I'm 8 days pp, and at about 5 days pp, I noticed that I was feeling really irritable and wanting to blame DH for everything. I also noticed how moony I was getting about my baby. And I was asking myself how the same hormone cocktail could make me gush with love when I looked at my baby, but overflow with irritation when I looked at my husband. :) And now, at 8 days pp, it's full on weepiness.
When I began crying at breakfast this morning because I wasn't sure I liked my fried egg, DH went to the internet to remember the protocol for dealing with Baby Blues. He delivered to me 4ml of fermented fish oil (which I really should have been taking already), a box of kleenex, and a long hug complete with back stroking. I'm feeling better. But the idea of caring for all three boys alone come next Monday seems way less possible than it did even 6 hours after DS3 was born.
Add to this the fact that my mother is coming tomorrow-- oy vey. She's not the kind of mother one might want to have around whilst feeling weepy or otherwise incapable.
If anyone else is dealing with the cruel hand of hormones I've been dealt, share your coping tips! I'm going to need them come the arrival of a flight around 11:15 tomorrow morning...
