Hairy Belly

I'm 20 weeks pregnant and I realized more hair than normal on my belly it's not much that I have to cut it but my question is anyone had a hairy belly and had a girl?

Hairy belly can happen during pregnancy
I'd recommend not shaving because you risk.irritating your thinning skin.

The hairs will usually go away after preg. Sometimes they stick around.

Do not shave. I had a hairy belly with my first he's a boy and I shave a patch and it came back black luckily when I'm not pregnant it doesn't grow back lol. Also have a very fluffy tummy this time and it's a girl. I would say it's more fluffy this time round tho and I don't have the black line down my tummy.

I have such a hairy belly, my hair grows back extremely fast, Im finding myself shaving my armpits every day and legs every 2nd! And I am having a baby girl! My doctor has said that girls do cause this more commonly than boys because of the mass amount of hormones in your body since you are carrying hers and your own, yet it is possible to have this same hair growth with a little boy, just less common! And don't worry about shaving your hairy belly or waxing/bleaching it will go away within a few days of your baby being born!

Do not shave, wax, cut! Hair will fall off after baby is born. I have a hairy belly with all of my pregnancies ( 2 girls & 1 boy) and it goes back to normal PP
