I'm still losing my hair. (as per usual)
I can't remember when it stopped with my first. Was it right away? Or was it closer to the end of the 1'st trimester?
I can't rememebr when this should end.
But I'm getting concerned. I've read that it is normal to lose hair all through pregnancy.
Then more after.
Well, if this holds true for me, I really will be bald!

I have lost 55 lbs this year and shed through the last 30 lbs. A lot!
So if I lost so much before and continue during, then during the post partum stage-I'll need a wig!

HELP! Anyone else still losing their hair??

I am definitely still losing lots of hair. I think that it was a bit before my hair stopped coming out. Then, after ds was born.... it fell out like crazy!

You are not alone!

I have thick curly (Jewish) hair and always lose a LOT, like I can roll up the hair into a mouse-sized ball every time I no-poo, every couple of weeks). I generally stop losing it during pregnancy. I believe even in my last pregnancy it had stopped before the pregnancy ended and that was 7 weeks.

(p.s. I think I lose less anyway now that I am not shampooing and disturbing it every day - and using bs & acv - no more sodium laurel sulphate)

I've been noticing that I've been losing my hair a bit more than usual since I've been pg. I didn't notice that with any of my other pgs.
