Well had my appointment but my doctor doesn't really like putting people on antidepressants and she says it might just be hormones so she wants me to try going on the birth control pill first and then come back in 2 months and see if that's been helping. I feel a bit disappointed but I hope it helps some. Maybe even help my anxiety.
Thats interesting. I started my antidepressents the day after Kellen was born this time around just because of my history. The BC route really wouldnt work well for me since it usually causes me to end up on antidepressants, and the fact that Im nursing. Why are your docs down there so anti giving you guys meds?
I think I might be having some mild PPD this time. I didn't have any with DD, but I'm so much more likely to be overwhelmed by things this time, and to break down into tears. It's not too bad (and it's only been this week that I've felt it), but if it doesn't go away soon I might bring it up to my midwife.
I hope everyone else is getting the help they need and that much happier times are on their way!

I suffered from ppd with DS1. It was pretty severe, I was on Zoloft for awhile, and at a pretty high dose of it. This time around I don't know if I have ppd, my hormones are still changing from birth, or if it is just my regular anxiety heightened. Most of the time I feel ok, but every time I wake up in the middle of the night to josh crying (not at his normal eating times, but waking up at random other times), I just break down crying because I am so tired and just want to sleep.
With DS1, I knew I had ppd pretty immediately after birth, but I only started having these feelings since josh came home 2 weeks ago, so it started a bit later this time. I'm waiting it out because its not bad right now, but will definitely go in for meds if needed.
