Hi Girls,

The growth of the hairs on my legs has really slowed down, it's great....has this happened to any of ye and do you think this is a sign of a girl?

Hi - me too! It went into overdrive for the first 12 weeks but since about week 14 it has slowed loads

However 20 week scan shows I am having a boy? So not sure on that theory -sorry!

This happened to me in both pregnancies - I have one girl and one boy!

And 3½ years after the last one the hair still hasn't grown back properly.

(is this quite a common occcurence then?)

i shaved my legs on Thursday and they are still so smooth, normally would have to be doing them again by now! Im 12+3. This is my 3rd pg but first time this has happened.

The hair growth on my legs really slowed down in my 3rd pregnancy and she was my only girl,but it's probably a coincidence judging by seasides post.

It's funny cos the hair on my head is growing'ld still wonder if the old wives tales are true though!

Yes me too and co-incidentally we have just been discussing this on the due dec thread so it must be fairly common!

I've only just realised I haven't shaved my legs since last week, and they don't even need a trim yet. How weird. Normally I have to shave them every other day, otherwise I look like a wild woman. Ooh what a bonus.
Mind, my eyebrows have gone haywire to make up for lack of leg hair. I really should go to a beauty salon and get them waxed or something. Can anyone recommend eyebrow waxing? Is it torture? I'm rubbish at shaping them myself - I always end up with one bigger than the other.
