Butterfly3206, PPD is different for each of us because of the chemistry in our bodies. What works for one is distructive for another. One thing is for sure. You need to talk to your Dr. about it. You can tell him your fears and together come up what is best for the health of you and your baby. I know there are women who tuff it up, but the trick about chemicals in our body, if they're not working, we can do some things to ourselves, our child, or both. Because we're not working with all the resources needed for our mind & emotions. I don't know if your heard about the woman who had PPD. Her family knew she wasn't acting well after each childs birth. In fact, she took it harder each time. Long story short.. she drowned her 5 children. They found she had PPD and her chemical imbalance was off the charts. I'm not saying this to scare you. You need to know the possiblities. Plz see your Dr 4 the best choice.
