Tumbleweeds of Blonde Hair

Are falling out of my head.

I guess it's the postpartum hair loss. Which I knew was coming. But it still took me by surprise. 

When Fynn was just a few weeks old I went to my breastfeeding support group and a couple of women there with older babies were talking about how they were losing their hair like crazy. The lactation consultant that ran group said that it was normal about 3 months after having a baby to lose a lot of hair. Supposedly during pregnancy you don't lose hair (which I call bs on, since I lost a ton at the time, but I digress) Naive little me thought that I would be immune to the hair loss since I lost so much during pregnancy.

Not so much.

In the shower I pull out clumps. CLUMPS. of my hair just by running my fingers through it. I brush my hair and it looks like I just tried to shave my head. Ugh! I have such thin, fine hair as it is... I don't need to be going bald on top of it.

Will the glamour of having a baby never cease?

  1. I never lost my hair but I think my body let me win that one since everything else was (and kinda still is) so jacked up.

    But yeah, our little miracles are so worth it. Must keep telling myself that. lol
