Nice job getting out walking! How are you guys doing?

We are doing ok. The baby is doing great. I am battling with postpartum depression which is very new to me. I haven't felt like myself and been really anxious and down. But I am taking some medication now and getting some therapy which I hope will help. How are you guys doing?! Second one a little easier than the first?

Oh man, that's rough. I'm sorry. Pregnancy hormones are crazy. I got really depressed during the first trimester, which was also new to me. It was terrible and scary.

I'm glad your baby is doing well. What's their name?

We doing ok too. Emmett had trouble breathing and had to get flown to the NICU so that was a whole lot of extra stress we weren't expecting. But he's doing fine now. In general, things seem easier mostly because I feel more confident although there's a lot less time available with a toddler in the mix.

I really hope you start feeling better soon!

I am sorry Emmett had to go to the NICU. Jack was also taken to the NICU (but in the same building) for breathing issues. Luckily he was quick to recover and only had to stay one day longer than me. We were glad to get home. I am glad you are all home and settled and that everyone is healthy. I wish you lots of long naps :)
