Postpartum

    The first two weeks were like that for me. Every evening I would just cry, sometimes for no reason, sometimes because I was thinking about a couple of things I struggled with. I agree getting fresh air when you can, it made a big difference. I also talked

  • I have been feeling the same way. DH goes back to work tomorrow and I'm feeling particularly anxious. I'm about to make a list of things to do tomorrow around the house to see if that will keep my mind off the fact that he won't be here. I have become so

  • I was like this the first two weeks as well. It is a big adjustment but it does get better. If you feel like it is getting worse definitely tell your doctor and reach out to family and friends for extra support. Also, telling new moms to sleep when their

  • I basically did nothing but take care of my baby and randomly cry for the first four weeks of DS's life.  I would cry at songs, commercials (the Subaru one where the dad puts his daughter on the school bus was a doozie); but I would also just cry
