Feeling Blue

I am a new mommy of a beautiful 10 day old girl. I am filled with all this emotions happiness, joy, love, and sadness. The sadness is hard to deal with at times just for the fact that I am alone most of the day plus at night it is just me as well. My husband works out of a union hall so he sporadically has jobs come up. Would you know it he gets a nice long span of work right when the baby is born. So I am home alone most of the day and at night my husband sleeps. So for 24 hours it is me and the baby. My family is supportive which is good they come over when they can to help out. They all work too and I can't expect them to drop everything. I also had an unexpected c-section so I can't drive or go up the stairs. I am just feeling very isolated. Being a new mom I worry about everything and it is just nice to have someone there to help calm me down or ensure me that everything is fine.  I want my husband to be home too to bond with the baby.

hugs!

congrats on the new bundle!

I've been there feeling so many different emotions after birth. Its easier to say than do, but relax!

he will bond with the little one no problem. From what I hear and have scene, guys bond and do more with babies when they do more than just sleep and poop. :)

have any hobbies?

I like to write I actually have a journal and I write poetry but I haven't done much writing since the baby has come home. I just feel like I am constantly wondering if I am doing everything right for the baby. Checking her breathing making sure she is laying right in bed and reading the enormous amount of papers the hospital and pediatriciangave me. I feel like I am on information overload. Thank you for the encouragement.

It can definitely be hard and overwhelming at times - especially with limited sleep!
It'll get easier!!
