Hair not growing... at all? maybe tmi?

So my hair is not growing at all. I got my hair cut about a month before I got pregnant. I am 20 weeks today and I started noticing my hair wasn't growing around 9 or 10 weeks so I have been measuring and sure enough it has not grown even a centimetre.

Also the hair on my body is not growing. I have not shaved my legs for about a week and as of today I finally have some small prickelys (about what it would be 1-2 days after you shave). I am starting to get concerned and I do not know what to do. Do I call my doctor, is there something I can take, is this happening to anyone else?

I take my prenatals regularly every morning at 8 and have been eating healthy no fast food,no soda, watching what I have been eating and drinking.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

That is really strange...my hair grows like CRAZY from my prenatals. Do update if you find out why. I'd call your doctor. It doesn't sound like anything urgent, but still you probably want to know whats up.

For me my hair will grow like crazy but my legs and armpits I have to shave less when pregnant. Which is fine with me. Especially my legs. It could be the way your body is reacting.

Talk to your Dr/Ob/Midwife the next time you see them and see what they say.

 My hair growth was slower when I was pregnant with my boys, I barely ever had to shave.

 my hair didn't grow when I was pregnant with DS1, started growing after I had him. Then when I got pregnant with DS2 I kid you not, I went 8 weeks at a time without having to shave my legs or armpits...but the hair on my head grew like crazy. He just turned a year old and I can still go a couple weeks without having to shave.

The same thing is happening with me my hair before i was pregnant took years to grow anything and i thought after getting pregnant the growth pattern would change, but it hasn't. it was funny, actually just yesterday i was talking with my boyfiend asking him how hairy my armpits were, because my vision has gotten alot worse and i didn't know if i was seeing it right. it has been a month now since i have shaved anywhere on mybody and my arms are stillsmooth as if i had done it 10 mins ago and my legs and armpits are just past the prickly stage.

Pregnancy does weird things. I wasn't either except for my stomach. I had a furry belly!

When I was pregnant with my son I never had to shave my legs or pits (maybe like once a month instead of daily) but this time around I feel like a wooly mammoth!
