I'm 11 weeks pregnant and in the past week or so I've noticed that the hairs around my belly button have got quite dark! Has anyone else come across this?

Hi Sarah.... I am not experiencing this but I can tell you it is normal... my neice is 4 months and she has gotten this and it is because of the hormones she was told. She actually has a line of dark hair running down her stomach all the way down. It will go away she has been told.

It's just so weird and I'm fair haired and not a particularly hairy person (normally)! Glad to know I'm not the only one out there turning into a hairy monkey!

You know what I have noticed? All my body hair is like growing hella faster than normal. Not necesarily my tummy hair but I swear I shave my legs and pluck my eyebrows and the next day I look in the mirror like woah! Its weird and I was told that was completely normal because of hormones. I figure anything goes down blame it on hormones! LOL

i know what you mean. Not only is the hair growing faster, it seems to be growing LONGER. the hairs on my tummy were 1/4 of an inch at most, and they're getting closer to an inch long now (it's SO gross). This happened to me with my first baby too, and it went away, but the worst part was the bigger i got, the more the hairs stood straight outwards! it made it impossibly itchy because they would poke through my shirts! I found it helped it i cut them (not shave, just sort of trim). LOL, welcome to pregnancy i guess!

Hi lilmum, just out of curiosity, did you have a boy or girl last pregnancy? I've heard that this could mean a surge in testosterone and mean I'm having a boy?!


lilmum - April 9

as a matter of fact i did have a little boy.
