Hi everyone. I just had my fourth child and am having bouts of PPD. My husband reminds me that I had the same thing happen with the other three but it still feels real lousy. Although I was "done" being pregnant I am so sad it is over. We decided before this one that we are not going to have any more children so this is truly the end and it sure feels that way. Like a huge part of my life is over. Even though we have a beautiful healthy baby boy I am sad it was not a girl. (I have two boys and a girl already). I really wanted another girl and feel so guilty that I look at my son and wish that things were different. He really is the cutest thing and it is not his fault he is a boy. Fortunately, these feelings do not exist all day long. For some reason they come mostly at night. Has anyone had the same feelings. Love to hear from you. Thanks!
