Who else is losing hair by the handfuls?

it took me 2 years to grow my hair out (I got it cut too short when I was pregnant with Ella)...I've had a couple of trims and that's it...My hair is the longest it's been since I was a teenager...Which I think is making this hair loss worse...I'm always picking hair off of Jakob (not to mention he's starting to pull it)....I shower and pull out handful after handful of hair...so this afternoon i'm going in to get it cut, probably to my shoulders *sigh*

My hair has also started to fall out like crazy!It's on everything. I think it's worse because my hair is long and I notice it on everything a whole lot more. I have to keep my hair tied up all the time or it drives me bonkers.

I'm not cutting my hair either... lol I've grown it out for my wedding, so I have to keep it long until June at least!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

Mine comes out in handfuls in the shower. I fill a brush in the morning with hair. Then I am constantly pulling it out from between Lila's toes Mine is also past my shoulders. I was going to chop it off but someone mentioned that this happened to them and that the hair loss stopped when baby was around 7 months. I am going to hold out hope a little longer

my hair was about in the middle of my back, and I cut it to my collar bone...It's still long, but easier to deal with now...Once the hair starts to grow back, it looks horrible! i'm not looking forward to that at all....after everything we go through, we have to lose our hair on top of it! it's not fair lol

I'm losing mine by the handful too. I wear it tied back every day and when I take the ponytail holder out it's all tangled with hair. And the shower drain - it's totally full every time I take a shower. I haven't had mine cut yet, I go next weekend for a cut and highlights, I think I'm going to keep it long but hopefully she can help clean it up.

My hair is falling out as well! It needs to be colored so bad - I look borderline homeless at this point but I am afraid to wash or brush it. Everytime I do it seems like half of it falls out. I don't want to lose my hair!
