They say the baby blues are common after pregnancy. I’ve never experienced that, but I know of others who have. My depression came during my pregnancy.
It was mid-September and our fall routine and schedule was in full swing. As a work-at-home, homeschooling mom of a five year old daughter and three year old son, I found myself finally over my “I want another baby” stage and happily settled in my life.
It’s funny, really. I remember talking to my mother-in-law that weekend. She’d asked me if I thought we’d have any more kids or if we were content with just two. I think I responded with something along the lines of: “I like the idea of having another baby, but I’m not sure I want the reality of it.”
