PPD I hate you..

I've gotten it with my other two and I feel it coming on with this baby too.. She's 12 days and I keep crying at the drop of a hat. I'm not normally a cryer, so this totally sucks for me. I'm pretty sure this bout is Bc of all of the stress with my family prior to giving birth so I think it's going to be tougher to fight naturally. Although I know what to do to fight PPD naturally, it's such a struggle because.. Well.. It's depression... Ugh. I don't want to go through this again.

I'm sorry you feel like that. I had it with my oldest daughter, she was such a terror and my life was in a really bad spot. I just wanted to leave her somewhere and drive but didn't even have that option. I only weighed 100lbs, which is about 20 less than my skinny weight and was scared to ask for help. Eventually I got better. With my son I was on cloud 9, he was a great baby, my life was pretty great, my husband was excited to have a son. This time I've been happy but a little down. I don't know what it is but she's a good baby, I just feel blah and upset with where we are now. I've lost a lot of family since having my son and I have a hard time enjoying my narcissistic sister and miserable dad. I hope you feel better soon, talk about it and it definitely helps sort out the feelings.

Ppd stinks! I had it horribly with my second. She had colic and was a very hard baby.. She cried all.the.time. I also had a 16.5 month old. I didn't want to ask for help and no one could help me with feedings bc she wouldn't take a bottle for me to pump until 4 months... I took 3 months of therapy to help me and
It worked wonders!

I had ppd but only the last two deliveries when I was extremely stressed about having to return to work! Thank god I had short term disability and my ppd qualified me to stay out paid for a full 6 months after. But I have since stopped working and this pregnancy I'm excited to not have that burden of job performance or returning to work afterwards. I only ebf I don't use bottles so most of my issues revolved around stressing over how my baby would eat if I had to go back to work and leave them.

I definitely had some with DS also, and struggling to breastfeed didn't help. :/

I'm praying to God that this time is different.

(HUGS) mama... My motto was and is "one day at a time" and "no struggle is forever, and this too shall pass"....

I'm genuinely fearful of PPD with this baby.

I'm already slightly down about having to go back to work so soon :( I can't imagine how I'll feel when the time comes for me to leave him *sigh* Not to mention I'm already stressing on pumping for him...I've never had to pump. I FF my oldest, then my two younger girls were both EBF as I was a SAHM...this will be the first baby I've ever BF and had to pump out of necessity. I'm not expecting good results. Ugh.

Try not to stress about pumping.. It will work out :) I pumped with my first two, it wasn't too bad. With my first he ended up stopping nursing at 5 months because he was bottle fed so much. I lost a lot of my supply Bc of birth control too. My second never would bottle feed and would wait until I got off of work to eat- granted she was 5 months when I went back to work, so she could eat baby food. She learned to drink from a cup super early too but still wouldn't take milk from a cup.
This is my first time being a SAHM and I'm glad that I don't have to worry about pumping but stress is definitely affecting me this time around.
