Hi Moms. I need advice, inspiration, and uplifting.
I'm about 13 weeks pregnant with my second baby and I have a little girl that's turning 2 next month. I'm a stay at home mom and am bored out of my mind. I catch myself feeling depressed, alone, bored and unmotivated. My husband works from 7 in the morning and comes home 9 or 10 at night. I only see him in the mornings and on weekends. I have no adult interaction. How do I get myself out of this rut. I also don't want to get post part like I did with my daughter after I give birth.
Is there a moms group or a play group nearby? Maybe an older lady (grandma/mom type) who wouldn't mind meeting you somewhere for you to visit and for your daughter to get out of the house.
For me, if I get out of the house, I'm good. I know it's different for everybody but hopefully something helps. I also take magnesium to help keep my mood up. It seems to stave of depression. Exercise helps. For the post partum, I've heard awesome things about placental encapsulation helping stave that off.
Hugs! you are not alone. :)
You can do it at home if you want.. I know I found instructions at one point... But if I were to do it, I'd pay somebody. Ashwaganha also helps with those hormones and is safe while breastfeeding, but I don't know if it's safe while pregnant.
