This is embarassing, I feel so ashamed, and I do not know why but I dont know if the feelings I am experiencing are symptoms of post-partum depression or something else. I felt like this after I had my DD, just not this intense, but when I became pregnant with DS it went away, and I felt 'normal' and completely happy. In fact my husband jokes that the only time I am nice to him is when I am pregnant. I find myself becoming angry very easily, and I am very irratiable. I worry excessively about how I am going to get things done, like the dishes and the laundry and most days I am exhausted and want to sleep all the time so badly. I do not cry that much, but certain days, I cry all day. On top of this my son has colic, and his crying it sometimes unbearable. I love my children very much, I feel guilty for feeling like this, I feel like I should be happy. Also I do not know if this is anxiety or what, but I get this feeling in my stomach that goes up my throat and makes me feel like I cannot breathe when I get too stressed, I hope that makes sense. Do I just not handle stress well? I just feel I need some help but who do I call? I really don't have a regular doctor right now, can I call my OB?
