Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion the excess facial hair might be related to pregnancy.There will be alteration of hormones and that might result in such type of condition.Dont worry.That will subside after delivery.But check for any excess weight gain in this pregnancy.If the weight gain is normal you might not worry.
