I gave birth to a beautiful girl Sept 11th, she was not due till Oct 5th. In the hospital everything was kind of surreal, when we came home last Wednesday it started to hit that this was real.
I don't feel depressed exactly, just not myself. I keep wondering what we'd be doing if we'd remembered to by condoms that day. Then I feel guilty for wondering. I also wonder when I'm going to feel that special baby mom bond. I feel sort of like I'm babysitting not that she is mine. I have more of a connection to our cats than my daughter. My husband and our family seem to have more of a bond with her than I do.
Is this normal? How long before I talk to a Dr? I don't want to worry my husband anymore that he already is. I have chronic daily headaches similar to migraines, the last couple of days he keeps telling me he's worried about me and I hate that I make him worry. He's afraid that the hormone crash is going to bring the pain on even worse than before.
To top everything off my mom is arriving for a month long visit tomorrow and the house is still torn up for repairs. I just want my life back but I know that will never happen.
