In brief: Wait

It is extremely common to lose your hair with pregnancy.
The fancy name is Telogen Effluvium. The good news is that this is usually temporary. Enjoy your time with your baby and your hair should slowly return to it's normal growth. Do not worry as many times it may take up to a year to fully grow back.
