I know that you can start shedding hair really badly AFTER you give birth, but has anyone every experienced it during pregnancy? I am 7 weeks and I have been shedding like crazy for the last few weeks....

Re: Shedding

I have lost hair during my pregnancy. I just figured it was because I had a bad experience my 1st pregnany and the 2nd time I was on pins and needles and still am sometimes (7 months along). I would ask you Doctor about it though.

Re: Shedding

It could be your hormones since they are little out of whack now... or the prenatal vitamins... or it may just be that you are more sensitive to all the things happening with your body right now so you are paying more attention to it than before.

Re: Shedding

My understanding is that it can go either of two ways --either you will not lose any hair during pregnancy, making your hair progressively thicker until birth when all that should have fallen out earlier falls out, or you lose all the dead hair immediately, instead of three months after it dies, making your hair much thinner at the beginning. The former is more common but both are normal.
