Just curious ladies. I have never had issues with depression, but wondering...

What does pp depression include? Just baby stuff? Or can weight issue/self esteem be an issue?

I don't know if I am battling it or not. I have had self esteem issues before I had kids. It stems back to when I was in my passed relationship, I was young and in a 12 year relationship with the wrong guy. One who told me I was ugly and fat all the time.

So I got out of that relationship and remarried/had 2 beautiful girls...and here I am.
6 weeks post partum and feeling pretty low about myself. I feel fat/ugly and unwanted. I know it's hard having 2 kids and having a love life with hubby. I am 140 lbs (12 lbs to lose before I will be back to my pre pregnancy weight) I go shopping and almost cry every time. I look gross. Everyone I seem to hang out with is tiny and perfect.

Sorry..... I know I "just had a baby" and such, and had my 2nd c section, but still.

I am going to try to start doing p90x monday.

Thank you Vicki.... for my beautiful siggie!!!
