When?

Anyone who's been through this, can you please comment? How long should I expect to feel, um, hormonal? Really sad today and it's feeling hormonal. I mean, not that it's bad to be sad. I'm just really struggling today, and I know it's only been 4 days. What can I expect? A week? Two weeks?

  1. Not sure if you read this girl's blog or not. She went through this I think around Christmas if you want to look at her old posts. Plus she seems really helpful if you wanted to contact her personally.

    Haven't been through it, I have no insight. I'm very sorry. I won't say any of the "it's nature's way" type things because I doubt they help. *hugs*

  2. I have chills thinking about how you are feeling right now. I'm sorry. :(
    For me, the worst was the first week (physically and emotionally) and then I slowly started to get better and better each week... though I think it really was about 4 weeks until I felt 'normal'.
    Click on 'Cherelli' from my blog list as well... she went through this just maybe 6 weeks ago so she'll also be able to give you some insight.

  3. Thanks Randi and Michelle. I guess I'll just have to be patient. Given my past PPD experience, I'm hyper nervous, but I suppose I'll give it a few weeks.

  5. I think that it takes awhile....and that length depends on each person. I know that it took me several weeks, maybe a month to feel like I was functioning. There were still times after that but it wasn't a constant overwhelming feeling. I am so sorry for you and Pete and all that you are going through. Big hugs!!!!!

    Heather, I will send you a letter. You probably know that we tried for 10 years to have children before Thomas was born on your Dad's birthday, another 7 to have Sarah. About 5 miscarriages in all,2 were in the 2nd trimester. I would rather talk to you alone. BUT YOU WILL BE OK ! I have the two most amazing kids on the planet, and it was worth every setback. Love you lots ! n
