  • I would talk with your doc. It sounds like there might be a bit of a hormonal imbalance. The dizziness would have me concerned.

  • yes sounds pretty normal to me, it takes sometime for your hormones to readjust after you have a baby, congrats to you on your new arrival, don't worry it'll (your emotions) will get better, hang in there!!

  • um, I still lose my words and get all jumbled of where am i and what the heck am I doing, I was told that is called "mommy brain" you are adding so much more worry, love, guilt and all over feelings with overwhelming, tired and stressed mixed in there, you are bound to forget some normal everyday things. but the dizziness and over emotional, well, your hormones are in whack yet,. talk to your Doc and let them know how you are feeling

  • I think that what you are feeling is more normal than anyone will want you to believe. I call it "mommy brain". The bursting out in tears and dizziness should subside soon. It is different for everyone. I wish you luck. If you seem overly concerned about anything then call your doc and go get checked.

  • Sounds pretty normal to me. I felt that way after every one of my babies.
    As others said, if it gets worse or is really bothering you, talk to your doctor. But normally it does subside on it's own over time.
