In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
This is a great list, thanks, L. I will be printing out and saving for February. I had a serious case of baby blues last time (I don’t THINK it was outright PPD, but maybe), and don’t want to repeat that to such an extent. I know it’s unavoidable, but hopefully these things will help.
Thanks for letting us know about this. the first step in combatting is education. Thanks for helping mothers like me.
I really liked the organization bit! I’m so trying to get more organized before baby #3 comes along. Get a cleaning routine… dinner routine… TIME FOR SELF routine… I wish my damn printer worked so I could plaster this list ALL over my house. Seems like your feeling much better this time around. I’m so glad. XOXO.
This is great! I just love the practical-ness of this. The fact that somehow I’ve managed to implement some of this stuff on my own, makes me realize that yeah, I was dealing with a little bit of PPD myself. Thank God I seem to be coming out of it too!
Thanks for sharing!
I completely agree with the organization thing. My son was 7 1/2 weeks premature and spent the first 15 days of his life in the NICU. I filled up my time (when I wasn’t at the hospital) with making lists of what I still needed to get, Doctor appointments that needed to be made, writing thank you notes. Basically anything to keep busy and keep my mind off being home without a baby. Oh, and lots of Target therapy. Baby shopping at Target makes everything so much better.
I am here!
I love that you are posting about PPD. I am a fighter of depression since 2000, and everything you talk about for PPD are things that I have learned to apply in my daily life.
Just knowing that you are not alone is so very very important.
I know I appreciate this list. I was a bit depressed with my first, but more so with my second child who is clingy and does NOT like to sleep in her crib. She prefers the couch. So yeah, just getting the—sleep—would make a huge difference in my attitude towards life.
Thank you for sharing Mrs.F. Still working on getting out of this but ever so often I see light at the end of the tunnel, and I know there is hope. Yes, Hope. Sweet Hope (here is to hoping she sleeps through the night tonight).
I am not an A type personality; but I really couldn’t agree with you more…when things are organized and run smoothly, that really helps. Guess what I just did the other day? I organized our laundry bins—one for each person in our house plus one for towels. It is making my life so much easier because I **HATE** Laundry. Now to do that for dishes…
Those are great tips, even if a person doesn’t have PPD! Thanks for sharing!
As mommy of baby #3, I am already crazy.There is no time, I am exhausted and need abreak, but what you said is sooooo true!
I found myself with PPD just last month when my 4th child was born Between a baby, full time business, no sleep, and general life, I was a bit stretched to the limit.
For about 3 weeks I was just out of it. So I can relate to PPD allot and the idea of talking about it is great!
