I held Evan in my lap so that I could get my annual (yes, once a year) haircut this evening. I should be in a fabulous mood, but the hair stylist commented on my hair texture and suggested I get my thyroid checked. Since I can’t afford to do anything about it, I think I was better off not knowing.

Are you still nursing? Or if you just stopped, it could have something to do with it. I wouldn’t worry about thyroid just yet.
Took me almost a year to stop leaking completely after weaning. Most of the hormonal stuff was out of whack for at least that long.
We have a family history of thyroid problems. You should tell your doctor.
I hope not. Thyroid problems suck.
Look for additional signs other that hair texture … you have chemically treated your hair before so that could affect that. There are many many other indicators of thyroid problems, like metabolism, for one. Do some Blingo-ing and ease your mind a little.
Not long after I had my daughter, my hairdresser told me the exact same thing. There is a period after you give birth, about six months or so, that your hair falls out or thins. I did some research and checked with my doctor who confirmed that this is totally normal. You should be back to your beautiful self in no time.
