  • See your Dr and talk to him/her about how you are feeling. He/she will decide what is going on and what needs to be done. HUGS

  • Call your doctor explain what your feeling and they will be able to distinguish. Good luck! :0)

  • Baby blues usually go away within a week or two of birth. Post can stick around for a long time. Call your doctor and discuss, and in the meantime get outside and get some fresh air, that Vitamin D will help.

  • I agree with all the above, you really need to talk to your doc. Postpartum depression can get really bad, if that's what's going on, you need to catch it quick. No reason to be sad, you have the right to enjoy life.

  • I had PP after my 2nd was born and I will tell you this: I was so afraid to talk about it with anyone for fear my kids would be taken from me. Guess what? They weren't and after I got meds, (anti-depressant Zoloft) I felt much better and really wished I would have gotten help sooner because I "missed" so much time with her. Get help now, hun. There's nothing to be ashamed of about it. A lot of women have it. It's ok to talk about and get help. Do it today! You'll be nothing but glad you did! Big hugs momma! P.S. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem so you are ALREADY on your way! GL
