hello ladies, it has been a while. I had my beautiful baby boy Riley on 12/23/04 he was 9 pounds and 21 1/4 inches long. I progressed well but couldn't get him out he just wouldn't come down. I was about to kill the nurses because they had refused me medication for pain and by the time they decided to do a C-section I was nearly jumping off the table in pain. But finally had a section and he came out perfectly healthy. He is doing good and growing fast. I on the other hand am still fighting to regain sanity. I have a bladder infection and have to take antibiotics which give me diarhea, nausea and I haven't been able to eat for almost 6 days now. On top of that I had to go back on Paxil which I was on before I got pregnant for anxiety because out of the blue about 6 days after he was born I started having a lot of anxiety. I have only been taking it for 3 days and am still waiting for the meds to kick in so I am pretty miserable with the anxiety but am still enjoying time with my little man. I hope that everyone is doing well and having an easier time than myself. take care
Congrats on the birth of Riley!! Oh, I LOVE that name, by the way. I wish you all the best - and that the meds will kick in soon. Is this your first child? It is a very anxious time for you, no doubt. Rest as much as you can (yeah, right, huh?) and enjoy him while he is little. THey grow up waaaay to fast!!
Congrats again and hope you get to feeling better soon!
Congrats on your little one! It is very common for women to experience anxiety after having a baby. And I'm sure with a history of it only makes it harder. Hang in there! It will get easier...the 1st 2 months are very hard!! But it only gets better with time
