Baby Hair

No, not Gwen's... Mine :(

Let's back up for a second. 

     When a woman first finds out that she is pregnant, she usually goes out and buys "The Bible," What to Expect When You're Expecting.  She then begins to read about ALLLLLLL of the challenges changes that her body is about to endure, as well as, the growth of the precious little being inside of her.  Then, after the long nine ten months, our bambino enters the world. :)

     In the first few months of Mommyhood, we move on to reading about their first year: Milestones, breastfeeding, food, diapers, product reviews, etc.  Making sure that our baby is on track, and getting the best of everything from us. 

     Then, we read... yeah right, at this point, there is NO TIME to read.  And when we have that spare moment to read, we would rather finish that load of laundry, catch up on Reality TV (can you tell what my "Guilty Pleasure" is? lol), paint our nails, and even blog.  My point is, that we stop reading about US, about all of the changes that occur POSTpartum.

     Which is why, one morning, a few months ago, after blow drying my hair and seeing what looked like EVERY single one of my hairs on the floor, I ALMOST FAINTED!  Now, I have always been a "shedder," but this was outrageous!  I called my Mother IMMEDIATELY and asked her if I had Alopecia (remember, I am a hypochondriac, lol).  She confirmed that it was NOT Alopecia, that it was all tied into my pregnancy, and to go Google it.  I did, and turns out, hair loss is completely normal, without giving details, it all has to do with hormones (I thought we were done with those problems after the baby was born), and I should be back to normal within a few months.

Fast Forward to Today

Do you see them?

I am currently growing a new batch of hair... oh so much fun.  Let's just say that I will not be wearing a pony tail in public any time soon, as someone might mistake me for a porcupine!  These hairs better hurry up, or I may be buying hair spray BY THE BULK!

There are so many things that people don't tell you about Pregnancy.  I'm here to spread the word, haha :)

Hope you have a great day!

I blogged about the same thing! I was losing my hair all over the place. It actually got better once I had my hair cut recently. Someone told me you get some baby fuzz coming in...I haven't seen that yet but bet it is on the way!

I was so addicted to the "What to expect when you're expecting" - it was totally my pregnancy bible!! I haven't had the hair thing happen yet but
I've heard about and knowing my luck - its only a matter of time:) Hope you had a great week:)
