There is a well documented old wives tale that if you’re having a girl, you shave your legs less and if you’re having a boy (thanks testosterone) you’re having a boy!
What are you experiencing?
Did you notice any change and if so did you have a boy or a girl??

I have gotten hair all over my belly (thank god it’s blonde!) and my hair is growing like a weed…..and I’m having a boy : )

Interesting! I am definitely having to shave a lot more frequently now – usually I can skip a day or two of shaving my legs but not any more….particularly as it’s summer here and I’ve been living in shorts! We’re team green (and only 17 weeks anyway) but I am absolutely convinced we’re having a boy. Will be very interesting to see if this old wives tale holds true!

I have 2 friends who had girls and found their hair growth became very sparse and had little girls and three girls who had boys that couldn’t keep up with the growth!

Having a girl and I’m definitely shaving as much or more. And my hair dresser says I have lots of baby hairs. I thought more hair was part of pregnancy (regardless of gender) because of all the folic acid and B vitamins we have to have, plus the extra hormones . . .

I shave much less… but it has nothing to do with hair growth hahaha
@Ree723: I’m 17 weeks & team green too! 🙂

I’m definitely hairier, but I’m shaving less, lol. Maybe that means 1 boy, 1 girl 🙂

The hair on my legs is OUT OF CONTROL! If I shave in the morning, I can feel serious re-growth by the evening. And I’m not talking a tiny bit like it used to be before I got pregnant. I’m talking I could probably shave again. And I definitely have to shave the next morning.
Supposedly the docs think I’m having a boy, but it’s still early (14 w) so we’ll see on that one!

My hair has been thinner and dryer since I’ve gotten pregnant. No body hair issues at all here! That’s one plus, I don’t need to pluck, shave, or wax anything very often!
I’m having a girl in March.

welp I am pregnant with a girl and I have been shaving my legs every single day…. I am pretty sure that wives tale is not true!!

huh, I had never heard that one before. BUT, I have commented several times to my husband how it’s weird that I can go forever without feeling like I need to shave and we’re having a girl.

I would need to shave twice a day to keep up with my hair growth, and I’m having a BOY, so it’s true for me. And the amount of blond, thin hair all over my body is ridiculous (and gross).

I’m bumping this because I’ve noticed my body hair has almost stopped growing completely! And when it does become noticeable, it’s blonde! (I have jet black hair and have always been a naturally hairy person!)

I’m definitely WAY more hairy… And having a girl. That being said, you’re right. My legs are less hairy than they used to be! (Except all the extra hair is growing on my stomach, and EWW)
