I gave birth to my healthy, beautiful boy this Nov 3. The first week was a whirlwind. I couldn't keep up with texts, phone calls and Facebook posts. And then it got quiet again.
I felt loneliness after I went through the ordeal with him, but put my energy into healing the first month. I then focused all my energy on my pregnancy, getting ready for baby, and birth.
After the first week after birth, I started to feel extreme loneliness. I compare it to extreme homesickness as a child. My parents and sister live in town, and I've cried and talked to them. They have been very helpful and great to me, but it's the quiet nights when it really hits me. I love my baby and feel good otherwise. I'm just extremely overwhelmed.
I don't have any desire to be in a relationship, but I really need some comfort. I'll be going back to work soon, hopefully that helps some.
I'm looking for comfort, advice, or just an ear.
