Does anyone still have days where they feel totally overwhelmed by being a new mum? I love Poppy SOOO much, like falling in love with someone. And simply can't imagine my life without her. But i DO still find it so difficult, mainly the tiredness (of course!), the unpredictability of her mood (i find dealing with her crying so tough some days), the fact that my life is totally unrecognisable from before where i had a good job, working in central London and having a busy social life. I just feel that so little of 'me' outside of the house exists any more. (not that i really want to be back in my old job and in town every day...which i know is a contradiction!) Also, i hate that i sort of battle with my OH about how tired and alone i feel, and get pissed off some days that he's out at work so much. Which i know is awful as he's a brilliant dad, doing night feeds, giving me breaks to go for coffee/ massages, etc. I guess sometimes i just feel isolated and SOOOO responsible for our little girl, and i guess he can never truly know what it feels like to look after and breast feed her all day every day. I still cry some days too - def less than before, but still find myself having a good old bawl, normally at the end of the day when shes crying and i'm exhausted! Am i alone in all this? I have met a few other women at my NCT class who all seem to be in a similar state....but i guess i had higher expectations of me as a mother, and thought i would have been coping with the changes better. End of essay!!!!
