I'm going to talk to my Ob about this tomorrow. But I don't know if PPD is what I'm experiencing or if it's something else. Just feel really off since I had DD 2 weeks ago. I get angry so easily at my DS who's 2. Little things just annoy me. I feel completely overwhelmed and like I'm sucking as a mom this time around. And i cry a lot. I also feel like I'm pushing people away but I don't know what else to do. I don't feel like I really have anyone I can talk to.

This is how I felt right after Megan was born. I know sometimes it can just be "baby blues" which is a mild form of PPD mine never went away though. My doc said it usually goes away about 3-4wks after? Personally I would definitely mention it to your doc because if it is PPD you don't want it to get out of hand. Even though I didn't recognize the signs at first I wish I would have because I dealt with some really dark stuff until I got help. ~hugs~

Caylynne and I had a lot of the same feelings at the start. I felt like I was crappy because my son hadnt adjusted yet and I didnt feel that the baby was safe with him for about a month. I yelled a lot and was frustrated. The intrusive thoughts, like questioning if I loved her started later on.

I got treatment at 4m PP but I hit bottom before then. I agree make your doc aware now. It might go away or you might need some help for a while.

Well I talked to both my family doc and my ob. My family doc gave me a script for Zoloft and is following up with me on it. I had started crying more because of feeling like a complete failure since my DD was diagnosed as failure to thrive when she was BF exclusively and I am now having to supplement. My OB thinks it's just stress from introducing a new baby into the mix and is following up with me in 2 weeks to see if it's any better. My mom says she doesn't see a change in my behavior off the meds vs on them except I'm not crying anymore. I personally don't feel any different, but do you ever notice if you feel different?

Thank you ladies for your support!
