Here's where I spill the beans about my postpartum craziness....it's not what you'd expect, though! I will confess that postpartum hormones are terrible. I thought I'd been through everything hormonally with my Lupron treatments and pregnancy in general, but boy, was I wrong?! For me the postpartum part was the worst. I'm sure it's different for every girl, though.
Anyhow, back to the subject. Other than general crankiness from sleep deprivation, I really never felt depressed, super overwhelmed, sad, etc. after coming home with Cale; therefore, I didn't have the 'baby blues' or depression. What I did struggle with is quite the laughing matter, really, now that I think about it. I shed tears. Many tears. I had anxiety. Fluttery stomach. Sweaty palms. Rapid breathing. Restlessness. Over my Master Bedroom. Yup, you read correctly. My master bedroom caused me to go nuts. All of the sudden I was completely unhappy and uncomfortable with our bedroom, decor, and such. It no longer was a place where I felt restful, so I temporarily moved to the spare bedrooom over this nonsense. I tried to explain these feelings to Alan, who mostly looked at me with a confused blank stare. Can you blame him?!
Long story short. I'm selling the furniture in our room and attempting to re-vamp the decor on a small budget. All because of my stupid hormones. I'm totally blaming these irrational, crazy thoughts on my post-baby hormones, because in general, I'm not crazy or irrational at all.
I'm thankful for my very understanding husband ;) and I hope you found some amusement in my postpartum craziness! I wanted to share this with all my pregnant or soon-to-be pregnant friends just so you know that your times 'a coming!
