    according to myth and legend, or old wives tales if we are being precise this can be an indicator of a boy lol! Believed to be linked to increased testosterone - it's got at least a 50% chance of being right!

    Enjoy it hun, lots of women here would give their eye teeth to be able to complain about pregnancy symptoms! My fear is that I'm going to be reduced to hubby shaving my legs for me before I go into labour. God, the shame!!! I am dark haired so can't go too long without shaving my legs at the best of times and I don't care whether the midwifes aren't looking at my legs or not I will not go into hospital looking like a guerilla :rofl:

    Just grays too! I have notice about 5 grays that are only about an inch long which means they are new growth. I am 30. Have only ever had maybe one or two grays before.:cry:

    God bless these Boards. Just when you start to panic about something, so does someone else and you feel all nice and normal again! Yes !! Me too with the hair. Ugh. So gross isnt it. Just when you are feeling at your most feminine and you think your body is doing what women's bodies are designed for - they chuck some random hair in the way and make you feel horrid!

    Thanks for sharing and making me feel normal again girlies!! :happydance::muaha:

    I'm glad it's not just me.
    my top lip has gotten really dark, my tummy hair has increased in length, colour and quantity and the hair on my thighs has gone from being white and un-noticeable to thick and coarse it's horrid.

    i keep finding strays on my chin and the hair under my chin on my neck line also appear to be darker. one thing for sure the more you do to it the greater the chance it's gonna stick around after the pregnancy (ie don't shave facial hair) to i guess i'll need to look hairy for a while. sorry honey! :rofl:

    I'm not a hairy person.

    TMI but before I got pregnant, never grew armpit hair; had it in pregnancy.. now that I'm not pregnant, it hasn't been growing back at all either :)

    All this hairiness is soooo depressing! I've got a noticeable tash as well...... Horrible..... My eye brows are like that monobrow baby in the simpsons and my bikini hairs are growing at a frightening rate!! I'm going to the beauticians soon to sort out my tash and eye brows as I have a voucher for a lovely indian head massage so I'll have the torture done first and then relax with the massage. Heaven.............
