There are things that trigger low feelings, like on days when Owee's hands and feet are bluer than his normal, or when I come across something that I got when he was in the hospital. It is a different type of feeling low than the up and down wave of postpartum depression.

I had postpartum depression with my first born daughter. It started just a few short days after delivery and was very serious. I would have loved more support during that time. My suggestion for any new moms would be as soon as you notice signs call your doctor immediately.

When I had my youngest child, I suffered from this illness right after I had her. I had a lot of crying spells, and sadness. It was not an easy time for me. I had two toddlers, in addition to my newborn child. I am not sure why I got the post-partum depression with the youngest baby, but not so much with the other two. That was a long, long time ago, but I still remember how I suffered with it.

I had postpartum depression with both my children - it took years after each one to finally over come it. People do not understand what depression is unless they suffer from it. It is the most crippling illness I have ever experienced - there is no future, no sunshine just this big black hole that quite literally envelopes you. You feel unable to do anything even the simplest things are just too much. Your thought ruminate as you try to push your way through the blackness in your mind to the sunlight where you can begin to function again.
