Truthfully...I am totally fine for the first 6 weeks. After that...I go thru a period of about 6 weeks where it's hard, really hard. The sleep deprivation has set in, the initial "cloud nine" has started to wear off, a daily pattern has started but is still so new it's hard to adapt, but everyone seems to think post partum is over and I am back to normal.

Truly, i would consider having someone (or a couple someone's) come for a little while after those six weeks. It will allow you plenty of bonding time and your hormones will level out a bit so you might be more accepting of someone in your space. Plus, you may want to start venturing out out of boredom and having someone else can make that easier and possible.

For the record...I think post partum help is wonderful and rarely a "wasted trip." But I was just suggesting how I could maximize it for ME. Everyone is a little different

Congrats to BF (and you) on the great job news!!
