My hair fell a lot during the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy. Now im in my third trimester and have cut it off. Will it grow back?
Yes: Telogen effluvium is common in pregnancy and is self limiting.
Baby girl born yesterday 6pound and 12 inch head circumference. Is her head fine I was told during pregnancy that she might have microcephaly?
Head measures small: Her weight is right around the 5th percentile for a newborn but her head is well below the 3rd percentile. The first head measurement after birth is difficult to rely on as there are things like "molding" (shape changes) from passing through the birth canal to consider. This info has to be put into context with the help of your pediatrician. They are there to assist you, don't hesitate to ask questSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably: I have historically counseled all my pregnant patients to avoid all extraneous "products"/"chemicals" during their pregnancy. Even though hair relaxers are applied topically; they are absorbed through your scalp and the make-up of the products is the unknown. Some might argue differently but I always err on the side of caution; better to avoid in the short term than risk long term problems.See 1 more doctor answer
After trimester #1: There are some hair dyes that are safe to use in pregnancy, but it is best to wait until after your first trimester is complete. This is when the baby is developing the most, and it is crucial nothing interferes with the process.
Avoid skin chemicals: Skin is is not a barrier and absorbs chemicals. It is a good idea in pregnancy to avoid chemicals. Hormones may change skin a great deal such that the skin may become hypersensitive. The less exposure to harsh chemicals during pregnancy, the better for the mother's skin and the baby's health. To best answer this question one would know the detailed chemistry of the agent to be considered for use.
Best avoided but...:
Most hair dyes contain toxic ingredients, some of which are carcinogenic. I'd avoid all in the 1st trimester. If you REALLY need to dye your hair after 1st trimester you can try to find a nontoxic choice but they're all toxic to some degree so if you want to have a healthy baby please wait. If you coloured your hair and your baby had problems how would you feel?

It's the liver!: Hi Sheryl B, Pregnant women experience thousands of symptoms and down through the ages women have had various explanations as to why these things happen.
