I am very lucky to be a sahm with a 4 month (18 wk) old son. I absolutely love it. But today, my fil made a comment that I need to start separating myself from him. I've spent maybe 6 hrs away from him since he's been born. I have a mom and a mil that are chomping at the bit to babysit. But everytime I even think about leaving him, I get really bad anxiety. I've always had anxiety and have been medicated for it for about 2 yr now. It's been a lot better since I went on medicine. Except for lately. I'm not depressed or anything. I've been very happy. Except when I think about leaving Bennet with anyone besides my husband. I get a thousand butterflis in my stomach, my chest feels heavy, I feel like crying, and my hands get all shaky and sweaty. So, how did all of you handle leaving your child with someone for the first time? Should I talk to my dr?
