17th February 2011 07:21Hi girls, I'll probably post in mums and kids too about this. I know this sounds very shallow but I am so worried about the hair loss after giving birth. How bad is it really? I have had very bad phases of hair loss in the past. It always grew back but my hair is awfully fine and thin anyway that I cant really afford to lose it! Right now at nearly 6 months preggers it's thickened and nothing falls out these days so I presume it's going to hit with a vengeance once the baby comes. I am terrified. how bad is it going to be? and for how long? Is these anything i can start taking now to help? Sorry I sound so shallow. I should be worrying about other things I know .. and i am... am a right bloody worrier these days.
