  • It sounds like you are dealing with post partum depression. Talk to your doctor about what you can do to ease your symptoms and be happy again.

  • You may have a slight PPD (postpartum depression) problem. Of course, it's also been less than a month, so chances are, your hormones are probably still out of whack!

  • Could be PPD or lack of sleep or stress over the new dynamic and caring for everyone. It's okay. I'd talk to the doctor and keep an eye on yourself. Make sure you're getting sleep.

  • I had PPD, I would def get something from our Doc. I cried every night for 2 months after my Daughter was born with all the stress I had on me. I had no family, my Husband worked 4pm-1am and it made things really hard. Mine finally passed after 2 months, I had no health insurance, so I couldn't go to a Doc. If I ever have a 2nd Baby, I will have good health insurance and I will go to the Doc If I feel that way.....
