Well, I was bragging about how my hair loss isn't as bad as it was after I had my first and BAM, it's actually worse! It's EVERYWHERE, it's coming out in big huge clumps ALLLLL day. I brush it out very good and put it up, then two hours later brush it again and just as much comes out. I can't even wear it down anymore because it gets all over my clothes, not like the usual one or two hairs, but seriously, my back is covered. I can already see some thinning in the front...and my ponytail's about a third thinner than it used to be :(((( long did this last for you? With my first it laster for over a year...I'm just hoping it won't be this long this time. It's a lot, like scary a lot...

I can't remember how long the hair loss typically lasts, but with the amount you're describing, you might want to mention it to your doctor because it could be a thyroid imbalance. There's a simple blood test you could have to check that. Hope you get some answers soon!

Elena!!! Hey how's it going? How is yourlittle man? omg, I had/have this too....I started with fine wasn't super thin, but really fine. So after the pregnancy I got hyperthyroidism so I think that made my hairloss even worse. It seems to have died down, but for a while it was coming out everywhere like you mentioned. Even when I walked around barefoot I would get it wrapped around my toes so it was in the carpet. GROSSSSSS! I was constantly vaccuuming. ugh. Anyways, I got used to my hair being nice and thick while pregnant I guess because now it's back to being flat and a skimpy little ponytail when I pull it back. I'm going to get it majorly highlighted this weekend just so it has some texture.

My hair loss was just as bad as yours. With both my boys it took 5-6 months and then my hair went back to normal shedding. I found that after having ds2 my hair loss was more fast and furious than after having ds1. My hair thinned out way more after the 2nd baby and I noticed thinning near my temples. Thankfully it slowed down at 5 months pp and now seems to have stopped entirely at 5.5 months pp.

I had my thyroid checked and everything's normal! I guess, once again, I'm stuck with something that doesn't happen much (like having a reaction to an epidural, lol, and starting a period 5 weeks post-partum while exclusively b___stfeeding). I just hope it slows down. It just started happening at 4 months, so I'm just hoping it'll slow by 6 months, like your's did!
