Post-baby body confidence
My little boy is one month old and I'm really struggling with the way I look post-pregnancy. It is beginning to affect my relationship with his father more and more because I'm questioning everything to do with our relationship. Is this normal? Has anyone else suffered with similar feelings since giving birth?
I've always struggled with body confidence and felt unworthy, sometimes to the point where I feel so unworthy of being on this planet. My anxiety is getting unbearable and it's casing so much friction between me and my partner. I know he thinks I'm just being silly and that I have nothing to worry about but I can't help how I feel. I've always felt like I don't deserve my partner so to now have a body that is absolutely disgusting makes me feel like he's going to walk away from me. When I try to d things to make me feel better like buying new clothes or doing my hair and make up nicely, he doesn't even notice and that makes me feel like he's looking elsewhere.
Can anyone recommend anything I can do to try and make myself feel better and to stop taking things out on my partner?
I'm so tired of the arguing and I just want to feel better about myself.
Thank you in advance x
