Carve out that mental wellness time for yourself!!!! Take a few minutes off duty and go enjoy your ice cream. Your family will benefit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I think a lot of us are wired to need peace and quiet and such right after a birth (or during pg). I hope you can find the space you need. I go so crazy when I need that space and can't get it.

If you give me directions to your closet I will bring more ice cream and some cookies too! I am feeling pretty much the same way!

A new dad and "everyone else" (except your kids) should be catering to the new mom, not the other way around.<br><br>
You are sooooooooooooo not whining.

That is how I felt after my 3rd (he's 6mths now). I didn't have such a hard time adjusting after the other two either.<br>
Take care mama, I hope the ones around you step up!

I have done this. Go ahead and hide for a bit it will make you feel better, chocolate mint ice cream is my recommendation.

I remember those days after my third was born. No one seems to give a darn how you are because "hey it's her third she can handle it". Everyone just expects you to carry on as if nothing has changed and you're super mom. The day I came home from the hospital I spent the afternoon cleaning the house and crying because my house was a mess and I had to clean it even though I had just given birth. No one cared about what I needed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Sigh!!<br><br>
Just wanted to let you know you're not alone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
