I agree with both talking to your DH and talking to your doctor. I think with the baby blues or depression, it's important to talk about it and tell people how you feel. Just doing that can sometimes make a huge difference in how you feel. It never hurts to get your doctors opinion on how you're feeling or even to talk to a counselor about it. After having your first child, I think things can be very overwhelming, and that's normal. At the same time, it sounds like you are having a really hard time coping, which could be signs that what you're experiencing is a little more than the baby blues.
Here's a few links that talk about both the baby blues and depression that I think might help you:
