    ...or am I just turning into a yeti?? I just heard these stories that if you're carrying a boy the testosterone can cause you to get more hairy. Any of you ladies who had babies in the past - have you noticed anything like that???

    I'm hairy too!!!! I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE!!!... God I know it's not a nice thing to be a hairy lady but I'm so please I'm not alone on this!!! =D.. I hope that's true.. If it is then I've defiantly got a boy on order lol.. I have heard though that if you have a lot of heartburn then you're going to have a hairy baby (born with like alot of hair on it's head not hairy like a yeti lol) xx

    I've noticed much more hairgrowth just under my belly button, also other areas need to be trimmed and pruned more regularly than before :haha:

    Oh but I can't leave it all hairy, some of them look really dark and then when I go for a swim to the gym it's gonna be a freakshow. You've scared me now that I'll always have a hairy belly...:dohh:

I pluck out some really dark ones but im leaving the rest :) Its strange, think my lady area is growing more quickly too but ive not noticed any hair anywhere else. Im having a girl :) Think some of us just get hairy and super sexy!! HAHA!
