Every other pregnancy I recall my hair getting thicker and healthier, but this time it coming out constantly. If I pull my fingers through my hair I come away with about a dozen strands. :(
I take a prenatal supplement daily. Could I still be deficient in something?
Why on earth is my hair falling out?
I would definitely be suspicious of deficiency. If you have a care provider, you may want to go see them and have your levels of B vitamins, D, iron, etc checked out.

I second Dayiscoming (I wish the mobile view showed signatures, so I could see her real name),this is my 6th pregnancy and I've always had a slowing of hair loss. Ha, at least until about 4 months postpartum, when it makes up for the whole 9 months seemingly all at once.
Right?? I remember it coming out in huge clumps! Blech!!
I would definitely check with your doctor or MW!
