Missing my pregnancy


I’m sure I’m not the only one...

Im currently 2.5 weeks postpartum and I truly miss being pregnant. I get emotional thinking about it sometimes... I was the happiest and most confident I ever felt while being pregnant. I felt so close to my baby with him inside me... and he was safe in there. It’s like a vacation that ended and I have to get back to real life. I feel some mama guilt over these feelings too because it’s not that I’m not completely in love with my new baby and happy that he’s here. It’s SO hard to explain but I figured some other postpartum moms would understand!

The hormone shift is so crazy... I’m feeling great most of the time, like I’m getting the hang of this motherhood thing, and then other times, after a particularly long day or night I do feel a little sad, nervous and like I have no clue what I’m doing.
