    Default Hair Loss.

    Anyone still had daily hairloss during pregnancy? If so did it still fall out after birth??

    Yes and yes. I had very thin temples . I didn't really notice, but looking at old photos, it was thinner than I thought.

    I lost less over time, but I was still loosing handfuls of hair for over 3 years. It stopped for good when pregnant with DD.

    Hope yours stops sooner.

    I've always had quite thin hair and my hair is still falling out on a daily basis while pregnant. DP thinks it looks fuller and I feel that it is thicker. I'll let you know soon if I lose a lot of hair once she's born...I sure hope not!

    I always have lovely strong healthy hair in pregnancy. Once bub is born I lose it by the handful for months. My hair is very thick and long so luckily it's not too noticeable.

    Yes, I lost hair on a daily basis during pregnancy (not a lot though) but after the birth I cannot believe how much hair came out! Bub is four and half months and I have just noticed that the hair loss is easing up a bit. Lucky for me I have thick hair and I actually think it looks a bit better thinned out!

    My hair loss lasted through pregnancy, and breastfeeding. It only really stopped when my son weaned. I was also anaemic the second time (requiring an iron infusion, due to miscarriage), so that probably contributed to it also for me.
