{postpartum elation}

My cousin came up with a great term for me recently. She was describing me to a friend and told her that I suffer from Postpartum Elation. I am normally a pretty emotional person with very little energy. I have some health issues that cause me to have chronic pain and very irregular sleep. So I am often tired and I think it’s fair to say I can be pretty darn grouchy. My pregnancies are super tough but my early days with a newborn are a whole different thing. I become alive when I have a new baby. It’s been such a joy in my life that it’s hard for me to imagine not having another baby {Blake is only 3 months old and I feel like he is already so big}. But that’s another topic for another day.

I know this is a weird and strange phenomenon that very few people suffer from. It is rare that I hear someone say they enjoy the newborn stage {let alone LOVE IT. I cannot explain it. I guess it’s just how God made me!

And I’m loving every day with my sweet Blakey because of it!

You might suffer from Postpartum Elation if…

The best moments of your life have been in the hours and days after your baby was born.

You cannot stop smiling and saying how thankful you are for this baby in the hours and days after he/she is born.

You are actually more energized during the early days of having a baby than any other time in your life.

You don’t mind sleepless nights because it means you have a new baby.

You are happy during those emotional early days of a newborn {even during the baby-blues moments when you feel overwhelmed}.

You feel energized by the baby elation that tells you “this too shall pass” as you sort out each new baby stage & difficulty.

You are willing to “suffer” through tough pregnancies to have a newborn baby again.
