Usually I'm very happy- but sometimes I'm so bummed....
I really miss being pregnant- I know that's so weird- and I love my babe so much.
I just don't understand y I can just sit here and cry and feel so lonely? Especially when I have a beautiful baby? And I can't imagine having another baby? How in the world can u take care of a toddler and have a newborn?

PPD? Or just a little blue? But being pregnant is wonderful. I can see how you miss it. I do every time a friend gets prego. Hugs!

I had PPD.  It was terrible.  I felt like those people on those Nyquil commericals for about a month straight..lol  But it passes and things do get better with time and patience.

That is the most accurate description of PPD I have ever heard in my life.

I really wish I could be pregnant again and have a baby boy. I so wish I could keep my 1 year old little forever too!! Ohhh and make my 7 year old a baby again.

I go through that occasionally too, and then I think of all the fun stuff I can do with my toddler that I couldn't do if I had a baby... and then I don't want a baby anymore :)

I think it's easier to have kids a little further apart. I think that helped after dd was born because my Almost 4 yr old ds kept me busy in other ways. Plus he was/is helpful with his sister.

I had it for a couple weeks with my now 3 week old. I just got emotional for a couple hours per day. Cried over random things. But it came and went quickly.

Sounds like you got the blues. I had severe PPD. It was so bad that I don't remember much of my baby's first 3 months of life. I was so up and down, more down than anything. I remember lots of bad times. One time my SIL was holding my dd and I just started bawling because I was so happy she was finally born and with us. Not long after that, I was resentful that I had her and I didn't want to be a mom. UGH, it was awful! I think missing being pregnant is normal. I mean, it's a special time when it's only YOU and BABY only. It's a special connection between only you two, and that's the only time it will be only you two. I also remember when I thought "how in the world could I ever have another child and love him/her?" It just didn't make any kind of sense to me, lol. I talked with my doc and she was so understanding and supportive and got me started on medication. It helped tremendously. It took a while to be truly happy again, but it was such a relief just to be able to make it through the day without wanting to crawl in a deep dark hole by myself and not come out. It sounds like you are well aware of how you're feeling and that you still have positive thoughts that tomorrow is a new day. But, if you just don't fell right and want to feel better, reach out to your doc. There's nothing wrong with it. We as mamas need to stay happy and healthy for our babies. They can definitely pick up on our stresses and feelings.
