Hairy tummy in pregnancy??
I am 21 weeks pregnant and notice, with horror, the increasing hair around my bellybutton. Is this normal and should I do anything about it? Someone asked to see my tummy the other day but I cant lift up my top cos the hair is gross!

It's normal and should go away after the pregnancy.
