PPD Ladies...How are you doing?
Wed, 11-30-2011 - 12:36pm

Just wanting to check in and see how you're all feeling...

With the help of the holidays and outside stressors, my baby blues have turned into full blown depression. Oddly I manage to keep up the house and go through the daily tasks but feel almost zombie-like. It probably doesn't help that Abbie went from being pretty good natured to not sleeping at night (up every two hours) and she has begun not tolerating anyone but me.. All she does is cry when I leave her with DH..even if it's just to check the mail.. It probably also doesn't help that my 3 yr. old also has seperation issues and won't even let me go into the bedroom to feed Abbie without her when my DH is home.. :( I know it will get better but right now I feel like fast forwarding to Jan...wait make that March, it's too cold in Jan and Feb... ::sigh::

How's everyone else doing with the holidays, little ones, and life in general??

Well, I have had about a little over a week of teary-ness until Saturday... then a bout of major frustration with dh.
