Post subject: hair loss
Hi Everyone,
I had my first baby in August - a beautiful girl called Isabel - after many years of trying and eventually IVF/ICSI.
I've noticed in the last few weeks that my hair seems to be falling out loads more than before my pregnancy.
Anyone else noticed this???
Is it normal???
Many thanks
Bakedbean and babybean! Embarassed

Thank you so much - that is very reassuring. I was starting to really worry about it.
Your little fella looks absolutely adorable.

Yes it is completely normal, you keep a lot more of your hair when you're pregnant (which is why it generally feels thicker), so it then comes out over a much shorter space of time after you've had your baby. Smile

as mika says Very Happy its cos you don't lose hair during pregnancy much - if you breastfed it can delay the loss slightly, but it'll all come out in clumps soon enough Very Happy

I also had this BADLY. I had double whammy, first trimester I think I lost almost quarter of my hair, it eventually came back but then after the baby fell out all over again!!!!!! I now have stupid baby hair sprouting thru, but it's getting there!!!!
I got so irritated that I lopped all mine off boy short....... it will stop tho just to reassure you, try not to worry 'cos it ends up a vicious circle.... stress obviously being another contributing factor.
