. It goes away in a week or two. your mind is getting yous to the idea of this little being that you just had and have to take care of. your old life that you one new is no long going to be the same.a part of you is just said.......so long as you don't wont to Kill your self or your baby. don't wont to do no harm of any kind you are fine. if you fill something is more going on I WOULD TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR as soon as you can.

I had baby blues for about 2 weeks but if it lasts for more than 3 weeks and if you have thoughts about hurting your baby or yourself, seek help right away. Some moms develop PPD (Post-partum depression) which is more serious and should be monitored. I got really bad PPD after I had my 2nd daughter and I had to go see a doctor for awhile until I started feeling better.

The most important thing you can do for both is talk to someone you trust. Call a friend, family member or doctor for support. Honestly tell them what you are feeling so they can help you. Don't be ashamed, what is happening is common and you did nothing wrong.

I thought i would never experience PPD until after I had my 3rd child, the overwhelmed feeling consumed me. I cried constantly for nearly a week. My mother and my boyfriend's mom was too worried about me. kept asking if i wanted go to my dr. I told them no I'm fine, I haven't thought of hurting my babies (I didn't). I had a cousin who suffered PPD had killed one of her 3 kids.
