    It's only natural. Your body has just gone through an enormous change, hormones all over the place and your life has been turned completely upside down. Your allowed to feel off some days, especially dealing with sleep deprivation and getting to know your bub, the good and the bad.

    But I'm sure you would feel all warm and fuzzy when you look at your beautiful little girl.
    Once all those gorgeous little smiles start coming out, you know everything was worth it!

    Hugs xxx

    You are most likely sleep deprived and still only just recovering from having a baby. Couple those things with the biggest change you'll ever have in your life and a dose of hormone surges to boot. It all sounds very normal. It's still very early after giving birth so try to eat well, sleep when you can and get as much help as you can. It took me at least a year to stop feeling overwhelmed. It gets so much better! Keep track of how you're feeling and speak up to friends and family if you continue to feel like this. Congrats on your new bubba!

    Hugs to you. Being a new parent is a difficult shift at times. If your are seeing your EHN or GP I would suggest you mention that. Are these feelings occurring regularly? Anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed are a couple of indicators for PND. I would be checking that out.
