Oh man, I am freaking out. I have definitely been noticing that after this (my third) baby I have been losing more hair than with the previous two. But I figured, oh well, it's just the hair shedding that didn't fall out when I was pregnant. Even when I saw huge clumps of hair on my brush, I said to myself, "This is just hair that was supposed to come out before."
BUT this morning I went to brush back my hair into a pony tail and I saw that I HAVE A BIG BALD SPOT. In the corner of my forehead, where most people's hairline naturally goes back, there is a patch that goes back at least two inches farther from where my hairline used to be. In the patch is just little wispy hairs. It sort of looks like I shaved that patch a few weeks ago and it's starting to grow back.
There is another bald spot on the left side but it's not quite as bad. All my hair is however very, very thin and I am afraid I may have bald patches at the back too but I'm afraid to really examine it!
OMG...is this normal? Ds just turned 4 months old. Somebody please tell me that by 4 months the worst hair loss is over...somebody please tell me that this hair will all grow back! At this rate I am going to be wearing a wig pretty soon!
My sister, who is a hairdresser, tells me that lots of people get bald patches and that it will all grow back, but I have seen some other people online saying that their hair STAYED thin...I'm sorry for freaking out over something essentially trivial but I have always had very long hair, I feel it's a part of my identity and the thought that I'm only going to have a couple of wispy strings left soon has been making me depressed all day!
