Most moms don't expect to feel down or depressed after giving birth, yet it's suprisingly common. Here's what we wish we'd known about the baby blues and postpartum depression.

Wish We'd Known: What No One Told Us About the Baby Blues and Postpartum Depression- http://www.ivillage.com/postpartum-depression-help-baby-blues/6-b-427705#ixzz1vW4aY5FG 

I thought this was a really great slideshow.  Anything you'd add to the list of things you wish you had known about baby blues and/or postpartum depression?

I thought the slide that said some days you will cry more than your baby was pretty accurate! I have had a couple days where every little thing has set me off, or I have been so exhausted that when I cannot get him back down to sleep or I am getting annoyed with my husband I will just start crying. I never expected that...
