My first pregnancy, with Mister Speed, my hair noticeably changed. It pretty much went to a stand-still, not-going-to-grow state. I didn’t have to shave my legs, no budgeting for hair cuts and that was a nice change for my usual ultra-thick, oh-gaw-please-cut-it before I scream hair. That was awesome — you know, until postpartum period when all my hair fell out in huge clumps — but that’s another story.
When I was pregnancy with both my girls, the opposite thing happened. My hair was growing faster, thicker and all over the entire pregnancies. I’m sure it wasn’t as traumatic as some mama’s get, but I was still shocked by it since I didn’t experience that with my first. I remember telling myself that it was only temporary, but still I hated it!
Turns out that’s not an uncommon thing in pregnancy. It’s so common in fact that Hilary Duff (who is currently pregnant with her first child) teamed up with Funny or Die to make a comedy-spoof product aimed at this trouble for pregnant women.
