Default high shedding during pregnancy?

I have had high shedding for four years, but after going to acupuncture, my shedding majorly improved for six months straight. Now that I'm in my first trimester, I just recently started shedding a lot again , and it's making me worried that I'm going to go back to another long bout with shedding. I haven't gone to acupuncture while pregnant because of the risks, but also I've been majorly vomiting and not eating due to the pregnancy. I'm hoping maybe it's just my body responding to all this harshness of vomiting, and that it will calm down. What do you all think?? It's disheartening to me because of my success I'd been having and then everyone says that during pregnancy is when you least shed and instead you get thicker hair, so I don't know what is going on.

What does your ob/gyn say? Have they tested you for nutrient deficiencies due to the hyperemesis?

Well it just started this week, the high shedding, so no I haven't told them. I guess I'll need to mention it to them at my next month's visit. I was shedding like 80 per day (an estimate) and now it's like double, these last two days. Just kind of sensitive to any high shedding because of my past.

Can you move your appointment forward or speak to your family doctor? Nobody here can suggest anything that is safe for you to do, I'm concerned more hairs might go into the dormant phase before next month.

I will definitely keep an eye on it, but hope for the best. Even if we called my vomiting a "stressor" it could cause TE, and that in itself takes more than a few days to resolve itself. i'll give it a couple weeks. I was more just wondering if anyone else had experienced something similar. I thought too, maybe it's the summer "high" shed for the hot weather that many have.

In and of itself the act of vomiting is not likely the issue, resultant dehydration and/ or nutrient deficiencies and/ or systemic inflammation can be. But understand the hair doesn't shed right away, it goes into a dormant state and sheds weeks or months later. This means shedding can continue long after the health problem is resolved which is obviously distressing. So the faster you identify and address any dietary issues the less hair you are likely to lose.

Shedding is not more common in humans in the summer it's more common in the autumn/ winter, we don't moult like cats or dogs. If it's not normal for you, it's not normal for you.

I do feel for you, a dear friend of mine had hyperemesis badly enough to be hospitalised with dehydration.

Nothing to add except. (((Hugs))) I'm sorry about the tough pregnancy, I had hypermesis when I was pregnant last year. NOT FUN I know. Wanted to crawl into a hole and die. Mine lasted the whole pregnancy and resulted in a tiny boney skinny baby instead of a cute chunk chunk since I couldn't keep down nothing but lettuce amd cheese. But I didn't shed a single hair the whole 9 months which is why I have nothing to add. Hang in there. It'll be over soon.
