  • It will pass, no way to tell when though. You're experiencing post partem. Our hormones crash, and we have a lot of change-which good or bad is a lot of stress. Look into new mom groups in your area, often they have rotating topics and post partem is one of them, or there are groups specific to this. Hang in there, ask for help when you need it, and keep trying to remind yourself that you have a great life.

  • Talk to a doctor. PND is taken much more seriously now. YOur first two years for you and your baby must be as sound as possible. Hugs to you! x

  • talk to ur doctor. i went through that and mine lasted about 5 months after i had my son. my dr gave me some depression medicine and told me to start writing in a journal. something no one else will read, just u. that really helped me when i was goin through that. just dnt get discouraged and think somethings wrong with u...b.c nothing is. just about every new mom goes through it. i kno longer have to take the depression pills, and im thankful for all the help and support i got from both my dr and my family. good luck to u! i hope it passes soon

  • Whats weird is that sometimes the feelings last a few hours, sometimes just a bit... I feel fine now. And as far as my doctor, she's horrible, can't even remember my name after 9 months of appts and c-section, I don't think I can talk to her about ANYTHING...she's in and out of those exam rooms in under 5 minutes, no kidding !!!

  • Sounds like postpartum depression. First off get a new doctor! Then consult with that doctor! It happens to many women, It will pass though, but it's hard to say when, everyone is different. I had pretty bad PPD that lasted about 6 months. Good luck, and if u need to talk to someone, feel free to message me anytime! It helps Also to talk to peole about how u feel.

  • It's absoutely normal to feel that way. I went through a faze of that. It' good to speak to your doctor about that, and keep your spouse or special someone informed so they can help you as well
    Good luck honey, it's completly normal and you will get better.
