I’m due with my third July 4. I have been pregnant for 4 years with gaps in between but the gaps I’m suffering with ppd. How do I get my doctor to take me seriously about my ppd? I gained 100lbs after my first kid because I was suffering so bad my (old) doctor said that I “seemed happy” and that’s because I was out without my child. I feel like depression keeps me from being the mom I should be. I have a hard time caring for myself and cleaning. All my energy is put into making sure my kids needs are met. I’m nervous about being put on meds but I really feel like after I have my 3rd and last baby I want to be on something to help me.
Anyone else have any recommendations on how I can talk with my doctor and prevent the ppd from happening?
