Could it Be a Sign of PostPartum Depression?

I have no idea of what is going on with me lately. I am so sensitive that even harmless words could affect me and make me cry.Last night,in bed before going to sleep,there's a certain single word that my husband said to me that sounded unpleasant to my ears,as if it hurts me deeply and he doesn't know it. He went to sleep...snoring right away while me crying silently..naks nag amards ba..until past 1 o'clock I was still crying.When I remember it in the morning,I cried again and could not talk or treat him well.

He was trying to make a conversation with me but I choose to be cold to him.it's just me..if I don't feel like talking to him I just stay quiet or say very few words or not at all.Today,we were gonna go together to Arlington(approximately an hour drive from here) to get his Porsche car muffler done but I refused to go with him.Way lami kuyog oi ug d naku feel kig talk niya bahala pud.

Here I am left in the house with the baby..feeling so lonely,weak and lousy...could it be signs of postpartum depression? Who knows?

Bag-o man gud ka nanganak gats nag adjust pa moha hormones...

Naa raba ingon ana gyud labi na manganak ka tumong sa winter, so na mixed pud na sa winter blues cguro.

Okey ra uy...pwedi man ka talk sa nurse or midwives inig nila diha sa inyoha. Kay kato ako nanganak sa una every week o nila ginabisita to check how well I am coping as well as the baby. Then naa pud mga question and answer na tubagon nimo just to find out kung ala baka nag post-natal depression or baby blues mga ingon ana.

Mawala rana gats but naay uban baya mo worst pud.

Try to think something lang or do something nga exciting and fun.

Hello,
I am a Filipino Canadian and have been living here in North America for the last 18 years. I know how you feel. The only difference we have is, I've been here far too long that I tend to answer back, when my husband tells me something that is very unpleasant to my ears. BTW, I am also married to a North American man. My advice for you my dear, is to talk to your husband and let him know how you feel. Don't just sit in the corner and be quiet. That won't do you any good. Communication is very important. That is the key to a better and long lasting relationship.

Another thing is, you just had a baby and of course, being a first time MOM is just overwhelming. Try to get some sleep when your baby is sleeping and also eat healthy...more fruits and vegetables especially that you're breast feeding. Please do remember that what you eat and what you do also affect your baby.

If you feel that, that is a sign of postpartum depression, you need help from your doctor. But the thing is, I don't agree with taking medications for depression. Why don't you talk to your friends or have them visit you when you're feeling down. You can also try to do some postpartum exercises that will help you relax, for instance, yoga. Breathing exercises even just for 15 minutes a day, will help you relieve the stress and tension of being at home with a baby.

Anyway, I just hope my comment will help you in some ways. Keep smiling and take good care of yourself, the baby and your husband, too. ;-)

Hi Byotipol,
Yes it can be a sign of postpartum depression. It is best that you discuss the matter with your husband because I'm sure he meant no harm. Just tell him that you were hurt by that one word and let him apologize to you and immediately accept his apologies. No use carrying the burden and depression too long in your heart. Bitterness may set in and you may have a bigger problem later on. Things will be always alright because you truly love each other. Just don't be too "balat sibuyas." Thanks for your post. God bless you and your family always.

Bitaw day, tell your hubby how you feel ba. Kay dili mana sya makabalo unsa imong gibati. I'm sure he is worried of what's going on but you have to fill him in. Dili man ko medically train pero naa koy co-worker dinhi na after sya nanganak naka experienced gyud ug postpartum depression (within a year after pregnancy). One of the symptoms kay anang loss of interest or pleasure in activities. It could be baby blues but who knows. Good job pud day kay you posted how you feel sa internet that way you can get support from your online friends put. Try to rest as much as you can. I know dili lalim but I believe you will be fine. Keep us posted. :)

You have a wonderful weekend,

Ana

hello ann, i just read it and i had a friend here in the UK who is a clinical manager and i ask her about your feelings, she said that she had that feeling as well when she born her baby, she advice that you need to see a doctor because she said that might be a sign, better to do it early coz they will give you tablets to stop it.or else talk to your hubby and find things to make you feel good asside from youe cute, beautiful and ohhhh....basta gwapa baby....
