holy hormones

I seriously feel like the devils daughter...it started the day i came home from the hospitai l...we have a lab and i really wanted the first day home to go well with the dog... my inlaws kept calling asking when we were going to be home so she can bring dinner over we get home and there waiting in three driveway...so im like great they are other paranond i knew the encounter was not going to be what i wanted..they kept pushing away and yelling and it was just frustrating the dog and kept barking so now they lock him in the crate...uggh r u serious so they finally left and we try later on and it went well...everything dh is doing is pissing me off..he starts his 2 week
Vacation tomorrow so today she's been up all morning and i didn't get to eat breakfast and it's noontime what does he do call his mom to come by .. I'm like hello if she doesn't have boobs that produce milk she's pointless... she comes by to sit there. I get her to finally sleep so i said can u hold her while i shower what does she do she wakes her up instead and then says shes leaving..great thanks for the help...dh isnt being supportive and teling me im rude and he is trying to be patient ...so where is he now u ask..im the bedroom napping because he was the one that was up at night breast feeding her...and i dont have the right to be hormonal..

I feel for you. I've had people offer to help and when I say ok, what I need is ______, they actually say "that's not how I want to help." ??? Why offer? Grrrr!

I hope things get better and fast. It's no fun to feel low with a new baby. This is a great place to let out all your frustrations. Holding it in is the worst thing you can do.

Ugh, I typed a reply earlier on my tablet and then erased it accidentally. Sad

I'm so sorry you're having a hard time. I know what that's like. I've been cooped up in this house since M was born and my body isn't healing as fast as I wish it would. I've spent a lot of time angry and crying the last few days.

I would have been SO upset if I came home from the hospital and found my inlaws in my driveway. SO upset. Sounds like your husband needs to set boundaries with them. Sad

While I have issues with my MIL, at least she won't wake a sleeping baby. PHEW. She was here for hours the other day before M woke up...lol. At least DD got to play with her first.

If you feel like you need your alone time, go to bed. Don't feel like you need to put on a show for anyone. Also, tell hubby that your mood and over-all physical wellness is a minute to minute thing right now and he needs to check with you before inviting people over! There have been some days recently where I really didn't want visitors!

*hugs*

Totally understand. I've about had it with my DH lately. He cannot keep calm with DS1 and loses his temper over the stupidest stuff. Not to mention that man has had more naps than I have. I just keep telling myself the 1st wk is almost over. I just have to make it through the 2wnd week of him being home lol. I also try really hard to concentrate on anything sweet or out of the way that he does for me.

Yes, part of it is hormones, and part of it is that men are just clueless about these thing sometimes. Not a good combination. Honestly, I don't think those guys have any idea what actually happens when we give birth! My DH made an appointment to see the dentist (not a close one - an hour away in town) after Maddie was born. Of course I was 2 days pp, and that was the day I felt the worst. He was taking advantage of the fact that he was off work - yes, but wasn't the point to be home to help me?! It gets better - your hormones that is. Wink

Its been a better day today dh is home and he made me breakfast..his friends came by last night to see the baby and of course they didnt leave until 11..ds has been pretty fresh today but dh has alot ofparience with him...im trying to give ds the benefit of the doubt knowing he probably is acting out because of the baby but his attitude needs to end

Ya, my DD has been giving us the attitude too. 4 days with my mom didn't help. My mom doesn't enforce punishments. UGH!
