Don't even know if to call this PPD ...

I have given birth to my LO since Dec. 2011. Now we are expecting LO #2 this September, very unexpected since I was on birth control. I went through a lot with my first since she was a preemie. I felt sad for not bringing her home with me when I was discharged.With this pregnancy I feel a mess. I feel like I'm losing myself. I'm not longer me, but just mom.I feel upset most of the time, I've cried a lot for the past days. I don't feel that happy to have another one on the way. I feel this new baby more like an intruder since I have a great bond with LO. I cry just thinking about being a mom for 2 under 2. I don't think I can do this emotionally. DH & myself are having more frequent issues because I'm not that happy. I need advice, I don't know if I posted in the right board,but it doesn't hurt to try. Thank you all for listening.

Re: Don't even know if to call this PPD ...

  • There is such a thing as INTRApartum depression. Like PPD, it's not something to ignore, especially with your feelings of the new baby going to be an "outsider." I would definitely talk to your OB/midwife at your next appointment and even consider making one much sooner specifically to discuss this.
  • Thank you for the advice, I really feel lost. I have a dr. appointment in a few days.
