Is anyone else feeling sad? Some days I feel fine, other days I feel pretty sad and cry for nothing. Today is one of those days and I hate this feeling. I know things will straighten out before long. I can't wait!

Not sad, but overwhelmed and jealous of DH. It'll get better!

I'm not too bad right now. DP is being super supportive and my mum has really taken Daniel off my hands while I heal. It will hit me in a couple of weeks I think when DP has to be away for 5 days for his mum's birthday and his custody case in court. I'm going to find that very tiring and not sure how I'll fare with the lack of sleep.

I was anxious in the beginning wondering if I could successfully breastfeed without supplementing. I worried over the latch, over the amount of wet diapers, and everything else! We successfully got through all of that and are doing well. Now I'm worried about returning to work. I think I may have a nervous breakdown when it happens. I only have two 1/2 more weeks.

Some nights I get overwhelmed, & depressed. Days are fine, but nights have been rough lately. Adalyn isn't very happy at night. DH was also working nights the past two weeks, leaving me alone with both girls for bed time & such which didn't help. I'm feeling a bit better with my mom here though & now DH is back on days.

I get overwhelmed sometimes at night too. We have good nights, then we have nights when she just wants to be awake. Thankfully, she is a pretty happy baby though so this time around it's easier in general.

I have my moments of depression. I've been ok the past few days, the dip in my mood is definitely linked to how much rest I get and when I don't get much I become down right inconsolable. I think I'm finally starting to feel better but for a while I thought it was getting worse.

I also agree with everyone who says nights are the worst. I think it was a combination of my body not understanding why I was awake in the middle of the night and also the loneliness - feeling like I was the only person awake.

Not clinically depressed but I sometimes get really upset after being alone with him all day if he is fussy.

He is pretty alert during the day and sometimes I am so tired my patience runs very thin. His Dad doesn't get home till late so I am alone with him for 10 hours or so, there are visitors now and then and we will go to his Nanoo's across the road but for the most part it's me and the babe.

I actually really dislike this whole thing so far...I knew I would though. Just have to wait it out until he is a little bigger.

I know what you mean. Everyone I talked to who I actually confided in (not really wanting to deal with a newborn) said, "Oh no, you'll love it. It'll grow on you. You'll yearn for those days when she gets older." Well, they were so off base! Yes, I love her. I love her so much I can't believe it. Honestly. But she just eats, poops and sleeps. All day. Every day. I can't wait for more interaction and a baby. Not an infant. I don't see myself ever wishing she's a newborn again. Not a fan.

Hear, hear.

I will so NOT be yearning for these days.

But I am really looking forward to when he is a little boy - that'll be awesome.
