Hi girls, I just found this board and am so glad that I did. My name is Joey and I have a 21 month old son Brandon, and will be having a baby girl, Rylee, on Jan 29th. After I had my son, I had the baby blues, but I'm actually starting to wonder if it was more PPD then just blues. I went through a period of about 3-4 weeks after I had him, where I just cried all day long. I never felt like I would hurt him, but I did feel like I wasn't "worthy" enough to have him, and I half expected to lose him to SIDS or something. From there, it moved on to feeling like he would die in a car accident or something. I still to this day feel like I'm not lucky enough to have such a good family, which scares me because I couldn't even imagine the pain of losing my sweet little boy. I don't know if it's the pregnancy hormones that make me feel like this now, or if I'm still dealing with some depression. I'm so worried about how I will feel after I have this baby. My husband isn't the greatest support, because he thinks you should just be able to "deal" with it and move on. I've tried, but obviously that hasn't worked very well. Anyways, that's pretty much why I'm here, just looking for some support.

Hello and Welcome! I'm glad you found us. The more you know and the more you vent the better off you will be!

Congrats on the new coming little one. Even tho at times you may not feel that way. I would let your Dr know that you think you may have issues with PPD. That way you both can get a jump start on making sure you are taken care of shortly after the delivery if need be. So you will be able to bond so much better with your DD. I think some of your fears are normal tho. It is common to have a few weeks of the baby blues after a birth. but if it lasts longer then just a few weeks it becomes PPD. Was your fear of SIDS so bad that you found yourself not sleeping to keep an eye on DS? What about the fear of a Car accident does that keep you from putting him in a car? Those are some clear cut signs of something deeper then just baby blues.

Anyway Like I said bring it up to your Dr. and start planning for the help you will need.

Thanks girls! I think I will talk to my Dr. about it, just so that I can be prepared when this baby comes. I'm glad this board is here, it's nice to have people that understand.

I'm right there with you!! It's hard to talk to someone who just doesn't know what it feels like. that's part of the reason I wanted to be a co host on here. because that way I could have others to talk to that understood and So I can be there for them as well. It's really hard when people just don't understand!

So keep us updated
