  • COMPLETELY NORMAL. After the baby comes, growth usually slows again. One good waxing of the lower belly put mine back on track after delivery. I haven't had to do it again.

  • Totally normal. When I was pregnant, I used to pluck the hair from my belly with a tweezer because I hated it! It went away after my kids were born.

  • You have always grown hair there, you just didn't notice because you would shed it. During pregnancy, you don't shed hair, it just accumulates. You will notice after you give birth that you lose a TON of hair because your body kicks back into shedding mode so the 100 hairs a day that you normally shed goes all at once.

    you won't be bald.

  • Yup, my belly got really fuzzy when I was pregnant, I'm lucky it was all blonde. Don't shave it or it will change texture and get darker. I did that with the trail below my belly button and now I have to shave or pluck it. :(
