a lot of the time when i go to take a nap, when i wake up it's in a pool of sweat and i'm terrified and just start balling

  • its the hormones! i remember that after having my first. you're hormones drop quickly after having a baby causing all kinds of crazy shit to happen, this will probably happen for a few more weeks from what i remember. congrats on being a new mommy!!!

  • i could'nt sleep for about 2 months after having my son even if i knew someone was watching him. I was always worried and hovered over him to make sure he was breathing and not too hot...and to make sure he was looked after...its 1st time mommy syndrome

  • it's not me being worried about my baby- i know shes safe, i'm not overprotective at all.

    it's strictly something my body is doing. my mother also said it was hormones
