I recently had a planned c session, this being September 12th of this year and now have a beautiful little girl. She is my spouse and I’s first child, and there is so much we have yet to learn and we adore her. She is a blessing.
Although...I have noticed since she has been born that my family, his family, and friends never ask how I am or how I am feeling or doing. They always ask about the baby, there is nothing wrong with asking about how she is doing. I just feel a little hurt and forgotten because no one ever asks how I am doing.
For example my mother doesn’t ask, she will visit with us or watch her for a short bit, but only will discuss my daughter. Never asks how I am doing. If I do try to bring it up, it’s as if I’m talking to my self.
I dont know if I am being selfish, and I am not one to want to be smothered by attention, I just feel sad because no ever asks how I am doing. Does that make me a bad person? Does this happen to a lot of new mothers?
