Since the birth of my baby 3 weeks ago, I?ve had spells of crying uncontrollably on and off. I feel like a lot of the depression and stress revolves around my challenges with breast feeding. But my mom and husband keep telling me that I look so miserable and that I should be happy.
I had a check up with my OB the other day and was bawling uncontrollably to the point that I could barely talk. Honestly I?m pretty embarrassed now when I think about my behavior but I felt completely out of control. The OB gently told me to make sure I forced myself to get outside and get some sunlight and that I?d feel better.
I forgot to ask him how I?d know if what I?m experiencing is ?baby blues? or PPD?
