Hi, just want to chat to people with similar anxiety like myself. My son is now 3 weeks and 1 day old. I got a touch of the baby blues the day before leaving hospital and it slowly started to get better after a few days. I get anxious sometimes usually late afternoon and I guess I've been anxious everyday as my husband went back to work today so I've been thinking about it a lot. He's been such an amazing support person and I always miss him when I'm not with him anyway.
What I want to know is that it's normal right to feel anxious occasionally for first time mums? Reassurance that I'm not going crazy would really help I think. I did see my GP when I had the baby blues and saw him the week after aswell and I had improved drastically. And he explained that it is normal for new parents to feel anxious.
so i would just love to hear people's stories about their anxious moments etc.
and experience in these feelings. I tend to think about things too much and being at home..alone probably doesn't help.
