Post partum depression/extreme baby blues?

Hi all,

I had my little boy March 20th. Since then, I have been battling what is either mild depression or really bad baby blues, depending on whom you talk to.

I am taking an antidepressant and have started seeing a counselor. I am also trying to carve time out to be alone or take naps ( my baby still gets up 2 times a night - he is bottle fed). I exercise when I can.

I think I may be feeeling a bit better.

I just want to know if anyone else is dealing with this (or has in the past)?

Thanks,

Jen
