    Hair loss during pregnancy

    Has anyone else been losing their hair during their pregnancy? I am at 26 weeks now and have been losing clumps of hair since 20 weeks. I have been tested for thyroid problems but all is fine. Thanks

    Normally it's another way round which I find annoying. I have very thick hair and it also change its texture too.

    No don't shave! How is your vitamin intake? Hair loss during pregnancy is rather uncommon. It can be due to a thyroid problem or a vitamin deficiency. I would talk about it with your Dr.

    i asked the doc about it. he said it's normal for some preg women to go thru it. and shrugged. and told me to continue eating well and take the vitamins. :(:(:(

    it's totally normal to lose hair when pregnant. I would not be too alarmed about it.
