Goodbye sweet hair :-(

My hair is falling out! In HUGE clumps in the shower and all over the house and everywhere! My poor husband and baby are going crazy. I bought a clip a couple months ago and it didn't fit because my hair WAS so thick, it fits perfectly now because I've lost so much hair! My mom friends have all told me the same thing happened to them, but I'm looking for advice/suggestions on how to make it stop!

PS. My son is will be four month on the 29th.

  • Why is your hair falling out? Maybe try rogaine for women? That sucks!

  • A lot of the hair you are losing is your pregnancy hair and it's supposed to fall out. Mine fell out in gobs too... we kept having to buy draino because I was clogging the drain. And it became a little thinnner then before... but now it is thick again.
    If it seems like WAY more than you should be loosing or you have bald spots talk to your OB about it.

  • Its normal to lose it and its not what your hair used to be. I went from having thick hair to bald spots around my temples. It will start to grow back around 5 or 6 months. My dd is 8 months and its almost back to normal. Don't worry. I know it sux but it DOES grow back =)

  • Newmommy0313009 it falls out after the baby is born not while pregnant. Some people lose more than others.
