Losing my hair, or just my mind?

I thought I would ask my blog world about this problem I'm having (since there are lots of new mamas out there). My hair is falling out by the handful!!! I mean, when I wash my hair, you could make a wig out of the hair that ends up in the bottom of the shower.

Now, I've heard that you don't shed while pregnant, so you make up for it after you give birth. But I did notice myself shedding while I was pregnant with Eli. I lost hair after Hadley too, so I was testing this theory. I'm not too worried about it since I have more hair than I know what to do with. But for people with thin hair, this could be really bad!!!

I have done no research on the subject, but just wanted to know if any of you have the same issue.

I know I'm losing my mind, but is it leaving me in the form of lost hair?

It hasn't happened for me, yet, this time (it's only been 2 months), but I do remember it after I had Genna. Like you, I don't really miss it since my hair is so thick! I did notice when it started growing back, though!

Girl, happened to me too! Then I grew these baby hairs everywhere on my head. It was NOT attractive. I had some toe up bangs for a long time!! It did finally even out...thank goodness!
