Hello all. My name is Riana, I am a first time mom, and first time home maker. Going through an adjustment period. Haven't attended any new mommy groups, cause I just don't want to leave the house. I got married to my daughters father in march, and that has been an adjustment all on its own. My husband is 12 years older than me, first baby, first marriage. I feel like I am under alot of pressure, and my husband doesn't give me a lot of attention.... So I'm reaching out for moms to talk to, looking for advise, and ideas to help me through

Hello and welcome!

You should talk to your husband about how you are feeling.

Hi Riana! Beautiful picture <3 I know that you must be hurting right now, that everything is new, and that you must feel so overwhelmed right now! All I can offer is advice about h how I've dealt with sorrow...I'd say treat yourself special...take a bath, do your hair, make yourself a delicious meal...ask a friend out family member to watch you're little one and take time for YOU. Sometimes writing all of your frustrations down, frustrations about you're significant other, life in general, can be so powerful and healing. Or, talking to other mamas here also! Its so great that you are reaching out! Big smiles for you and your baby...

Thank you very much for the comment, as well as your advise! I have just started kind of journaling about my frustrations, it does help to get it out on paper. I am thankful for chats for moms, this is wonderful, helps me not feel so alone :)

Welcome to CafeMom Riana,
Being a new mom is an adjustment & am sure with a new marriage even more.
Talk with your husband & let him know how you're feeling.
I agree with the op that you try to get someone to watch your little one so you can ge tout.
Hugs to you & we are here for you :)

Welcome to the group!  The other moms have some great words of wisdom.  You have to let your husband know how you are feeling.  If he won't listen, 'plant a bug' in the ear of his mom or someone that he will listen to.  He may feel like you are nagging him.

Welcome to CafeMom. You have gotten some good advice from the other moms already, I know this must be frustrating for you. Did he pay you more attention before you were married, or is this just his personality? I always say try talking it out, but apparently that's not working for you. If things don't get better, maybe try some counseling. Good luck to you.
