Postpartum Depression


Tagging Jordan

My returned missionary and current missionary.

I experienced postpartum depression after Jordan was born. It lasted four months. I expect it will last the same amount of time this time around.

This post made me a little teary. I only have one son, it's going to be a bitter-sweet day!

Cute, cute missionary! I love these pics.

Tina said...

We'll help you get through it.

Postpartum depression SUCKED! I agree with Tina, we'll have to help you get through it. Missed you today, by the way. What helps? Chocolate? Chick flicks? Kleenex?

I can't even understand how hard that must be - you are a stronger woman every time, though, right? Four months isn't bad, but then summer would be over, so we gotta figure something out sooner than that :) I'll be calling you! (that sounds a lot more threatening than fun when I type it than when I think it :))

I'll be over with the eclair cake. Nothing helps depression better than that!

yay! you are back. hope it all went well despite the onset of postpartum depression. my mom and i were just reminiscing about those days with jaime as jonathan will be around the corner. crazy that the boys are all grown up!

Ilene said...

Well, at least you looked adorable.

That is half the battle, right?

Can't wait to have him here in Boise!

Migraine hangovers can be brutal. Yes, I like matinee's--but would need to get a babysitter, so I have to plan ahead. I need your email address, so we can communicate directly. :-)

By the way, I have lots of "chick flicks" you can borrow, if you need a good girl movie.

My heart goes out to you. I know I will be a mess when I send mine out too. You wore your awesome animal print shirt-thats good luck!

gab said...

I cannot imagine doing this!

But...I will be more sad if my boys don't serve missions...so I guess you can't win!

Hang in there and keep us posted.

awww i can't even imagine how it feels. when my youngest brother went on his mission my mom was really bad. I have never seen her like she was. My dad gave her a few blessings and it really did help. I know that sounds really cliche' but, it might help. just a thought

What a joyous and sad occasion! Here is to hoping for a speedy two years...

Pregnancy is one of the most important phases of a woman's life and unfortunately sometimes in this phase a woman gets caught in the web of depression. Though depression during pregnancy is not uncommon, it can be dangerous for both the mother and the unborn baby. http://www.xanax-effects.com/
