Before I gave birth to my daughter, I expected my life to be at a stand-still. I expected change. I expected sleep deprivation.
I didn’t expect it to be such a shock.
I think I tried to psych myself out for all the changes, but I didn’t realize how profound the changes were going to be.
I’m in some sort of “new mother shock.”
It’s wierd for me to sleep when she sleeps.. but I LOVE those nap times. At the same time, I feel so unproductive and lazy. It’s left me conflicted. I’m so tired, but I feel like I’m not pulling any weight in the day-to-day functions of our little household..
I also feel like I don’t have time to upkeep myself. I feel fat and frumpy and just not myself.
My maternity clothes are starting to get too big, but my pre-prego clothes are still too small..
I’m in a wierd transition period..
How did you feel in the first month of “motherhood?”
