I was all over the place for the first 2 or 3 weeks. For me it just went away and my emotions settled down. Do you have a local child health nurse or public/community nurse who will be coming to see you? I think you should chat to her, she can tell you if this is just normal hormonal new-mom stuff that will pass or if it is the baby blues.

You ask how you could have not known.... I barely knew what day it was! I couldn't think straight or remember anything. Lean on your supportive husband and I'm sure you will return to normal soon.

I had them undiagnosed for 6 months. You may feel good tonight, but tomorrow you may go right down again. Its a really bad roller coaster of emotions. The best thing to do is get help asap. See you maternal health nurse, or dr and see if they can recommend someone for you to see. As soon as i saw a counsellor about it i felt so much better. i still have my down days, and my daughter is 9 months old, but in general now everything is great. Hope it all works out for you :)
