I know my parents teased about my brother and me giving them gray hair, but I definitely didn't think that started until the teenage years (kids causing gray hair, that is). However, I was pulling my hair back a day or two ago and I found a gray hair poking out from all the rest. It was about an inch long. Could this be due to my pregnancy? Please tell me I'm not just going gray early like my dad and grandmother!

DH asked if I wanted him to pull it, but I had to show my mom first... I'm such a dork!

Anyone else found any grays they attribute to pregnancy?

Oh yeah!!! I just noticed mine on my SO's bday, July 11th. I'm 30 with three known gray hairs!! I wasn't prego yet, actually was ttc and maybe ovulating on the day I found them. I teased SO saying I had a gray hair for each of my three kids! lol!

I never thought it would bother me when the time came, but it did! Sorry hun! At least were hot mommas with gray hairs!!

I found my first one on my wedding day almost 4 years ago. I was 24. I've only found 2 more since then! I don't think any of them can be attributed to pregnancy though.

I don't think they're attributed to pregnancy. I wouldn't know if I have any because I dye my hair!

All stages of hair dye are safe. But it's important not to apply any dye to your scalp as it can soak in and blahblahblah. I got highlights my last pregnancy. And lowlights. They looked amazing, but don't try anything new like a perm or a fancy new color, because your hormones can affect how it works on your hair. Goodluck!

I know the dyes that are out now are a lot safer than years ago. I remember my doc saying something about not wanting me to dye, either early or late pregnancy. i can't remember which.
