Did you get more body hair when pregnant with a boy?

I've heard this is true but I've always been really hairy and pregnancy seems to make my body hair fall out. I now look fairly normal. What has been your experience with body hair growth and pregnancy?

  • Everyone always tells me this is an old wives tale...but all I know is that I did not have any damn facial hair until I got pregnant with my son, now I have to pluck little hairs off of my face all the time and it's gross!
