Hair and nails

So rumor has it your hair is supposed to stop falling out while you're preggo and your nails are supposed to be stronger than ever... ?? My hair is still falling out and my nails are constantly breaking. Anyone else like this?
DH is convinced this is a girl because with my last 2 pregs (both boys) everything was so different (including the hair and nails).

This girl right here! My hair falls out in handfuls in the shower and when I brush. My nails are eh...not too much breaking, but I tend to bite them :oops:

I don't remember my hair or nails being effected last time.. but I've always had very thick, strong hair and nails...

I hope it's a girl if that's what you want!! Biggrin

I still lost a lot of hair with Riley... but this time I don't loose as much.

oh, don't get me wrong. My hair is as thick and strong as horse hair. No matter how much falls out, it never thins. But pulling out handfuls of hair is very unnerving.

The pulling out in clumps I have actually noticed LESS of with this pregnancy!! Usually it's coming out in the pick in droves. Right now not so much. I like that! Lol
