Is there a time period after the birth when you are "safe" from PPD?
I had horrible PPD with my first (not the "I'm afraid I might hurt my baby" kind, but the kind where I had a hard time emotinally connecting with her and I fantasized about running away..all the time). I didn't take meds (like an idiot) and it easily took 18 months to get over it.
This time, almost everything is different -- but I'm still afraid that monster will rear it's ugly head. (I even did the placenta encapsulation and am taking those pills.)
The baby is only 3 weeks old, so I know I"m not out of the woods yet -- but it makes me wonder, is there a time I can stop waiting for the other shoe to drop? For PPD to show up again?
