Is it possible for postpartum depression to happen nearly 3 months after giving birth? I was perfectly fine other then constantly feeling anxious when I am not at home with him. until a week ago when I started to feel like crying over nothing. Tonight I was lying in bed with my son talking to him and getting ready to read him his story when I just busted out crying hard for nothing. We were having fun and he was smiling and trying to laugh and I just started to think how much I love him and bam it hit me out of no where. I have found myself getting a little lax in his care. Nothing major just not doing his laundry as often as I had. Just little things. I love my son and have no bad feelings towards him. Maybe its just that I have not felt this immense amount of love in such a long time. I would appreciate any input or advise. I also will be calling my doctor in the morning and asking him about this. I just want to hear from other mothers because frankly not all doctors really get what a person is feeling emotionally. Thanks for reading all this.
