Post Partum Depression

My baby boy is 16 weeks old and I just lack the motivation to do anything. I just can't make myself care. Like he starts to cry and I pick him up b/c I know I should. I'm always exhausted and I sleep alot during the day. I can only eat in very small portions b/c I'm just not hungry. I mean, I make myself eat enough to survive but It's not like I feel hungry. My room needs fresh paint but I just can't find the energy or a reason to go do it. It's not like I don't have the time, I just don't feel like doing anything at all. Is it possibly PPD? and if it is, who should I go to? My Primary Care or my OB?

  • Call your ob. You may need anti deppresnts and counsling. Feeling like you are is unhealthy for you both. I know how hard it is but you need to get help.
