Anyone lose their eyelashes during pregnancy??

This is our 4th baby and I'm 31 weeks. I usually have enviably long eyelashes (don't hate! ) but have noticed they're about half the length of normal and are thinner!!! Anybody else had this happen? I've never noticed it in previous pregnancies and I'm hoping they come back!

That happened to me with my first. Sorry to say but they still haven't come back almost 4 years later. Hope you have better luck!

On a side note, I also lost most of my leg hair with that pregnancy, of course that came back right away. I just knew you were dying to know that!

My lashes have thinned and become much shorter with both my pregnancies. After the first one they came back, but this time I am still waiting.

My lashes, eye brows and other body hair (legs, underarms) seemed to thin out a lot during both my pregnancies, though it was more noticeable during my second. It's come back both times.
