  • I was super emotional after Jack was born and with my history of depression my OB put me on anti-depressants at my first postpartum appt (at 5 days). They seemed to help. I kept getting all upset because I got my tubes tied and I knew Jack was our last. Even though I also knew it was the best decision since he was my 6th pregnancy, 5th child (had 1 miscarriage right before him) and all were c-sections. It was still hard to come to terms with the fact that Jack will be my last baby.

  • yes i was extremely emotional afterwards. i could cry at the drop of a hat for no reason and it was almost immediately after i had my girls. and it lasted for a while id say 2 or 3 months then things got better. but even now i still have the urge to cry for no reason and my husband just thinks im wierd. lol im done having kids too and just the thought of that makes me a bit sad but both me and my dh agree that we are done. it will get better. once the hormones settle down and your body gets back to normal you wont feel so emotional.

  • I was exactly that way too. I think it has something to do with the last one being the last one and that phase of your life being over. It goes away though and you move on and look forward to grandchildren.

  • I had my tubes tied after Brandon #7 and I still miss being pregnant, he's 4yrs old. Sometimes I miss it, knowing he's the last of the mohicans. But it gets better.
