Is it possible to show signs of PPD even as late as your child being a year old?

Yes, I think PPD can go unnoticed for a while in some women. My DD was well over a year old when I started to notice mine and it wasn't until after my 2nd DD was born that I got to the point that I was ready to ask for help.

yes I believe it can too.
I think I had it right after my son was born but I suffered in silence and I thought it would go away and it did get somewhat better.But then my husband deployed to Iraq last year and it came back.Or maybe it was never gone.I finally called my obgyn's office and am taking Lexapro.
Not many people know I am teaking anything.Especially not DH or his family.
Only my mom knows and a couple of close friends.

I didn't admit to my PPD for a long time and it got worse as the months passed. I started taking anti depressants a year after my DS#2 was born and started seeing a physciatrist around then too. It definately is something that doesn't have a time limit. If you are feeling like you might have PPD call your doctor and let them know. The sooner you get help the sooner you can start to heal!
