four days after i gave birth, parang na feel ko na sobrang down ako. iyak lang ako ng iyak for no reason. im supposed to be happy kasi finally dumating na baby ko pero sobrang sad talaga ko. 1 month din ako nakaexperience ng ganun and i never consulted my OB about it. kahit simpleng nagllunch lang ako umiiyak ako. na experience nyo rin ba yun?

ako hindi...pero ive studied about it and it's normal...dahil lang cia sa mga raging hormones causing you to get depressed, add to the the pressure of becoming a new mom and partner! i think if anyone has that, it's better to consult a psychologist kasi some cases lead to fatal issues e..

           hi mommy andrew610 tama si sunmom its due to hormones and right its just normal to feel that way. meron kasing 3 phases when it comes to maternal adjustment yung first phase is the Taking In- mother needs predominant;mother passive and dependent. mother needs to talk about her labor and delivery experiences to integrate them into the fabric of her life, mother may need help with everyday activities as well as child care, food and sleep is important. second phase naman is Taking Hold mother begins to reassert herself, identifies own needs, especially for teaching and help with her own and baby's need, some emotional lability, may cry for no reason so mommy andrew10 your in this phase pa po. the third phase naman is Letting Go- shows patterns of lifestyle that includes new baby, mother may still feel tired and overwhelmed by responsbility and conflicting demands on her time and energies.

         Its ok din to consult a psychologist  kc when you don't overcome this phases yung sinasabi ni sunmom na could lead to fatal issues is yung Post Partum Psychosis po yun, if you could remember there are news na mga nalabas before na tumalon yung isang bagong panganak or pinatay niya yung baby na bagong panganak yan po yung nangyayari when somebody haves this psychosis kc nga nawawala sa katinuan.
           Your other alternatives naman mommy andrew is talk to your brother or sister or kng sino yung mga pwede mong makausap your mom, your dad, cousins mga pamangkin mo kc they can be a source of your support system din. And also take a rest din kc kng mas pagod ang tao minsan nagiging bugnutin din.  :D just sharing my thoughts.

hanggang kailan daw pwede magkaron ng post partum depression? 5 mos old na baby ko pero so far hindi pa naman ako nagkakaroon ng depression
Title: Re: post-partum depression
Post by: kizzia on May 30, 2008, 12:54:07 pm
            mommy renaeh mostly kc it starts to post partum blues, yung before k manganak madami ding mommies nakaka experience nito as in admitted na sa hospital tapos wait nalang for the child's delivery eh makikita mo pa iyak nang iyak.  :D pero sympre we need to support them since yung mga relatives eh hindi pwedeng maka pasok sa delivery room and it also causes exhaustion kay mommy sa studies 70% ang nakakaranas nang ganito.

             This happens usually also upon the delivery and could also occur a year later.  Infanticide is most often associated with postpartum psychotic episodes that are characterized by command hallucinations to kill the infant, but it can also occur in severe postpartum mood episodes without such specific delusions or hallucinations.  The risk of postpartum episodes with psychotic features is particularly increased for women with prior postpartum mood episodes, but elevated for those with a history of mood disorders. Once a woman has a postpartum episode with psychotic features, the risk of recurrence is 30-50% with each delivery. Researchers have suggested that rapid changes in hormone levels such as estrogen, progesterone and thyroid have a strong effect on moods

ako naman hindi ko naman na experience na umiyak becaus of no reason at all...
ang napansin ko lang, eh i'd rather be quiet nalang, or sometimes alone,parang ayoko ng too much crowd, i dont want na yung magdaldal ng magdaldal, in short parang naging serious type ako, kasi before makulit ako, bubbly , madaldal...
i dont know if this has something to do with post partum blues/depression.
or bka nag mature lang ako as a person. dahil mommy nako.

just finished crying with no reason at all, i guess i am still into this right now, post-partum depression. as in pagkatapos umiyak tingin dito sa SP forums at hinanap ang topic na ito, somehow it helps me to let it all out, alam ko dito lang ako makakapaglabas ng sama ng loob dahil ayoko naman tumingin sa baby ko while crying, mararamdaman niya na umiiyak ako, been to that on my first month umiyak baby, kasi umiiyak ako... i just cried alone tonight, with all the pressure i am experiencing right now, it's difficult to be alone and nobody here can understand me except for my baby, if only i can scream, i would, just to let it all out...  i thought i overcome post-partum depression, di pa pala. i'm on my 6th month now but still, sometimes i pity myself... i can say i am officially tired and i need a break, sana lang meron magic na mawala yung emotional and physical  pressure kahit 1 day lang... please...  :'(

thanks for the time spent reading this....

hi mommy claire! true lahat sinabi ng mga mommies dito...nagka post partum depression din ako at ganyan na ganyan din naramdaman ko pero na overcome ko din. ob ko pa nga nagsabi na PPD nga daw pinagdadaanan ko. napansin niya siguro...kailangan mo talaga ng support system. & you have to tell them para aware sila. or talk to a psychologist then isama mo bestfriend mo or somebody na mapagkakatiwalaan mo. para may nakakaintindi sa pinagdadaanan mo.. .

thanks youngmom, kalix and rjsmom, thanks talaga sa inyong lahat. last night i tried to relax myself kahit sandali lang, after doing everything medyo umupo lang ako, tahimik, hinga ng malalim, realizing things and isipin nalang yung beautiful things na nagyari sa buhay ko lalo na yung pagdating ni baby ko, somehow it helped.

pressured ako sa lahat ng work dito sa bahay kasi pinaalis ko yung helper namin kasi mas lalo yata nadadagdagan yung depression ko. then kapag bibisita naman yung mommy ko sobrang dami pa sinasabi dapat ganito, dapat ganyan and sa sobrang dami ng adjustments di ko alam kung ano dapat ang unahin, ang alam ko lang dapat i-prioritize si baby ko then the household chores, minsan feeling ko bad ako kasi di ko naappreciate yung pagbisita ng mommy ko, nsasagot ko pa minsan kaya nagi-guilty ako, dahil alam kong mali, i guess i got a shorter patience now, stressed kasi, kulang pa sa tulog, tapos medyo nainis pa ako pati yung pag internet ko pinansin eh eto nalang yung sariling libangan ko... hayyy... ang bilis ko mainis, tapos wala ako makausap, yung bf ko, dad ng baby ko, nasa abroad laging busy at syempre minsan ayoko ng sabihan ng mga depressions ko, nagtatrabaho na yung tao at gusto ko puro good news if possible, pero nararamdaman naman niya kapag malungkot ako at tumwag sya, iiyak nalang ako.... hay mga sis... hirap pala, this is a very big turn in my life... i really appreciate your replies... thanks again

youngmom, since lapit lang tayo, let's have a cup of coffee, kasama kiddos natin, para mas masaya at malimutan yung depressions ko, thanks for the invite po, see you soon, PM ko cp ko. thanks

Title: Re: post-partum depression
Post by: kalix on July 11, 2008, 05:30:50 pm
hi claire! how r u na? :)...

nakaka affect talaga yan pag wala c hubby/partner, yung responsibilities natin sa baby, adjustment natin being a mom (imagine from single tapos may isang bulilit tayong aalagaan),+pressure from work, +constant nagging ng family natin, +physical pain (kung may nararamdaman man tayo) etc... kaya naaapektuhan pati attitude natin & relationships with our loved ones...

just blurt it out.don't try to suppress. mas mahirap yan...

Title: Re: post-partum depression
Post by: kalix on July 18, 2008, 04:24:17 pm
i think, if the feeling stays for a week (only) it is what you call "baby blues". but if for a longer period of time that's PPD (and it can happen anytime within the first year after childbirth). Though the signs & symptoms are almost the same... :)

Nobody told me about this except after I gave birth last June 7.  On the first week, I felt sooo bad, emergency CS pa man din ako so it was doubly difficult for me, physically and mentally, even emotionally.  I couldn't move around like I used to, considering that para akong kiti-kiti nung preggy ako kasi I love doing household chores, etc.  Biglang after birth, bawal maligo kasi nga operada ako... at bagong panganak, baka daw mabinat, etc.  And it was so hot in my room... Sanay pa naman ako na laging naliligo. Pati ulo ako ang daling uminit.

Di ko agad maalagaan si baby kasi masakit ang katawan ko I'm physically exhausted... I lost appetite pati.  Lahat sila gusto kong awayin and I don't know what I want.  The only time I'm happy is when my hubby is around.  Pag nga wala siya, napa-praning ako kahit eversince naman good boy talaga siya. 

I had to pray a lot to get over it.  Kawawa naman kasi the people around me kung di ko lalabanan.  Pati baby ko ayoko maramdaman niya yung negative feelings ko.  Breastfeeding pa naman ako... Hirap talaga... Last night, medyo iyak na naman ako.  Buti na lang my mom takes care of the baby when I can't.  Hopefully, mawala na talaga to eventually.

me naman, di ko alam if PPD yung na-feel ko yung bagong panganak pa ako (thru CS)...wala si husband kz seaman and the persons i have at that time are my super mabait na nanay (even my husband and SIL said na ang nanay ko ang pinakamabait na MIL), my brother and SIL kaya parang di ako nahirapan at parang di naman nalulungkot pero nung nagka-colic na si baby (colic baby si jana til  her 3rd month), start ng cry ng 6pm at stop ng 10pm gabi-gabi...grabe, di ko na alam ang gagawin, pag cry na baby ko, cry cry na rin ako..text ko agad husband ko para mag-call at wala rin akong sasabihin sa husband ko kundi cry lang...kaya pag cry na si jana, kukunin na sya ng mader ko...tapos parang nagkaroon ako ng nerbyos, pag magsi-6pm na, kakabahan na ko kz mag-start na naman si jana ng cry...pag makarinig ako ng cry niya, iba ang napi-feel ko sa dibdib ko at parang nagsi-shake ang tuhod ko...nawala yon ng di na si jana kabagin pero these days naman, napansin ko even my husband, madali akong hingalin...he even insisted na magpapa-check up na...inisip ko baka effect pa rin to nong nerbyos ko dati...

sa akin din that happened. after giving birth via C/S nung nakauwi na kami sa haws palagi akong umiiyak. db dapat masaya ang feeling natin kasi lumabas na si baby pero ako iba, parang i felt so bad na hindi ako makatulog ng deretso laging may istorbo parang feeling ko naging pabigat si baby sakin and since wala akong mapagbalingan kay hubby ako laging galit. parang i felt so helpless and disappointed kasi di ako makabangon masyado and i want to rest pero lagi namang iyak si baby. my husband was thinking i have PPD pero after siguro mga 2 weeks nawala din un.

cassie, do you have somebody in your home to assist u in taking care of the baby and to talk to? sana meron para maka-rest ka, one of the factors that contributes depression is yong pagod lalo na 1st time mom...at maganda rin yong may kasama ka para may makakausap ka, mahirap pag walang kausap to divert your attention from loneliness/empty feelings...

I suffered PPD the first two weeks after I gave birth - and I swear, kawawa MIL ko sa akin, eh kasi naman she should know better than pester me di ba? Hindi eh, puro puna, puro dapat ganito ganyan, eto dapat, wag yan! Umiiyak na lang ako, super iyak sa husband ko kasi sabi ko bakit ganyan mommy mo?

Ayun, pinauwi na siya ni hubby kasi she wasn't helping ease the situation at all.

sis were u able to try white noise..yung shusing sound, hair dryer sound or tulo ng tubig mula s gripo..nung c baby n feeling ko colic n sya ng isang araw ginawa ko un..ngreserch kc ako s youtube buntis p lang ako kc nttkot ako d ko alam ang ggwin pg iiyak n ang baby..efective sya..
ang hirap nga ng nging situation mo.ako dn nging nerbyosa n nung ngkaanak kunting kalabog lang buhat ko n agad c baby.

cassie, do you have somebody in your home to assist u in taking care of the baby and to talk to? sana meron para maka-rest ka, one of the factors that contributes depression is yong pagod lalo na 1st time mom...at maganda rin yong may kasama ka para may makakausap ka, mahirap pag walang kausap to divert your attention from loneliness/empty feelings...

hi sis uhm la po ako kasama sa bahay...... lagi kami lang ni baby si hubby kasi dami inaasikaso now.... uhm sinabi ko kay hubby kung ano nangyayari sakin (PPD)....actually nung buntis ako sinabi ko na sa kanya yung about sa PPD para sabi ko after ko manganak if ever na mangyari sakin yun eh aware na sya.. so nung sinabi ko sa kanya na im experiencing ppd ayun he always text and call me pag nasa labas sya, lagi niya kami chinecheck ni baby.... binili din na ko ng laptop para daw malibang ako.... minsan naiiyak pa rin ako pero nilalabanan ko talaga ang ginagawa ko is tinatawagan ko sya kahit la kami pinaguusapan basta my makausap ako....kagabi nagdecide sya na mgbakasyon kami kahit 2days lang para daw ma iba naman environment ko at malibang naman daw ako... so far hindi na ko masyado umiiyak... im happy na meron akong asawang naiintindihan ako..... sana mawala na tong PPD ko.....

experiencing PPD is normal basta kaya mong i-overcome.  just get enough sleep, puyat is 1 of the factors that contributes PPD.  pag tulog si baby, sabayan mo rin. kaya mo yan, mahirap maging nanay pero masarap.

dont think that way laarni, you will find a lot of good mommies and daddies as well here, like me im also a newbie here, medyo nangungulit lang but productive naman,

to what happen to you, you have to visit your doctor or visit a psychiatrist, i heard a situation like that before, some say it's normal, and some say it's doesnt, so to make it safe, go visita doctor....

take care always mommy laarni..

sis, hindi me masyado nakaranas ng ppd kaya hindi ako kaagad maka-reply.

may mga kasama ba you sa house na makakausap? all i know kasi that it really helps kung may makausap ka para mailabas mo yung sama ng loob mo and other concerns. yan kasi yung nangyari sa case ng aunt ko, parang feeling niya walang nagaalaga and namamansin. pero lilipas din daw yun. so just hang on and try to be more open about your feelings.

with regards to you being new, lahat kami nagdaan sa pagiging newbie. nagkataon lang na wala masyadong nag oonline lately kasi malamang nasa out of town vacations sila. ;D like today 30 lang yung mga nag-online and normally umaabot sa at least 60 per day. ;D

ako din sis never experience PPD... pero ang sabi ng SIL ko talking to friends about what you feel is a big help. Or keep a journal where you can pour out your thoughts and feelings. try mo din to pamper your self like a new hair cut, manicure/pedicure, massage, facial etc. go out and shop for your self. Prayers also works.

AS for being a newbie tama si mommy jojo lahat tayo dumadaan dyan. Holiday kc sis eh most of the moms walang work or out of town so wala masyadong nag lolog-in.

hi sis, i experienced that too.. hndi ko na msyado maalala what exactly made it go away pro im sure my baby played a big role in helping me get through it..

pro tama rin si cheiz, talking to friends will make you feel better. based rin sa nabasa ko, ppd really happens.. minsan nga even happy moms with supportive families can experience that. bsta dont let it get the best of you.. pag sobra na, hindi na un healthy sympre.. fight it as mch as u can.. i dont know exactly how but letting it out is one way.. and most of all, pray! prayers work.. all the time!  :)

I gave birth more than a week ago, and I've spent the last few days at home alone with my baby.

Tama kayo don, malaking factor yung presence ng husband. Kasi everyday I look forward to evenings with my husband e. But since we have no helper (maid ng MIL ko naghahatid ng food and naglilinis dito lunchtime pero umuuwi din after niya gawin yung chores), pagod si husband every night (sterilizing the bottles, cleaning up after dinner, laba ng cloth diapers). Wala na rin time for us to bond like we used to, before I gave birth.

Kaya yon, iyak ako ng iyak. I miss him so much e. Kahit ba simple things like watching DVDs together super malaking bagay na sa akin. Tapos pagnandito sya gusto ko lagi akong naka yakap sa kanya. Buti nalang may weekends. Pero eto, Monday nanaman, back to work nanaman si hubby. Hay. Sana ma-overcome ko ito. I never really had a problem spending time alone pero mas nakakapagod ito, breastfeeding, palit diapers etc naka-stand by ako for baby 24/7.

And I agree na malaking factor yung puyat. Pagod ka na nga maghapon tapos yung tulog mo kulang rin. Hay. Sana tapos na yung mga iyak iyak ko na yan. Sana baby blues lang ito, hindi PPD.

Hay, goodluck sa inyo mga mommies. Ganito pala ang feeling...

ey mom tangytomato, I've been there too, pero na-overcome ko naman with prayers and positive thoughts, I'm alone too taking care of my baby, my husband works abroad, so mahirap talaga but when I realized I was not alone kasi kasama ko si baby ko, the whole day kami naglalaro, kapag tulog sya nun, tulog din ako, yung chores kapag medyo nakabawi na ako ng tulog nagagawa ko naman, I was breastfeeding for almost 2 months but then nagkaproblem yung breast ko kaya nag-stop ako, so wash and sterilize kona bottles niya, katamad hehe pero iniisip ko lang yung happy face na nakikita ko everytime tumingin sa baby ko, iniisip ko narin yung presence ng husband ko sa kanya, totoo talaga, mawawala ang pagod mo  ;) Congrats and enjoy every minute of being a mother  ;) kaya mo yan... hug kita xxx  :)

Post by: tangytomato on January 29, 2009, 12:12:20 pm
Thanks sa mga responses ninyo. :-)

I've kept myself busy ever since. It helped that I made a "schedule" for myself. Kasi before giving birth may mga routine tayo di ba, we were so in control of our time. Kaya yon, I made a list of things that I have to do everyday, para hindi naman ako maloka. Here it goes:

7am - morning sun for baby
830am - mommy's breakfast, Clusivol drops for baby
9am - sponge bath for baby (every other day)/clean umbilical cord
10am - bath time for mommy
12 noon - mommy's lunch
3pm - clean baby's umbilical cord
7pm - mommy's dinner
9pm - clean baby's umbilical cord, change to disposable diapers
10pm - mommy to get ready for bed; spend time with husband (if possible)

Then all the time in between are either for breastfeeding or changing the cloth diaper (or napping). If may extra time like now lalo na pag tulog si baby, mag internet ako, basa book, watch DVD sa laptop, chat sandali sa phone, etc. Syempre flexible yung schedule ko kasi hindi naman perfect lahat, may mga delays and unexpected circumstances. Pero at least nagkaron ng structure yung day ko.

Kung meron special things that I have to do (e.g. order drinking water, may utos sa maid, etc) I list them down para hindi cluttered ang isip ko. Kasi kung hindi ko isulat, iisipin ko lang ng iisipin tapos parang cycle lang yung mga iniisip ko (parang kinukulit ko yung sarili ko na madami akong dapat tandaan, which is talagang nakakapagod and nakakaloka). Hay.

In short, niloloko or nililibang ko nalang ang sarili ko hehe. Kasi naman nung inuwi namin si baby feeling ko nawalan ako ng control sa buhay ko, feeling ko naging milk machine and professional diaper changer ako.

Kaya yon. Nakatulong sa akin ang paper and pen. Hay. Sana tama itong ginagawa ko hehe at hindi na ako maloka!!! So far ilang days naman akong ok. :-)

siguro what we can do is to always have someone to talk to..mahirap kc pag nag-iisa, kung ano-ano naiisip...lalo't overwhelmed pa sa bagong responsibilities of being a mom

when i gave birth to my first child din, nagka-PPD din ako...naiiwan ako mag-isa sa taas ng house, dahil andaming bawal pag kapapanganak..lalo't bantay ng lola ko...bawal akyat baba sa stairs, bawal magpahangin, so for 1 month andun lang ako sa taas...eh bawal pa daw manood ng tv...so ako naman siempre bored...naiiwan kami ng baby ko sa taas ng bahay, eh di pa naman nagre-react yun...tapos biglang magpoopoo, iihi, tapos kapapalit mo lang ayan na naman..natataranta ka na biglang iiyak si baby...tapos one time si hubby, namiss yata magvolleyball..asus! nagalit ako sa kanya, kc wala akong kasama sa hahaha...nisara ko ang door at siguro mga 1 hour lahat sila nagkakatukan na at nakikiusap na open ko door...nag-aalala na kc sila ano na nangyayari samin ni baby...pero ako, tahimik lang...iyak lang ako ng iyak sa loob...di ko sila hehe...para akong praning!

naku, dapat wag ka mapipikon kay baby...nafi-feel nila yan...i know naman na love mo sya...pero merong emotions na hindi ma-control no? well, i hope nga mawala rin soon

super pinipigilan ko nga eh and i keep telling him i love him and i kiss him all the time.. nakaka touch naman din kasi when he hears my voice, he stops crying pero ewan ganun padin pakiramdam ko.. siguro nga kasi at this point, i feel helpless.. sanay ako may work, i make my own money pero now, i had to ask hubby pag may bibilin ako and honestly, i dont like doing it..

naisip ko nga maghanap na ng work.. kaya lang gusto ko din talga maging hands on kay baby ayoko kasi lumaki sa yaya.. mga pamangkin ko kasi, sa yaya lumaki ayun. .walang takot sa mommy nila.. kasi palagi nasa work. mas nakikinig pa sakin at k mama since kami palagi kasama sa bahay..

hanggang kelan kaya tong akin??  :'(

more than one month na since i gave birth. minsan pag naiisip ko na parang prisoner ako (walang katapusang cycle ng palit diapers/lampin, magpa-breastfeed, magpa-calm ng baby etc), sinasabi ko nalang sa sarili ko:

"pag around 8 months na si baby isasakay ko sya sa sling at isasama ko sya sa grocery"

medyo nacocomfort ako ako sa thought na yon kasi may sense of being "normal", i mean, makaka labas ako ng bahay gaya ng dati (lakwachera ako hehe). kasi ngayon ultimo meals ko interrupted e, kasi maya maya kailangan asikasuhin si baby (unless he's in deep sleep)

ako naman, Cs ako when i gave birth so when it was time to change the dressing of the wound, i asked hubby to do it kasi sabi nga nila yung husband daw dapat magpalit. i was using the plastic one, yung parang tape/glad wrap. eh di alam ni hubby how to use it since he was out of the room when the doctor showed us to change dressing, so he was so frustrated on how to place it in the wound, nasayang nga mga 2 (eh mahal un). iyak na ako ng iyak kasi galit na sya keso sayang yung 2 na nagamit. after nagintervene si yaya and napalitan na yung dressing ko. biglang kinuha ko wallet ko tpos binigay ko sa kanya pera tapos sabi ko eto pamalit dun sa nasyang.

nung 1st week ko pa lang sobrang pagod na pagod ako, na-cs ako tpos agad umuwi na, ako nag-alaga ng baby kaagad, yung yaya sa morning lang pinapaliguan yung baby. 1 time sobrang iyak ko talaga kasi pagod na pagod na talaga ako.

mahirap din kung nagcocolic ang baby.., feeling mo inadequate ka. you have the feeling na when you hold your baby she'll feel safe and she'll cry no more, di pala, minsan sabay pa kyo iyak.

ngayon ok na. im back to work. i dont give myself a hard time and be a supermom, nagpapatulong na ako sa yaya. lumalabas na rin kami ni hubby and friends kahit padinner dinner or coffee lang

normal delivery ako with my two babies.. since i handle everything on my own (single mom kasi) feeling ko pinagsakluban ako ng langit at lupa.. i mean my parents were there to help watch the baby if i need to do something pero still ako lahat gumagawa.. adding to it pa is when i got back to work after 2 weeks of giving birth kasi i would not be able to feed my child without working :(

anyway, for my eldest i vented out on my ex-bf (the god father of my eldest).. grabe super thankful ako sa kanya kasi he just listened to me vent out cry, shout at him, at times blame him, and all... my mom also gave me a time out.. my eldest was only 3 months old when my mom asked me to go on a time-out with my friends.. so i went to puerto galera with my co-teachers.. hala ayun unang gabi pa lang i was crying talaga kasi i miss my baby.. from then on i promised myself i will never go out of town without her in tow..

lastly for my youngest.. my post partum depression was observed by my eldest.. she would often catch me crying and talking to her little sister while breastfeeding and crying at the same time.. she would often ask me "mommy painful? (referring to me breastfeeding)"... that would make me smile and would assure her that mommy is ok. for my youngest, my way of recovering post partum is crying, looking into the stars, talking to my kumares/friends, and have bonding time with my girls... syempre with God's grace i survived it and is continuously surviving being a single mom :)

I guess even if we get all the help we can, it doesn't take the pressure off of us mommies.. i dont have our own yaya kasi meron na 2 mom ko so paglipat nalang kami kukuha ng sarili but halos hubby ko gumagawa lahat, change diaper, paaraw k baby, hugas bottles, laundry and bili ng mga needs tapos mom ko nagpapaligo and sis ko taga bantay minsan so i can get some sleep.. pinaka hirap ko lang is during madaling araw when everyone's asleep and kami nalang ni baby sa room.. i feel selfish na nahihirapan pa ako sa ganun..

ewan ko ba.. parang feeling ko hirap na hirap ako when all the while, wala pa sa kalahati ang hirap ko compared to moms na talagang hands on sa baby.. ako breast feed and konting bantay lang k baby pag sleeping naman si hubby and swertihan naman kasi sa afternoon deep slumber palagi si Baux so kahit papano nakaka power nap kami ni hubby. pinaka hirap nalang siguro was when masakit pa tahi ko and yung masakit na breast ko from too much sucking and yet eto ako.. nag whine.. tsk nakakainis ako!!!!  :-\

i gave birth last september 2008, my first baby. around afternoon, dinala na baby sa room namin and spent the rest of the nights with us. normal naman daw talaga crybaby especially newborn pero sa sobrang lakas umiyak ng baby ko hindi namin alam kung ano gagawin. at first he will be pacified pagnagchange diaper considering isang beses pa lang umiihi. to cut the story short, dahil for several nights lagi ako nagwoworry kung meron problema kay baby nung madidischarge na kami dun na ako inatake ng nerbyos. ayoko nang umalis ng hospital hindi na ako makakain ng lunch before umalis. takot na takot ako CS kasi ako di pa makagalaw. di ko pa mapatahan baby ko. buti na lang matyaga husband ko at kaya niya pahinto kaso dagdag sa anxiety ko pa yun kasi feeling ko useless ako at di ko man lang mapatahan baby ko. me times din umiiyak ako pero sane naman at alam ko feelings or iniisip ko. i know the reasons pero un nga lang, parang nagiinvite ng kung anong sad things to think about. wala pa naman kaming kasama sa bahay non. better kung meron support group at least me kausap ka. i hope it wont happen if i'll have a second angel.

Be thankful at understanding si hubby...if you are ready na, maybe you can discuss this with  your hubby para mas lalo kang matulungan sa gawaing bahay or anything that will please you...

Cheer up ! hanap ka ng mapaglilibangan   ;)  para mabawasan ang depression... sa akin pag na-dedepressed ako alam kaaagad ni hubby na ang solution ay i-mall ako   ;D  hehe

hi mommy sheilaih, my wife experienced that for around 2 months after birth and bumalik after another 2-3 months. palagi siyang depressed na di namin alam kung bakit so we attributed it to PPD. yes mga mommy, daddy ako. anyway, i wanted her to see a psychiatrist kasi nga natatakot na ako that time pero di kami natuloy. dapat lang maging sobrang understanding and super supportive ng partner mo. minsan di siya makatulog at iyak siya ng iyak. try mo lang makipagsocialize dahan-dahan sa ibang tao para palagi ka may kausap. wife ko kasi noon ayaw lumabas at nagtatago sa tao. or to be safe consult niyo sa professionals para mas maintindihan mo yung cause. pero im sure mawawala din yan

eto mommies, my uncle danny died some fifteen years ago but to this day, remember ko pa itong kwento na ito.  He died about 10 in the mornng.  about 3 pm of the same day, a friend of his claimed he saw uncle danny sa market site at ang sabi daw sa kanya "pare, dalawin mo naman ako sa amin.  nakakamiss ka na" the friend naman said "oo, sige" nung nakauwi na yung friend, his wife told him their pareng Dann died that morning.  sagot nung guy "owws?  e kausap ko pa sa palengke kani kaninang hapon ah!" punta agad yung friend sa house nina uncle danny at sus!  muntik na na heart attack nung malamang umaga pa pala dead na si uncle danny, e hapon sila nagkita hehe.  scarry....

Mommy leigh, PPD is post partum depression. happens to some women after giving birth until the baby is about 2 years old.  Brooke Shields popularised this after coming out with a book about it which Tom Cruise criticised...most western women experience this although some asian women also have had it.

I've always wanted to have a "cry time" yung tipong wala akong gagawin kundi umiyak lang...kasi i feel that;s the only way na mai-release ko yung bigat na nararamdaman ko...

Hi angelyn, im soon to be a mommy palang, if you are bored thats normal kasi wala ka naman magawa, try to read books or watch online movies, if your praning sometimes maybe you have post partum syndrome,


Postpartum Depression - Symptoms
Postpartum blues. A certain amount of insomnia, irritability, tears, overwhelmed feelings, and mood swings are normal during the first days after childbirth. These "baby blues" usually peak around the fourth postpartum day and subside in less than 2 weeks, when hormonal changes have settled down. If you have postpartum blues after childbirth, you're not alone-more than half of women have temporary mild symptoms of depression mixed with feelings of happiness after having a baby.1

Be sure to report any feelings of postpartum blues to your doctor at your first postpartum checkup, so he or she can follow up with you.

Postpartum depression (PPD). Symptoms of postpartum depression can follow postpartum blues. They can feel like more of the same, or worse than before. Postpartum depression can also happen months after childbirth or pregnancy loss. In some cases, symptoms peak after slowly building for 3 or 4 months. Possible PPD symptoms require evaluation by a doctor.

If you have postpartum depression, you have had five or more depressive symptoms (including one of the first two listed below) for most of the past 2 weeks, including:1

Depressed mood-tearfulness, hopelessness, and feeling empty inside, with or without severe anxiety.
Loss of pleasure in either all or almost all of your daily activities.
Appetite and weight change-usually a drop in appetite and weight, but sometimes the opposite.
Sleep problems-usually trouble with sleeping, even when your baby is sleeping.
Noticeable change in how you walk and talk-usually restlessness, but sometimes sluggishness.
Extreme fatigue or loss of energy.
Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, with no reasonable cause.
Difficulty concentrating and making decisions.
Thoughts about death or suicide. Some women with PPD have fleeting, frightening thoughts of harming their babies: these thoughts tend to be fearful thoughts, rather than urges to harm.
Early treatment of PPD is important for both you and your baby. It may be helpful to make a list of postpartum depression symptoms that you can take to your doctor. Use this postpartum depression checklist (What is a PDF document?) .

Postpartum psychosis. This severe condition is most likely to affect women with bipolar disorder or a history of postpartum psychosis. Symptoms, which usually develop during the first 3 postpartum weeks (as soon as 1 to 2 days after childbirth), include:

Feeling removed from your baby, other people, and your surroundings (depersonalization).
Disturbed sleep, even when your baby is sleeping.
Extremely confused and disorganized thinking, increasing your risk of harming yourself, your baby, or another person.2
Drastically changing moods and bizarre behavior.
Extreme agitation or restlessness.
Unusual hallucinations, often involving sight, smell, hearing, or touch.
Delusional thinking that isn't based in reality.

i read this article in google. check mo kung ganyan na nga mga sintomas mo. If you have try to go back to your ob and explain to her whats happening to you she can recommend a doctor to cure your depression.

Sis i've experienced that with my eldest daughter kaya madalas nun may conflict kami ni hubby. Good thing i'm with my parents as i've requested to my husband na after my birth dun muna kami sa parents ko since wala akong experience taking care of my baby i need my mom's help to guide me. Kaya na didivert yung loneliness ko kapag kasama ko sila. As a suggestion call or talk to your family or friends if your time permits for a chika chika at maalis yung feeling of loneliness or boredom mo. Natural lang yan.

God Bless!

Mommy, congrats on your second pregnancy!
Afaik, you are more likely to have another episode. Ask your OB for support regarding this. And get help before another episode sets in.

i haven't experienced post partum depression or PPD, yung usual baby blues lang like the sudden mood swings and anxieties lang (hahah normal naman ata ang mood swings sa kahit sinong babae kakapanganak lang o hindi  ;D)
 
from what i know sis, PPD doesn't only happen after the 1st pregnancy, it can occur in the succeeding pregnancies as well sabi nga kase nila due to the hormonal levels.

ganun ba sis..ngyon ko lang kase nalaman na buntis ako ulit. ang una ko agad naisip is kung babalik ang post partum depression ko with this 2nd pregnancy. pero sana wag na.. ayoko na maexperience ulit un.. 2 months ko din pingtiisan un.. at talagang ayoko na ulit maranasan pa..

according to our family doctor, usually daw pag second pregnancy na nakakaligtas na ang mommies sa ganito kase naranasan na nila..

but ofcourse i want to hear from other mommies here..

Title: can't enjoy my 2nd pregnancy
Post by: laarni06 on October 03, 2009, 09:54:00 pm
mga mommies, especially those who experienced the same thing..please help me to enjoy my 2nd pregnancy..

to be honest with you moms, this is unplanned pregnancy.. kanna ko lang nalaman na pregnant na naman ako.. my eldest is just 1 yr and 2 months old. so definitely ayoko pa talaga mgbuntis ulit.. we were just using withdrawal method, kase di ko hiyang ang mgapills..

i am thinking a lot of things now.. una na dito ang guilt na feeling ko di ko pa nga nabibigay lahat ng time, attention and needs ng panganay ko sinundan na namin agd sya ni hubby.. natatakot ako na bka umulit ang post partum depression na naranasan ko during my 1st pregnancy.. natatakot ako na another year round or two ulit ang bubunuin ko na naman..

but im not planning to do something bad to get rid of this.. i just want to hear from you moms to enlighten me and fully enjoy this.. para totally magsink in na sa utak ko na talagang magiging dalawa ang anak ko at the age of 25...
Title: Re: can't enjoy my 2nd pregnancy
Post by: mumsie_AJ on October 03, 2009, 11:06:07 pm
mommy, i can totally relate with you. our eldest was 1yr and 3mos old when i got pregnant with our 2nd baby. the initial reaction i had was the same as yours...guilt-stricken! guilty and disappointed dahil feeling ko hindi pa namen na-eenjoy fully si kuya, parang kulang pa yung time at attention na sha lang ang mundo namen tapos biglang may kasunod na pala. and to think my husband and i planned on having only one kid. sinisisi ko sarili ko for getting myself pregnant again (i wasn't taking any pills coz i was breastfeeding and i had hyperthyroid).

i allowed myself to be depressed nung una, pero eventually nawala na din kase shempre nakaka-guilty din for the 2nd baby baka akala niya di namen sha gusto. and shempre nagpray din ako kay God dahil another blessing na naman ang binigay niya sa min. sa case namen kase parang ibinigay na sha ni God talaga kase sa case ko na may hyperthyroid mahihirapan na ko magkaron ng baby pag lumampas na ko ng 30 (28 ako nung time na nabuntis ako sa 2nd baby) kaya inisip namen talagang gusto ni God may kapatid si kuya.  ;D

and now 3y.o. na si kuya and 1y.o. na si bunso...i'm happy seeing the two of them together...parang i can't imagine na hindi sila dalawa ang anak namen. don't worry sis pag nag-sink-in na ng tuluyan ang reality na preggy ka na uli magiging masaya at magaan na sa loob ang pregnancy mo kay 2nd baby. goodluck sis! ang stay healthy and safe lage!
Title: Re: can't enjoy my 2nd pregnancy
Post by: chill on October 03, 2009, 11:53:14 pm
blessing yan sis kaya tanggapin mo ng lubos. kung saken nangyari yan sobrang tuwa ko kc sis 34 na ko kaya mahirap na saken and hyperthyroid din ako. madami akong kilala na gustong gusto magkababy at nagpapagamot pa pero unfortunately wala pa rin. may purpose kc mga bagay bagay maybe you're still in denial but i know sooner than you think you'll begin to accept your situation. wag ka rin magpatalo sa depression kc walang ibang kawawa kundi kyo ng family mo. if there's anything that you wanted to talk about am just pm away kami ng mga smarties dito we will help in any way we can wag lang pera sis yan wala ako.

Thanks mommies sa reply ninyo.. i am planning to have my check up na next week to be exact na 2 months based on my LMP. yung 1st pregnancy ko kase nhirapan ako.. 1st trimester ko nconfine ako kase ngspotting ako.. i guess lucky pa rin naman ako kase bukod sa blessing ito, hindi ako masyado maselan ngayon mgbuntis...

sabi ko nga ky hubby, mgpapaschedule nalang ako for CS para naman hindi na ako mglabor.. sabi naman niya, kung yun daw ang makakapgpagaan ng loob ko sa pingbubuntis ko sige daw.. tutal last na naman to since 2 kids lang talaga ang plano namin ni hubby..inisip ko nalang din na mas mabuti rin naman ang sunod sunod na anak para isang hirap nalang sa pagpapalaki...

mommies, naexperience nyo ba na lagi kayo ndedepress tuwing manganganak kayo? ayoko na kasi talaga ulit maranasan yun eh...
Title: Re: Bumabalik ba ang Post Partum Depression sa second pregnancy?
Post by: laarni06 on October 12, 2009, 11:58:48 pm
i had my check up yesterday.. ok naman ang baby, though wala pa heartbeat.. young pa daw sabi ng OB ko. she gave me vitamins, after ko naman inumin medyo nagong ok ang feeling ko.. ok ang gising ko knna, nkapagtrabaho naman ako ng maayos... pero until now mixed emotions pa rin... pumapasok pa rin sa isip ko na baka maulit sakin ang mga nangyari nung 1st pregnancy ko.. (sana wag na) at ayoko na talaga mangyari sa akin yun ulit..

mga mommies, share naman kayo ng experiences nyo about this.. mawawala din ba tong ganitong feeling and maeenjoy ko din ang pagbubuntis ko?

mas takot ako ngayon..kesa nung una...
Title: may depression rin ba kyo?
Post by: mayNS on October 13, 2009, 05:45:00 pm
hi mommies, just gave birth last sept.29 via CS delivery.. grabe depression ko, i know its normal pero ang hirap pala ano.. umiiyak ako kc nasa room lang ako as in walang kausap kundi baby ko lang, hinahatid sa room yung food ko bfast,lunch and dinner kc di pa pwede lakad ng lakad kc nga cs, eh nasa 1st floor ang dining.. wala tlaga akong kausap,si hubby nasa work, ni magpc di pa pwede kc baka mabinat ako.

grabe mga mommies as in para akong naloloka,timing if watch ako ng tv eh ang news yung mga nasalanta ng bagyong ondoy.. ang bigat sa dibdib.. so iyak na naman ako.nadedepress din ako kc gustuhin ko man umalis ng bahay di pa pwede kc bago lang ako na-cs.   

2weeks na ngayon atleast nasanay na ako sa feeling na depress.. inaaliw ko nlang sarili ko, nakapag sp na ako, sinasama ko na ang yaya dito sa room para may makausap ako... pero di ko pa rin maiwasan umiyak ng todo..

mommies, share naman panu nyo hina-handle ang depression after giving birth.. i need lang sum1 makausap..
Title: Re: may depression rin ba kyo?
Post by: Mariel Arun on October 13, 2009, 05:49:43 pm
hi mommy. its a natural process after giving birth.

if you think you're going back to your 'most-lonely' moments try counting your blessings.

it happened to me but what i did was i acknowledged i was going through post partum..i prayed for strength and thought about the blessings i have..by these i was able to go through this.

try asking hubby for a tight hug for a confirmation of his being there, helps to know there are people who love you around you.

have a nice day.
Title: Re: may depression rin ba kyo?
Post by: mommielynne on October 14, 2009, 09:07:27 am
i experienced exactly the same thing sis.. good thing hubby knows how to deal with it (he's a psychologist)... TALK THERAPY sis is the best medicine. talk with your hubby, talk with your baby, talk with you family, or even with your yaya. i remember hubby would always tell me that i just need to talk and talk about how i feel, what im thinking, what i want, etc until i can realize for myself the core issue why i am being depressed. and of course a good support system from your family will really help a lot. goodluck sis...
Title: Re: may depression rin ba kyo?

I also had my depression back then... Good thing hubby is very supportive... He always tell me no matter what my figure is he still love me and so on... lahat ng hihi. If go to work, he always called if he can just to asked me and Jeshua... and pag-uwi niya always may pasalubong... He even bought me I pod... bawal pa kasi nun 2 weeks na manuod ng tv.. baka mabinat.. normal delivery ako... basta he pamper me nun mga times depress ako... Sis, correct just count youre blessings and spare a lot of time with your baby... kasi nun nag-work na ako... weekends nalang and gabi kami mag-kasama.

i had the same experience on my 1st pregnancy.. naexperience ko yun 2 months na after ko manganak.. normal delivery ako.. grabe naranasan ko nun, iyak ako ng iyak.. wala akong tulog lagi at di ko naaalagaan ang anak ko.. what i did is nkikipgusap ako lagi sa friends ko na naranasan din to.. saka advice lang sis, hanggat kaya mo tiisin wag ka magkukuwento sa mga tao na hindi alam ang naffeel mo kase hindi ka talaga nila maiintindihan.. iisipin talaga nila na naloloka ka...

ngdasal lang ako ng nagdasal ayun nawala nlang sya bigla... just don't entertain the negative thoughts, kase maiiyak ka talaga e.

naranasan mo rn ba yan sa unang babies mo?

im 3 months pregnant now, 2nd baby ko na to.. natatakot ako na baka maulit yung depression ko dati.. kaya ngayon palang ngdadasal na ako...

maoovercome mo rin yan sis! kaya mo yan! just pray!

Hi Claire.. i gave birth 7 months ago and experienced the same thing. Cried for hours and felt so depressed, specially when i see the stretch marks and how fat I was. Most of the time I am crying all night or I would wake up crying. I prayed a lot to overcome that and I am ok now. I was not figure conscious but I really tried to go on diet so I can feel good about myself again. Breastfeeding help alot as well coz it relaxes me. Make sure to talk to your partner about your condition or go to your OB together with your parter so he would understand you better. It might cause some strain with your relationship if he wont understand what you are going through.

I gave birth last nov 24 (11:18am) to a baby girl and named her laela. when i woke up at 3pm sa recovery room, i was so excited to get into my room and see my baby. Dinala nila ko sa room at 4:30pm. Pagdating ko sa room, everyone was so quiet, i was thinking na baka hindi lang nagkasundo mom ko and in-laws. @ 5pm everyone went out of the room to see the baby sa nursery and my mom was left inside. she asked me if there was a time na nakapag take in ako ng gamot while i was pregnant. kinabahan ako sa tanong niya and all i can answer was "why?"... nun una they were hesitant pero yung sister ko na nagsabi. my baby experience "amniotic band syndrome"... may amputations siya sa right  hand and both toes. when i heard about it sobrang iyak ko... my baby could have died inside me, they told me it was a blessing na hindi ambilical cord, leeg or body and naapektuhan yet i was sad pa din na she has a defect. Nun una kasi hindi ako naniniwala sa post partum depression and yet now, i dont know how to describe it xe i had a different experience, iba yung post partum depression na naramdaman ko. i was crying for a month. i kept blaming myself kahit na alam ko hindi ako nagkulang nun pinagbubuntis ko si laela ko. now lala is 3mos. old, nakikita ko na milestone niya. natatabunan na lungkot ko when i see her smile, and laugh. she's a healthy baby girl. hindi siya sipunin nor sakitin. kahit vaccine di sia nilalagnat. minsan nalulungkot pa din ako but as much as possible i want to surrender everything under God's control. Sbi nga sa bible "we are all beautifully and wonderfully made, created in His own likeness and image.." "and everything was planned even before you were conceived"... kung walang Diyos, i dont know how to survive this challenge i was entrusted. God has a purpose on everything and He will fulfill His promise. i cannot say i have fully accepted everything but im trying my best to understand. Siguro it0 ang purpose ni lala for me, para mas mapalapit ako sa Diyos and everything is a blessing. you may view the website about that syndrome, its a rare condition, 1:10,000 babies lang and im one of the blessed one (www.amnioticbandsyndrome.com). thank you for taking time to read my story...  :)

Post by: leeh_09 on February 22, 2010, 11:40:31 am
yes! having a baby like mine will teach you so many things in life. you would start to appreciate every small thing and iisipin mo na lahat blessing talaga and we should be happy and thankful everyday. minsan xe  na-overlooked natin mga blessings, akala natin God has left us, and when were so happy naman, nakakalimot din tayo kung minsan. it will be a hard road ahead but i will teach my daughter to be strong and confident and dont take her condition as a defect that will stop her from doing everything and become what she wants in the future. may mga kids xe na bully but its normal for every kid naman especially boys and im preparing myself to that. i just hope and pray na laela will grow up to be strong.  :)

pero sabi ng family doctor namin usually daw hindi na nauulit kase alam mo na ang feeling sa una palang, so mas magiging careful na tayo sa pangalawa..

i really have to be careful lest i suffer from this. i noticed kasi na lately pag nag-aaway kami ng husband ko i end up destroying things. the last time, i crumpled our marriage contract tapos i threw the ring he gave me last year and i don't know where it ended up. nafrufrustrate na rin ako dahil i gained so much weight during my pregnancy and i feel suspicious everytime we're not together. naiisip ko na baka nambababae na siya. catching him chatting with another girl in facebook also did not help. para na akong nababaliw sa kakaisip minsan. tapos may times na i want to slash my wrist pag galit ako. minsan di ko feel alagaan baby ko. good thing, my lola, mom and brother are here to take good care of her.  :(

i really have to be careful lest i suffer from this. i noticed kasi na lately pag nag-aaway kami ng husband ko i end up destroying things. the last time, i crumpled our marriage contract tapos i threw the ring he gave me last year and i don't know where it ended up. nafrufrustrate na rin ako dahil i gained so much weight during my pregnancy and i feel suspicious everytime we're not together. naiisip ko na baka nambababae na siya. catching him chatting with another girl in facebook also did not help. para na akong nababaliw sa kakaisip minsan. tapos may times na i want to slash my wrist pag galit ako. minsan di ko feel alagaan baby ko. good thing, my lola, mom and brother are here to take good care of her.  :(

I started having this unexplained (or at least I cant explain) condition months after I gave birth. Yes, na-depress ako. I believe I have had this postpartum depression for a year (though my injectables might have contributed more of the depression). Dagdagan pa nang mahuli ko si hubby na nakikipaglandian sa "cyber world". Whenever I am bursting out of anger, I can feel shortness of breath, followed by stiffness of my fingers or a sharp pain on my chest. The first time this happened to me (my son was only 2 months old), I blacked out and it was my hubby who told me what happened. Until now, sumusumpong pa din siya pag galit na galit na ako. From then on, I am very cautious pag nararamdaman ko na na magtitrigger siya.

Anyone who's had or might be experiencing this? Or anyone na pwedeng magrefer sa akin isang psychologist? I would really appreciate your help mommies.

^sis,

nangyari na yan sa akin. nakasakay na ako sa FX nun, dami ko dala gamit nun. tapos na-realize ko, kung aalis ako panu kung umiyak ng umiyak yung anak ko tapos di mapatahan ng mister ko. kaya ayun, umaandar na yung fx pero nagpumilit akong bumaba  :-[

minsan, you really have to let it go. release all your emotions. and you need find a friend or a relative whom you can talk to who can relate or understand what you are going through. I know mahirap pinagdadaanan mo dahil single mom ka, pero you have to be strong for your baby. get your strength from your baby and your baby will get his/her strength from you.

I am not sure kung pwede kang bumili ng mga over the counter meds to lessen depression. You have to get a prescription for that.

if you feel you cant handle it anymore, just send us PM or post your messages here. dami naman naka-online araw araw. Get yourself a hobby din, read bible pages or recite Psalm 91. You'll feel better afterwards. Wag kay baby mo ibuhos ang emotions mo. sensitive ang mga babies sa nararamdaman ng mga nanay.  :)

Ako naman, parehong may post partum depression ako sa 2 anak ko. yun sa eldest talagang feel ko umiyak konting bagay lang napaka sensitive ko, pero nawala din agad. iba naman sa 2nd ko, yung feeling of depression talaga na biglang nararamdaan ko na lang especially pa nagsimula akong mag breast feed, biglang parang may lungkot na bumabalot sa akin. ayoko ng ganoong pakiramdam. pero unti unti din nawala.

Everyone's baby blues manifests differently. Mine kind of felt like PMS--for an extended period of time. Same ugly, bloated feeling, same snappy temper, same desire to be alone. The difference was that I resented my husband for not taking care of me. I felt like I was giving 1 million percent to my baby and no one was looking after me. I felt neglected. Day by day it got better. I talked it out with my hubby and also made sure I pampered myself every day-- candle lit shower, nice lotion, aromatherapy--something to make me relax and feel human again. What a ride!

part II po hehe (cenxa mahaba po pero update lang po uli)

kinailangan na ata akong ipaconsult sa specialty doctor sa case ko,kasi 1 month na ako halos di natutulog,takot lumabas,di ako nakakakilala nang tao,hallucinations madami kaya takot akong lumabas at mag isa parati,umiiyak ako pag nakikita ko anak ko,ayaw kong kargahin anak ko...

una humingi nang advice lang ang mother ko sa kilala nyang pedia sa pamangkin ko,ang gamot lang talaga umuwi ang ama nang anak ko sa amin kahit 1 day para kausapin lang ako,so hindi po nadala kay naging worst na ata ako super payat na payat ako kasi di ako mapilit kumain na at matulog (di po talaga ako makatulog kahit anong gawin ko!) natakot na mother ko kaya forward talaga ako sa magaling na doc. naconfined ako isang buwan mahigit  madaming counselling sa akin,gamutan,exercise pa,activities etc para lagn bumalik ako sa dati (kasi emotionally disturb daw po ako).

sabi po angn doc ko ako daw sa lahat nang naging patient nila kahit sa mother niya,ako ang pinakamabilis makarecover (tuwa nang doc ko) siguro sa environment mo kasi may kumakausap sau,nabibigyan ka nang pagpapahalaga at lastly sa mga gamutan kasi kung wala lahat po un matagal na akong wala sa mundo.Naranasan ko din na tatalon ako from 5th floor sa hospital nong naconfine ako sa isa pang hos sa province namin (gusto ko lang tumakas non,ang paningin ko 2 floors lang ang tatalunin ko,mabuti nakita ako nang auntie ko,2 nurses pang mga lalake ang kumuha sa akin,sobrang lakas ko pa daw kahit di ako nagkakain,tanda ko 4 na nurse na lalake hahwak pa sa akin para injection na sa pang pakalma sa akin,kaya kong pumiglas sa 2 nurse na lalake (worst talaga naaalala ko  na naman).gang sa ok na ako sa doc na specialty talaga sa mga case ko.pero di naako yung dati alam ko,kasi for lifetime na daw ako magtatake nang gamot para sa mood swings ko dahil may tendency pang bumalik yung ganung case ko.pero sa awa nang dios at dasal ko para sa anak ko mga alternatives na lang sa depression ang take ko po. (semsya na po sobrang haba na po ito.) ako ata ang pinakaworst sa lahat  :-\ :-\ :( :(

             This happens usually also upon the delivery and could also occur a year later.  Infanticide is most often associated with postpartum psychotic episodes that are characterized by command hallucinations to kill the infant, but it can also occur in severe postpartum mood episodes without such specific delusions or hallucinations.  The risk of postpartum episodes with psychotic features is particularly increased for women with prior postpartum mood episodes, but elevated for those with a history of mood disorders. Once a woman has a postpartum episode with psychotic features, the risk of recurrence is 30-50% with each delivery. Researchers have suggested that rapid changes in hormone levels such as estrogen, progesterone and thyroid have a strong effect on moods

                 

hello mommy kizzia,bago lang po dito at natuwa ako dahil may tread na ganito a SP,tanong ko lang po kasi may thyriod prob ako before nagkapost partum psychosis   :-[  :-[  :-[ tanong ko lang kung puwede ako magpatingin sa ob for the estrogen intake?wala po akong idea kasi di na ako bumalik sa ob ko after na naging ok na pakiramdam ko.sabi nang doc ko na psychologist for LIFE TIME na ang medication ko for all the mood swings etc. kung mangyayari pa uli un if balak kong magkaanak uli do i need to take meds right after nang delivery?di na po ako take ngaun nang meds kasi nawala na sa budget  :-[  :-[

Talk with your hubby and busy yourself. Maybe your just tired and maybe your hubby is always at work. Talk with him. If may mga bagay na ayaw u sa husband you sabihin you sa kanya and then compromise. Talking with him lang talaga maipapayo ko. Stop thinking negative things, its not healthy for the relationship. Isipin mo si baby and put your attention to ur baby.

Post by: CzarinaRoxas on May 12, 2011, 03:02:29 pm
I got pregnant last year and gave birth last December 2010. Everything was quite fine but when I was on my 5th-6th month. I am starting to feel ugly, fat, and alone. Well, those are major concerns for us women... being beautiful, well-fit and socially inclined are the things we focus on but these all stops as we get pregnant. We have to consider a lot of things like, staying at home, eat more than we usually do, and feel comfortable as time goes by. I had a hard time dealing with these negative effects. Most or should I say, all of us encounters these effects. What are the things and activities which are appropriate for pregnant women that could help to avoid these effects?  :-[
Title: Depression and How to Kill It
Post by: CzarinaRoxas on May 12, 2011, 03:58:28 pm
Most of us, women undergo with depression after giving birth. This is called postpartum depression. I, myself, did go through this. Experiencing ugliness and seeing my stretchmarks are the most depressing for me. I feel like I'm the ugliest woman. What I did was, I told everything to my husband...I shared all my kept emotions I was dealing with. Hearing your husband's words helped me out A LOT! Comforting words will help you through. Also, a nice talk with your family and friends will divert you from feeling depressed. Go out, mingle, and fix yourself. I overcame this depression, I hope this little experience of mine will help you  too.  ;) Have a wonderful life!

i gave birth nov2010 and during the course of my pregnancy, i never felt really ugly. i had always admired beautiful pregnant women, and i made sure that when i get pregnant, i will be just like them. i don't put make up on (i don't know how), i just use lip&cheek tint. i didn't really wear maternity clothes(they're too expensive and hindi talaga bagay sakin), i just used blouses that were very maluwang in the middle for my growing tummy. when i was on matleave already, i did a lot of arts and crafts to keep me busy at home. it also helped that my hubby was always there. whenever i feel a little insecure, he would always remind me that i am beautiful. :)

I'm currently 36-37weeks pregnant, and YES dumaan din ako sa stage that i felt ugly. All the dark lines started to show up, I gained weight, I had pimples, I had dark areas na sa body. I feel so so ugly, tapos nung 8th month ko pa biglang nagshow na ang stretchies,  ::) I stay at home, hubby is working from 9am-6pm so basically mag-isa lang talaga ako through out the day, i don't go out kasi nakabed rest ako. What I did to cope up with these, was to love my baby more, binuhos ko lahat ng oras ko sa unborn child ko, I was busy making notes regarding her development inside me, lagi kong iniisip na para sa kanya yung konting sacrifices ko na hindi makapagpaganda, kahit inaasar ako ni hubby, the hell i care, im a soon to be mom and im loving it. I just felt so blessed kaya deadma ako sa pangungutya, siguro di lang ako nagpatalo sa hormones at emotions ko during that time.

I'm on my 5th month and right now mas naeenjoy ko na yung feeling of being pregnant. At first, lalo na nung mga morning sickness days feeling ko ang losyang ko na. I mean, tinatamad na ako mag-ayos tapos depressed pa coz single mom ako blah..blah.. Pero I realized na hinde excuse yung pagiging preggy para maging panget tayong mga moms. Now, I must say na most of my colleagues and relatives are delighted to see na kahit preggy single mom ako + I'm carrying a baby boy mas nboost yung self-confidence ko, masiglang tignan tipong walang problema.. :) Imagine, even having a 21 weeks preggy tummy  nagawa ko pang mag 2-piece sa beach?!?hehe :) Iniisip ko kasi pag lalo ako nag-emote dahil sa changes brought by pregnancy baka madepressed lang ako, maapektuhan pa si baby. Basta ako, nagfofocus lang ako sa health ng baby ko. I'm a proud mom-to-be. ;D deadma nalang talaga ako sa sasabihin ng iba.

I lost my yaya on the same day my husband's paternal leave ended. As soon as he left for the office, I was crying like crazy. Naiisip ko lang kasi when my maternity leave ends on October, baka walang mag-aalaga sa baby ko. My husband and I live alone, our relatives are in the province. Hindi naman kami pwedeng makiusap na a relative come over to watch the yaya kasi busy din sila doon. Up to now iyak pa din ako ng iyak, parang awang awa ako sa sarili ko at sa baby ko. Sabi lang ni hubby, I should take comfort in the fact na kasama ko si baby buong araw. But that gives me very little comfort.

hi!

i dont know kung ppd nga itong nafifeel ko pero madalas akong umiyak due to 2 reasons:

1. ex ni hubby. before kasi di na talaga ako nagseselos sa kanya saka di naman na kasi sya threat but then suddenly, sobrang nagseselos ako ulit sa kanya. i keep on bringing her up tas ako rin masasaktan pag narinig ko na yung name. i keep on comparing myself sa kanya (not physically, though). kasi sya matagal niligawan, ako hindi. sya, nakasama na ng buong family ni hubby sa napakaraming out of towns, ako ni isa, wala pa. napakarami nilang pictures together sa hard disk niya tas kami wala ata. tas ayaw pa itapos ni hubby yung mga memorabilias nila na nasa drawer niya. :( saka nakailang date sila ng bongga, kami hindi kasi may kayang gumastos ng malaki ni hubby dati ngayon hindi na. sobrang nalulungkot ako. iiyak nalang ako basta marinig or makita ko name niya.

2. yung isa naman, nagsisink in na sa akin na may asawa na ako at darating yung time na lalayo ako sa family ko. eh, sobrang close kami ng family ko. parang di ako handa. :(

yun lang naman. haay. naiiyak na naman ako.  :'(

I gave birth just recently and sad to say i'm also going through this post partum depression. It has something to do with my mom. Parang feeling ko mas favorite niya yung nephew ko who is a year older to my newborn. Every time na nasa bahay ang pamangkin ko todo asikaso sya though andun naman yung brother ko to look after his son. And I, was left taking care of my baby. I'm thankful lang kasi may mga kapatid ako na ngti-take turn to help me out sa pag-aalaga. Though, pinapakita naman ni mama na mahal niya ang baby ko andun pa rin yung feeling ko na mas affectionate sya dun sa isa. Madalas pa nyang ma-mention yung name ng pamangkin ko whenever karga niya ang daughter ko or sometimes pag nagkukwentuhan lang kami.

I know i'm being unreasonable pero i can't help it.  :(  Hopefully, sana ma-overcome ko rin 'to soon.

Naku mommy zhane, parehong-pareho tau ng nae-experience.  >:(
Anyways, weird thoguh, pero I started experiencing post-partum depression 8months after giving birth when I felt I was all alone, lalo na kami lang ni baby naiiwan sa house pag pumapasok na sa work si hubby. That was the time when I felt so ugly, so useless, so tired. Hindi  ko rin agad ma-admit sa self ko that I was undergoing that kind of depression, I was making myself believe that I was okay, that everything was okay, but that worsened the case.
Kelangan positive thoughts lagi, that helped me a lot! I had a total make-over, went to the salon, to the spa...then I became better! Siguro kelangan lang ng outlet.

siguro ito din yung pinagdaanan ko.. pag-uwi namin dito sa bahay from the hospital naging monster ako :D hindi makatulog si baby sa kwarto kaya inilabas namin sa salas yung crib, tapos feeling ko nakikipag-compete ang mom ko sa pag-aalaga, pumasok ako sa kwarto at di na lumabas kahit naririnig kong umiiyak si baby, umiyak ako ng umiyak hanggang sa di ko na maidilat ang mata ko. mas lalo akong naging cry baby nung lumala ang ubo at sipon ko  di  ako makalapit kay baby sa takot na mahawa sya, kaya feeling ko talo ako sa competition.. lagi ko inaaway mom ko, nagtagal din yun ng mga 2 weeks. ngayon ok na ako, at naguilty talaga ako sa mga pinag-gagawa ko :(

2 months na si Br.. andun parin yung inis ko kapag napapansin yung paraan ko ng pagaalaga.. to tell the truth, i think my mom is the culprit and also my partner.. nasa isang bubong kasi kami and i hate the fact that two of them are barging on my 4 sides (emotional, financial, physical, moral) badtrip talaga ako!!! i have lots of ideas how to raise my baby well.. i really dont want to raise my child as my mom raise me, CAUSE i accept to myself that i am not raised well... i am so dependent, low self esteem, lagi nanggagaya...lagi nakasunod sa mas nakakatanda. i know someone here knows what i mean.. im like an idiot always second in line of my older sister. I dont trust the way my mom wants to share her thoughts because really she was not able to listen to my thoughts EVER since i was a child. she's like I AM THE BOSS and you are slave, i am the mother and you're JUST a child, i chose you to live so you must follow my steps and your opinion are not WELCOME and i think you have done a good job but its not enough you must do hard work not just good must be BEST!!! arg! grabe 2 months na 'to. kung puwede lang kung puwede ko lang i-swipe yung CC ko at magpunta ako sa hawaii kasama anak kol (its the best relaxing place i think hehe)!!! wd regards to my partner, hay nako kung ano ang karahilang problema ng babae sa lalaki un dn ang akin, hindi niya ako maintndihan :)

naku mga mommies, natural lang yan.. Sooner or later mawawala din yan..
I gave birth last Dec.1,2010 sa panganay ko thru CS.. Nun pinakita sya sakin while tinatahi ako, kinakapa ko sarili ko parang blank emotions ko.. Then 1st few days, nanibago ako, parang sino ba tong batang to bigla na lang sumulpot.. But then, nandun yung care ko sa baby ko.. and of course love ko yun! When we got home naman, dun na nagstart talaga post-partum blues ko.. Feeling ko lungkot na lungkot ako, nag-iisa, wala kasama.. Feeling ko di na ako pinapansin ng hubby ko.. Everytime din may dadalaw at kukuha sa baby ko, iniisip ko na ilalayo nila sakin so cry baby talaga ako! I cried almost everyday, kahit kung sino pa makakita.. My mom once asked me, bakit daw ako umiiyak.. I said, "Ewan ko,di ko mapigilan eh. nababaliw na ata ako."  ;D One week din ako HB sa dami nang iniiisp ko, BP ko was always 170/100 for a week! As days went by naman, unti unti nawala.. I wonder kung maulit na naman when I give birth sa second ko this year..  :-\

Hi mga mommies, I just wonder if meron din ditong nakakaexperience ng naeexperience ko right now, I don't even know if it's still part of PPD pero after ko kasi manganak sa youngest ko a month ago, I started to become very much jealous dito sa particular x ng hubby ko na wala namang ginagawa. Basta bigla nalang inis na inis ako sa kanya and ayoko na ng ganitong feeling :(

just want to sahre mine mga sisses :)

i gave birth last Nov2011, at grabe 2weeks akong nagiiiyak everytime papa gabi na. yes , very timely talaga yung sadness ko that time. in denial pa ko nung una na PPD na nga yung naffeel ko. ayoko ng madilim kasi feeling ko super kawawa ako. palagi ko lang karga si bagets while nag ccry me a river ako :D feeling ko inapi ako. kahit full support naman ang family ko at mga in-laws ko. tapos wala akong gana kumain , ayoko manood ng tv, ayoko mag laptop, ayoko magbasa. then sabi nung mga friends ko, labanan ko daw. kasi baka matuluyan ako. kaya kahit ipinagbabawal pa ng matatanda dahil baka mabinat daw ako, e nag laptop na ko. nagbasa ako at nanood ng tv, pinilit ko kumain. pinapalitan ko yung ilaw namin sa kwarto nung pinaka maliwanag. :D after a month , totally recovered na ko sa post partum blues.

kaya for all the mommies out there na nakaka feel ng unexplainable sadness, nako labanan nyo yan habang maaga. because it will lead to post partum psychosis, syempre ayaw natin yon diba? divert your attention sa mga bagay na makakapagpalibang sa inyo :) goodluck!

nung una nakakatuwa at may baby sa house pero dumadating talaga yung panahon na nakakaramdam ka ng lungkot parang mixed emotions, masaya dahil sa new baby pero may lungkot factor di ko rin alam kung saan galing...siguro dahil sa mababawasan na ang paglabas labas mo or siguro yung figure mo nagbago na or minsan pag di supportive si hubby nakakaramdam ka ng loneliness lalo na pag nasa work sya at kaw nasa bahay though like me may work ako pero iba naman ang linya ko kaya kahit sa house may mga business pa rin akong inaasikaso....nadivert ko naman eventually yung sadness dahil naging busy sa work at sa pagtitig ko kay baby......kasi sobrang happy ako pag nakikita ko sya...parang walang kapalit yung mga moments na naiiwan sa isip ko yung mukha ni baby kahit kasama ko naman sya lage kasi pag lumaki na sya mamimiss ko yung face niya na sobrang innocent...

I think I suffered din from PPD. It lasted for so long. 6months na ata baby ko parang iba pa rin kinikilos ko. I had a vey sensitive pregnancy and my pregnancy was unplanned. So ang transition mahirap from a happy go lucky me to being a mom na 24hrs and 7days a week nkakulong sa bahay with no helpers. Kapag nakikita ko asawa ko inis na inis ako sa kanya. Bwisit na bwisit ako sa pagmumukha niya. Gusto ko kapag dating niya ng bahay after work siya na ang mgalaga sa anak namin at ako matutulog which is I know hindi puwede dahil ngbbreastfeed ako and ofcourse I know pagod din siya sa work. Kapag nakikita ko siya tulog ako gising sobrang inis ko at naiiyak ako. Hindi ko makuha maging sweet sa baby namin. Parang hndi ako cute na cute sa kanya. Feeling ko kawawa ako. Ang pangit ko. Parang galit na galit ako sa mundo. Little by little nababawasan tho kailangan pa umabot ng months. Mgcoconsult na sana ako sa OB ko kaya lang i was too hesitant kaya dinaan ko n lang sa dasal

naexperience ko din to...after i gave birth, my inlaws went to the US for a month-long vacation, while my parents naman are in the province so wala ako support aside from hubby na whole day nasa work din...ako and si baby lang naiiwan pero may mga helpers din but no yaya pa that time...as a first time mom talaga naman nakaka-drain, tapos sobrang daming changes na maeexperience like di ka na makalabas, feeling ko sobrang panget ko na, ni hindi makaligo ng maayos tapos puyat ka everyday...although i can say na very excited ako sa baby ko, di pa din maiwasan yung feeling na nadedepress ka na at naaawa sa sarili as if aping-api na...one time sobrang iyak ni baby ( i think mga 2-3 mos old na sya nun), di ko na alam gaagawin para mapatahan ko sya, nilapag ko na lang sa bed tapos di ko na pinansin, nakatanaw na lang ako sa window habang umiiyak din, tamang-tama naman dumating yung inlaws ko galing sa office narinig siguro iyak ni baby so kumatok sa room, what i did was turn off the light para di mapansin pag-iyak ko pero no effect..pagdating ni hubby sinabi daw ni mil na umiiyak ako hehe...di ko napigilan talaga sumbatan si hubby, sabi ko buti pa sya nakakatulog sya mahimbing, naghihilik pa samantalang ako laging puyat...after nun, gumigising na din sya sa gabi, at pagdating niya sya na nagpapatulog kay baby, minsan naaawa din ako kasi i know pagod din sya sa work...supportive naman si hubby, every weekend pag off sya from work punta kami ng mall to buy things for baby (nakakaaliw to for me ;D), pasyal then kain....later on di na din ako nalulungkot, finally naka-adjust na din ako sa life ko now as a mother na ibang-iba nung single pa ako, sobrang naeenjoy ko na si baby kahit nakakapagod pa din esp now na sobrang likot na ;)

Feeling ko nagstart na ko madepress. Dami kasi prob dito sa house.
Actually financially lang naman, kaso worried ako kasi naka-ML ako at wala sweldo for 3months.
Tapos minsan si Hubs nasisigawan ako, naiiyak ako agad. :'(
Feeling ko din ang panget ko at ang taba taba..

Kaya pag may time nag-OOL ako para mawala sadness ko.. yoko kasi madepress ng todo..

Naexperience ko din yang ganyang pakiramdam, sa 1st baby ko, siguro mga 2 weeks after ko manganak, sobrang lungkot ko, yung tipong nag uusap usap lang kami ng mga cousins ko tapos biglang maiiyak ako ng walang karason rason, gusto kong pigilan pero talagang naiiyak ako without any reason, then one time im with hubby, nood kami ng wow mali, eh diba nakakatawa yun? Gosh para akong tan** natatawa ako sa palabas at the same time umiiyak ako! Ewan ko, ang kulit talaga, tapos andun yung feeling na gusto mo lagi kasama si hubby, na ayaw mo syang mawala sa tabi mo at sobrang sweet, kalurky talaga magkaPPD, buti sa bunso ko hindi ko na sya naexperience, kasi may knowledge na ko and experience about it so nalabanan ko na sya, medyo happy happy ako with family and friends and wag masyad0ng mag isip ng nega, only positive thoughts! =)

Hi,

I really need help.  I think I have PPD.  5 and a half months ago, I gave birth prematurely.  My baby spent 5 weeks in the hospital but never during those times did I feel any form of depression.  My partner and I even grew closer because of the challenges during that time.

Recently, I noticed that I totally lost interest in sex.  Of course my partner was disappointed and sometimes upset about it.  But I really didn't have any sex drive up to now.  I also noticed that I feel alone and started to be distant from my partner and I constantly cry for no reason at all.  I have NEVER thought about hurting my baby or my partner but I wish that I am dead so that I don't feel this way.  I also constantly feel tired and whenever I sleep, it's always shallow.  I suffered from anxiety disorder before (about 5yrs ago) and took medication and therapy. I can't take any medication now because I am 2 month pregnany but my partner would like to drag me into therapy again.  Would anyone recommend a therapist in the QC area?

I've been pregnant thrice and I've experienced PPD on all those three. I gave birth to 2 boys and then I had a miscarriage during my third pregnancy. The worst PDD is after my second kid. Buti na lang my husband stayed with me. Sobrang galit and depressed ako nun. As in konting mistake lang niya, hinahamon ko na siya ng hiwalayan. I even asked him to leave our house a couple of times. Buti na lang before I gave birth, I already warned and reminded him about PDD so medyo ini-expect na niya yung changes. Plus my parents kept reminding him as well that its just post-partum blues. Anyway. after a few months, everything went back into normal. Kung noon everyday kami nag-aaway. Ngayon once in a blue moon na lang. In fact, a few days ago - he remarked "hindi na tayo nag-aaway no?!".

Hi mommies!!

Share ko lang po.
Ako naman after giving birth, ang napansin ko naging serious type of person ako,
parang nagmature talaga ako. Before kasi suer kulet ko and bubbly, puro tawa
pero now parang nahihirapan na ko makipagkulitan. Even nung magmeet kami ng mga friends ko
na kakulitan ko talaga, parang di ko na magawang makipagkulitan sa kanila.

Ewan  ko ba. anong nangyari sa kin. Tingin nyo mommies, what im going through is normal?
Please advise.. Thank you so much mommies!  :)

Haayy.. i need help.. 8 months na baby ko pero parang may mali sakin. Nung nanganak ako ang dali kong mairitA at nawalan ng gana sa sex.  Parating partner ko ang nababalingan ko, konting mali lang niya o may di ko gustong ginawa niya nagagalit na ako. Feeling ko ako lang ang gumagawa o nag aalaga sa baby namin. Lalo na pag ako nag aalaga tapos makikita ko nag ca candy crush yan nako magdadabog na ko kasi di man lang maisip na tulungan ako. Tinetext ko si mama tungkol sa nafefeel ko tapos sasabihin ng partnerbko kung ano ano daw tinetxt ko. Hindi sya supportive sa mga gantong bagay. Hyper baby ko tapos muntik ko ng mapalo sa kulit, butit napigilan ko. Madali akong magalit. Di ko alam kung PPD to o PPSS.

Aware ako na I'm experiencing PPD, but I can say na I have the ability to control my feelings, sometimes. Pero kapag late night and I feel like crying, iiyak ako talaga :'( Pero after ko mag drama will just say to myself na, "Tomorrow is another day." :D

Kapag naman naiinis ako sa partner ko >:( imbis na mag focus ako sa inis ko, lalambingin ko siya. Weird noh? Pero after ilang days, kapag nakagetover na ako sa inis ko, i-share ko sakaniya yung concern/issue ko sakaniya. At least peaceful yung usap, hindi kasagsagan ng init ng ulo :)

Sobrang dame ko insecurities na dumadaloy sa dugo ko :( Pero what I do is, ginagawa ko na lang positive yung feelings ko imbis na i-nurture ko yung negativity na nararamdaman ko.

Happy ako dahil ang partner ko naman ay sensitive kahit papano. May kusa mag alaga kay Baby kapag nakita niya sobra ang pagod ko, nag-ooffer mag linis and sterilize ng bottles, bigyan ako hugs kahit hindi ko i-request. ::) Simple acts, pero sobra ko na-aappreciate.

Mommies, sana aware tayo na meron din Paternal Postpartum Depression. Alam ko sobrang madame tayo pinagdadaanan, pero wag tayo masyado maging selfish. Isipin din naten yung partner naten ;)

@krizzia - I think everyone who went through PPD knows how you feel. PPD can also be aggravated kapag wala ka ng time at all for yourself, lalo na kung kulang na kulang ka sa tulog. Based on my experience, I was at my angriest and lowest kapag wala akong tulog and kapag physically exhausted na talaga ko. So ang ginagawa namin nun, at least once a week - my husband lets me sleep for like half the day. Kahit di na ko magpa-salon, shopping or something - 8-10 hours of  uninterrupted sleep lang ok na sakin. Especially if you have an active kid, physically draining talaga yan.
Title: Re: All About Post-Partum Depression
Post by: sopas on April 21, 2014, 02:15:33 pm
hi, pwede ba makisali? i am feeling a lot better today than the past 3 days. i have started a journal now lang. i thought i was ok until 4 days ago, when nagkasabay sabay ang masama pakiramdam ko (headache, sipon), gutom, pagod, init, at eventually galit sa hubby.

i was lucky enough to have online friends na went thru the same me since pregnancy. we were pretty close and at this time nandito na kami sa stage na birthday parties ng mga bata. we have an ongoing chat for more than 6 months na and we talked about anything under the sun. marami kami more than 10 people there in the chat. 4 days ago, i ranted what i have been going thru and no one responded for i dont know, almost an hour. at the same time nag aaway na kaming mag asawa, and i was looking forward to read something fromthe chat man lang but none. i saw some seeing my message but no one replied. my hubby and i had a misunderstanding and sobra hurt ako. then seeing no one replied i said in the group chat. "wow. what a support group. thanks for not replying on my rant" then i left the conversation.

my misunderstanding with my husband lasted for more than 2 hours and even though he was apologising na i still cant control my feelings. i am so hungry , devastated that we haven't had a decent picture on my baby's 11th month because of our fight. then on my mind pa i was guilty and sad halo halo na when i left the chat. there were several people fromt hat chat who managed to send me private messages and apologised for not replying. when i gathered enough strength to sit up and stop crying i replied to them na "it's ok i understand that it is not your obligation to comfort me" one person replied accordingly, one didnt, and the last one blasted me out more questions and challenge like if i really understand daw i should have not leave and she felt offended kasi nag sorry na daw sya and isipin ko daw iba mas may mabigat pa prob sa kanya. then in aminute she said kung gusto mo ikaw bumalik sa chat ako na aalis. i accidentally pressed the part to view her profile and i saw in that instant she unfriended me. i said to her "that was fast. i saw you unfriended me" then she said afterwards i unfriend na niya lahat daw and she is leaving the chat. i just replied "ok if that is your decision"

during that time sobrang kabog na dibdib ko di ko na maintindihan bakit kailangan pa niya makisabay. nagkaayos na kami ng asawa ko in a while at kumain na rin ako gutom na gutom na ko nagpapabreastfeed pa ko and not feeling well.

well that last act by a supposed friend, the unfriending part, it took a toll on me. i really dont get it until yesterday one of the people part of the chat gave me an advice na not all are real friends. most chatters kasi in the chat ang message nila is magkakaayos din kayo, magiging maayos ka. para bang lahat ako may kasalanan. nag apologise na ko sa kanila. kasi narealise ko naman yung mali sa action ko. pero yung mag unfriend, parang ang hirap naman nun. di ko alam kung tama ba i add ko sya uli. i asked her in private message why did she unfriended me and wala sya reply. one common friend said na she did it daw to make way for me. hello? how can she make way when i already get out of the way before her exit? and i already told her na it is not about her. i cant fathom why she thought that way. i even do the part to ask her directly and still no reply. i have been crying for days since that happen kasi di ko matanggap why she did it. no we are not super duper close but i consider everyone in that chat as a friend. however the eyeopener advice na "not all are real friends" may be the best answer to this.

in a way, masama rin loob ko kasi i felt like they all thought i was the only problem. like i am the problem. makes me think to be more depressed actually. most advice that i seek medical help for that one blow. i thought they knew me better after pouring out almost all of my personal life.

now i am lost in cyberspace. as a sahm, with no much mommy friends around, a first time mome whose only consolation is going thru online,  my online world is limited. i can discount the fact that it hurts me seeing that person unfriending me all over my other friends' page and even posing a status publicly within this time "how lucky she is to found mommy friends" i dont really want to think she is doing this on purpose but looks like it is.

lesson learned for me is not to pour everything without leaving for yourself. im glad some member of the chat showed me a professional or maayos na disposition sa private messages but it left me doubtness now who amongst them are really my friends. maybe time to go back to my real friends - the one really tangible and have known me for decades.

sorry sa nobela, this is my way of letting it out. i hope in time i will have peace and even to that person too. maybe it is good riddance after all.

Hello mga mommies, naka tulong sa akin to cope up with this postpartum depression, nag take ako ng Essentials and BiOmega, a friend of mine recommend niya sa akin then a week's time of taking this nag ok ang mood ko di na masyadong umiyak at happy na rin si husband kasi sa kanya ko laging napagbuntungan kapag naiinis ako at wala sa mood, kaya Natuwa siya when I took up that nutritional supplements bigla daw nag iba na yung aura ko... :)

One thing more, I always pray that God will help me to cope up with this situation that I am going through and reading the Bible and some inspirational books, it really helps .... Always think positive behind any situations :)

I was diagnosed with post partum psychosis just last july after I gave birth to my youngest..and until now, hindi ko pa din maintindihan ang sarili ko..siguro nga nababaliw na ako..dahil siguro sa dami ng pinagdaanan ko sa buhay then right after the operation..sumabog na ata talaga ako..i can hear voices..violently saying na saktan ko ang sarili ko at ang mga anak ko..this is hard..i am already seen by a psychiatrist and advised me to take anti-psychotic drugs and sleeping pills so I can relax myself..nung una, i took it, pero parang isang buong araw akong tulog at hindi ko man lang nabreastfeed yung baby ko..at paggising ko, pakiramdam ko nakalutang ako sa ere..bangag..so, i opted not to take the medication..this is hard..and i dont know when and how will i be cured..ayoko din naman maging drug dependent..i just dont want to hear those voices again..ayoko din matulog dahil super nababangungot lang ako lagi..sabi ni hubby, lagi ako tulala..minsan, nagsasalita mag-isa..i dont want to breakdown..i have lots to do for my kids..for their future..for my husband..and for my family..i was too anxious na baka mabaliw ako..if only i could disappear..i dont know really what to do.. :(

Good Day po.. just want to share my experience about dito sa PPD/PPPsychosis.. well this is for my wife though..  nagkaroon rin siya ng PPP after giving birth sa 1st child namin last year.. remember LAST YEAR.. di rin siya makatulog, makakain ng maayos, umiiyak, sobrang dami ng kinukwento sa past life niya, at minsan nanakit, at dahil dun saka by recommendation ng OB niya dinala ko siya sa Psychiatrist but since di kami ganung kaganda ang financial status kaya sa National Center for Mental Health (NCMH) kami pumunta.. alam ninyo bang sobrang depressed ako as a husband makita ko yung misis kong ganun lalung lalo na 1st baby pa namin yun.. to cut the story short, na-admit siya dun for 1 week kasi di na niya kami kilala.. after 1 week naging matino siya then pinalabas na kami sa ospital.. but she needs to take the medicine therapy for a year kasi ang sabi ng Doctor, pwedeng magreoccur yung sakit niya pag pinutol yung medicine therapy niya..

dumaan ang 5 months at umiinom pa rin siya ng gamot.. pero dahil nga sa financial crisis namin, napilitan ko ng itigil kasi naging ok na siya, nakakapasok na rin siya sa office niya nun, nagrreklamo na parati siyang inaantok dahil sa gamot, at kelangan magipon para sa pangbinyag sa baby namin..

months past until dumating yung BDay ng anak namin.. 3 days after ng BDay ng anak namin, napansin ko sa kanya na hindi siya makatulog at parating kwento ng kwento.. medyo hinayaan ko lang pero nasabi ng Nanay ko (kasama namin sa bahay) na very unusual yung kinikilos niya recently.. until na tumawag yung office niya sa akin na nakita daw nila na sumisigaw yung misis ko paglabas ng CR.. dun na ako kinabahan.. mga after 1 hr na tumawag yung office niya sa akin, nagtext yung misis ko na naging Hysterical daw siya kanina.. tapos natatakot daw siya.. lalu akong kinabahan.. dun na ako humingi ng tulong sa parents ko.. saka tinawagan yung Psychiatrist before para mapacheckup.. nung dumating kami, yung assistant niya naalala kami, biglang bumulong sa akin, "bakit hindi na kayo bumalik last time".. dun ako parang nagsisi.. sana tinuloy na lang namin yung medicine therapy ng misis ko.. ngayon babalik kami ulit sa Psychiatrist sa monday for her checkup.. this time around susunod na ako sa payo ng doctor..

Good day po.Nung nabasa ko yung mga kuwento ninyo esp. dun sa isang husband naiiyak ako kasi alam ko kung gaano kahirap na makita ang mahal mo sa buhay na nagkakaganun.I have a sister na may PPD at first hindi namin iniintindi yung mga kuwento niya kasi akala namin tsismis lang pero nung nagkuwento siya ng mga pangbihira kuwento para medyo nag aalala na kami sa kanya until one day ayaw na niya umuwi sa bahay nila at tumira siya sa bahay ng parents ko mas  lalo naging worse ang sister ko sumisigaw at tumatakbo at ni ayaw maligo,kumain at matulog dahil may nadidinig daw siya hanggang sa dinala namin siya sa Psychiatrist nung uminom na siya medyo anging okey siya at dahil nga sa mahal ng gamot at consultation inistop ng brother in law ko yung gamot ng sister ko to think na okey na siya after 3 month she get worse sobra tapos ang ginawa ng brother in law ko bumili siya ng gamot dapat 2 klase gamot ang iinomun niya, ang ginawa niya dahil isa lang ang nabili niya dahil mahirap hanapin ang isa pinainom niya yun at dun mas lalo lumala na muntik na siya mawala samin napaiyak ako sa awa sa sister ko awa awa ako sa kalagayan niya.dinala namin siya sa hospital at need niya iadmit .Dun pinaliwanag samin ng doktor na hindi puwede itigil ang gamot habang hindi sinasabi dahil once na stop mo siya mas magiging matindi ang pagsumbong niya at yung gamot na binigay sa kanya dati ay hindi na eeffect dahil ang mas kailangan na yung mas matapang na gamot.Now kahit kapos sila sa pera continue pa din ang pagpapacheck up at pagpapagamot niya now she okey na nakakapag alaga na ng mga anak but she need pa din uminom ng gamot.

Good day po.. as for an update OK na yung misis ko though kelangan pa rin nyang uminom ng gamot.. Ang catch ngayon is she need to evaluate ng kanyang Doctor for 3 years so it means:


As for the 2nd baby pwede naman daw kaming gumawa pero it is a special challenge kasi antidepressant yung mga gamot niya which is makakasama sa brain ng baby. Recommended ng doctor niya is 4-6 years pa bago sundan pero it is still a special challenge.

At just for a moral lesson, pagsinabi ng doctor na bumalik for checkup, kelangan talagang bumalik. Hindi kasi ito parang lagnat or sipon lang pag niresetahan ng doctor, hindi na babalik pag gumaling na. Mental disorders can be can be treated, but there is no cure.

Hindi ko naman kayo tinatakot pero ganun talaga ang nature natin. Since nung unang panahon pa may mga ganitong kaso tulad ng sa misis ko..

Pero ang pinaka kelangan talaga sa may mga kaso ng katulad ng sa misis ko is moral support ng love ones niya. Hindi lang si Hubby or si baby, but yung 1st family at in-laws family. Kelangan maturuan rin sila at tanggapin ang katotohanan ng ganung sakit. Like they said, it can be treated but there's no cure but it is not lethal as long may support team sila.

Pakita natin kahit anong mangyari andun tayo para sa kanila at para maisip nila that there's nothing to worry about.

PS:
Medyo mahal talaga yung gamot pero gradually bababa yung dosage at syempre kkonti na rin yung bili ng gamot. Medyo mahapdi sa bulsa pero you need to realize na kasama na talaga yun sa budget ninyo. Just think of it, pera lang yan.. napapalitan pero yung love ones mo, matitiis ninyo bang magsuffer sa nararamdaman nila? tingin ko hinde.. :D

Yun pong nanay na nananakit na ng sanggol niya dala ng post partum depression ay dati nang may karamdaman sa pagiisip at depressed. Lumala nalang dala ng ppd. Punta po kayo sa OB ninyo na pwedeng mag reseta o maka refer ng ibang doctor na mas mabuting makakapag payo at reseta ng gamot kung may kailangan. Bihira ang taong nakakaintindi ng ppd, kahit asawa pa o kamaganak. Hindi natin sila masisisi. It would be best kung kasama mo sila sa pagpapa konsulta mo para ma educate din sila.

I have a friend who also suffered ppd tulad ng mga naranasan ng mga nagkwento dito, she hears voices din. Other than medications, she believes what truly helped her is the strong support of her family and prayer group who would hold a prayer meeting for her. Yung faith, intercession and spiritual strength.

Hi po! Bago po ako sa sp and im also a new mom. Currently struggling with PPD din po. Di ko na alam gagawin ko. Naawa na ako sa sarili ko at sa asawa ko at pati na rin sa baby namin. Di ako fully diagnosed with PPD but nagresearch ako about it and tumpak ang mga nangyayari sakin dun sa mga articles. Tanong ko lang, kasi most of the time ok naman ako pero pag may something na di ko gusto, ayun mag outburst na ako then usual na mabubuntunan ng outbursts ko ay yung asawa ko. Ayun, nag depression din siya. Pwede ba yun? Yung maging ok ka, masayahin most of the time then parang switch lang magiging iritable na tapos galit na galit na? Minsan nasosobrahan nadin akong stressed sa pag alaga ng bata, pero i try my best na di ko mahurt si baby pero minsan pumapasok siya sa utak ko. Ako lang kasi nag aalaga, wala kaming yaya pang nkita, at call center ang asawa ko so routine buhay niya. So far, super patient ng asawa ko sakin. Pero ngayon i think nagsasawa nadin siya, at parati na akong nag iisip na wala akong kwenta o walang silbi, paranoid din ako most of the time, minsan gusto ko na nga siyang iwan para lang wala na siyang problema.  Would it help if i ask my ob for medication para dito? O kelangan ba talaga therapist?
