Post subject: hairy
Hi ! Yeap ! It is normal ! I am 37+3 and luckily i am very fair so the hair is hardly visible to anyone but me. But i know its there! I have not shaved it in case it makes my tummy itchy and sore ( i have very sensitive skin ) but at least i do not reseamble a yeti too much !!!!!!! Having said that, i have't got the brown line down my tummy that alot of women get, so i am happy to put up with a furry tummy and hope it goes when the sprog arrives. XX

Hey it's funny you say this cos I just noticed this morning when I was speaking to my bump that i had a newly aquired hairy line down my belly!!! My husband was ribbing me and said i had my own treasure trail now!!!!! I don't think i'll shave it like cardea said cos of the senisitve skin and maybe it will come back in thicker? I looked in my baby book and it said a lot of the extra hair does go away after the birth xxxxx

If you think a few hairs on your abdomen is bad try having a bloody atlas on it...lol. I have strecth marks the size of the River Thames on mine!! To top it all I went to see my sil yesturday who gave birth 8 days ago and she showed me her completely flat strecthmark free stomach!!!!

Sorry Mylillamb I didn't mean to imply it would be wrong to shave it My belly is just in that itchy stretchy stage so i'm having to put cream on lots to stop me scratching it and making it sore and I think if i shave it too it'll be even more itchy for me. The sore looking stretchmarks I'm not looking forward to them at all!!!! xxx

Thank you Ladies.. For a bit there I was worrying. rofl. I thought i was turning into an ape or something
But yeah i know what you mean, i used to feel very sexy, considering how i used to be a dancer prior to the pregnancy, and now, I am gaining weight, and have a little bump. lol I wouldnt change it for the world.

Some days I feel that I look like i've been dragged through a hedge backwards no matter what I do and other days I feel so glamourous and my skin is lovely and my hair looks amazing.
I kind of feel sexier now that I have my bump actually but I think that's cos my husband keeps saying I look amazing and beautiful (I think he read it in a dad-to-be book though!!!! ) I'm sure you're all looking gorgeous and sexy! xxxxxx
