With my first it took about 4 weeks for me to start to feel more normal but the sleep deprivation continued for a longer than that. I really started to feel a lot better once I stopped breastfeeding and at 3 months I felt pretty much back to normal.
It definitely gets better even though it's hard to see that it will when you're this early on.
Kelly, Mom to Christopher Shannon 9.27.06, Catherine Quinn 2.24.09, Trey Barton lost on 12.28.09, Therese Barton lost on 6.10.10, Joseph Sullivan 7.23.11, and our latest, Victoria Maren 11.15.12
Secondary infertility success with IVF, then two losses, one at 14 weeks and one at 10 weeks, then success with IUI and then success with condoms! Who would ever have guessed.
This Cluttered Life
DS1 is 2.5 and it is still hard. I love the kid to death, but he is definitely "spirited" to say the least. He was super fussy as a baby until he could walk. He never napped well. He just loves to know about everything and anything and doesn't want to miss a single second. He is curious and caring, but he is handful as well.
DS2 is the easiest kid alive. He was easy from day 1. I am only telling you this to give you some perspective. I asked this question about DS1 and most people said 12ish weeks. But when that didn't happen I was really let down. Just ride it out and realize you have very little control over when things get easier. The best thing is to just go easy on yourself!
