One Hundred Days of Darkness

imagesAre you struggling with the early days of being a parent – you aren’t alone! It is pretty widely acknowledged that the first 3 months or so with a new baby is seriously hard work – this article talks about the experience of surviving the first “100 dark days”. http://www.scarymommy.com/100-days-darkness-new-baby/?utm_medium=partner&utm_source=gottman

It’s perfect, because it covers it all:

– The terror of being responsible for keeping this little human alive.

– Being overrun by hormones gone wild and engulfed in all the feels: anxiety, guilt, sadness, joy, pride and rage—sometimes swapping one for another within seconds.

– The sleep deprivation that leaves you wondering how you ever could have complained about fatigue before.

– The seismic shift in your relationship.
