A question for moms that lost hair post pregnancy?

Ok so I am wondering if after you lost hair did it come back to the same thickness when it was done?
With my first two pregnancies my hair got thicker but didnt fall out after words. With my third it's falling out in handfulls. My hair is super thick so I am hoping that when all is said and done that it will not go back to being super thick.

  • My hair was never as thick as it was during pregnancy - and I was glad of it. But my hair was not thin to begin with. The hair loss was gross - just mounds and mounds.

  • I am 4 months pp and I am still losing by the handfuls--it is gross. I hope that it stops soon or I may end up bald.

  • well i know that you get thicker hair as you're pregnant, and then you lose it after you have your baby. i had thicker hair, and i have hair coming out, but not buy handfulls, just some strands every time i brush and wash my hair

  • I lost hair after both my kids where born- but not that much. Maybe if it is a lot you may need to talk to your doctor about getting on a multivitamin. Are you bfing- maybe your body is just depleated and needs extra vitamins.
