Following the birth of my daughter in Aug 2020, I developed pp like symptoms, although I didnt have diagnosis of pp. It was very similar, closer to a bipolar episode (as I have a previous history of one bipolar episode).
My husband and I had been planning to have a second child. And today I found out i was pregnant again. I didnt have a pre- conception meeting as I didnt think it would happen as quickly as it did! So it was a bit unexpected. It hasnt really sunk in yet, I do feel happy but more anxious about having a repeat episode of pp/ how am I going to cope with two children due to lack of sleep (big trigger for me). Plus my labour was a bit tramatic.
sorry for rambling! But just wanted to speak out to people who have been in a similar situation.
Would be great to hear some postive stories.
And thanks for any replies x
