Does anyone esle with a new baby feel quite lonely or isolated at times? im lucky to have had my husband off work for three weeks to help with Elliot, but even still ive been feeling quite lonely in a way and i know it'll seem worse once hes at work and im by myself. Ive had people offering help-but i know most are being polite and have their own commitments ie work or their own kids. i really wish i could turn to my mom, but shes got problems with her health, and isnt very mobile etc so even though shed love to help, i cant let her...to be honest i dont totally trust her i know that sounds bad. its a long story. my sister is the only person i trust with my life, but shes juggling three kids-one at nursery in afternoon and two at a different school. shes also having personal probs (possible miscariage) so i cant really ask her for much right now although she has made me lunch twice when i was struggling with the b-feeding and hadnt eaten at all. sorry this is getting long, just need to get off my chest... im the first of my close friends to have a baby, so its difficult for them to understand and are enjoying their lives. i love Elliot to bits, but didnt realise id feel so alone. once hes a bit older i plan joining some mom n toddler groups etc but for now ive just got my husband (whos helping loads, but obviously hes tired too and will be back at ork). am i the only one feeling like this? keely.
