The first week of having FJ actually at home was really tough.  Breast feeding causes your hormones to remain out of whack along with all the hormones of giving birth as well.  It's strange; I view myself as such a confident, collected, open-minded, and problem solving individual.  But when you factor in crazy hormones and no sleep you can become a monster!  I was getting all kinds of insecurities that I never thought I would have.  My husband and I have a very solid, strong relationship.  I had read that a baby could cause insecurities to arise such as would we agree on the same parenting tactics, would the baby replace our love for each other, would we have time to even have a relationship?.  I NEVER thought this would happen to us.  It may sound abnormal but my husband and I haven't had a lot of disagreements or explosive fights since college (factor in alcohol and immature jealousies).  I know relationships are not perfect but I would go as far as to say that we are extremely lucky and up until this new change we were pretty close.  Suddenly I was crying at the drop of a hat and I was more sensitive than ever before.  I also think my husband had a lot of the same symptoms from sleep.  As much as we were bickering at stupid little things I didn't want him to go back to work in a week.  I was terrified of being by myself with this new infant.  What if I broke him?  What if I could never leave the house again?  I didn't even know how to work the car seat, in fact I was terrified of it.  What if my husband stopped loving me because the stress of having a newborn was too great?.  I was having a lot of fears and being pretty hard on myself for feeling this way.  Slowly I'm realizing that this is a huge change and this means our relationship may be different but our love doesn't change.  I still have moments of these insecurities and I have a feeling until my hormones level out and sleep becomes more regular they will continue to pop up.
