5 weeks pregnant and noticed hair loss in the shower!


I'm 5 weeks into my pregnancy and as my lap date still hasn't come through, the doctors have referred me to the gyno as 'urgent'. I got my appointment date for the 10th of jan to receive a letter the next morning saying it was cancelled!

I've noticed in the shower more hair coming loose than normal, I've read this happened to a girl and it was due to a losing the baby at 8 weeks, I'm not absolutely freaking out and worried I'll meet the same fate!

Has anyone else had this, I'm more stressed as I've still no idea if I have endo and and I'm getting absolutely nowhere with this gyno!!

My friend shed loads of hair in early pregnancy. It’s due to hormones riding. Don’t worry it’s normal. Eventually it will stop - after the baby it will fall out again - but not in a bad way xx

Thank you, I did read it's quite unusual to lose hair during early pregnancy etc so my mind went into overdrive xx
