Kind of......but it was exhausting. I couldn't WAIT for my daughter to walk, talk, laugh, play etc.....Crying and pooping weren't on the list lol.

Not really since it was just me with the baby. Hubby was in Iraq, from when our son was 4 days old to 6 months old. I was more lonely than bored, I cried alot

No not in the beginning and now that my son goes to school I am getting bored and depressed. I am joining the gym to take my mind out and I want to apply for school.

I wasn't bored, I was stressed out. My husband was laid off a month after our daughter was born. It wasn't like I could find work. Thankfully, he got a job a few weeks later. He lost 10 work hours and had a $3 cut in pay. Not fun.

I wasn't bored, but I do remember a manta in the beginning that I'd repeat to my self..."This is your job right now, this is your only job." I was so "out of it" from hormone crashes, lack of sleep, loss of memory, loss of date/time.
Repeating the mantra, would would relax me and give the present meaning. To be diligent, and do my job well.
Realizing once again, it was a BIG JOB, the biggest one I would ever do, so it became important again, and could not be boring!!
I also would hear and remember women saying," it will go by SO FAST enjoy every minute". Even though it felt like the LONGEST days of my life. Recalling there words would bringing me to the present, and yes now I can say "it FLEW by" as well.

I was bored after I had Mia, as I'd had some tearing and the repair work was botched. I couldn't walk too far and I couldn't sit for long, going out was a pain in the yoo-hoo - literally. I also didn't want people visiting as I was having a hard time with the pain and I also had PND, I just wanted everyone to leave me alone. She was 6 months old before I had surgery to put it right and that wasn't pleasant either. Mia was 2yrs old when Devon came along, so I was always busy. Although, playing with dolls or elefun for the millionth time can get pretty boring too sometimes. :)

Not at all. I absolutely loved being home with my little girl in those first few months. I loved the routine of having a little baby in the home and I loved dressing her up and taking her out shopping and visiting.
Now after my son was born........ I wasn't bored at all, but I had wondered what the hell I was thinking having another baby. It was HARD. I hated taking him anywhere, I hated anyone coming to visit and I hated that he upset the routine I had created before he was born.
They are not babies any more though, and I have come a long way since then in regards to regretting the second child. He is still hard work, but he is the most entertaining little dude I've met.
I do sometimes long for the early days though, when it was me and my baby girl living a pretty laid back kinda life.
