 weeks (7 months) pregnant and I too have not shaved my legs in over a week, and yes... they still feel very smooth to me. As if I had shaved them two days ago. Strange!!

I wish I could say the same for my armpits. They still need their regular shave, but it's nice that the I'm making up time by not shaving. I spend that extra time rubbing lotions into the belly.
