I posted on in the Mental Health section but there doesn't seem to be anyone about today
I think I'm beginning to realise that most people don't feel like this (or do they? I'm not sure)
DS is 10 months old and I still find it all so hard. Although he's not a dreadful sleeper I haven't had a proper night's sleep since he was born. I find myself in tears quite a lot and feeling down - I'm always 'starting again' to pick myself back up if that makes sense. And it does usually work for a while. My problem is that I just don't know what the parameters are for feeling down, as a new first-time mum - is this how most people feel in the first year? I know other mums but those that I know really well cope fine and the ones that I don't know as well have much harder things to deal with and I wouldn't dream of starting to moan on to them.
I find it hard to sleep and DP and I have to sleep in different rooms. I cry most days - this has got worse recently. I've never had any problems bonding with DS though fortunately; I loved him to bits from the moment I saw him.
I've done the Edinburgh questionnaire and I seem to come out just above the limit, at 12-14ish. I never thought I had PND but the more I read about, now I'm not so sure.
