how crazy and out of control i felt (early in the night). she was just normal fussy and i was getting so frustrated because dh had work overnight last night, my dog was being a pain and she was fussy and i felt so out of control. we made it through just fine
I can understand that one!! When I have my bad days DD seems to know and feel it, making it a bad day for her too.....you know hwo they say that a smile is contagious......I think every feeling is contagious. If your having a bad day and you are rude to someone....then that person get's grumpy and the cycle begins. It's soo hard to not pass it on to the kids. They are soo in tune to our bodies, They know we dont' feel good so they don't feel good which makes them even crankier. It's one of the things I HATE about this. No little one deserves to feel upset or cranky just because we do. It used to really bother me because DD never smiled when she was around me. she would for everyone else but when it was just her and I she wouldn't. mainly because I wasn't smiling at her. now as long as I am on my meds she and I will laugh and smile all day long!
Anyway I'm glad you guys made it thru the night. how are you guys holding up otherwise? Have you talked to your Dr about getting some help? I really encourage it!! Just remember it's ok to put her down and take a few minutes for your self if you need too.
i can't get in till my 6 week pp appt which is feb 1 then i'll hopefully be back on my meds. i always try to be calm before getting her or feeding her or whatever but when she's overtired and screaming it is difficult
Well Feb 1st isn't to far away. you can also try to just think happy thorughts...I know it can be hard to do but when you are feeding her or cuddling with her think about sitting on a beach with her or something just as relaxing. That way your body will relax and she won't feel the stress in it.
