We're hanging in there. Rachel is such a sweet, lovely baby and we're all totally in love. However, she' got her nights and days very mixed up, and nighttimes are getting to be very difficult for me. It takes upwards of an hour to get her asleep at night, and then she's awake again in 2 hours and we start all over again.
I'm feeling ok. DH has been very insistent about me taking time for myself, so I have had a couple little breaks that have been lifesaving ( going to Starbucks alone to sit and have a drink, one short shopping trip to Target for xmas gifts). Rachel seems to be reacting badly to something in my diet, so I am starting the anti-colic diet today and if that doesnt help her gas pains/ colic I will have to start eliminating my herbal supplements ( that the midwife recommended to keep away PPD). Im really hoping that the anti-colic diet works and the supplements work because I REALLY dont want to go back on antidepressants (been on them most of my life) because I dont want the baby to be drugged.
