In brief: Be patient and wait.

Congratulations on getting pregnant, which can be difficult w/ PCOS! Stop minox.
Pregnancy will likely improve your hair quality and quantity as more follicles shift into "Anagen" (growth) phases. If you are prone to hair loss/thinning, the time to take action is AFTER childbirth. After HairCheck trichometry measurement, you might consider restarting treatment like Formula 82M, laser therapy, etc.
