Baby Blues...

Gaby will be 4 weeks old this coming Thursday and I still feel sad from time to time...
The "baby blues" are certainly doing a number on me because I feel a constant sadness that I can't fight. At times I believe the sadness is due to being at home alone and inevitably getting bored. I know boredom sounds impossible when there's a newborn in the mix, but since I'm such an active person, being at home all day doesn't really cut it...
Other times, I think I get sad because I feel overwhelmed and just plain exhausted. Gaby is very demanding and the sleepless nights are not helping either.
Hopefully I'll start feeling happy again very soon as I continue to adjust to my new life. I'm supposed to be on maternity leave until early October, but I have decided that I will play it by ear and might go back to work a bit earlier....we'll see!
