So after 6 months since the birth (breastfed for only 5 weeks) my period has returned and so I haven't had it now for 16 months all together. Anyway, the two nights before I got my period I had this recurring nightmare that I was in labour allllllll night! when I woke up I was so relieved then the next night it happened again and it sort of made all my emotions about what happened to me when I had PP come back, which isn't really a bad thing coz as soon as I was able to function and look after my baby again I just was so busy with that, that I haven't really processed the whole experience. Anyway they say the extreme hormone surges and/or depletions when you give birth are a big trigger for PP so I just found it so interesting that the same pre menstrual hormones made me feel those feelings again and bring me back to the trauma of birth in my dreams. I hope that everyone that is suffering from PP right now is doing ok, it's like being in a constant state of terror and you amazingly do get better one day !
