Is this PND?

Just had my second child, DS1. He was born with a white tuft of hair in the middle of his forehead. The rest of his hair is dark brown so this really stands out. The crap paediatrician took one look and after googling came up with a syndrome for him which has other side effects including hearing loss and possible retina damage. He failed his hearing test in hospital so we are waiting for an appt with the ENT clinic (he was born by C section). We have been waiting ten days now for an appt date.

I am going out of my mind with worry. I always assume the worst normally anyway and when my DD was born I worried about her and there was nothing to worry about. So this has tipped me over the edge. My parents are here with me but they are doing my head in as I feel no one understands what I am going through and I resent that. My DH is very good but when I start to cry he knows I am a lost cause.

We live in rural France, there is nothing to do all day with two young kids and we barely know anyone. My DH is going back to work tomorrow after two weeks of paternity leave and I am dreading it. We are looking to return to the UK but the job market is slow. My DH has a couple of applications in but these will take a while to even get to interview. I just want to go home.

I feel so low and cant enjoy being a new mum again. I am so upset by all this, I feel like it could be PND but I haven't had it before. I am completely exhausted by all of this.

Try not to worry & enjoy your baby! I don't know what it could be but try & chase it up & say its causing you concern! We all worry about our children like mad! My 18 month old is perfectly fine but I worry about everything! It could just be baby blues @ the mo because you've had a traumatic time! Living in a rural area probably doesn't help sad
Most of all try & RELAX! When baby sleeps take time for yourself while parents are there...hope it all works out for you in the end as it does sound like your having a difficult time smile
