DD is 5 months, should I still be crying at the drop of a hat??

DD is 5 months now and I cry at anything! I don't seem to cry at nothing if you see what I mean, but for instance, when I put her to bed and she smiles I say to her that I love her and I nearly always have a little cry.

Even when I watch TV and something is remotely sad I cry. Thinking of anything even remotely emotional and i'm off. blush

I don't feel that i'm not coping or anything, I just seem to be very emotional. I don't think for one moment I have PND, I just wandered if others are the same and how long it might last for.

I'll let you into a secret...

Mine are no longer even babies and I am still like this blush

I'm a complete sap since becoming a parent, yes. smile

It does get a bit less raw as they grow, but it is like having a rather poorly-healed wound.

First year is a whole world of rawness - you'll feel less weepy soon. smile

And I get worse all the time. Gah school plays are terrible.

Thank you so much, it makes me feel much better if a little tearful grin

I was worried I was starting to go down the PND route and its such a relief to know its completely normal.

I am better now, three dc down the line, but when dd1 was a baby, had to stop watching any telly that even remotely alluded to death. So no csi, news, poorly baby programmer, wildlife! Couldn't drive fast on the motorway (no bad thing). Was nervous overprotective wreck. More or less normal, but cried buckets because had to give notice to childminder last week.
