28 weeks and losing hair


A bit worried here right now as Iíve just turned 28 weeks and found a bald spot on the back of my head, I think itís getting bigger too
And noticeable as my hair is short
Anyone else suffered this or have heard of it ?

I would suggest having your thyroid checked

That would definitely warrant some follow up with your doctor. I've lost some hair but nothing so severe.

I second this. I have a friend who has been hyperthyroid since her first pregnancy, and my mom has hypothyroid. They both have differing issues but both of them had thinning hair issues.

I would definitely give your doctor a call. I do know that some women lose hair during pregnancy but I honestly don't have a clue what causes it.

I've lost a similar amount of hair with both of my pregnancies, mine grew back thankfully but I never did get checked if there was a particular reason why! Sorry I can't be of any help.

Oh my. I’ve lost hair post partum but never during pregnancy and not as severe. Definitely show your dr. It’s probanly hormonal but still needs to get checked out.
