I know it's common to get "the blues" after giving birth - but how soon, and to what extent? I've been crying on and off since around 6pm tonight over everything and nothing - going back to work in five weeks, a rerun of Undercover Boss, the chicken being a little too dry from the crock pot. These are huge cries too, not just whimpering or silent tears. I am getting plenty of sleep thanks to a pretty content LO and DH being laid off so I can nap during the day when needed, so I know it's not that.
Should I see if this eventually goes away on its own or talk to a doctor about it? I do have clinical depression, and am already on meds for this. However, I've been doing *great* through the pregnancy and this time after having LO.
