Yes! My hair has been shedding and doesn't seem to b growing as much as I thought it would. Def doesn't look any better than it did before I got prego. And my skin is dry and I'm breaking out like crazy!! I look way worse than I did before I got pregnant.

Im on the same boat. They said that pregnancy will make you look blooming and that your hair will be at its best like looking shinny and growing fast. Well i beg to disagree. I seldom have pimples and never had dry skin but when i got pregnant i started to experience having dry skin and pimples are everywhere! Oh did i mention my hair? I think im going to be bald in no time because of shedding.

Lolol yea i had the dry skin and breaking out but luckily thats pretty well gone just my hair i slightly pull over it after i shower and so much comes out and after i straighten it ill have so much on my lap. And i take prenatal vitamins every day. Maybe after i have my baby girl itll all restore what ive lost so far

My nails are growing like crazy but my hair seems the same which is a bummer.

I didn't notice a difference until afterwards with my first pregnancy.

Jesska maybe its cuz we r having girls.... Lol. A myth I did hear was that when u have a girl they take ur beauty away! Maybe they will just b extra gorgeous! ;)

I fully believe that myth about girls. My hair sheds and sheds now and I've been doing my usual routine! And my skin just peels and random black heads have started appearing which is out of the norm for me. And im 31 wks and it just seems to be getting worse.

Prenatals is a good start. If u read the label it doesn't give u all the nutrients your body needs. The baby is taking ur nutrients. Try a hair supplement like biotin.  Also eat more fruits and veggies. Spinach will harden your nails and make ur hair shinny. Eat 3-6 cups a dat.
