Well, I didn't do anything with Ronan's placenta (it's sitting in the freezer at the moment), but I did have a bunch of placenta capsules from DS2.
I was doing ok the first few days, MIL had the kids and DH was being so attentive! I really felt like we had 3 days of babymoon, I've never experienced such a peaceful time before!
But on day 4 DH went back to work and I had all 4 kids to myself. All of a sudden, just like that. So after a pretty rough day (DS wasn't latching hardly at all, plugged ducts, etc.) I decided it was time to try the caps.
Well I took 4 the next morning, and 4 in the afternoon and I felt so much better! Even just a couple of hours after my first 'dose' I could tell a drastic difference in how I felt.
I'm still getting emotional here and there, but nothing like I experienced with my first 3. And I've noticed that it's when I skip taking them that it happens.
So 4 caps 2x/day seems to be working really well for me.
I am so thankful to have something that works, if it hadn't I would be ready to talk to my Midwife about some temporary anti-depressants because it just gets pretty bad for me.
So yeah, I'm really happy with the results
