Holli that's great! I wish I had recognized it for what it was when DS was born, but given all that was going on with my health I just wrote it off as part of it. I had a really rough six months or so, though. Thanks for your update - it helps me to feel a little more prepared going into this second delivery/birth! Enjoy that little cutie! Glad to see you back on the boards!

I am off my anti depressants and feel like myself. PPD is bad, it's ugly, it's scary...and it is something you can overcome. I have finally been let go of its grasp...and it feels good. I am off my meds for 3 weeks now, and everything is great! My son is 7 months old and I have been on meds since he was 11 days old...It was a long process but I am so glad I realized it for what it was so soon...

Just wanted to give a little encouragement out there for the other mom's who are still battling, you will get through it!!
