Hey Ladies,

Just wondering if anyone else has any previous experiences with PPD or depression?

I was diagnosed with severe PPD after Taeleigh was born after also suffering from prenatal depression (which started about 6-7 months along). I am still currently on anti depressants...they have just decreased my dose to a safer level...I obviously am at a very high risk of developing it again and judgling by a few things the last week or so, I pretty certain I will fall victim to the horrible disease again.
This time though things will be different IF it does happen again, at least I know what's happening...I have Doctor's watching me...DH and my family & friends are all aware of the situation...I will be back on my full dose of meds as soon as Bub is born.

Thank you Heather mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for the most gorgeous siggy!!

I'm sorry you've had to battle PPD. I know it can be very serious. Like you said though at least everyone knows now that it might happen again so they will be keeping an eye on it. I hope that things go better for you this time.

I'm so sorry you had to deal with PPD. I also dealt with it when I was pregnant with Xavier and for 2 years it went undiagnosed. It wasn't until dh was deployed a second time and our marriage almost failed - I'm talking I had the divorce papers ready for him to sign when he came home on 2 weeks leave - thaat I sought help and realized what was going on.

I am VERY worried about this pregnancy. Dh will be here for the pregnancy and more then likely the birth so pregnancy depression isn't so much the worry as to when he leaves. Luckily, our marriage foundation is MUCH stronger now then ever so I am really trying to think positive.

If you ever need someone to talk to please feel free to contact me. I can sympathize with what you are going through.

I had borderline ppd with dd. I think it was more situational depression though since we were stuck living in FIL's basement and Mattea was VERY colicky.

I think I had PPD with my daughter.. I'd never thought I would ever be depressed, but I was.. It only lasted a few weeks with me.. I think it was due to how my life changed and ranging hormones.. I had no more "me" time.. It was a rough adjustment..
