scared?
 
Does having PPD make you scared to have another baby?
For those that had it with their first did you have it with your second, or third?
Was it worse?

I had it with my first, and I have it now as well. Its not as bad as it was with my first DS. I will still be having one more child. I know that its managable with help from the OB. I am actually starting to feel better now and Gabriel is 6 weeks old. So I am hoping its all down hill from here!

I had a little with #1 and REALLY bad with #2 i was so worried about #3 but its been ok. It started to get bad but i realized for me staying busy is key. Its when I'm alone with my thoughts that I get down and anxious. So I focus on school, working, managing my home and family and I feel good. I still have bad days, but its not so bad.

Thanks for sharing ladies.

I know it was bad with my first but with my second I took preemptive steps to keep it down. I was always curious to know if others got it more or less with subsequent pregnancies.

I had PPD with my first (and only) child. I am definitely scared to have another one. Especially since I find it VERY VERY stressful raising a child (who is now almost 3). i do not think I could go through it again.....
