Hi, I can't complain and don't want this to sound that way, but after being pregnant and giving birth, I now feel so boring and normal!
I had a miscarriage last year October, then got married in November. Fell pregnant again in December, gave birth in September. It's been a big year, and I felt special being pregnant, everyone was excited, I wore maternity clothes, people on the street could see our little miracle. Then she was born, and walking with her the first few weeks or even without her was very special, and still everyone could see I just gave birth, I felt special and proud. Now my little angel is 7 weeks, I fit back in my old clothes, I walk normal again, and if I don't take her with me, no one could tell I just had a baby.
Is it normal to feel this way, disappointed in a way, not feeling special anymore? I don't really have anyone around me, my family is overseas and my husband only has a sister who lives 2 hour flight away. I do have friends, but they're mainly from work and they haven't even come to visit. I stopped working a week before giving birth and it has been very hectic for them since, but still, a bit of support would have been nice, only had 1 phone call.
Anyway, I've never been the most social person, only a few good friends, but now that I feel a bit of an anticlimax after this whole baby-adventure, I'm not sure whether it is loneliness or depression or just normal.
I am joining mum groups etc and visit some local centers, hope to meet some other mums soon.
Baby is doing really well and I have had no issues at all during the pregnancy or afterwards. I know I am very lucky with that, but just wanted to put this out there, it actually makes me feel better
