Quoting Love Wedge +2:" It was immediate with my son. I love being his mom. I feel that mushy mom stuff they advertise in movies ... [snip!] ... sense. I feel very little of that with my daughter. I love her, obviously, but I don't get that same joy as I do with my son."
I had pretty bad PPD with my daughter and none with my son. I actually feel like giving birth to my son cured the PPD I had with my daughter. Two totally different experiences. And I feel guilty about that too.
Although I don't feel depressed anymore, some residual feelings remain, only
with my daughter. I am extremely paranoid with her, check on her constantly, etc. while I feel calm and laid back about my son, and I feel excessive guilt for not doing everything perfectly
with her, and I don't feel that with my son either.
Do you think it could be something like that?
