I'm almost 39 weeks with my third baby and feel like I'm having the baby blues I had postpartum in the past. Mostly crying for reasons I can't pinpoint and not knowing how to make myself feel better. It's no more frequent than my usual postpartum experience -- a couple bouts a day.
Up until now, I've felt pretty well. Was super nesty over the weekend, but feel like I've crashed into wanting to do nothing and just feeling grumpy.
I'm also extremely impatient/intolerant with my 5 yo and 2 yo. I can't help but to want someone else to take care of them for me so I can be alone and not deal with the slightest need or complaint. I feel guilty about it, which will trigger my short bouts of crying.
Has anyone else had this? Did anything help you through it? I'm hoping I won't be more prone to PPD because of this early experience. Thanks for any stories you can share.
