Well I had my 6 week postpartum check-up with my doc yesterday. She diagnosed me with postpartum depression and decided to start me on an anti depressant. I'm not really surprised, but it does make me feel a little like a failure. With my oldest everyone in my family told me to expect some PPD because it was my first and it would be a huge change for me blah blah blah. But that didn't happen at all. I knew things would be tougher this time because I wouldn't just be caring for a newborn, our financial situation is a little tighter, and my husband is gone for work 17 hours a day 5 days a week. But I kind of hoped that I would be able to cope with it :-(.
