Is it baby blues?

All I do is cry! DH & I just fight anymore and I feel like our DDs (2 1/2 yr old & 5 day old) are the only reason I don't hurt myself. I thought baby blues made you distinces yourself away from your children so is this the baby blues or wat? What should I do???

  • It could be, but you need to call your Dr and discuss this ASAP. Don't let them pass you off. Tell them you desperately need some help. HUG

  • Baby blues are not just about kids. I went thru a very rough time after my last baby. I felt so alone, i was afraid of not being able to protect them, and I was beyond sad and couldn't shake it. Talk to your Dr!!!!!

  • if youre thinking of hurting yourself then you should talk to someone but with the fighting and the fact that your hormones prob just crashed from the baby then the crying is normal...i think i cried for two weeks straight and i dont have a SO...hormones are a helps to talk to someone even if its just your Mom or a friend...and take time for yourself!!!! put the bay somewhere safe, set up a movie for the toddler, and get in a hot bath for 20 min.....GL!! ((hugs))

  • Post natal depression could cause you to distance yourself from your baby. It also causes anxiety, hypochondriaIt sounds like you and DH are just having a hard time adjusting to the new addition/ lifestyle-while your hormones are still busy stabilising. EVERYTHING seems worse when you have the baby blues. It's perfectly normal to be emotional a few weeks after birth. Do you have a history of depression? If so, perhaps have it checked out. I did ( I was so hormonal, I left my DH. For a whole month. Lol) although I didn't have PND
