  • hairloss... post baby

    Everyone says you lose that gorgeous prego hair, but seriously how much is normal? This is so scary, im constantly lossing hair, all day it comes out, in the shower i have a mosaic on the wall that i pull down three times, i mean giant fur balls! i throw them in the toilet and it looks like a dropped a wig in there. Then i brush it and more and more, it so annoying, i no it has thinned out, but so far i dont notice any bald spots. but i wouldnt be surprised to see a shinny hairless spot on my head in the next month or so. okay that might be dramatic, but really how much is normal, how long will it last?!

  • I think mine kept falling out until baby was about 6mo. And the fullness of my hair didn't really get back to normal until 3 or 4 months after that.

    Mine was so bad that I actually wore scarves over my hair for a while, and I have a LOT of hair. But hair loss literally stops during pregnancy and every hair that would have fallen out in those 9 months is falling out now - it's a good thing to keep in perspective when you see how much you're losing.

    • I have learned something new. Thanks.
      I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
      Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

      From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia
