Since the minute I found out I was pregnant and started to share it with others... it was all about me. Then the baby was born and it was all about her. That makes sense right.... well what no one tells the mother is how much support she will need once the baby arrives.
Giving birth is the most amazing, traumatic, painful, blissful, wonderful experience.... I can remember being alone for the first time in the delivery room just crying for no reason! I was happy and overwhelmed all at the same time... people looked at me like- why are you crying?!- there was a lot of random crying the first month.
I am doing well now- overwhelmed and a control freak, but you know that's not much different then the pre-baby me... I need to work on some things
- letting others help
- being nice to my husband and realizing that he is just trying to help- the best he can
- allow time for myself- with out the baby
- spend more time- just adults- and not talk about the baby the whole time
All my focus and energy is on being a mom- I need to work on just being me ....
