Strange, but welcome side effect of pregnancy

Since I hit the second trimester, the hair on my legs and under my arms has almost completely stopped growing! I haven't had to shave in almost a month. I don't want to complain as this is kind of a welcome change, but I thought the opposite would happen??

Anyone else experiencing this or any other surprising changes which we don't normally hear about?

How crazy is that. I wish that would happen to me! Smile I just lose hair on my head at about 3 months PP.

This is so weird, but it happens to me as well.

I don't have any other super strange things happen to me. I could totally live without the acne though. Sad

I noticed a slowing-down of hair growth too. Although my fingernails and toenails are stronger than normal and growing extra fast, so who knows!

I get the 3-month postpartum hair loss too. Everyone does, right?

Armpit hair is growing, but leg hair is barely there LOL!
