Okay ladies, what is YOUR hair doing???

Mine is growing like crazy! (good for my head, bad for my legs...) I've also lost any volume I had... which wasn't a lot. But it's soft and shiny.

Oh, and I notice my arm hair is getting longer. Also, there's a fine layer of soft hair on my stomach that's getting long. I'm so afraid I'll look like a soft, shiny, hairy monster by the end of this pregnancy!

I have dark down on my tummy too! And my "pleasure trail" that used to be short not-visible blond peach fuzz from my chest to navel is now dark also.

I can't tell about the hair on my head...I've been growing it out anyway. It is very soft, shiny, and has more volume, but I also just ditched shampoo and conditioner and started using my own homemade concoction. It's awesome and cheap if anyone wants to try.... baking soda mixed with warm water for "shampoo", and apple cider vinegar for a rinse. Just have to get used to it not sudsing up like shampoo.

The hair on my head has NO volume, it's limp and flat. Dull and lifeless. As well as frizzy especially up top at the crown. I don't even know how some of this is possible. I have naturally wavy hair.

I have some hair on my chest and stomach that even DH has noticed, the hair on my legs seem to grow back hours after I shave. None of it is blonde and barely noticeable anymore. And I found a few hairs under my chin a few days ago! I had to put the tweezers to work fast!

My hair is thicker and greasier. I'm afraid to wash it more though, for fear that it'll just keep getting worse and worse if I do.

My hair has stopped falling out! I've always shed like crazy and now it's very minimal. I wish I could keep this going forever. I'm afraid after birth it's just going to come out in chunks. lol

I think I'm losing less hair than normal. My hair just hasn't done right lately. I don't know if its the crazy summer weather or pregnancy. I can say that the hair growth on my legs has slowed waaaaay down!

I haven't really noticed a change in my hair. Now if I go a day without washing it, I do notice that it looks a greasy. The hair on my legs is growing faster than I remember it growing before.

My hair on my head is growing but Im trying to do that anyway. As for my legs, it has slowed WAY down. I love it because I don't have to shave near as often

Mine gets greasy really quick now, but it is growing like crazy and really thick which is great cause I have thin hair normally. I have dark fuzz under my belly button too but my leg hair grows so slow it is nice lol
