PP hair loss

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

PP hair loss

Postby aloeberry » Wed Jul 21, 2010 3:14 pm

It started around 2 months and it is DRIVING ME CRAZY! There is hair everywhere. I am shedding like mad. How long will this last? I feel like I will be bald soon!

It lasted several months for me each time. It is very annoying.

I had it for about a year...hormones really get screwed up after birth. It will get better.

Mine lasted about a year also after I had my son. My hair has been very thin ever since. I'm afraid that after I have this baby I'm going to be bald!! 8O

A full YEAR? OMG girls, that seems like forever. Did you cut it short? My hair is long right now and it just looks awful. I have it in a pony tail all day and all night.

I had pretty long hair and cut 11 inches off it about 8 months after DS was born. It needed to be cut and it's a lot more manageable, plus not as easy for a baby to latch onto! My style was a touch above shoulder length after the chop and I really liked it.

Ugh. I hate this too!!!!! I don't remember it being so bad with my DD as it has been this time with my DS. Handfuls come out when I wash or brush it. DH, who is bald, is getting annoyed too.

I have a bald spot now, right in the front of my hairline. I am afraid if this continues I am going to have more. This is great for self-esteem.

Mine was really bad for about 3 months and then it started to get better. I was so embarassed about it, because it made it look like I had a receding hairline after a while. It DID grow back. My son is almost 18 months and the parts where the hair fell out, my hair is now about 3 inches long. It DID, eventually get a little thicker. I did end up cutting my hair as well, because it was too thin and unmanagable. It's frustrating, but it WILL get better!
