Default I'm a postpartum mess!

I have been losing weight steadily - at least I have that going for me. But the rest of me is a mess! My hair is falling out EVERYWHERE. I'm constantly picking it off of everything. My face is breaking out SO bad. I hate this part.

This will be of no consolation at all - but I am still losing hair, and DS is 11 months. I am still breastfeeding though, so that may have something to do with it.

My face is breaking out but I haven't started loosing hair yet. I was washing my hair this morning and thinking "wonder when my hair is going to start to fall out" I would gladly skip that part

I hated shedding so much! I think it's finally stopped now, but for awhile, I was having to vacuum all the time to get all my %#$@ hair off the carpet.

Hope you feel better soon!

I know it's hard, but it'll pass soon.

Yeah, I remember that part VIVIDLY. My hair was a hot ass mess, my skin was breaking out on both of my cheeks and I was about a shade or two darker for some reason. I couldnt wear any of my old makeup and had to buy new stuff.

I felt HORRIBLE.

I hear ya. I thought I had my fill of crazy hormone symptoms (being blazing HOT all of the time, hair falling out, wanting to cause bodily harm to complete strangers ), but my face started breaking out really bad recently. And they are the kind that are way under the skin and last forever.

It's a good thing these babies are worth it!!

The worst thing for me is the constant milk leakage... yeah, wet spots all over my clothes are REAL attractive, and the feel and smell are so gross too. And the linea nigra that was so cute when I was pregnant is so not cute any more.

I haven't started to lose hair yet and am praying that the Lord spares me that!

Jane Carter Solution makes this scalp therapy thingy in a medicne dropper that you just put on your scalp. My hair was wretched during pregnancy but got much better afterwards. I think using the scalp therapy helped. There's also a hair therapy that's not so bad but it smells really strong.

As for skin, again I had the opposite issue. Maybe a facial would help?

I hear ya. I didn't breastfeed AT ALL, and I am STILL leaking breast milk, and my child will be 5 months old on Tuesday.
