After giving birth to your child, you may start to feel different. After a full day of labor and listening to that crying child, you’re probably thinking, “What the heck have I done?” Since this is the case with most mothers, this is known as the “baby blues.” The baby blues is essentially a part of your healing process, where your body chemistry and emotions just get the best of you. You’ll start to think differently and sometimes even regret having the child. While this is extremely normal, keep in mind that this is going to go away over time.
How Do I Know If I Have It?
- You’re going to feel anxious all the time as well as feel nervous
- You’ll feel sad and almost feel as if you’ve lost something.
- You’ll feel stressed out and even have a short temper with those around you.
- You’re going to feel impatience.
- You’re going to have massive mood swings that you have never had before.
- You’re going to have a hard time concentrating on things such as books, TV.
- You’re going to have a hard time sleeping at night.
If you’re thinking that you have this problem right now, here are some tips that most experts are going to recommend that you consider doing:
Give It Time: It’s going to take time to get rid of the baby blues. On average, it’s going to take upwards of a few weeks to get rid of it for good. What you’re going to find is that while some people can get rid of it in a few days, others may take upwards of a few months.
Talk: Find someone that has been pregnant in the past. What you’re going to want to do is talk to them and see what they say about the situation. This is a great way to not only cope, but get ideas on what they had done to pass the time.
Reach out: The Internet is a great place to reach out to if you doesn’t have that moral support. There are various message boards and chat rooms that are designed for moms that have been through the baby blues. People love talking and helping each other, so this can be a place to try as well.
As mentioned, give it time as there is no known cure to just get rid of the baby blues. Instead, what you’re going to want to do is keep your mind occupied and enjoy your baby.
