  • I lost a lot of hair when I was pregnant. The Doctor said that it was normal, I am not sure exactly why it happens, but it all came back in.
    Best of luck

  • Hair loss that is connected to pregnancy usually occurs after delivery. During pregnancy, an increased number of hairs go into the resting phase, which is part of the normal hair loss cycle. This condition is not serious enough to cause bald spots or permanent hair loss, and should begin to diminish within 3-4 months after delivery. If you feel that you are experiencing unusual hair loss while you are pregnant, this may be due to a vitamin or mineral deficiency.

  • A friend of mine had that happen and her doctor told her that she wasnt getting enough vitamins. If your worried about it talk to your doctor at your next visit.
