Not DS, me! It happened at about this time after DD was born and my doctor said my case was a bit excessive, but we attributed that to my c/s. But it's picking up again...on the bed, shower, counters, dryer vent...

Anyone else noticing it?

oh yeah! I've got a ton collecting in the shower and bathroom floor daily, all over my own clothes and in DS's crib next to my bed. Ugh. I can look at my hairline and see it's receded about 1 inch on my temples - not totally gone, but really thinned out. Luckily my style hides that!

It started for me around 8 or 9 weeks. Now at 13-14 weeks, it seems to have slowed down somewhat.

Same here. I pulled my hair back into a ponytail the other day and gasped when I looked in the mirror. It's very noticeable at my temples. I'm considering cutting it (it's mid-back length) to a bob to give it the appearance of being fuller. Sucks because my hair was on the thin side to begin with.

Oh and watch out for those hairs, I've found several wrapped around dd's fingers and toes

Yep, and DS is a thumbsucker so they're always in his mouth.
