So, Emmett is 2w old as of tomorrow! He's fantastic, i am not lol. This was my 4th & worst c section. It was pretty painful in the OR, my bladder was badly fused to my uterus due to the other sections. But I felt pretty good pretty fast after his birth, I was home Friday am. By the weekend though I was having quite a lot of pain & couldnt pee without self catheterization. So tues am (1w post baby) i was diagnosed w/ a uti, started taking antibiotics & feeling better. The next day the tears set in. I thought it was cause my parents left that day & just hormones, & that id shaken it a few days later. Then on sat mt OH's 3 kids got dumped on us for 3 straight weeks, they were sposed to b mainly w/ mom till aug 7 so i could heal & get back on my feet, then here till school starts. I am not coping well. Theyre great kids, not their fault but its like triple the work & noise & time &.... I feel terrible cause everything is making me cry. im never like this. is this ppd? how long does it have to last to be that? Oh & im back having major pain (inside my belly near either end of the incision) which isnt helping either.

Th at sounds really horrible. I had bad anxiety after my last, i couldnt sleep. It took a month or so for it to subside, but you have a lot going on on top of that. I would let my doc know if i were you. I hate the idea of prescription meds but it seems it may be worth it in this case. So sorry

That is how my ppd came on with dd1. I cried 3-4 times a week - at the smallest thing. I wouldnt wait too long before you see a dr.

My c-section scar hurt on the edges of it too. Someone told me that is where he started or ended the stitches. It went away and didnt take too long!

Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
