Isolation can put you into a rut pretty quickly. Its essential for your happiness and mental health to try to get out and meet some other moms. Check for local baby groups, or post on kijiji and start your own. Instead of watching TV when you are stuck inside a lot, try getting back to a hobby you may have had. Art, music, photography, cooking, crafting...you name it. Or maybe you now have some time to try something new or do some learning...U-demy courses are great and they don't cost much. Stay at home moms have to re-define themselves every now and again. Reach out to people, I guarantee there are other moms in your neighborhood who feel the same. Also consider discussing some compromise with your boyfriend...He needs his down time, and you need to get our more. perhaps you guys can plan some simple family outing on his day off. This can be anything from shopping, going to the park, getting out in nature, or simply walking downtown somewhere with a coffee. You'll feel great having gotten out, and your baby will benefit from being out and having some family time. The you guys can come home and have relaxing down time. Stay inspired and call family and friends when you need to talk. Wish you the best of luck :)

Where do you live? I live in Maricopa and I'm in the same boat as you. I have 7 week old and been at home since we came home from hospital:-/
