What I Wish I Had Known #9

I wish I had known it was ok to cry, and that I would, (a lot) after having my baby. I don't mean immediately after. I mean for months after. I wish I had known that I'd be sitting there, with my baby, just the two of us, and the tears would start flowing for seemingly no good reason. I had one or two people mention to me that it was ok to cry after the baby was born, but I don't think I understood them, and didn't realize that it really was a widespread phenomena among mothers with newborns.

I was overwhelmingly happy, I cried. I was sleep deprived and overly tired, I cried. My baby was crying, I cried. I couldn't remember which side to nurse my baby on next, I cried. (Some people might be thinking PPD, and I assure you I went through that, but not until a few months later.)

Truly, crying in those first few months over little things is totally and completely normal, and I wish I had known that! So if you find yourself in the same situation, don't worry!! It's ok, it's normal, and it will get better...(eventually).
