I couldnt tell you. usually its baby blues and then if its 6 weeks after it can usually be depression. I had bad depression till 6 months after birth.

friends who dont have children tend to do that unless they really love babies and stuff. they get this idea is their head that "oh well she'll be no fun anymore because now shes got a baby so whats the point of haning out with her" and usually thats when you realize who your real friends are. and looseing all your friends can cause a bit of depression. it did with me. to this day the only friends i have happen to be my older neighbors who have children, i find despite our age difference i have more in common with them than i do with my old friends, and they still like to go out and drink and have fun even though they have kids they just understand that theres a time and place for it. and soooooo much less drama and what i like to call 'Highschool BS" of whos dating who, who slept with who and all that crap.

I know how you feel. My friends either dont have kids or they do but they are older than my newborn and they are all busy. I spend most of my time alone at home or at work. I had some serious depression for 6 weeks after my baby was born. Starting to feel better these days but dont want to say Im over it yet and jinx myself!

The text that you're feeling lonely probably isn't helping, but its probably baby blues mostly. If you ever wanna chat feel free to hmu. :)
