There are no women I hang out with anymore. Me and DH go out on dates and that is my best friend. He doesn't even really hang out with anyone. We have some couples we sometimes go to dinner with. We pretty much hang out with our kids and by ourselves. Sometimes friendships are too complicated. I find it easier not have to many, but I do wish I could find some mommies with kids the same age that is somewhat normal! lol
Oh right, I have mommy friends, but I don't see them often because of work. Next year when I'm off on maternity leave I'll see them more.
I scored 15 on the midwife's depression quiz. Apparently that means I could/should go to counseling and/or the doctor for depression meds. We're just going to watch it for now and see. I'm hoping the hormones ease up a bit soon. It just started last Saturday so maybe it will leave as quickly. We'll be on vacation in two weeks so I'm hoping that might help too. The midwife also suggested that DH help out more.
Oh ladies, I was there a few weeks ago and even got prescribed zoloft. I took it one night and had the scariest nightmares so I stopped taking it. My anxiety has decreased after it peaked at that point and I am feeling a bit more in control. I would suggest to ride it out for a few weeks and if it is still severe then go ahead and do the meds. The worst thing at this point that will happen is your baby will be a bit clingier or crankier for the first few weeks or so. (at least that is how my doctor explained it).
Hope you feel better soon!
I think that as it gets closer to delivery date, the more anxious I get. Like.. Can I really handle 3 kids??? It's overwhelming at moments!! We haven't really bought much for baby either, and I LOVE me done retail therapy!
I just feel guilty when I shop because I shouldn't. That said, we're saving for our trip and I have plans for some cross border baby purchases. I'm thinking of a Chicco Liteway stroller (DD can use on the trip) and one of those Rock n Play bed things. We don't have either of those in Canada.
