This is third DD I used to b really confident sticking up for myself talking to everyone etc. my baby is 8 weeks we just moved and I hate it. sad I'm scared here I keep my blinds shut I don't want to be seen walking to the at etc as I think the neighbours will judge me (I'm a bit fat )?a neighbour knocked moaning where I had parked even tho we can park where we bloody like! But I'm sat here all lonely and really don't want to be here wish we hasn't move now sad worries about this new bedroom tax thing as we have one extra room over sad feeling really unwelcome and vulnerable

A little yes. I think partly because while I was pregnant had PSD so very immobile and felt vulnerable cos I couldnt run away if felt threatened. Then after you feel vulnerable cos DC is so precious and you feel you have to protect them. I think it must be normal...

Also dont underestimate the hormones sloshing around even though you've had them before. Cant believe how they've changed me!!
