1212601 tn?1276920691 I'm loving being a mother but boy oh boy did it put a strain on my relationship. In the hospital I thought things were going to be great, and for the first couple days they were. However, after the initial shock of Laenna being born, her father completely turned around. I have to ask him for help with every day things. I feel like our relationship is completely ruined.
Avatar f tn I'm 11 months postpartum with my third son. Normal, vaginal delivery with epidural and no complications. 3 weeks after delivery, I had horrible spasms at my epidural injection site - they were so painful I collapsed. Since then, ive had balance issues, brain fog, numbness and tingling that travels to various places, tingly/numb tongue, back and neck pain, achy muscles and joints...I could go on and on. I've had extensive work ups and MRIs...
Avatar n tn Hypothyroidism has the same symptoms as ppd? I didnt know that. What were your symptoms? I just get really emotional at times (like pms times 1 million). I miss my baby horribly, and I cry at the drop of a hat. This is why I thought it may be PPD.
1473759 tn?1415369316 The last few days I have been feeling kinda down... It's like in the begining of pregnancy you can't wait till the end, but now that the end is near I am not sure if it's just anxiety or if it's possible to have postpartum while still pregnant. I don't want to let him go yet. I think that part of it is too that a bunch of the family is "taking time off to help out" I told my husband what do they think I am just going to push him out and hand him over?
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have postpartum depression before the baby is even here? I feel like I'm losing my mind.
Avatar f tn ve been reading so many crazy stories about worn and postpartum depression. I was just wondering how many of you second time mommies went through this? And how exactly did you guys cope with it? My best friend went through it so bad and in just mega scared I might go through it as well!
Avatar n tn The symptoms of numbness and tingling and skin sensations are symptoms of anxiety and depression. If you suffer from anxiety and depression, you are sure to experience these symptoms. So these symptoms are related to anxiety and depression and not childbirth as such. You are likely to experience the symptoms if you have anxiety and depression without childbirth also. Please keep yourself free from stress and be happy with the baby. Please consult a psychotherapist for help.
Avatar f tn Hello there, indeed it could be sign of depression and depression is pretty common in miscarriage events. You and your boyfriend need each other more than ever so working on your couple could be a good thing. Another option would be to go for a therapy. You are still young so I do really think the depression is temporary and that you don't need medication. I know such event is hard to forget but you will eventually get over it.
Avatar f tn How many of you ladies have/had postpartum depression and did you take medication for it or try and "ride-it-out"? What were your symptoms and how long did they last? Ive definitely been having bouts of depression and feelings of being overwhelmed - yesterday I was in Walmart and called hubby to ask about an item and he asked me to get something else and I suddenly felt overwhelmed and like I was going to cry! LOL.

Avatar f tn doesnt sound like postpartum depression just depression,not that thats any better really but do speak to your doctor or a counsellor and get some help,its an awful thing if it gets out of hand..
Avatar f tn Hi hun im going through something similar with the lack of help from hubby as he works and also home bound and constant worrying. I got twins they are 4weeks now. However in not letting it get the better of me. I did get it really bad with my son 4yrs ago after his birth and i can tell you the depression didnt last long as i kept myself busy. But the anxiety n worrying came back in full force after couple of years.
Avatar f tn t inside them anymore and they miss it, among other things. Its pretty common. If you have depression in general you are more likely to get postpartum depression. Ask your doctor about it and make sure you keep in touch with a doctor after birth incase you experience it and they can help you through it.
Avatar n tn In general, most of the time, one gets sorted out with time. A very dangerous condition that can occur is postpartum depression. There are some conditions that can be unmasked in pregnancy such as Lupus, Multiple sclerosis, thyroid disorders. I suggest that you see your primary care doctor for a thoughtful look at you to see if any of the aforementioned conditions need to be evaluated. best wishes and good luck to you.
Avatar f tn I also began taking fluoxetine (20mg) and a low dose of trazadone for postpartum depression and anxiety. My symptoms started approximately 4 weeks after starting these medications. I drink roughly 3/4 glasses of wine per week, and take ibuprofen as needed (roughly 1 or 2 times a week to help relieve sinus headaches) Could the new meds I’m taking be causing the bruising and sweating?
Avatar f tn I told my family doctor and she advised me that is normal after pregnancy and is part of the postpartum depression. I did not feel I was depressed and I had no symptoms of postpartum depression, and still 3 years later after I had my baby I feel that way. Everytime I get close with my husband I have to force myself or it just takes soo long....

Avatar n tn With that though is postpartum depression can happen for up to 2 years after the birth of your child so you are going thru postpartum and pregnancy depression all in one but it normal. But make sure you sit down in talk to someone about anything you may be second guessing your self on or if you are getting over whelmed. Please dont be afraid to ask for help. Because it will eat you up inside if you try to do it alone and bottle it in.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Fibro 5 months ago, my husband likes to have gatherings, cook outs, this usually go until 1-2-3 even 4 o'clock in the morning! I also suffer from migraine headaches, empty cella, anxiety, depression, OCD TO NAME A FEW!! I work full time and raise 5 teenagers! I have to sleep at least 8 hrs or I can't function!
Avatar f tn Some women take these pills to gain nutrition postpartum or to avoid postpartum depression. The research does not support this. In fact, there is substantial research showing that the placental nutrients are no longer useful to your body after the drying process. Research does show that keeping the cord unsevered until the placenta stops sending blood is extremely helpful to the baby.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if I have mild postpartum depression or not. I lose my temper really quickly, have awful mood swings and just don't generally feel myself. The only thing that makes me feel better is my beautiful daughter. I don't know what to do with myself when she's asleep.
