How late can PND start?

I'm trying to work out if how I feel is the start of depressin or just a short period of being overwhelmed by life. I have a 3.5 year old and 7 month old twins. Just recently I've started to feel completely swamped by everything. My children are a delight, and in many ways I'm enjoying it more second time around, even though it is tougher, and it's hard on my older child, which I don't like. I have very little support - no family nearby, husband working long hours, local friends who have busy lives. And I'm starting to find myself in tears daily. I live for the brief moments of freedom that I get. DH works long hours, and even when he's around he just talks about how tired he is and how he needs to rest after work or he'll get ill. And all I want is help with giving three children breakfast. The little things are affecting me more than they should. But my babies are 7 months old, too late for PND to start surely?

I have no family support either. the gp said it was reactive.

we since have a babysitter and having something to look forward to has really helped. cannot imagine how hard seven month old twins and a toddler is. dh does need to cop himself on though.
