Dd is nearly 6 weeks old and I really don't know if I am getting pnd again. I had it with both ds.
She has screamed what feels like non stop for 2 days. This morning all I have done is cry. Which was embarrassing on the school runhmm
I don't feel low as such just slightly out of control. Everyone else with babies the same age seem so calm and in control.
Last time I had it I locked myself away and did no housework etc. I am not that bad now.
I don't know if I should go to the dr or see how it goes today.
Sorry this is long

Should add I love my daughter so much and don't want to hurt her or the boys. I just don't want to go back to the dark horrible place I was in with both boys

I think you should go and talk to your GP.

You've been through this before and it does sound as if you're slipping into it again, so best to catch it early.

Thank you have rung the dr. Think I just needed someone else to tell me to do it

I'm sure your GP will understand why you have come to see them, with a history of PND twice before. And they most definitely will not see you as someone who has thoughts of harming your DC, so don't worry about that.

I hope they can help you - I'm sure they will be very understanding about why you are seeing them as a precaution against slipping down so low again.

All the best x
