I loved being a Mum but it dawned on me that my whole life had changed, whilst everyone around me were doing exactly the same things they always had, my life was completely different. I had given up my full time job and everything that went with it that I had always known.
I actually missed everyone and everything in that old familiar environment, I realised I had become institutionalised.
I was actually quite scared because I didn't feel like me anymore, everything I had known had changed, life wasn't as fast paced, energetic or stressful,
I felt natural being a Mother and I literally threw myself into meeting new people and going along to Mother and Toddler groups, purely because I was a little bored and very lonely, I missed networking so badly.
Don't get me wrong, I was very lucky to be a stay at home Mum, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.. I simply missed adult conversation and the stresses of working in a busy office environment, I never ever thought I would say that.
How did you feel when you had your first born baby?
