Hair. Everywhere.

Starting about right around Teddy turning 4 months old my hair started falling out. Juuuuust a bit. Not that we’re two weeks in, it’s literally flying off my head. Every pass through of a comb, fingers or brush ends in a wad of tangled hair. In the shower, the walls are covered with it (as to try and avoid clogging the drain).

Alex has been very understanding but last week, there were three clumps on the shower walls and as I stepped out he said, “Oh my gosh Nat! It looks like someone murdered a furby in here!”

Hah! Yes, it’s true. It’s that bad. I truly did not think when other Moms talked about their hair falling out it would be this bad! But I’m here to tell you, it is!!

I wonder if I’ll be bald by the time he’s 6 months old?

  1. I would say that’s my least favorite part of the whole pregnancy package, but PPD takes the cake there. The hair loss and subsequent regrowth wins most annoying; everything you are losing now starts growing again fairly quickly and you get the most horrible halo of fringy hair around your head. I’m 15 months post-partum and can now measure the 5-6″ of hair growth in my halo. You will soon understand why so many moms chop off their hair. :-)

  2. Yep, I’m dreading it this time. It’s already starting a bit. With Makenzie I had a bald spot on the left side of my part. It was just starting to get to a normal hair length and now it’s probably going to go bald again. Have you encountered the “hairballs” that come out with your clothes in the dryer. That’s always fun…the things we go through for our kiddos, I guess they’re worth it. 😉

  3. I don’t know if it’s different for others, but surprisingly I haven’t had that problem this time. However, after Julian, I lost soo much hair and even got a small bald spot that eventually grew back in (I think). It’ll stop at some point at least, so there’s hope. 😉
