Anyone loose hair during pregnancy?

So I know that its common to loose your hair after giving birth and that during pregnancy your hair is supposed to be at it's healthiest....but if I remember correctly I do believe last time I had a bit of this. Today in the shower I pulled out at least 20 strands and I don't normally have that many come out....

Did anyone else loose hair during pregnancy? I am still 3 days till aunt flo comes and I'm waiting till I miss it to test (already tested yesterday with a Neg)...but I was curious

  • My hair got really thin during the first trimester but eventually made up for it and got super thick, And then fell out again after my dd was born.
