Hey ladies, this is my 1st post on this board.. I've been lurking for a couple weeks reading some of the questions and I figured this would be the best place to share my story/concern and hope for some advice or input for those ladies that have felt the same way as I do.
I have not been diagnosed with PPD or PPA yet, not sure if I truly have it even.. but I definitely know I'm extremely anxious about one specific thing regarding my LO..
I am terrified of taking her out of the house. I get really anxious when I know we have to go somewhere, like the doctor's. I have only taken her on 3 or 4 walks around our apt. complex since she was born. (she will be 6 weeks tomorrow).
Also, my 6 week pp appt is tomorrow and DH will be at work, so this is the very first outing I have to do with just myself and DD.. I cannot explain to you how anxious I am feeling about this. I have actually been anxious about this trip since I made the appt almost 6 weeks ago...
Am I the only one who is completely paralyzed by the thought of taking their LO outside of the home? What did you do to help conquer that fear?
