So I'm wondering if I have PPD or if it's just a normal case of the baby blues. With DS all I really remember about this time is feeling as if I was in a fog because I was tired.
Right now, though, I don't know. I'm not suicidal or depressed. I just feel very out of sorts. I like routine, I like consistency, and I guess I struggle with change a bit. Having a new baby obviously throws off any routine we had. I don't regret having LO by any means, I just want to feel normal again. I miss sleeping in bed with my husband and I want my body to feel normal; I'm tired of being engorged and needing to use that damn squirt bottle to pee. And I really worry about DS because he isn't getting the same amount of attention from me (not so much because of LO but because of how sore I am).
I'm also pretty damned weepy. I don't know what it is, I usually don't have a reason to cry and I'm not really sad, but I just leak. It drives me nuts. I don't like crying and it makes me cry more.
I'll be a week PP tomorrow. Does this seem normal?
Just keep positive and busy yourself. I have depression mostly because it was left untreated and I went through hell and back after my son was born.
Being around good people is what helped me through it though. Having a good support system is helpful.
