  • I haven't gone through this. There are times I get fustrated. But every mother does. It more sounds like you need a night alone with nothing but Rest and Relaxation in mind. Try getting a sitter for over night.. order your favorite food, and some movies, and a bottle of wine (if you like wine, or some other drink you may enjoy) and just relax. Take a nice warm bath before bed. This normally helps me when I feel down and tired. I normally do it about once a month. So that I can have "me" time. Good luck. PM me anytime you want to talk more about this.

  • Have you had your thyroid checked? After I had my daughter I felt really crapy. Tired all the time really edgy... I had my thyroid checked and it was under active. Now i'm on a low dose of medicine and it has helped a ton. I guess It's pretty comon after prgnancy.
