    Hi,

    just a quick question. It's 11 days since I had Elliott and I've just managed to start catching up with some sleep but I've noticed the last few days that come about 6 o clock in the evening I get all tearful for no reason. Kind of like I want my Mum if you know what I mean? I just get a bit overpowered by it all, but nothing in particular triggers it. Since I'm sleeping from 7-11.30 and then taking the night shift in the spare room with him as my DH is having to work still being a freelancer (managed to get another 5 hours after midnight last night- woo hoo- 9 1/2 in 24!) it might just be extreme tiredness before my bedtime but I wondered if it was all these stray hormones leaving my system?

    Anyone else? If so how long did it last? Or do I just want my Mum to come back! (Answer:yes!! She left Sunday- she was so calm about baby stuff she was fabulous!)

    I heard at parentcraft it is normal to feel like this a few days after giving birth and it should pass but if it doesn't or gets worse speak to your health visitor. Although if you're anything like me it will be a case of 'I want my mum!!' lol

    I've heard that that's part of why women get a bit weepy after the birth is that you've been 'high' on pregnancy hormones for months and now they're slipping away. And having a baby is a pretty overpowering experience! And you probably do want your mum!!

    As Kim says, if it doesn't pass, talk to someone about it.
