  • From what you just explained does not sound like PPD. I had that. Any other things going on that you are not mentioning? What are all of your emotions? Have you googled it at all?

  • that def. does NOT (!!!) sound like PPD. thats more like being annoyed and a light baby blues.

    PPD is worse than that, believe me. been there, done that.

    there is so much signs that you will have when you suffer from PPD. please read it up on the internet. if you keep feeling like you do now, then talk to your family to help you out a little more.

    i wish you good luck

  • I have to agree, sounds like stress with baby blues but we aren't Dr's, I suggest calling your OB office and let them know what is going on. If you want to just vent send me a message.

  • I"m going through Post Partum.. you sound like you have a lot going on.. that leads to stress and depression, which paired together is a recipie for trouble. You should probably call your OB.. going for your 6 week appt soon?? Also look into community programs where you can drop your kids off or go places with them. Is there a bus near your house? I know your children are young, but if your really desperate then its an option!! I'll message you with some other tips :)

  • I don't know much about PPD, but good luck to you. It's sounds very overwhelming. I think you need to find some sort of support structure--a mom's group or something?
