Just wanted to say hello to all of you and let you know I am feeling much better

I had a rough road through this whole delivery with a trans verse c-section.  I was in the hospital for almost a week with extreme pain.  It's now 2 weeks that I gave birth to Christopher Zachariah and I am just now getting back into the swing of things.  I couldn't believe my first few days home were awful.  I dealt with some post partum depression and was very scared, so I went to my doctor and talk to him about it.  Turns out that I just needed the company of friends and additional help with the baby.  Since my baby was considered preemie I was trying to do everything myself and that lead to alot of crying.  I guess thats just the protective mama inside of me.  All is better now as long as I am keeping touch with friends and family.  I thank all of you for the wonderful advise that was given on here.  I have learned so much on here.  You are all truly the best women to chat with !!!!   I have posted some pics so go and check them out!

OMG, bless your heart!!  I've been wanting to read your post - I'm so sorry that you've had a hard time.  I'm glad things are looking up - it'll get better and better!  I agree w/Sheila - even though Noah's getting close to 4 months, I still deal some w/post-partum depression.  Big hugs, jen
