DS #2 was born on 8/31. I have been "playing" super mom and have faked everyone. Well, it has all caught up with me! I have a hard outer shell, so I think that masks what is really going on. At my 6 week PP appointment, I expressed my concerns and it was suggested that I have my iron levels checked, as I had very low iron throughout my pregnancy and needed iron infusions. I spent all day at the hospital yesterday getting a 6 hour iron infusion. My iron level wasn't nearly as low as it was throughout my pregnancy, but this should help me maintain a more normal level.
Bottom line is that I am tired of everyone saying that I'm just feeling down because I don't get enough sleep. Great thought, but am I just supposed to continue to tough it out until DS begins sleeping more than 3 hours at a time?! I am very anxious, aggitated, can't focus, and completely stressed out! Between DS #1 who is 2.5 and DS #2 who is going to be 3 months at the end of the month and working from home, I might lose my mind!
My plan is to contact my OB on Thursday when the office is open to see if he will write a script for me. I think he's big on Lexapro, yet it takes 2 weeks or so before it kicks in. Anyone on it currently? Any thoughts about it?
