Hi all,

I think I have a fierce case of baby blues.  I've just been in a funk since giving birth in June.  I don't know if I'm just feeling baby blues and the exhaustion is making it worse, or if it is something more.  How did you know you were dealing with PPD?

Congratulations on giving birth to your new little one!  Having a baby in the house sure does change things and I can understand why you may feel like you are in a funk.  Have you talked to your doctor about how you are feeling?  If you have not had a chance to give him/her a call, I'd highly suggest doing so. You shouldn't have to suffer and they may have some tips/ideas to help you during this period of time. (((HUGS))) coming your way.  Please update us when you have a chance and let us know how you are doing.

Please talk to your doctor and seek support from those around you.  Your family, and friends can take on tasks for you during this difficult time. A good resource is the booklet Taking Care of Mom: Nurturing Self As Well As Baby available online at http://www.ask.hrsa.gov/detail_materials.cfm?ProdID=4291
