I met some friends' same problem when they were pregnant.
Their hair can be thicker and fuller when pregnant.

My hair got thicker with taking prenatal vitamins. If your friends are taking prenatal vitamins, it could just be from that. Pregnancy does make the hair grow faster because of all the hormones circulating for the baby's growth. So with pregnancy hormones and prenatal vitamins, it is common for some women to have their hair grow faster and thicker than usual.

Not an expert. I've just been pregnant twice and I'm a nurse.

Wow, that is great.

A nurse knows a lot about pregnance and health in my mind.
