    Smile I've had a baby boy!

    Hey everyone. Well I havn't been on in a while as I ended up in hospital with high BP at just over 37 weeks. I can tell you that my anxiety was thru the roof at this stage. They put me on a beta blocker and it didnt really settle so was induced at 38 and a half weeks so two weeks ago I gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy (despite all my anxiety). He is just so perfect I can't believe I did it.

    Now since then has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. My BP stayed high following birth so I wasnt feeling great. It has since gone too low and am now off the tabs but still worried that something could be wrong or could happen and I wont be able to look after him. I've been feeling light headed, nauseus and racing heart. I just hope these feelings will pass. My doctor has tried to reassure me that this is all normal as hormones adjust after pregnancy. I hope I can try relax as I feel like I'm going around in daze and just want to do right by my little boy. I feel like I'm letting him down and not being a good mother. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Hope everyone else is doing well xx

    Congratulations

    It's very normal for a new mum to be anxious...........I was twice!! Just enjoy him, love him, and give him lots of cuddles. Oh and when he sleeps get as must rest as you can. Being tired just makes things worse. Ignore the housework and concentrate on your beautiful baby and yourself.

    Congratulations

    It took me ages to feel right again after having my children, and like carol says when the baby sleeps you need to get some too.

    Well done xx

    CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your lovely son

    All new mums are anxious and may be for a while, but you'll soon settle down, so just try to relax as much as a new mum can and you will soon be feeling great.

    Congratulations! You've done it! It's such a story of hope and inspiration to those of us still struggling, and who chatted to you when you were pregnant. Yes, you are anxious, but you have just done the most amazing thing. You can do anything now, I'm sure of it. Give yourself time, but remember how brilliant you are, please. You are brave, and strong, and your baby is so lucky to have you - a mum who struggled so much to have him.
