Well, since everyone else has been so positive, I'll feel free to be totally honest with you.
I felt totally unable to get anything done for 6 mos after dd was born. It was a cesarian birth and I had lingering pain the whole time. Sure, dd slept a lot, but only if she was in my arms. I didn't have a sling, and the carrier I had became painful after 30 mins max. To bathe, I would put her in a rocking chair in front of the shower, and I'd have to let her cry the whole time. I showered about every 2-3 days. We also had a swing, which would keep her quiet for about half an hour. That's how I got work done in the kitchen. She wasn't great at nursing at first, so she would most often nurse for 45 mins or so, starting every 2 hours or sooner, so in between sessions there just wasn't much time. I was exhausted all the time, it was painful to move, walk, stand, or sit. I set a daily goal of washing a load of laundry and getting a load of dishes into the dishwasher, and I made it maybe 75% of the time.
At the same time I had a huge surge of creative energy, like never before, but I felt completely unable to channel it into anything significant at all. Couldn't play music, it would wake the baby. Some crafts, like painting or decoupage, by the time I got the materials together and some space cleared she would wake up hungry. I started gathering up hedge trimmings and weaving them in the yard, while dd slept on the boppy just inside the patio doors. I could get maybe half an hour to work. I hung my creations around the yard. I'm sure dh thought I was crazy. Looking back, I was, I had ppd, but when I asked myself if I needed help, I thought, it would be abnormal NOT to be depressed right now.
So, personally, I wouldn't think of having another baby if there were ANYTHING else I needed to do in the next six months.
