Baby is only 1 week old and I'm feeling so low.
My baby girl was born a week ago yesterday. Me and my partner are over the moon but I have this constant feeling of missing my old life. Being able to do what I want, when I want.. I love her but I don't feel bonded and I'm trying so hard. It's hard to see my partner bonding so well and I feel so left behind. I am crying a lot, very emotional.
Will I ever feel okay again? I feel like I'm in a dark place, I feel suffocated.
I'm so grateful to have her here healthy and I feel so selfish for even writing this post but I'm lost. I'm dreading my partner going back to work next week, I'm so scared. Will this ever lift?
