I must admit. I never believed in postpartum depression... I always thought to myself “how can you possibly be depressed after having such a beautiful blessing in your arms?!” But I was so wrong and I understand now more than ever. Sometimes it tries to creep in and i have to sit and count my blessings and it goes away. Sometimes I don’t feel beautiful, I feel sad, overwhelmed, I’m not okay with my baby weight and I feel lonely ... sometimes these small things get to me and for the moment they feel so big! My family moved away a few months and it’s literally just me, hubby and baby in this big city. I’m grateful for them both and love them so much but sometimes I do feel the loneliness. When baby is asleep and hubby is at work I ponder on life and where I thought I’d be, where I am and where I could be. But I look at my son and I’m filled with so much love and gratefulness fills my heart. I am currently working on going back to school and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. (This is a picture of me the day after I found out I was pregnant, at the doc. Office confirming) ladies it gets hard but it’s all worth it in the end. All in all, I wouldn’t change my baby boy and new life for the world. We are women and we can literally do and get through anything together 🌸
