I am not sure if it is normal, or a sign of depression, but in the late avo's I start to feel really down and sad. I hate the feeling, I dont know why it somes, there is no 'real' reason.
I have a toddler and 3 month old, however overall things are going great and I am coping. Obviously there are days were my toddler is a terrible two yr old, but I love him to bits.
Does anyone else ever feel this way or felt this way before?
I seem to be ok in the morning and day time, it hits later in the day.

Feeling 'down' in the late afternoons

I used to feel this way in the late afternoon and night. Id start to feel really down and think about horrible things. Sometimes I'd wake up in the middle of the night and think horrid thoughts.
I haven't felt that way in a while but those feelings come up when I'm sick with a cold or flu.

Maybe I was just extra tired last night. I feel ok this morning, but I know tonight it will come back. Thanks.

Has something happened recently to make you feel this way?
Are you alone at home at night?
Maybe try distracting yourself tonight. Pop on a funny movie, put on some feel good music, have a hot bath, do something that makes you feel good.
I don't feel this way anymore because I associated the darkness with "yayyy DS will be in bed soon and I can relax." lol Maybe you need to associate it with something that feels good.
That sounded so dirty lol

This used to happen to me a lot and still does sometimes. I have always put it down to anxiety about DS's sleeping and the whole night time routine thing. Things have improved since we have got him settling better at night and I'm getting more organised. Also I think it has something to do with anxiety about the next day. Like what's happening or lack of what's happening (can feel like groundhog day here sometimes).
Maybe if you can get to the bottom
of what's causing these emotions they'll improve. Really hope that things get better soon. Lots of good vibes.

Getting out for a run/jog/walk or some other kind of exercise at that time would work wonders

Could it be seasonal? I always feel sad when it starts getting dark early. I find winter in general is quite depressing.

I have been the same lately. Then I start thinking about how much I miss my kids. I've found a good diet and less coffee can help my body from feeling crap, which in turn sometimes stops my mind bringing me down as far.
