I pushed him away and had no idea!

I just had my baby in March and never thought I would go through depression! I thought it would all pass as she got older and things got easier. I was nagging and yelling more then I usually ever did. I changed and didn't know it. I'm pushing him away...
My husband is a quiet person who waited for it all to blow over. He started to resent me but never said anything till he had it.
Now we are apart to figure things out and I finally realize how I have been. A lot of it is my fault and I want to change.
Is it over?

I went through this with my first baby. SOO we decided that we would take more time for ourselves to get back to being a couple with a new baby that was still nursing this meant putting him to sleep and sitting up and playing a card game, laughing, joking only saying positive things to one another each night we say three things to each other about why we are greatful for them, such as I appreciate that you did that dishes or whatever it was he did that I noticed and thought was sweet. It really really helped both of us to realize that all the other stuff of what we don't do doesn't matter because we both have each others back and we both know how much we mean to each other and see each other only in a postive light.

That's what we're going through now! All I get from him is "I don't know"

I'm giving him space...
