So i have a question and i was wondering if anyone else has the same feelings. This is very hard for me to talk about to anyone. I havn't spoke to anyone about it, and i think it's time!
I had my daughter 5 months ago and i've felt great for about the first 3 months. Recently i've been having really bad mood swings and just being very mean. Not to my daughter but to people that are very close to me. Mostly my husband and my mom. I don't mean to be but i just snap at the smallest things (with my husband). Like him not putting stuff away or him sleeping in a little late. It's just gotten very bad in the past week. I started crying yesterday for the first time just because i don't feel i'm good enough for him, and his family. What really makes it worse is that his family makes me feel as if i don't know what i'm doing. Basicly talking down to me. And it's funny because we live in Kansas and they live in California. We have very different family values!!
My daughter was born a little early and i had morning sickness for 9 months!!! She only weighed a lil over 4 pounds. His family wanted to know why, what did I do wrong? The doctor even told me I did nothing wrong.
So basicly my question is..Is this PPD?? Or me just being mean?? I love my daughter and she seems to be they only one that can calm me down. Even when she's screaming crying!
