With my first son I experienced the baby blues for a few days, felt really sad for no reason, then it went away and I was fine. I just had my second son a month ago, and last week I noticed that I've been feeling really anxious/stressed/high strung a lot for seemingly no reason. And it's been getting worse. Now I feel like crying all the time, I'm short tempered, still anxious, and it sucks! I want it to stop. Reminds me of when I was on Depo and my hormones went crazy. I wouldn't necessarily call it depression, but there are times when I feel just fine and dandy and then suddenly I'm crying over nothing or snapping at my husband.

Just wanted to know if this is PPD, if I should mention it to my OB next week, and what I can do about it. Thanks!

That is almost exactly how I feel. I told my OB I was perfectly normal and happy then the kids would say something or hubby would ask me something and I would snap. I will yell and get mad and then of course cry. I had no intentions or thoughts of hurting anyone or myself just these really bad mood swings. She said it was PPD. I am on Zoloft, only for a few days so we will see in a week or so if I feel better. I would def bring it up to your DR.

Sounds like how I felt except I waited to go in till I feel like that all the time. You really need to go in and talk to your dr. Hugs! I've just started my treatment 2 days ago. I'm on Zoloft and counseling.

that sounds like it may be PPD. I felt the same way, and still sometimes do.

Sounds like the beginning stages of ppd. I really urge you to talk to your doctor. There is help out there. I am currently on Lexapro and it is helping.
