Hey ladies, I have a question for you. Have you all experienced the wonderful healthy longer hair and nails? Well I haven't I have actually been shedding hair and my nails break all the time. What did you guys do to get things to grow? This was one of the parts I was looking forward to during pregnancy. I thought maybe it would show up later but I'm going on 6months and I don't see that happening anytime soon.
Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy will you notice a difference. The prenatalvitamins they say help with hair growth, however I believe its more hormonal changes within you. When you notice your hair growing you will also notice your nails growing faster than usual. I have been taking prenatal vitamins for only 3-4 wks... I would say its more hormonal changes than the vitamins, for myself atleast.
It's your hormones too. The vitamins help but the gorgeous hair and nails has been part of the pregnancy "glow" since long long before prenatal vitamins existed. Enjoy it, tons of hair falls out as your hormone levels drop after giving birth (sorry!!
Well the one I take is Nature Valley I believe name is,but since I been taking it my hair, nails etc have grown. Had to switch because the ones my Dr prescribed me cost almost $200 and only last every 30 days for 12 months.
I don't think so because I never took them with my daughter who is now 5 years old and healthy as can be and I don't take them now and there is nothing wrong with this baby and I'm now 37+5 with no complications with either baby.
but would avoid hair dyes, and also bleech. I used to use Jolen bleech to light my hair on skin. but wen we start in ttc, i avoid that. are you taking any prenatal vitamins?? if no, its the best time to start taking.. any prenatal with folic acid is good .. Hope you will get your BFP soon. Good luck !!!
Everything you need is in the prenatal vitamin. It also helps with your nails. Trust me your hair will grow quicker than normal during pregnancy. And as long as you take your vitamins you'll see a difference. But don't freak out if it's not growing as fast as you'd like.
I take Trader Joe's prenatals- they are the same thing as Rainbow brand (Rainbow sells them to TJ's and TJ"s puts their name on it) They are great. I used to take CVS brand and I have noticed a HUGE difference since starting the TJ's prenatals. My hair is nicer and more shiny, and my nails are super strong, and I also feel like I have more energy.
I believe Gwenneth Paltrow swears her long locks of gorgeous straight blonde hair are due to her taking prenatalvitamins for years. Who knows? I guess we'll know to back off the prenatals if she turns up with colon cancer!
Here is a blurb on taking prenatal vitamins from Mayo Clinic that might help explain it more clearly:
Prenatal vitamins are multivitamins intended for women who are pregnant or hope to become pregnant.
s because of your prenatalvitamins. They help hairand nail growth. And the idea about it being a boy because you have a lot of extra hair, could be true. Before I got pregnant I just had peach fuzz on my tummy and now it looks darker and longer, and I'm having a boy. But yet again, I shave my arm pits and legs a lot more than usual. Also your pubic hair will probably begin to grow so much you can't keep up with it.
You'll be fine, a prenatal is just an extra to help you and the baby, specially you since the baby ***** you dry of all your nutrients which is why some women end up with brittle hair, chipped nails etc, it's just a plus.
so i actually saw my doctor doctor today. i told her i was taking iron pills, folic acid, and prenatal vitamins. she told me i don't need to take the folic acid. i was like ummm ok because my mid wife told me i should take the folic acid because prenatal vitamins have a little bit. who do i listen to?
I was very anxious for my hair to grow as well but even with eating healthier and taking my prenatal pills daily my hair has not grown at all. I feel my hair actually got so dry :/ but everyone can be different.
You don't have to take the prenatal pills they just give your baby extra vitamins and nutrients when you aren't eating well and it won't harm the baby if you don't take them. But if you aren't eating well like veggies and fruits your baby can have complications not to scare you or nothing by this post just take care of you both the right way and if you have the pills just take them your baby will be happy and healthy!!
Do prenatal vitamins really make hair & nails grow stronger faster & healthier? Do your feet really grow in size when you're prego?
