We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Depression...

With a short post about something weird I've noticed.

I read about, and expected to experience, the typical extra hair growth during my pregnancy.  I don't know if it's because of the increased steroid dose because of the NCAH, or what, but I am experiencing the exact opposite.  I haven't shaved my legs in probably 8 weeks, and with the exception of a few soft whispy hairs around my ankles, my legs are completely smooth.  I have never been more than averagely hairy, but this is just weird!  The occasional hair that I would find near my belly button have all also disappeared.

Granted, I'm still plucking the occasional chin hair, and there has been no change under my arms.  Man, I have no sense of TMI anymore...

Crazy, right?



  1. I found in my third trimester my leg hair growth decreased ridiculously. It was kind of nice since I couldn't really see my legs to shave them anyway!

  2. I had a similar issue! Admittedly, I have one chin hair but when I got pregnant it stopped growing. After I gave birth it reappeared! The entire time I was pregnant I expected to become hairier than sasquatch but it never really happened.

  3. Nice! Not having to shave your legs is definitely a blessing in this case.
