There's hair EVERYWHERE!
Pregnancy can make your body do really weird things. I wonít even go into the darker nipples or the linea negra. Instead, weíll discuss hair.
When you think of a pregnant woman, I bet you donít think of someone covered in hair, do you? Well, you should!
We all know that pregnancy makes the hair on your head grow faster and less of it falls out. But, did you know that the hair on your legs stops growing as fast as it did?
Thatís a good thing. If youíre anything like me, you donít have the energy to lean down and shave your legs every day. (Of course, once you have a newborn, youíll probably go months without shaving, but thatís a different story altogether.)
Although I enjoyed having to shave my legs even less than I normally did, it seemed as if all the hair traveled from my legs up to my belly. Yes, my belly, the part of me that everyone wanted to touch. The part of me that jutted out much further than should be allowed.
Covered. In. Hair.
Iím not saying I looked like a wooly mammoth, but the amount of hair on my belly easily rivaled (or surpassed) the amount on my arms. Instead of the perfectly round, hairless bellies you see on TV or in ads, I had a big round, hairy lump with an off-center linea negra.
Iíd like to believe I could have won some sort of sexy swimsuit competition with my belly, but I doubt thatíd happen. That is, unless they have those sorts of things in really dark rooms.
