Weird Pregnant things

Amongst the weirdness:

I've recently developed a dislike of milk chocolate. Its too damn sweet. We opened a box of See's and I deliberately ate the dark ones because they tasted better. This is really annoying because I (finally!) got my Christmas present from allanh and Randy, a large supply of Big Turk! Candy Bars from Canada...and they taste too sweet and I'm not enjoying them like I usually do. I'm going to put them away until after I deliver

Hair growth: One of the lovely phenomenons of pregnancy is a funky pattern of hair growth. Most women get the "shinier, thicker and more lustrous than ever" version. Basically what happens is that on a non-pregnant person, about 100 follicles release their hair every day. A pregnant person would only have 1/4 to 1/2 of the "norm" drop out. Which is why their hair gets thicker, fuller, etc. I never got this one, the only strange hair growth I had in the last two pregnancies was the emergence of an impressive moustache and random thick, dark hairs coming out in on my face. Thank God for tweezers!

However, I just recently noticed the my pubes are going absolutely freaking nuts! I've never been the most hairy woman in the world, but lately it seems like I'd need a lawnmower just to give myself a trim (if I were so inclined). I'm starting to look like the elbow junction on Robin Williams arm, its getting so bad. And its spreading to my thighs and up my belly. This is just weird. I'm afraid that after I have Gray it will all just fall out in one big clump and clog the shower drain. But at least then I wouldn't have to shave for date night. =)
Pregnancy hormones are just strange.
