Prayer Request

I have a horrible time post partum. After the birth of Roo Boo I had such bad PPD that I was ordered to seek care. I missed the first three months of her life, sadly. With The Boy I knew it was coming and had my MIL come care for me for a week. With BB, it's like I totally forgot that this was a part of my life.

I feel crumby. General anxiety and plain old sadness are upon me again. At least this time I don't feel like getting out of bed will kill me - that bed is simply where I must be. I've spoken with my Dr and changed my meds (upped the dosage) but it takes about a week to kick in. I hit my "week" on this coming Monday and am praying for relief.

On the advice of another PPD mom I also hit the herbal store and started taking Red Raspberry, Blue Cohosh and Ginko Biloba.

As the baby starts to fuss for me again, I must sign off. Please pray for me, my friends. I need His strength to get through this minute by minute.

Sending prayers....as many as I can. I've been there and I know how scary it can be. Hoping the meds kick in early so you can have some relief.

I hope that you are able to feel more yourself soon. You will be in my prayers.

Praying for you . . . I've been there and it's very rough. I hope the meds and herbs work.

Hang in there, mama, this too shall pass!

Consider that prayer request filled. And if I could stop by with a carrot cake in hand and boost your spirit with some girl talk I'd be there in a heartbeat.

I am praying for you and your baby and your family! I've only ever had a touch of the baby blues, but I can sympathize. I hope you get quick relief and can care for your baby and yourself, and enjoy this part of motherhood.
