Postpartum Depression

Parenting Kids & Dogs

After having already had three children and a houseful of dogs and cats I pretty much thought I was prepared for our fourth baby, Kelsyann. I'm an experienced Mom right?!? This should be easy.

Well boy was I wrong! From the beginning Kelsyann has been a needy baby. Nothing that worked with the others seemed to work for her. This has been interesting, frustrating and challenging at best!

Running is my PPD anti-depressant

I delivered a beautiful baby girl in August of 07'. The first couple of days I had a lot of energy felt good for the first time in a long time. But after about 2 days it hit me again. I thought why am I so sad why cant I just feel normal. We were in the process of buying a house while we were pregnant and we ended up signing at the hospital the day our daughter was born. We weren't moved in at all, there was no nursery to lay my baby down, and the house chaotic. I figured maybe I was sad I never got the opportunity to nest.

Laughing Through the Chaos - 5 milligrams is all it takes

I've got a great support network of other moms online, and one day I told them that I was really irritable and stupid little things were really pissing me off. I told them that I'd cry really easily over stuff that never would have bothered me before. Postpartum depression was brought up. I shrugged it off and said - nope, not me, not depressed.
