Awesome thread and thanks for sharing, ladies. We’ll be TTC after the wedding and there’s a part of me (and him) that wonders….should we really be doing this right now!? The answer is yes, but the unknown is always scary. It’s good to hear the personal experiences.

@harmonyeee: I just wanted to say that this is really a normal thing. It is exactly what Darling Husband and I went through. It will get better though. Once you are getting more sleep and more in a routine things will get easier. I would get so angry with Darling Husband because I w felt like I was jggling everything while he was just taking care of himself and it turned out that Dh thought that I knew what I was doing so he thought he was just staying out of the way. (I had a child from a nother relationship)
Newborn stage, after the awe of birthing wore off, was really tough for us. Once we hit the more playful stage he was right there with me and we really connected more. We didn’t worry about leaving baby with grandparents so much. Things will get better for you , hang in there.

I absolutely love this thread.
I love how frank everyone is being especially those newly in motherhood to those a little further along encouraging us that it gets better.
I’m expecting it to be really tough in the beginning but hopefully as my husband and I get into the groove of things it will get better. I’m extremely thankful I will have my mom here to help us out! Hopefully it won’t make my husband feel on the oust!
Thank you everyone for sharing!

Thanks again to everyone for sharing and for your honesty. Its really interesting that most have mentioned someting about their husband’s reaction to them giving birth. Maybe its just my hormones but that totally gets me misty-eyed!

@penguinsaremyfriends: thanks so much! i know this phase is normal to some degree and everyone has a different experience, but it’s still nice to hear from time to time. we are both madly in love with our baby and are getting more and more comfortable with parenting, so it is getting funner every week.
sorry for threadjacking :p
