We’re used to hair in all the usual areas like our pits, legs, and nether regions, but pregnancy can have us sprouting hair in places we never expected, thanks to all the hormones surging around in our system. Some of us have found ourselves shaving our faces or our entire stomach.
On the flip side, pregnancy offers us the gift of glorious hair on our heads. Our locks tend to grow faster and longer, giving them a thicker appearance because of the extra estrogen boost altering the fallout cycle, keeping strands in the growth stage for longer. We aren’t going to complain about this one.
