I had a miscarriage in July at 8 weeks and I have noticed over the past few weeks that I'm really losing my hair.

I lost hair after my first pregnancy but I never expected to lose hair after a miscarriage...has this happened to anyone?

I'm now 8 weeks pregnant again and I'm not sure if my hormones are just all over the place.

Did you bleed heavily? If you are anaemic that can cause hair loss.

I did bleed very heavily but my iron has been checked since the mc and it was only my folic acid that was low

Its the same hormone cycle as if you carried full term. Go get a trim. It can help. Mine stopped after 2 months and started to regrow another 2 weeks later.
