I find it difficult feeding too sometimes Shifter - don't know if it's the same as you but sometimes I just want some time to myself and want my body to my self for a bit (!), I do express at night so that the last feed is expressed milk which means that I can go to bed before Elliot if I need to, DP likes it because he gets to do one feed a day.
How did you get on at the drs Aly?
My therapy session got cancelled and rearranged for 14th June which really got me down, felt like I wasn't being taken seriously and didn't need the support that much. Spoke to my hv who was really really lovely and came and spoke to me for an hour and said she'll ring them tomorrow and try and sort something out.
Well iv been to the docs this afternoon and he as increased my tabs from 15 to 20 mg a day so hopefully soon il be able to see a diff in myself
He also said putting my hand thro a window was stupid (as if i didnt no )
Elm im sooo sorry your appointment as been moved its so good of your hcv to do that mine would just tell me to wait
Glad your HV was helpful elm, hopefully she'll kick them into shape for you!
I'm feeling fed up again tonight. Jack was grizzling all evening and hubby was out with work peeps. My mum came over to help me out, which was brilliant, but I'm still shattered. I made the mistake of responding to a request for example birth plans from one of the hypno-mums still expecting and reading through my birth plan has made me really upset. I put a bit at the end for in case of hospital transfer and said about wanting to avoid a c-section, especially for FTP. But that was what I got, despite being armed with stacks of knowledge and awareness, in the end I didn't avoid what was possibly an unnecessary C/S
My hv suggested writing a letter to the hospital about my birth experience, she said it didn't have to be a letter of complaint and I didn't have to send it but it was worth considering. I'm hoping to talk it through in therapy first to come to terms with what happened so I can move on and hopefully enjoy another pregnancy at some point. I'm sure it's part of the reason I've got PND.
Is Jack asleep now? That's a lovely photo - he's gorgeous! Hope things have quietened down and you've got a bit of time to yourself x
I was advised by the homebirth ladies to get my notes and go over them with an IMW. I've written to the hospital to request my notes, so once they arrive I'll be doing that. I think it will help to get an impartial opinion on how things developed. In a way I want to hear that the C/S was unnecessary as I can then better trust that my body would have done it on its own and therefore is capable of doing it in the future. Right now I just don't trust that my body can do it and really don't want to risk a repeat experience.
What happened at your birth elm hun? Would it help you to talk it over with a MW?
And yes, Jack went to sleep about 9.30 and slept through his dream feed at 11.30 right through until 4.45! The photo in my avatar is my favourite
HV told me to book an app with dr to see about getting treatment. Can someone explain the 'treatment' please?
It depends on you and your doctor. Some people find counselling very valuable in getting through depression, others find cognitive behavioural therapy the best option and some take anti-depressant medication. Unfortunately some doctors will prescribe drugs without really taking the time to find out what might be best for the individual. I suggest making sure you talk through all the options with your doctor.
IM sorry you may have PND too
on the very 1st page ther is a list of treatments tht you culd look up on the internet this will be easier for you as some of the treatments may be a bit hard to explain without confusing you
Im taking tabs to help me plus im going for some one to one conciling
