Today you may feel a bit emotional and weepy, otherwise known as the 'baby blues'. This is caused by hormonal changes and can be exacerbated by tiredness and a feeling of anticlimax after the build up to the birth. The baby blues usually last a few days. With rest and support you'll start to feel better. But if the feelings persist speak to your midwife to rule out postnatal depression.
NEW-MUM TIP: You may think it's the last thing you can deal with, but getting out of the house may be just what you need to help you feel better emotionally and physically. But don't overdo it - you still need to rest.
