How Does Alopecia Areata Progress To Alopecia Totalis?

Hi all. I developed alopecia areata last summer after starting Letrozole, a fertility medication. I had one large spot which was starting to grow back when I developed another. A few months after that, another. I am now pregnant, so I can't get any treatment or medication, but I can feel two new spots developing.

I feel like I'm shedding more hair overall and I'm wondering if my alopecia areata is progressing into alopecia totali or universalis. For those of you that have had this happen, what did the trajectory look like? How quickly did it move from a spot or two to something much more serious? Did grow into many more spots or diffuse shedding allover?
