Yep, lots of hair is coming out. It slows down and you're probably the only one who notices that it's different. It was like this with my dd too and I didn't go bald.

I wear LOT's of headbands during this phase. Last time I got bangs cut which I NEVER do b/c I have wavey/curly. It did make a difference in terms of a style and my not seeing the receding hair line. it sucks no matter what. I am taking vitamin b and also FISH OIL but it doesn't seem to help!

look at it this way: our hormones are normalizing and that cannot be bad!

I'm losing huge clumps of hair, too. It's really bumming me out.

Same thing happened to me when I went off bcp. It's still coming out. It has something to do with the estrogen prolonging the follicle's growth cycle. I'm in the April '09 DDC (if it ever gets started!) and I'm waiting to see if this makes a difference for me. I have a feeling (since I'm almost 5 weeks and it doesn't seem to be slowing) that the hairs that are going to fall out will all fall out and the ones that are on a different growth cycle will be prolonged by the extra estrogen from this pregnancy. Then after the baby is born I can do it all over again! Horray

It does end. I think that it stopped after a few weeks. I just cut my hair because all of the hair that I lost PP grew back at the same time... so I had really long hair (I just cut 14 inches and I have a bob at chin length) and hair that was 6ish inches long. Let me tell you I looked GOOD . Now I have a great hair style that I LOVE. I wish I would have done it sooner!

I have curly hair (when I let it go natural) and never brush my hair (to avoid frizzies). But now... if I don't brush my hair at least twice a day, Caedmon gets mouthfuls when he's being worn. So much for letting my hair grow. I'm gonna have to get a haircut soon:
