Hey Moms- Ok so i dont want to make this long, Long story short- after my daughter was born me and my husband have been really stressed always fighting, his drinking has been an issue but he seemed to have taken control of it(good). ok now me i cant let go of the past and im seeing a therapist to help me deal with him and how to deal with my daughter by myself (its like that). I still find myself going off the deep end if you get my drift at him for no reason. I have Mirena and its actually coming out because im bleeding way too much on it (every two weeks for two weeks). How do i take control of my mood swings, is it him? or me? has anyone had this issue before? should i look into taking something to help with them? I hope this isnt confusing. and a head of time thanks for the info

Have you had your hormone levels checked since your daughter was born? After my daughter was born my hormone levels have been all out of whack and my emotions have been all over the place as well. I am actually seeing a specialist tomorrow in regards to this. My OB/GYN has been keeping an eye on my hormone levels for the past 9mos and they are still off kilter so he referred me to an endocrinologist for further "investigation". My daughter is now just shy of 1 yr old and I also have a son that will be 3 in 2 months.
Just having a child though can be very stressful in a relationship, especially if it was a stressful relationship to start off with.

I know exactly what you are going through. My fiance had a really bad drinking problem he's been in and out of rehab 3x from the time I found out I was pregnant to the time our son was 2 mos old. It seemed like everytime I was mad at him a little arguement turned into a screaming match. I too was going to therapy weekly and still do occasionally. I realized even though he wasn't drinking anymore it didn't matter because I had so much build up anger for what happened in the past. I needed time to heal metally from before. In my experience I had trouble forgiving him even though He was showing changes so that was my fault. Yet I would tell him how I was feeling and he would say quit bringing up the past so it was his fault too. I find with these type of relationship issues you both have to work at it. And as far as being alone I was on my own for a couple months with my son and The thing that got me through was him I just completely focused on him and me and us being happy and if his dad didn't come around so what. You can get through my family and friends support got me through it and don't forget to give yourself a little me time even if its a hour it really helps! Sorry this is long but I hop it helps!
