Baby Blues

No, this is not an uplifting post. I am suffering with some sadness today. I know it has to do with once again getting postpartum, but this postpartum I really have reason for. When I got really bad baby blues with Sydney, one of the things that helped was just holding her. I don't have that luxury this time. The day started off with our goldfish dying, which never helps anything... it is almost 1pm and I'm still in my p.j.s. Yuck - I know I said when I get like this I will call somebody, but I am just venting in general cyberspace - sorry. I recently read in a magazine somewhere that women diagnosed with gestational diabetes are the most likely to get postpartum. I guess that means us women who always have diabetes have no choice in the matter either. Not that anyone does - I am just rambling.

Sydney,

You don't even know me, but Eran was a great friend to us. We love you guys and you have been in our prayers. I have never experienced this so I can't say I know where you are coming from, but I can say that you are loved and although we never know why there is a comfort in knowing that Heavenly Father has a plan and that you will get that opportunity to hold that precious one again:) I wish I could give you a great big hug as I do know how the baby blues can take your day for a loop. Lots of love!!!

I wish I had comforting words, but I know nothing I say can really fill that hole for you. I am praying for you, and hoping you can have a better day tomorrow!

I'm sorry you're having a rough day. I've said an extra prayer for you. I wish I could make it all better.

I wish I could tell you I know how you feel, I wish I could reach out and hug you or take you out to eat or invite you over for a sad movie and we could cry together or something more than just tell you how I am praying for you and I hope that you will feel the comfort I'm trying to send your way.

I know it's easier to say "I'll call someone" on a good day and harder to actually call on a bad day, so I'm glad you're reaching out this way.

You don't have to post this-but I lost all my email addresses, so it's this or a facebook note.

Sorry you had a downer. We love you and pray for you every day. Just know that we care very much, and wish we could be with you to comfort you with whatever we can give.

I am glad my cousin married you! You are great! Thanks for sharing something personal, it helps the rest of us to share our feelings. I can't say I understand baby blues, but I can understand being in my p.j.'s all day! You have a right to be in p.j.'s all day! We love you!
