Post Partum Depression. And yes I had it really bad after both of my kids. You can have it even when they are like a year and a half. Dont feel so alone. After your baby is born sometimes you can still feel them kick inside your tummy (I did) phantom kicks. I was a single mom after both children so it made post partum really hard for me because I had pitty parties too (LOL) But I cant imagine what you are going through to have a husband and not be able to have him with you. I would encourage you to cry when you need to (its ok to cry it gives you a release) and if it helps rub your belly like your still pregnant and reminice of when your little girl was in there. If you need to go to your doctor and tell him/her whats going on and they can sometimes help. I would really avoid medication!!!! Post partum is normal and natural. But not all medications help. Some make it worse. Every day that you are preg your hormones increase slowly. After birth they decrease 50% every day. That is why you feel so nutty. Please PRAY for your husband dont worry or you will make yourself worse and your baby will pick up on it. Everytime you are worried about him just pray and ask the Lord to encumpass him with His angels and to bring him home safely. I will be praying for your family and I hope I helped a little 🙂 God Bless…….MegMarch 13, 2007 at 8:58 am #15813Mommieofchris
i had and sometimes still have those same feelings… you have to learn to cope with them.. atleast thats what ive done.. either that or decide with your partner that its time for your second childMarch 13, 2007 at 3:37 pm #15828ashleymarie07

I’m going to be the first so say ITS NOT POSTPARDUM DEPRESSION hun…its absolutly 100% normal….its a feeling of detachment w ur child…i have 2 as you know and i went through w it w both of them…the reason u feel as though u want to be preg again is bc after carrying that beautiful child in your womb for 9 mos feeling every movement every kick every hiccup now ur womb is empty and u physically have your child. its like u have lost a part of yourself and u want the wanderful movements ni your womb back…it will pass w time i promise you..:)
