6 week postpartum checkup
Had my 6 week postpartum checkup today and I am only 10 pounds away from my prepregnancy weight so yay about that. (As I had lost like 25 pounds before getting pregnant) Still Fluffy(not fat) though. I am healed up fine. My Dr did however diagnose me with postpartum depression. No surprise there. And she diagnosed me Lexapro which is an antidepressant so we will see how that works. Hopefully it does work.

Huge hugs. I have taken lexapro and it works well.

I feel ya!! I had PPD with both my kids and am on zoloft right now for it. The 2nd time wasn't near as bad since I was pretty much expecting it. It was still horrible but I knew what was happening where with my 1st I didn't until I was really bad. As if we didn't have enough to deal with!!! Hang in there!

I'm glad you talked with your doc about it. I've heard good things about lexapro

Well on the plus side DH must feel bad and told me today that he would let me get a woven wrap as long as I get only DS's Legacy Wrap(this probably won't make sense to non baby wearers but this is a big deal!!)

I am glad you are on something and moving in the right direction. I just spoke with my husband about the very same thing this evening asking if he thought I might be depressed. I'm feeling blue most days.
