Before I had DS I was always a super happy person. Usually always in a good mood, laughed a lot, just very happy. Since having DS I feel like I am not myself. Not that I am never happy or sad, just not myself. It is hard to explain.
I feel overwhelmed all the time. Of couse, I have a 4 month old, work full time, never get more than 3 hours of sleep at once, and we just moved a month ago.
I am questioning DH and I's relationship and there is no really reason. He is great and there is no reason for me to be unhappy in our marriage. I was fine before.
I used to love to get out and shop. Now, if I am not at work I just want to stay home. When we have to go out on the weekends, I try to rush and I just want to get back home. DH got mad at me this weekend because I was rushing and angry because I wasn't at home.
It just crossed my mind for the first time yesterday that possible this was PPD. I don't feel depressed, just not myself. I don't know if this is normal because I have so much going on and I am so tired or if it could be PPD. I looked up the symptoms on WebMd and I don't have many of them. I never feel like I would hurt DS or myself, I don't cry a lot or anything like that.
How did you other girls with PPD feel? Sorry this post is so long, it feels good writing this out though.
