How do you all deal with being home all day when baby is first born?

I just had my baby the 18th and I got discharged from the hospital the 20th and I'm home and its killing me!!! I hate sitting home all day by myself with just the baby I love her so much and love spending so much time with her but sitting here drives me nuts lol my bf works late and when he is off or home he stays at the garage working in his motorcycle. I love the weekends because my son is here with me but with me having a Csection I can't really play or move to play with him :/ I can't wait to heal so I can leave the house and have play dates with my l
kiddos (:

Mine was born on the 5th and the only thing keeping me sane is that my hubby doesn't work in the winter. If I'm alone too much in a day I usually end up crying. Just need to get over this hump!

Ive been a stay at home mom since my 2nd was born.  I enjoy simple things like playing board games or cards with friends n family,  find simple household projects that need doing,  pick up a hobby like scrap booking. Just something to pass time

@kori yeah i tend to cry when I'm alone to lol I have no reason for it except that I hate being alone.. I love weekends though so my son can at least keep me company (:
