  • I broke out everywhere when I was pregnant, and its mostly gone... except, sigh, my back... it is going away though... I lost a ton of hair after I had my baby girl and supposedly that stops at six months... we will see.

  • My dr told me that losing hair can be because your not getting enogh calcium for you and the baby do the baby takes it all. try getting more and see if that helps.

  • Though I have never broken out during my pregnancies, for some odd reason I do feel my face extremely dry during this one....with my last son I lost a lot of hair I was shocked that I still had hair after he was born and it got worst probably till he was about 8 months old and now here we go again with this pregnancy but I honestly feel that this time it is even worst......I use olive oil in my hair right now and use olive oil shampoos they are suppose to help too......
