Check in here:

When did you give birth?

What is baby's name?

How are you feel physically?

How are you feeling mentally/emotionally?

Do you have the Baby Blues at all?

How are you keeping up with a baby, housework, your job, other kids, etc?

Is being a mommy of one/one more easier or harder than you imagined?

Anything else you want to add?

When did you give birth? One week ago

How are you feel physically? I think I'm pretty much healed physically. But I am exhausted. My daughter eats about every 3-4 hours but she's also waking once or twice in the night needing to be burped and soothed (even though I burp her with every feeding).

How are you feeling mentally/emotionally? worn thin

Do you have the Baby Blues at all? Given how many times I cried yesterday over tiny things, I would say, "yes."

How are you keeping up with a baby, housework, your job, other kids, etc? I think I'm keeping up with housework about as well as I normally do. The baby I can manage. I have not kept up with my job--I meant to start again yesterday and didn't. My husband has been doing most of the care for the older kids so far. he went back to work yesterday afternoon and I somehow managed to not put the kids down for a nap. So we'll see how I do with them today.

Is being a mommy of one/one more easier or harder than you imagined? I don't know if I can judge just yet.

When did you give birth? 2 weeks ago today

What is baby's name? Lucas Jaymes

How are you feel physically? I am doing o.k...Recovered really quick from the c-section.

How are you feeling mentally/emotionally? drained....I have been sick since the beginning of June as well, and it is just starting to get better.

Do you have the Baby Blues at all? I would say yes....Have been crying and knowing this will be out last makes me a bit sad..:-(

How are you keeping up with a baby, housework, your job, other kids, etc? SO-So..Lucky my husband is off the whole summer cause I would not be able to manage....

When did you give birth? July 5

What is baby's name? Christian Patrick

How are you feel physically? Overall great! I have been dealing with headaches thou since delivery.

How are you feeling mentally/emotionally? I had a HORRID breakdown while in the hospital and asked my dr to put me on something for PPD (had bad case with middle child). So now that meds in full force I'm doing great.

Do you have the Baby Blues at all? Not really. I'm totally enjoying not being PG anymore and enjoying my little guy.

How are you keeping up with a baby, housework, your job, other kids, etc? So totally not.... I have so much stuff piling up around me and/or not getting done at all. Baby is #1 priority.

Is being a mommy of one/one more easier or harder than you imagined? Since my oldest 2 are pretty self sufficient it has been easier than I thought. But, it does have its own "quicks" as well.

Other than that we are doing pretty good. We work hard on eating healty meals and keeping our toddler happy by doing a lot of famiy activities.

When did you give birth? June 28th

What is baby's name? Lincoln Edward

How are you feel physically? Great most of the time, although a little tired :)

How are you feeling mentally/emotionally? Some days are better than others. He's in a crying stage, which is getting stressful.

Do you have the Baby Blues at all? I did a few days in the week after he was born, but not too bad.

How are you keeping up with a baby, housework, your job, other kids, etc? Um, not keeping up with housework well at all! I'm doing the basics, and I've decided I can't get this time when he's small back if I miss it, so I'm enjoying him as much as possible!

Is being a mommy of one/one more easier or harder than you imagined? He's my first and it's both easier and harder, depending on the moment.
