Hey guys so a week ago I have given birth to the most perfect little boy ever! So happy he's finally here! (=
But the thing that sux is I just feel sad all the time. I get mad at my boyfriend for stupid things. I swear we fight and break up every night. I just don't feel like myself. Anyone ever had this? If so how did u handle it and become normal again lol? I don't wanna be like this anymore. =(

Should go see a doctor or a counciller and they can point you in the right direction after you tell them whats wrong. Don't not seek help it will only get worse better to get it under control early if there is a problem. Goodluck :)

This I believe was the most trying time in my life I loved my son so much but ni didn't feel good enough for him I felt worthless to my husband who at the time was not supportive so it was worse anyways I had to be put on Prozac bc I was so depressed I never been depressed! But it helped I feel like the longer I waited it was robbing me from bonding with my son so I got to the doctor about 2 weeks later I unfortunately suffered through it for about 1 1/2 but keep in mind I didn't have a supportive husband at the time he does better today good luck it could just be baby blues and that will pass but if it persist go see and doctor! U don't with ppd on anyone it truly is I hope you have support as it will help tremendously If u want someone to talk to I'm here:)

Here's a good article about baby blues vs. postpartum depression.  

At a week postpartum,  virtually every new mom has baby blues,  which is an emotional roller coaster.  As the article says,  if you have additional stressers with a relationship or financial difficulties, baby blues is magnified.  As this article says,  like PMSX10.

Sometimes,  this changes into the much more serious post partum depression in the several weeks following the birth.  

The article lists symptoms of PPD as well as what to look for.  

At this point,   you should focus on eating right,  getting a little exercise,  and getting out in the sunshine to walk if possible.  If you have extended support,  have them bring meals or do some housekeeping for you so you can nap.  

And I agree with the others,  let your OB know so he/she can talk to you at your next visit.

I guess the link wasn't allowed.  You can google Baby Blues vs. Postpartum depression for what to look for.
