In the weeks after Baby W was born, I have to admit to having the baby blues. I did not have the kind of blues where I didn't want to be around the baby, but I had the exact opposite blues! I cried at every little thing that seemed to be wrong. He had to have several doctor's appointments a week for minor issues. I cried at every appointment! A few days after birth we noticed a large bruise behind his ear and had to take him for x-rays! I was a wreck! (There was nothing wrong. He just has a big head and the bruise was from the birth.) The x-ray tech asked me if I had done something to my baby or if it was from birth...I cried and cried! I would sit in front of the television and if something sad happened...more tears from me! When my in-laws were staying with us, my father-in-law thought there was something seriously wrong with me!
P.S. The baby blues only lasted a few weeks. When we found out that Baby W had a partial biotin deficiency (very rare), I was able to handle that without too many tears, and I didn't cry at the geneticist's office. I'm glad they didn't last forever!
