Although I have had issues with depression with both of my other pregnancies (and this one too) but never had a problem with PPD... It seems like once the baby comes out, I am all good, it is just the hormones during pregnancy that make me blue
I had PND (prenatal depression) with both of my previous pregnancies. The first time around, I didn't know what it was. The second time, I tried a zillion natural remedies (herbs, supplements, yoga, counseling, etc!) but eventually went on a very low dose of Zoloft in my 3rd trimester. (Which. Was. Awesome!) Went off of the Zoloft around 3 weeks postpartum because I just didn't need it anymore, at all; instead of making me super-awesome-calm like it did during the pregnancy, it made me feel numb and bored. ...So, yeah, I'm backwards, too.
This pregnancy, though, I am not having the same mood swings (or suicidal thoughts, or threats of divorce over trivial things...); I actually feel like a normal pregnant person. So not sure what that means for me postpartum this time, but I still want to consume the placenta for help with my physical recovery. Both postpartum periods were the worst I've ever felt physically, and I really hope to somehow make it go easier this time.
