One Month & an Update on Life

Wow it seems like it has been forever since I have actually gotten to sit down and play on my computer. I am so happy life is finally starting to get into a routine now.

Before I get into the update to much I wanted to say my little chunkamonk is now a month old! where has the time gone!

Kaileb had his 3 week check up on the 16th of this month. My little chunkamonk now weighs 9lbs 10 1/2oz and is 22 inches long! he is also staying awake for longer periods during the day. He continues to amaze me. I can not believe that something so precious came out of me.

I on the other hand have been trying to deal with a lot. A good friend of mine lost her baby at 26 weeks gestation. Since finding out I have been trying to be there for her as much as possible. I will admit it has been hard. Especially since I myself have been trying to deal with what I think is postpartum.

Since Matt has returned to work, I have spent a lot of time alone. Just me and Kaileb. I even spent the majority of my first Mother's Day by myself. Until Charm (my next door neighbor) asked me to come over and celebrate with them by having dinner. It was just what I needed that day too. Up until then all I felt like doing was crying.

I have also had a few friends who do not seem to get that my emotions are all over the place right now and have only made me feel worse. I am seriously contemplating a trip down to my Dad's to see if a change of scenery will help get me out of this funk.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with postpartum? I really do not want to end up going to my doctor just yet. I have dealt with depression before and can usually snap out of it. I want to give it a good try before having to use a pill to get my emotions under control. 

That's all for now. I will be trying to get this blog back up and running like it was before my little turtle man came and took up all my time (not that I mind at all, and I am sure you all understand).

It would totally rock my world if you gave this a click!
