I'm having a hard time with these hormones. I feel irritated, worried, tearful and angry often. Last night I was informed I have become a pretty negative person. Which leads me to the question: who am I now? Am I becoming an unlikeable person? Are these hormones forever gonna make me this way or maybe it's not the hormones and I'm just becoming this negative, judgemental and angry person.
I don't think it's postpartum depression, it might be the blues or it may just be me. Either way, I'm not into it.

my hormones didn't like me after both boys. i had a tough time. don't feel like you can't seek someone out to chat with--made a world of difference for me. i have someone i now see regularly (different reason than having a baby) and she is awesome. let me know if you want her name/number.

no matter what, you are a great woman jenny g :)

I think it's a little normal to feel that way sometimes. at least i HOPE so or i'm in the same boat as you! i was much worse with belle than with george, but it WILL get better! it's just hard to adjust to having someone or something physically attached to you 6+ hours a day for feeding/pumping. eventually, it will get better, but i would suggest talking to your doc if you aren't happy with you. if you know something isn't quite right with you, have a chat with your doc and see if it really IS normal or not. :)
hang in there girl! you are a GREAT mommy! I am certain of it!
