its ok. I'm 21 and my son is 12 months. You get used to it, your still in the little newborn phase. that phase is HELL! never getting any sleep, exhausted. Of course you love your child tho and you know you wouldnt trade it for the world!

That's what happens when you have sex.  Time to get grow up.

Too late now.  You had him and now you have to take care of him.

wow you women are real supportive tonight!! LOL

Op . talk to your SO about having more help if you feel you need it. Just keep it up and you will get into a routine and things will get easier.

I'm almost 30 and have 4 kids, and i still have days where i think "What was i THINKING?! I"m not ready for this!" lol! 

I think it's pretty normal to feel that way. It's a big adjustment. Just take it one day at a time!

Have you been checked for PPD? I had similar symptoms after the birth of my youngest.

Time will heal this one, try to relax your mind and realize they grow up fast. :-)
