OK, so what’s wrong with me? I can’t believe how much energy I have. I’m sleeping in two hour stints, with an hour between for feeding NewGirl and getting her back to sleep. I’ve found it impossible to take the advice to “sleep when the baby sleeps” during the day. And yet, when people ask how exhausted I must be as a new parent, I must admit, I’m not. I’m sure it’s a combination of a very easy recovery from labor and delivery together with pure adrenaline. But I’m happy to be on the phone with family, friends, and even colleagues. I’m walking up a storm around town, and I’m feeling great.
I’m sure it’s just “new baby high,” and I’m bound to come crashing down sometime, but for now I feel like the energizer bunny. Did anyone else experience this same adrenaline rush? If so, when did it all change?
