nail growth

Before I became pregnant my nails use to grow extremely fast. Since I've became pregnant they hardly grow at all. Anyone else experience this?

  • Nope I was the exact opposite. My nails were never strong enough to grow long and when they did they would just break. But since Ive been pregnant and taking the prenatal vitamins they grow like crazy. Just like my hair!!

  • Nope i am the opposite. Mine grow slow and break easily. But when I am pregnant they are strong and grow fast.

  • In the beginning mine broke all the time and now they are pretty long and strong. Pregnancy can make nails brittle too. I did lose my eyelashes though which has never happened considering my hair is growing like crazy.
