So I know we check on you ladies but how is DH/SO doing with your PPD? Are they adjusting? If this is your first baby do you think they are having a hard time adjusting to life with the baby? Alot of times we forget about them so I just think we should check in with them .

Honestly, I'm not sure if he ever really understood it all. He has been very supportive though and I have to give him credit for putting up with me through all of this. Our youngest is 13 months now, so we have pretty well adjusted to life with our kids, however DH seems to still get overwhelmed trying to balance both of them still. I think it's hard for him because he was gone until our first daughter was 16 months, so this is all new to him.

Well and to be honest men don't have the natural instincts that moms do when it comes to kids. My DH is wonderful and does a good job but its just different. I am glad you guys are doing so good and adjusting.

I was in denial that I had PPD and finally after DH had been deployed a few months I couldn't take it anymore and I called my ob gyns office and they put me on Lexapro.

I haven't told DH that I am on it.He has enough to worry about while he's deployed.....

He's fine, he's always been fine I reckon. He wasn't much help at all when I was going through everything.
Lynda will be 15 months soon I'm having a hard time adjusting to her growing up so fast and its only been a short time lol

Kim I can understand why you don't tell him. I hope you have others to talk to.

Nicole they do grow fast. Its why I love pictures because I love to go back and look. I love your Daughters name by the way. My daughter is Linda . Not that common here in either spelling. Men sometimes aren't helpful, they don't know how to "fix" us.
