I just thought i'd send a message to reach out to other new mums out there for a bit of support. Hubby and I recently had our first baby conceived through Clomid. After a long and stressful infertility journey, we are so very grateful and couldn't be happier.
I had a difficult delivery with multiple complications and immediately after giving birth I had a postpartum haemorrhage; lost over a litre of blood which completely knocked me off my feet and it has taken me a while to feel a bit more 'normal' again. I'm still anaemic but feeling a little stronger and each day i'm making myself do more.
I feel I may have had a bad case of the 'baby blues' (been very emotional and bursting into tears at the drop of a hat). Not sure if this is a reaction to the birth which was quite traumatic, hormones or sleep deprivation (or a combination of all 3).
We are really struggling with sleep at the moment, waking very frequently. We're awake most of the night and having been recently unwell follwing the birth i'm absolutely exhausted. We have followed the advice of our midwife and health visitor as best as we can but i'm seriously thinking of seeing the GP. However, i'm not sure if realistically there is anything the GP can do to help?
If there is any advice that anyone could share or if there is anyone in a similar situation who would like to share their experience it would be lovely to chat things through.
Sending love and BIG hugs to all ❤ xxx
