Bub also arrived as a bit of a shock...he was induced because my hind waters broke but nothing happened and it was a quick labour too. I have also struggled a lot more since he has been born than I did after my first. This time I really couldn't bare to let him cry at all whereas it didn't stress me out so much with my first. I have ended up with PND (that's what we're calling it anyway) and started antidepressants just over a month ago because I just wasn't coping. Probably should have started a few months ago but anyway. Bub is almost 9 months old. My period still hasn't returned yet so I'm not sure what will happen with that. I've been dreading it cause of the return of PNDD symptoms.
I have been looking into alternatives to try and actually correct imbalances in my body to help sort out the PNDD and I'll try and explain a bit more later if you're interested. It's looking promising but haven't been doing it for very long so can't say much yet. Just don't have much time now to explain cause my oldest is in hospital with pneumonia.
Wishing you all the best and hope your pregnancy goes smoothly! xx
