I was wondering if because I had PPD with DS, does that mean I am going to get it again after I give birth this time around? I am terrified of getting it again, at least this time I will be better aware of the symptoms.
I believe I read that having ppd previously increases your risk of it with subsequent pregnancies. However, I talked to my OB during my second pregnancy, and we made a mutual decision to start me on antidepressants immediately after delivery, as opposed to waiting til things got bad. It's the best thing I ever did for myself. So that may be a possibility if you are really worried about it (like I was!)
I'm scared of this too, had it with DS but never "admitted" to it, spent a lot of days crying and still feel bad about it, feel like my DS "knows" and like I was a bad mom at first. I hope it is not as bad this time around. I think maily it was becasue I feel like I lost myself and was very lonely and felt like I didn't know what to do.
