Help is this postpartum what i have?

Help is this postpartum what i have?
i had my little girl on july 30th c-section. and i have been feeling not myself lately. i do everything im suppose to as far as cleaning taking good care of my newborn and one year old and being a good wife. but i just don't feel myself at all. i feel disconnected with my self not focused not wanting to talk to anyone. Like yesterday we went to my husbands family house for dinner and i felt so not focused everything they were telling me was going in one ear and right out the other. I think they noticed but didn't say anything to me. I started to really start tripping so i went to my husbands cousins room with my kids and started to cry for like an hour in a half. is this postpartum or depression?
or can it just be im so overwhelmed with everything that i have been doing?
what can i do to fight it without taking any medication??
and how long dose postpartum last?

  • Your hormones are still out of whack. Just like they were when you were pregnant, the smallest things can make you cry. It's probably just a mixture of your hormones and you being overwhelmed. Doesn't really sound like post-partum depression to me (YET!) if it gets any worse i'd bring it up to your doctor but just from what you said sounds fairly normal.

  • If you really think it might be go see your doctor! Something as simple as bc can help balance out those hormones again. I just recently went through the same thing. Hang in there!
