Another Intro — The Bump
Postpartum Depression

Another Intro

Just wanted to introduce myself.  I just had an appt. with my OB and officially belong here now. Some background:  I had PPD with my first son.  Since it manifested itself as anger, more so than sadness, I didn't think I had a problem.  Finally, at around 4 months pp, while at a routine checkup with my PCP, I broke down, told him everything, and he put me on Lexapro.  I took the Lexapro for about 6 months, then weaned myself off of it (and felt great).  I got pregnant with #2 about 4 months later.

This time around, I decided to be proactive and scheduled a follow-up appt. with my OB at my 6-week appt.  This time I am definitely suffering from more of the depression aspect.  She has ordered some thyroid testing since I feel I am more exhausted than I should be, having trouble losing weight (which doesn't help the depression), referred me to a counselor (and a marriage counselor---whole other issue there) and put me on Zoloft.  So we'll see how this goes...
