When it was just the two of you life was so much more different, you could be intimate whenever you wanted you could do what ever you wanted, you only had the two of you to worry about. It was all about you! Things were less stressful and you slept as much as you pleased.
Now its all about baby. There is a lot of excitement about having a baby and bringing baby home and right now that's all that you can think of. When does baby need to eat, when did baby last pee/poo? Is this normal, is that normal? Your a little preoccupied with the new life that you just brought home with you. Sleep is almost non-existant.
But sometimes that excitement wears off fast. Once you bring baby home your on your own, no more nurses to help you out with any questions you may have. You can be overcome by stress pretty quickly. Once you become stressed your relationship can be compromised.
You feel like he/she doesn't understand what your going through, you just gave birth, you sore, exhausted and confused. If your getting help from your significant other things might not be so bad. But if your not getting the help you need, you may start thinking you are on your own in this and begin resenting your significant other.
Whatever you do, don't let baby bring a wedge between the two of you. You have a family now, if you loose eachother you may loose your relationship. Don't let yourself get so stress and your relationship so strained that your family gets torn apart.
Your love life doesn't have to end just because baby arrived always find time for eachother!
Have a Great Day!
