Unless you are Heidi Klum...or Gisele...or heck fire ...maybe you are one of those
irritating girls that I talk about behind your back lucky girls that bounce back to your pre-pregnancy figure days after the baby is born....your body takes time to get to where it was. In fact mine has never really gone back to what IT WAS ...whatever IT was. It takes on a whole new shape. Even if the scales say your weight is there...your skin tells you a different story.
Forget skin for a minute...let's talk hair....
You know that gorgeous luscious dark (in my case) shiny hair you get while pregnant? Well that's me....ever wonder what happens to that thick hair after you give birth?
Well it (meaning your head) has decided you don't need that thick hair anymore...that (for me) around 3 months postpartum it will fall out. And not just for a few days...(but for me) about 9 months if not longer.
Lily-ism :"Take your hair off"....translation "Get your hair out of the pony tail and let me twist it and yank it and run my fingers through it because it comforts me."
Lily is a hair twister. Not her own, but mine. Has been since she was a wee little sprout. I've been having that hair loss for about 3 months now. When she yanks my hair chunks fall out. Hubs finds my dark hair everywhere. You should see the towels even after I was them.
Hubs finds then in his undies. He always tells me it's freaky to grab a clean pair of drawers and find ur wife's hair there. haha. I tell ya it's everywhere. The drain looks horrible after a shower. The kids call it the shower monster.
I'm shedding more than the dog.
Or the worst is when the hair starts growing back and ppl think you have cut bangs. NO I DIDN'T CUT THEM UP TO MY HAIR LINE...IT'S CALLED NEW GROWTH PEOPLE .
Wait that's not the worst...The worst is when a piece falls out and is resting on your shoulder...and you think it's a spider...and you keep swatting yourself and your kids think you have officially lost your mind.
I'm not in the new growth stage yet...I'm still in the hair monster stage.
For those that don't experience this wonderful Phase...count your blessings.
