Is there ANYTHING I can do about pp hairloss?

I have hair falling out everywhere.  I keep clogging the drain in the shower-it is literally coming out by the handful. There is hair everywhere in my house, and R loves to pull on my hair, so he ends up with my hair in his hands and all over his clothes.

Seriously. Is there anything I can do? I'm afraid I'll be bald soon.

    I don't think so :(.

    My hair is all crazy because I found out I was pregnant while losing hair from my daughter's pregnancy.  So I have this whole section of hair right now that is super whispy and shortish (which I guess is re-growth from first pregnancy) and now I am losing more hair from my most recent pregnancy.

    I have asked my hair person about any shampoos or things I could do.  Unfortunately, they said that it really can't be helped and they promised I wouldn't be bald.

    I am still taking my prenatal vitamins and fish oil..stopped for bit, mainly b/c I forgot, and the hair loss was BAD, started again being good about it and I swear it's slowed down to normal now..or it could just be that maybe it's just slowing down anyway. Either way, I was nervous too!

    Take vitamins. If you keep your body healthy then your hair should stay healthy as well.
    Sometimes it's okay to follow. (Picture is a clicky)

    I don't think so.  I still take PNV due to BF and mine is still coming out.  Maybe it would be worse if I wasn't, I don't know.

    Anyone know when it stops? My GP told me to keep taking PNV for a year PP regardless of BF'ing or not. I also take a Bcomplex for my tendonitis. Awesome. 33 and I'm already falling apart ...

    you can take biotin.. its a vitamin for your hair and nails.. you can take up to 2000 mg a day... you loose a lot of hair after pregnancy b/c the last 2 months of pregnancy you don't loose any...

    It was really bad around 4 months pp, but it has really slowed down.  Take your vitamins and some biotin and hope it passes quickly.

    Oh my gosh, so totally going through this right now and my hair was really long, too.  i ended up having almost 4 inches cut yesterday and with todays shower, the loss didn't seem as bad-mainly because the hair lost is shorter, I guess.  There have been some serious creatures cloggong the drains this last month,  So gross!  You know, none of the prenatal books I had mentioned this at all!

    My husband is snaking the tub right now, he pulled out a clump big enough to make a wig for my cat. I am just going to add more layers and space out my highlights more to create an "illusion" that I still have enough hair. I've also been doing weekly deep conditioning treatments, but I don't see any improvement.
