My DS is almost a year and we've been talking about starting TTC starting in the summer. With DS, I had what I thought was baby blues but when he turned 6 months and I still felt bad, I finally went to the Dr. I was diagnosed with PPD/A and was put on meds. I just recently weaned off of them and I'm finding that while I have my stressful moments (which I think the meds helped surpress a little) that I'm doing fine without them.
With us TTC in the upcoming months, I do have this constant concern of handling a two year old, a newborn and possibly dealing with PPD/A again. Moms with more than one child, did you get PPD with both pregnancies? How did you handle it?
I'm determined to work my way through it no matter what, and not let it control my life or decisions, but I do have a fear of everything falling apart because of the PPD.
TIA. I'm so glad I found this message board!
