My baby is more than 2 weeks old and everything I've found says that the "baby blues" should only last up to 2 weeks.
But I'm still having spells of feeling sad, extremely lonely, sometimes I don't want to get out of bed, I've been emotionally eating majorly...I don't know...I just feel blah.
The thing is that I feel this way most of the time but I have times where I feel ok. Like I still laugh if something funny happens so I don't know.
I'm not really sure how PPD works...I don't feel like hurting myself or my baby but I could easily curl up in a ball and cry for hours.
Do these things sound like PPD or is it normal to have these feelings after having a baby?
I'm just worried because in psycholoy last semester my teacher taught us that PPD doesn't go away on it's own and left untreated it can get worse but I don't have my book anymore so I can't look up the signs and a google search was not helpful.
