PostSubject: Is life ever going to be the same again?   Tue Oct 20, 2009 7:20 pm

My baby is allmost 14 months old, still not sleeping, 20 minutes at most during the day,and wakes up 3 to 4 times at night. I have to get up 5 times a week and my husband twice a week. I love my baby but I think depression is sinking in. I have lost 12kg and a lot of inches, my husband does not seem to appreciate my thinner body and the hard work that went into it.

He showed a video of me and the baby at the beach on our recent holiday with my bikini on to a male colleague who said to my husband that he was not looking at the baby but at me, he thinks I look very good after the baby, he said he thinks I am beautiful and that my husband should look after me.

I loved the compliments (which I never receive from my husband) and suddenly find myself thinking of being with another man. I do not know if I want to be married anymore and I find myself wondering if it was a good idea having the baby? I love my son but life is now so difficult, not being able to do things without having to ask someone to look after the baby.

I feel lost

Hi there Michelle

Your life will never be the same again because you now have a beautiful baby boy in your life. It does seem at these very early stages of childrens' lives that things will never be normal again because it's such a demanding and draining time, but it DOES get better.

I would, however, suggest that you investigate the possibility that you might be suffering from PND. We have a checklist on our website, which you can do to see if you are showing signs of PND. Please contact us on our helpline number and someone will refer you to a health care professional closest to you.

I also feel that it's of paramount importance that you and your husband start talking very seriously about your relationship. If you feel that you need some extra help, a marriage councellor might be just what you need to get the process started.

Please contact us if you need any further information.

Kind regards
Alnere
