So my little Evie is 4 weeks old today! :) I have been blessed with such an amazing daughter but this past week has been ridiculously hard...I guess all the lack of sleep is catching up to me and I'm still adjusting to being a new mommy. I have a bad case of cabin fever with a side of guilt for wanting to get out for a bit, or even to catch up on some sleep. And my mind is completely gone half of the time. I went to the gas station this morning without a bra and wearing two different shoes and didnt even realize it until I got home!!
I'm so tired and even when Evie is asleep its hard for me too. I wake up everytime she makes any kind of noise, I have to check and make sure she's still breathing every five minutes..Even when I do get sleep, I dont dream and it feels like as soon as I lay down I wake up two seconds later, even if it is a couple hour nap and I'm just as tired as before.
I only remember eating once in the past three days but I have no appetite and its so hard for me to stomach anything. Snuggling with my little stinker makes it all worth it but I still feel like poo.
I dont even recognize myself..my hair has more friz and tangles now then ever, i have huge bags under my eyes, my face is breaking out and I dont even care like I normally would.
Should I check myself into an asylum or is this the norm for single/new mothers?
