Re: I'm going bald!!

Maybe you could find a referral to a nutritionist through WIC or something? Maybe you're deficient in some nutrient or vitamin? Are you still taking multivitamins? My OTC multis turned out to be better than the prenatals I had an Rx for (doh!) I lost a lot of hair after DD was born...I don't remember exactly when it started or stopped though. Did they cut your hair with thinning shears, by chance? If they did you will probably shed for a while. The thyroid angle sounds kinda like it might be the cause too. If it doesn't stop in about 3 months you definitely need to investigate further; hair growth cycles usually go in about 3 month intervals and pregnancy causes a lot of them to go "in-sync" (high fever can do that too).
HTH!
