    shattered, overwhelmed, emotional, unsure.
    It does get easier these feelings gradually diminish and then comes the glorious day that you are rewarded with a smile, then bubbs sleeps through, then bubbs babbles and squeeks, then bubs sits up, crawls, walks, calls you mama, come to you for cuddles and make you laugh so hard you cry.
    it does get easier :hugs:

    Its normal to feel like that. just remember among all the chaos, that you make sure you get some good food into you, it can make a big difference.

    The first few weeks are rough, your adjusting to a whole new life! It'll get easier as you get used to it :hugs:
    The first 5 months were so hard for me, the lack of sleep, the fact that Kathryn didn't do all that much (she was very alert and did smile, she just didn't play much), and I was suffering from PND. Now that Kathryn plays, sits up, smiles ALL THE TIME and laughs a lot its so wonderful! She is always in a good mood now, and it's the best thing in the world! She is so happy playing by herself for a while now, so I can get stuff done around the room and work on my art. It's just so amazing watching her grow and change and get aware and purposeful every day.

    I was totally overwhelmed for weeks. And the total exhaustion just made it worse. Its only the last week or so it feels like it's starting to fall into place and i'm starting to love being a mum!

    Just like all the others have said, totally overwhelmed. I still feel that way some days, but overall it gets easier as time goes by.

    Very overwhelmed and tired. I cried everyday for the first 2 weeks. Now onto week 3 and it's already getting a bit better. I'm starting to understand LO a little more so I can help him when he's upset. I'm just very very tired since I take care of LO all day alone (OH works long hours)
