I didn't get a chance to post earlier. Lil boy only takes one or two one hour naps a day. One is for me to eat and read posts and news. The other is to try and relax. I tried to nap, but I couldn't fall asleep. Last night was really bad. I got 3 hours of sleep. I went to the dr today for my 6 week postpartum checkup. Everything is good. I'm feeling much better, still not 100% healed, but she thinks in a couple more weeks I'll be better. I'm just so tired. When she asked if I'm getting any sleep I couldn't help but almost start crying and she could see it. She says I really need more sleep and that sleep deprivation is torture. I'm going to try to get Nathan to help me a little tonight. He always says he will, but in the middle of the night when I try to get him up, he won't... So we'll see. I did feel like a zombie most of the day today.


  1. Honey, you need to get some more sleep. Easier said than done, but I am sure your husband will understand if you wake him up to help.
    Is there anyone else you can call to help during the day? Even to just come over for a few hours so you can nap.
    Feel better!

  2. I got cut off from my previous post. I totally feel your pain on the sleep deprivation. I am soooo tired...and am having other issues on top of the lack of sleep. My husband doesn't really get it. His parents were raised with neanderthal beliefs so he pretty much feels like it's all part of motherhood and I'm supposed to accept taking care of him, baby, daughter and house while he works. Most of the time I'm ok with it since I opted to stay home but days like today when he's going out for the 4th time since baby was born, I'm not. Sorry for venting but wanted you to know that you're not alone.
