I have the same problem! I hate it, but my doctor said as long as it not coming out in clumps its not something to worry about.

I'm also the same way, and I was highly dissapointed about it because I thought finally I will stop shedding, and if anything it has gotten worse. and my hair is still just as thick as normal which I just cannot fathom lol I feel like i should be bald by now.

Well my hair is def. growing quicker, but it's CERTAINLY not silky and beautiful like everyone says it will be! And my nails are breaking more now then before I was pregnant! LOL! Oh well! Healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby are all I care about! At least I won't be disappointed about my hair when the prenatal vitamins are done, since they haven't made it any better!

@MRS K lol yea I feel bad for my bf too we will be laying down and he'll jump up like omg theres hair in my mouth lol guess imma keep a pony from now on!!!

@LADY lol mine looks the same too but i just cant imagine it staying this way if it continues, i wonder if its the type of prenatals im taking because that is the only thing i have changed in my life...or maybe we are just the lucky few that doesnt get nice shiny locks figures with my luck

@JLB lol at least it is growing, my nails seem a lil thinner and more fragile now too and yes i agree healthy baby is what im looking forward to (peferably with a nice head full of hair )

GLAD YOU LADIES RESPONDED I WAS BEGGINING TO THINK SOMETHING WAS GOING WRONG WITH MY PREGNANCY!!!
