Postpartum Update

I went to see a psychiatrist yesterday to discuss my postpartum issues. I had a good visit (I cried most of the appointment, of course)... this doctor is awesome. Everything he said was exactly how I've been feeling. Turns out I have postpartum anxiety and not depression and have irrationally latched onto Trent's safety as my 'trigger'. So he gave me some things to do to help me process my anxiety, and I'm feeling optimistic. I've been doing a lot better the last 2 weeks (and I owe a lot of that to my mother-in-law who took off a lot of time from work to help me) and am maybe seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I really appreciate everyone's prayers and support, you have no idea how much it has meant to me!

Glad to hear you are doing better. I need to email you and get the scoop on all of this. You and I are so similar in our type-A personalities and I want to make sure I know what to expect and do after we have our little boy. Trent is gorgeous! I love looking at all his pics! Hugs to you!

You sound like you're doing an amazing job. Trent is lucky to have you as his mommy! Can't wait to meet the little guy.
