Mamas pregnant with boys...crazy hair growth?! - Page 2

Mine is the first to point out when my chin needs a pluck.  He really needs the chin not to have any stray hairs.  They have certainly vamped up growth for pregnancy.

The few stray hairs around the areola used to be a two second pluck job but now....  shake.gif  It's just depressing!!!!  I counted around 30 on each breast.  The chest/tummy situation is fine but the boob thing makes me depressed.

If anything the hair growth has slowed down, a lot. The hair on my legs seems thinner and I don't have to shave my underarms as frequently. I think I'm losing less hair when I brush too. But my nails are growing like crazy, I have to clip those every other day now!

I am a generally very hairy girl, so much so that many doctors have diagnosed me as having PCOS - which I don't think is true because I don't have any of the other symptoms and I think they are just trying to pathologize hairiness.  I haven't had more than a few stray areola hairs so far...but since college I've been having to tweeze/wax a fair amount of coarse hair off my chin and neck.  It used to mess with my self-worth and sense of femininity a lot more, but I finally just came to the conclusion that it is the way I am and I can't do anything to change it and I'd rather not live my life totally brought down by something that is just the way I am.

There is a really good art film from Argentina called the Dark Side of the Heart with a scene where the main character is picking up a woman who has a mustache at a bar and goes off on a monologue about how women with mustache's are the best because the excess testosterone that causes the mustache also makes them wild in bed.  So whenever I'm feeling down on my body hair, I think about that and try to flip it, haha.

Well I've been doing laser treatments for a couple years (every 4 months or so) for armpits and bikini area anyway, so I guess after pregnancy I'll just add the around-the-areola to the list if the hairs persist and hope that it can be permanently eliminated that way.

 

I'm simply willing to pay the bucks in order to have less body 'maintenance' on a weekly or monthly level.  I have no patience for inspecting my body for areas in which to shave or tweeze.  Bah!  me lazy.  It's so much easier to wash my hair and body, and after shower add coconut oil everywhere, and just be DONE in terms of *necessary* beauty/hygeine stuff.  Then the blow dry with the round brush and makeup is only if I'm going somewhere special where I want to look my best, but on a daily basis, I'm happy with just the shower and coconut oil, and I feel attractive enough to try to seduce my fiance without feeling self concious.  

 

We have only 2 month summers here so I do shave my legs during that period, but not the rest of the year when I wear only pants or tights.
