Postpartum Depression

Question: If I am already experiencing symptoms before my 6 week post partum visit should I let my OB/GYN know as soon as I suspect PPD or should I wait? What would you do or have you done?

I have heard a lot about PPD. I think I would let him or her know now. I have heard of women hurting their babies or themselves I don't think I would ignore that.

I'm sorry you are feeling like you may have PPD. I was recently diagnosed for the second time. (had with my DS) and my DD is 8 mo.

Yeah, that is what I thought I should do. I know it seemed like a dumb question - I only asked since it's 10 days now until my PP checkup - I'm guessing it is urgent enough to come in before then.

Ask now. The sooner, the better! I had some after I had my daughter I had so much stress because she came early and my house wasn't done being built so we all crammed in one little room at my mother in laws and she was a sick baby and cried non stop. It's very hard in the beginning. Also I just found out that my thyroid was going crazy so that made it way worse. Sometimes they will check your thyroid to see if that it functioning properly. Ask now before you get so miserable and hateful like I did. I never dreamed of hurting my baby but I would get so mad at everyone around me and so depressed about everything. Now she is 6 months old and I am doing much better and they are watching my thyroid.
