Hey this is Jamie. Its my first time here and I just wanted to introduce myself. I am 16 and my sons name is William and he is almost 4 months old now! I am taking the rest of my high school online and currently don't have a job. I am going crazy! I haven't been out basically since i was 4 months pregnant! All my friends have left me and I see sunlight maybe twice a week. Does anyone else have this too? I have had a chance to go out before and I didn't take it because I would feel so guilty and miss William so much! But at the same time I NEED to get out! But i know i wouldn't have a good time because I would miss William to much.

Hey Jamie. I was in the same situation. My daughters 5mo and through my whole pregnancy and the first 2mo. of her life, I sat inside not doing anything. It stunk. But, your son can handle a few hours away from you. Whether now or when ur in college or work, its gonna have to happen. You deserve some time to yourself or u might just go crazy lol Once a week u should try to get out. I now have planned a nite out with friends once every 2wks and I call every hour to check on my daughter nd it give me a lil assurance. But I do know how it is. I felt like a bat or something in the house 24/7 lol

Hello Jamie, welcome to the board. I'm krystal (20) mommy to 17 month Ian Lee.

I agree with the PP you def. need to get out and have some ME time. If not your gonna go nuts when William gets older and he's not used to being away from mommy. I've btdt. Ian will scream bloody murder anytime someone tries to come stay him while i go out with DF. So of course the wonderful mommy i am i just pay the babysitter and stay home. But now i'm tired of being at home all the time i just wanna go out. okay so i'm rambling on and on. Welcome to the board hope to hear from you some more.
