Sorry about the idiot that posted previously..... I've read in Parenting that because of increased blood flow during pregnancy hair may thickin', but all that extra growth falls out and goes back to your normal hair thickness after pregnancy. Thats why hair falls out during post partum. So you should not lose to much or more than what you had before. (I hope for all ours sakes that its true )

I've recently started shedding lots (3 months pp from c-section) but my hair is still fairly thick.

Hello there, I went to see a doctor about two months after the birth of my twins. He said it was intresting because he had just completed a study on just the subject. Anyhow, Preggo was pretty much on track. During pregnancy your shift in hormones causes you retain more of the hair you might otherwise shed. Postpart the shift changes again and you lose all that hair. I b___stfeed the boys, so I didn't have a period till about six month postpartum. The doctor said that hair loss would lesse once I had two or three regular periods. He was correct after my third or fourth period the hair loss was less until it was "normal" again. The loss before that was a lot. Hence, I went to see the doctor, as I thought something was wrong. He said in some women that just happens. Don't worry you will be back to normal just give it a few months.
