When will I start to feel like myself again?

So, the baby is now 3 months old and my partner is back at work full-time. Now that I’m by myself with her, I am noticing how I still really don’t feel like myself. Is this normal? When will I?

I felt the same way. There’s so much to adjust to! New body, new schedule, new family dynamic, Give yourself time but also check in with a doctor if you feel it worsening. Here for you mama! 0 Likes

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. We need to talk more about postpartum depression. But it is normal to feel this way, too. Take it one day at a time and talk to other new mom’s. It helps! 0 Likes

A lot of things can make us feel not ourselves. Hormone changes, postpartum depression, diet, not enough sleep. Hope this helps. 0 Likes

Oh, I thought you said your child was 3 years old and I thought “Good it’s not just me...😉” I still miss aspects of my life before kids! You’ll find over time it gets easier but being alone with the baby in the house day after day is a prescription for disaster. I know COVID doesn’t make it easy, but you have to get out of that house and around other people. Even 6 feet apart is better than feeling so isolated at home with this enormous responsibility on your shoulders. I kept the TV on when I was home just hear other voices. 0 Likes

Yes it’s normal and sometimes just take a minute to yourself and just relax and enjoy a moment 0 Likes
