First signs of pregnancy

Olivia80

I’m probably getting a bit ahead of myself here but my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 2yrs, in that time I had my thyroid removed due to thyroid cancer.

It took a while to get my tablets / vitamins right and I’ve been feeling good for over a year now. When my thyroxine is too high, my hair fell out, when it was too low, my hair fell out.

I’m 4 days away from my period and my hair has started to fall out again, which I’ve noticed for the last 3 mornings. I’m just thinking that it could be a sign of pregnancy but was just wondering if anyone else has had similar?

Many members have experienced thinning hair which is quite disturbing to many but it isn't necessarily connected to pregnancy.

Hair is normally better during pregnancy, it's after the birth it falls out.
