Feelings of guilt.... Michayla08 18 kids; California 975 posts12th Feb '13
Hi ladies. I have a 6 year old DD and we just had our DS January 4th. Ever since I had him I have had this overwhelming feeling of guilt. I have no idea why. For example everyday I drop my DD off at school and I watch her go in the classroom I have this overwhelming feeling of guilt... I just want to cry. Or when DS is in his swing awake and content I look over at him and feel guilty. Why the heck do I feel like this? It's caused a lot of my anxiety to return for some reason... Does anybody else feel like this postpartum or do I have issues lol? Tia ladies...

That could be post partum depression. Just talk to your doctor. Your hormones went from crazy high to crazy low in a matter of seconds and they are still getting back in balance. Don't be embarrassed just make a appointment with your doctor, and if your doctor is also your babies pediatrition then you can work it in around the babies appointment. Best of luck, it will be better soon!
