    Sad more than the baby blues?

    I think I may have more than the baby blues.. I think I may have PPD this time.

    I am so up and down and I'm sad and lonely most of the time. I am tired beyond words. I cry about everything. I go from zero to witch in a blink! I have a headache all the time and I feel sick to my stomach most of the time. I just don't care about stuff like I usually do... I can't get motivated. I'm hungry all the time and I'm starting to gain weight intead of lose it. I feel bloated and crampy off and on (since Nathan was about 2 weeks old). I just want to get in bed with the covers over my head, but I can't even do that! - I can never get comfy enough to stay in bed long and the kids need me. I hate being like this... I want to be normal. I have a drs appt for monday but I don't know what he will be able to do for me.

    I would definitely talk to you doctor about it. I'm not an expert on the baby blues but I know that mine only lasted two weeks and were never that severe. Whatever is wrong, I hope your doc knows what to do.
