Not always knowing why she cries! It breaks my heart and makes me very upset, which results in her getting even more upset! Especially during the bad days where she has pain in her tummy or just refuses to sleep!
I'm not worrying about the future yet, trying to just get through the day to start with!
I find the never ending days of housework feeding changing & looking after little one the hardest ... Every day seems the same & she's at the age where she's not all the interested in everything yet...
Lack of sleep and worrying about what I'm going to do about the bills when my maternity finishes
And when my little girl cries with reflux and I can't do anything to help her
And worrying about whether um doing a good job and will in the future... So many things!!
4- A little bit sad that me and my Dh relationship has changed, I know it has to evolve and change and as happy as we both are with LO, I do miss the old "us", does that sound awful?
I don't think that sounds aweful at all! I miss the old 'us' with my hubby as well , I think it's only normal! Hopefully when you get into a bit of a routine you'll have a bit more time to spend with hubby and as LO gets older you'll have a fab time as a little family! I personally can't wait!
Hardest part initially was adjusting to her schedule - like, I wake up when she does, I don't go to sleep until after her last bottle, I have to adjust my plans to make sure I'm somewhere I can feed her at a certain time, I can't go out on the spur of the moment if she's napping, nights out just don't happen any more. It was just really tough getting used to organising my life around the whims of an infant.
Now she's a little bit older, she's more flexible and I've learned to relax a bit so it's getting easier.
The mental exhaustion, always thinking when her next feed is, next nap due, bath time, bed time, fitting in the shopping, cleaning, baby groups, cooking, seeing family friends, packing the car, packing the changing bag, not running out of formula/wipes/nappy bags/clothes that fit, swimming lessons, yoga class, taking books to and from library, ordering passports, changing cot sheets, and fitting all this around everyday life and more often on that on interrupted sleep. Phew I'm tired just writing that!
