There's other stuff that happens but I won't go into detail about them because what I really want to blog about today is the hair thing. All through your pregnancy your hair is glorious, shiny and your hair stops falling out. That's right. You don't shed for like--NINE months. Then three or four months after you give birth, they start shedding. Not just a little but GOBS of hair fall out. There's hair on the floor, in the shower, in the crib, clogging the drain, in bed, on your brush, on...well you get the idea. The loss of hair is made even worse because it happens right around the time that the baby starts grabbing at your hair. So every time he grabs at your hair, he's got fistfuls of hair in between his itty bitty fingers. There's so much hair that it begs the question...
"Am I suffering from female patterned baldness?!?!"
So of course I complained to my husband about it. I told him that I was worried because I didn't have this much hair fall out after my daughter was born and that I wondered if it's normal. His response?
"Now you know how I feel."
He suffers from male patterned baldness. But is it really comparable to female patterned baldness? I don't think so. Women over look the loss of hair on a man. In fact, some chicks dig it. But if a woman has a bald head there is no way in hell a man would look twice at her. Shoot, even I would feel sorry for a balding woman and thank my lucky stars that I have hair.
In any event, my hair has started to grow back. But I'm still complaining (what else is new right?). Now, everytime I pull my hair back, there are these little tiny baby hairs sticking up all over my head. So, not only do I look lame in my mommy rags but my hair makes me look like a porcupine.Here's a pic of it:
Guess what my hubb's response was, when I complained about it...
"Lucky." [that it grows back].
