I started growing some belly hair around 15 weeks pregnant with DS and it got DARK. I am a fair-skinned person with light hair and usually have no hair on my belly. I took it as a sign I was having a boy. The hair mostly went away after DS was born, some stayed but it turned blonde.<br><br>
A few days ago I noticed that the hair is back, and it's DARK! It makes me think this baby might be another boy. I wonder if the male hormones in my body cause the extra hair to grow?<br><br>
Does anyone else have hair on their belly? Did you have it with previous pregnancies? Did anyone have it and still have a girl? I'm trying to test out my theory <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

A physician whom I used to work with said she noticed that woman became hairier when they were carrying girls. She said leg hair, in particular, increased significantly in women who were carrying girls. I guess it doesn't help with your theory, but it is interesting! I had a boy last time, and no increase in hair. I'll see what happens this time!

A few days ago, I'm 11 weeks and a few days today. It's strange because I am a very un-hairy person and the hair I do have (on my arms and legs) is blonde. This belly hair is dark brown, almost black <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> It's pretty thin - I don't have a bush growing on my belly, but it still looks out of place.

Ok I'll jump in here, last pregnancy with a boy I noticed some darker hairs on my belly. Nothing crazy but they weren't there before and went away after. I didn't notice it the first time so I'll see if I notice anything this pregnancy!
