currently 12 weeks with dc3 and my hair is falling out! Not enormous amounts but with ds1 and ds2 I remember thinking how clean my hairbrush and plug holes were! Anyone else experienced the same?!

I'm 9 weeks with my 1st and I'm loosing at least a handful every time I wash my hair sad I'm hoping it's just crazy hormones and I'll soon have thick shiny lovely hair!
Sorry that's not much help! Least your not the only one smile

mine gets thicker & thicker during pregnancy... then all falls out once baby has arrived... in chunks!! Then I get that awful regrowth that looks like you are sprouting a weird fringe all along your hair line. In fact, note to self... I must actually get a fringe cut this time just before baby arrives, so that the weird regrowth is disguised.

I'm 17 weeks and have been losing it throughout. I didn't with DC but then felt like I was going bald in the months following birth.

Get your iron levels checked- if they are low that can make your hair fall out, and pregnancy usually reduces them
