my name is sarah and im new to this forum. i have a 3 month old daughter named athena. she's my everything!!! my husband and i are waiting to ttc our 2nd child together until 2016. although ik it's best to wait and there's so much that i know i want to get done before we start ttc, it nearly kills me to wait too. baby fever hits me hard when i'm out shopping and i see all the little baby stuff...especially since my daughter is a baby, so i have to go through that section.
but at the same time, like i said, i know there's plenty that i really should and really want to get done first. i also feel like i need to just get used to having my daughter...enough that i don't get so overwhelmed...which i am getting better about, but i still have a ways to go since i'm a new mom. my husband is wonderful with helping me out though. he has 4 sons from a past relationship, and he had a stepdaughter as well. so he does know plenty about raising kids to where it makes it a million times easier on me than what i know it would be if we were both first time parents.
anyway, i also came in here because i'd like to get to know you ladies and also get advice from you from time to time and just have someone to talk to!! it's been extremely overwhelming for me. i've battled the ppd...or at least, that's what the dr said it sounded like. i feel like whatever it was is definately subsiding, so idk if it was in fact ppd or if it was baby blues. we're also struggling right now financially which i feel horrible about. i grew up never having to go without, and i definately don't want athena to go without anything...although i know for a fact that she won't. i'm currently frustrated with the drs too. she went for her 2 month checkup and i was told that she may have torticollis. they said that if it's not treated then it could affect her eye sight in the future. so i had to make an appointment with the physical therapist to have it checked, which she then said she believes that athena does in fact have torticollis...although it's very mild.
so she's supposed to go to pt every other monday, which this past monday was her appt. the dr wasn't there...no call or anything to tell us she wasn't in. my husband drove her there and had to find out when he arrived. i'm still angry about it...especially seeing as i've never liked drs to begin with. so now we have to wait until her next appt because they're apparently just gonna skip it altogether this time! >
anyway...i'm sorry i'm already unloading all this but honestly i just don't know what to do anymore. i feel like i'm being told to take her to all these appts for things that could cause this or could cause that, and i still don't have any answers as to if she's ok or not.
