  • Jacqui says:
    I had a small case o baby blues wen my babygirl was born! I beat this by going 2 the park in my 101 dalmatians dressing gown late at nite an playing on the swing, sliding down the slide and playing in the sandpit. It helped me get a grip on wat was wat and made me laugh again an want 2 get bak 2 my babygirl.

    NO Lucky i guess

  • Alana says:
    Just the third day baby blues.

  • Roxy says:
    I suffered Post Natal Depression after my first baby and I was very protective over her and wouldn't leave her. I was too clingytowards her. And thought every time she got sick t was my fault

  • Toni says:
    no just hell and back

  • Kerrie says:
    No just the normal Baby Blues days after birth

  • Naomi says:
    Normal 1st time but this time I have struggled. Mostly because of lack of sleep there is no 'sleep when baby does' when there is a 2 year old in your life too! This leads to me being very very grumpy, struggle to hold my firey temper and was often angry at no2 for ever being born! :(

  • charlotte says:
    nope

  • Gemma says:
    I didn't have pre natal blues but I did have post natal blues, it affected me quite badly tbh and I did get quite depressed, and still have off days.

  • Lora says:
    With my first baby, I had major paranoia to the point that I constantly thought someone was gonna try to take him, and I also thought that I had to do everything perfect and keep my house spotless, etc. but I was of course exhausted from having the baby. This made me feel inadequate as a mother. So, I would say I def had ppd the first time. However, after my second baby, I might have had 'baby blues' for a couple of days just while my hormones were working themselves out, but nothing like the first time.

  • Alison says:
    no

  • Bertie says:
    No. I cried for a couple of days after the 2nd one was born but not because I was blue just because I was so very thankful!

  • Jennifer says:
    When we was trying to have wyatt and I was having female issues ~ took meds,blood tests every month, etc.... next step was to go more invasive but I said NO abviously I wasn't meant to have anymore and then 3 weeks later found out I was pregnant with Wyatt and 8 months after he was born found out I was pregnant with Veronica

  • Laurie says:
    when trying to have Nate it took 8 months...

  • Kenzi says:

  • debbie says:
    yes i would wash my sons clothes, make his bottles but wouldnt have anything 2 do with him took me 6wks b4 i did

  • Ashley says:
    if it means was I moody when I was prego then yes I cryed alot some times over silly stuff or I got mean and mad over lil stuff

  • Joe says:

    I did with my first. Not so much with my second.

  • Clare Louise says:

  • Michelle says:
    I was upset almost constantly durng my first pregnancy. I was alone and confused most of the time. I also had one of those pregnancies where everything seems to go wrong and you have every bad symptom in the book. This pregnancy is a lot better. My partner is with me and now he helps with absolutely everything. I can't even calm down enough to sleep at night without him next to me and it means the world to me that he tries.

  • Jaeb says:
    Not really, days we're all pretty much laxed with my first baby but as our family grew a lil bit more yeh I felt the pressures of being mom but I guess you learn to live with it.. Somewhat grown up haha

  • Jaime says:
    no

  • Winnie Takyiwah says:
    nope

  • Danielle says:

  • Andrea says:
    With my forth child I went through a mild prenatal 'blue' and I felt as though I didn't love him and didn't want him. However once we found out the sex of him and that everything was going fine I started to love him. My turning moment was when he kicked for the first time and I realised I wanted this baby so much.

  • Marin says:
    no I was lucky to not hav any blues. I wanted my baby so badly nothing could have brought me down

  • Allysha says:
    idk...i just feel so overwhelmed sometimes and need a break i guess

  • Tracy says:
    I think I did, and just kept pushing through and trying to squash it all down.

  • Coral says:
    I'm going through postportum depression right now. It's so hard because so much goes through my mind. From the last question(#7), at first he wasn't helping that much. I was mentally put down and he didn't offer much help. I didn't want to talk to him and he would get mad. There was so much going through my mind and it just over whelmed me. I started feeling down, depressed, crazy, and I just had to leave. Being from different parts of the world (I'm from the US and he is from the Philippines) doesn't help but we're working on that now. Now I'm back with him trying to work on the relatioship. Now he's helping. Leaving was the best thing because it gave us some time apart and we needed to just cool down from the overwhelming. My son is living with my mom for now and I miss him so much..

  • Victoria says:
    No not really

  • Heather says:

  • kerry says:
    no

  • Rachel says:
    no

  • Ashley says:
    oh god i was a mess, ialmost completly distroyed my relationship with josh, and hardly wanted to leave the bed,

  • Alyssa says:
    Oh yeah. I think the worst part was I was unable to nurse my son while I had postpardom, he wasn't able to latch on, so I felt like I was unsuccessful as a mother.

  • Janis says:
    I had pre natal blues. All I could think of was how things were going to change around the house and how a baby would change the relationship between my husband and I. But really, once the baby came along it wasn't anything like I thought. The family felt complete and I was happy with that.
