After you have your baby do you go back to normal? I am starting to think I ill be this pipped up, anxious wreak all of my life now. How long doe sit take to recover.?I imagine the baby will be there to keep you happy only I am dreading feeling like I do now after the baby is born as I am quite depressed and have anxiety. Loads of factors contribute to this so its not for no reason I just aint as laid back as I was.
