If your on prenatal vitamins...

Are you noticing your nails growing at like a super sonic rate?
I'm a nail biter and my nails are still growing like crazy, I'm so happy! Maybe I will be able to stop biting my nails! lol

  • It's the pregnancy, not the vitamins. Yes, your nails (and hair) are growing faster, because your body has more growth hormone than usual in it.

    You also stop losing hair until the baby's born, which is why you'll notice huge hair loss in the first few weeks after birth --it's normal and just catching up from the hair you didn't lose while pregnant.
