I posted on the 3rd tri boards, but got zero responses. Since most, if not all, of you have gone through pregnancy and are so responsive, I figured I'd try here. Hope you don't mind!
I have Alopecia (a skin condition that can cause hair to not grow) and have had it my entire life. Luckily, I'm almost 29 and have only been affected in one spot. Now, at 33 weeks of pregnancy, I noticed a new bald spot..probably about the size of a quarter. It's right inside my hair line so not super obvious and I'm not exactly sure when it started, but am guessing it's fairly recent.
When Googling it, I see tons of stories of women who had similar experiences during pregnancy, even without having Alopecia. I am wondering if any of you experienced something similar and if so, did the hair grow back after pregnancy?
I have an appt with a dermatologist tomorrow, but doubt they can really tell me if this is pregnancy, the Alopecia, something else..if it will grow back on its own..if it will get worse, etc..
