Hair loss in pregnancy???

Hi, I was wondering if anybody has had this problem before... I know it's very common to lose hair AFTER the baby is born, but I'm 33 weeks now and am losing hair and it's freaking me out!! it started a few weeks ago but is getting worse now and I have already less hair ;((! I know my iron is on the low side and I have been taking iron tablets but am not sure if there is a link. If anybody has had this problem it would be great if you could let me know what caused it and if and how it got better... thank you!!

I was going to say to mIght be anaemic! You need to increase iron, b12 and zinc intake. Maybe try professionalhair products also and don't bleach/highlight whilst your hair is weak.
