Signs of Postpartum Depression
When you dreamed of the birth of your little one you likely imagined nestling up to your sweet bundle of joy and savoring every tender moment. Instead you may find yourself feeling overwhelming sadness and feeling down or blue most of the time. Along with feelings of sadness, crying and tearfulness is another symptom of PPD. You may find that you don't actually cry, but instead feel an increased sense of unhappiness most of the time. Or you may find yourself having emotional outbursts over little things in your day. If this sense of sadness is prolonged and does not go away after a week or two like the baby blues, it could be PPD.
