  • The hair loss could be stress, or thryoid. Last year I had a lot going on (shcool work planning a wedding) then my cat died and for a day and a half my hair fell out like crazy. But i would Def. ask your doc. Get your thyroid checked!

  • i lost a lot of my hair during my second pregnancy as well but you really can't tell because i have such thick hair. it will slow down a little once you give birth. my second child is 18 months old now and i am still losing my hair. the only thing that helps me is to cut it shorter. my hair was halfway down my back and now it is inbetween my shoulder blades. Also not every pregnancy is the same. they are all different. maybe this means you are having a boy. what you don't go through with one you will go through with the other. that is for pregnancy AND for your child. (just a bit of advice)
