Post partum

I am sick :( No one tells you how you will feel after you have a baby. I would have thought the whole having of the baby would have been hardest, but honestly, the last week has killed me.

The baby is awesome, there's no doubt about that! Even with no sleep and constant cluster feeding, she's just been amazing. The problem is me :(

To give you an idea of what's going on, I've been so nauseous that I haven't been able to eat. I vomit quite a few times a day, and am now to the point where I'm throwing up blood. I've lost 30lbs in 4 days simply due to not being able to keep anything down, and on top of it all I'm breast feeding... So any form of nutrition I am getting is going to baby.

This is really tough. If it weren't for the illness, I know I'd be spending so much more quality time with my baby, but at this point, it's feed her and hand her to DH so I can either vomit or try to ward it off.

I'm so tired of feeling this way, I just want to be better. I know I'd be able to do this do much better if I could just feel right again. :(


  1. I am so sorry that you have been so sick since delivering. I hope that you get some relief soon - take care of yourself!!

  2. Do you have a bug or is it baby related? I know I have heard from some Bumpies that they have had loss of appetite and felt really sick after delivering but nothing that extreme :( I hope you feel better soon!

    1. I'm thinking it was pregnancy related. It has finally subsided and my appetite is coming back. :)
