I do believe that one of the sneakiest, least talked about, issues of new motherhood is hair loss. Those pregnancy books that gush over the lustrous hair that you'll have during your nine (or, in my case, ten) months of waiting really do us a disservice by ignoring the inevitable. That hair...that lustrous hair...that which just does not fall out on a daily basis during pregnancy? It's coming out sometime.
And so, along will dealing with too-tight pants and leaking milk, you must also lose all your hair. Oh, I know that the body is just playing catch-up. But, seriously...when I see all that hair in the shower, I'm pretty sure I'm going to need a wig.
And a hair net.
