My ppd checkup

Went this morning for the evaluation of ppd after convincing myself for a couple weeks I needed to call. After the survey I am considered to be mild ppd. got aRx for zoloft and she said follow up in a month to check the dose but will treat for 6 months.

They also took blood to check my thyroid cuz she said pp hormones can mess with the thyroid, said unlikely, but it was worth checking.

Asked about me still bleeding at 7 weeks pp and it got heavy this week at work and she ordered an us, that is saturday. Don't know what they may find or how they will treat so we will see.

so we will see what happens with the zoloft. I hope it will allow me to start bonding with my baby girl
