@Haley I scrapbook a lot it just gets old bc I’m tired of physically being alone. I know I’ll be fine when Ian is born but it would just be nice to have company for a change.
@KC I am so sorry that must be so so hard! Do you like to read? That could help kill time and keep your mind busy!
@Haley No support just myself. Which really sucks. The hobbies I enjoy doing I’m not able to because of bedrest.
I’m feeling the same way. Do you have support? I personally talked to my supports and what I’m worried about and different family members are taking a week off in a rotation to help me. I’ve been reading and asking my doctors a lot about postpartum and it seems if you have prior history of depression it is unfortunately more likely to occur postpartum. I’ve found journaling to be helpful and art but I’m still struggling with self care. I started using a calendar and have symbols to celebrate my accomplishments and see how I’m doing with showering, brushing teeth, that sort of thing. It’s been motivating to have visuals personally. But I also know there are days where it’s just too hard so I cut myself slack and am just proud of myself for doing even the bare minimum. Grace with yourself is important
I think this support group might help. Do reach out for help. https://www.getsoulside.com/pregnancy-parenting
