Post partum hair loss, is that a thing? I am going to feel so much better is that is a thing. I just thought I was so stressed my hair was falling out.
Literally just got out of the shower and thought about posting about postpartum hair loss! Glad I’m not the only one. I’m four months now and it’s still coming out like crazy. How do I even have hair left!?
Hahahah at least we can laugh about it. Mine looks like tumbleweed of the Wild Wild West 😭😂
This is my husband’s least favorite thing that I do in the shower. I tend to forget the hair on the wall, and it grosses him out. At least it’s not all going down the drain to clog our pipes 🙃
Lol that looks just like me…
I would roll up all my hair into a little ball and bring it out to my husband asking if we can keep it and if I can name it George.
I once wrote “SEX?” on the wall when I knew my husband was going to shower after me. It worked, lol.
I’ve done this EXACT thing before. It was a self portrait. Well done!
Soooo I’m 3.5 years postpartum and still losing hair like this…… anyone else? Stress????
My husband would leave me messages in my leftover hair lol
Much more dedication than me, I usually just arrange them into dicks to make myself giggle super immaturely haha
It actually took me a while to see there face because I thought it was an elephant walking away. I drew it on my phone but can’t figure out how to upload it, and that makes me sad
Mine just clogs the drain and i play a game of how much hair is this one strand holding as i pull it out.
I used to occasionally gather all my postpartum loose hairs and clump them together on the shower wall as a gross/funny display for my husband to find at his next shower.
Until I was minding my friend’s baby one day and her husband came to pick up their child. He was a plumber and had just finished a dirty job and asked if I minded him having a quick shower before he handled the baby. “No worries!” I replied, forgetting about my long, dark, hairy wall display on the shower wall.
It was never mentioned. I still do it.
Is it wrong to admit I’ve done exactly the same? 🧐
On a serious note how long does this hair loss last? my sons nearly 2 and its showing no sign of slowing down.
I chopped off a lot of my hair length. I am sporting a feathered bob now a days.
I do this shit all the time!! Glad to know I’m not the only weirdo!
I thought hair loss started right after having baby. So for 3 months I felt like the lucky one who got to keep all that nice hair. Now at almost 4 months I am going absolutely crazy. My hair is super long, and I find it everywhere. Or should I say it finds me! On the floor, in my clothes, on my baby, it’s so bad that I brush my hair multiple times a day just trying to control it hahaha…help
This is approximately the amount of hair I lost while pregnant and I was pleased it was so little compared to my usual. I can’t even describe how much I lost post partum 😱
at first it thought it’s one of those art where you keep m drawing without stopping tech until I saw the title <3 sorry but it looks artistic
It looks like an artistic yet realistic rendering of a postpartum woman
I’m very conflicted. I find this both gross and pleasing to the eye.
This gave me such Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark vibes.
Burn it. Burn it all.
I write notes to my wife when she leaves it stuck on the shower wall because she was too tired to remember to clean it off. Usually my initials a heart and her initial or our daughters.
I surprise my husband with a rorscacht test
I thought I was going to skip the hair loss this go around. Then just today I was brushing after my shower and I thought the hair I was pulling out would never end. Ugggghhhhh.
Omg I thought I was only the one
I love this lol
I was able to write “hello there” with mine, tomorrow I’m going to try a picture. Wish me luck!
I’m very impressed with your artistic skills!
I don’t have anywhere near the amount of working sense of humor to do this 😭 I struggle so badly with my self image because of the hair loss.
I’m deeply impressed and equally disturbed.
My hair shower art looks more like a massive sphere of my sadness🤔
I’ve always kept my hair long so this is the only way to save myself a gross clogged drain. I hope your loss is minimal.
