Could be PMDD, might be something to look into
Same thing here. My baby is 4 months old now. My oldest is 12 yrs. Didnt have that feeling w/my first. I am older and more tired now. I also nurse, but its mainly when I am so sleep deprived. Then I get to a point where I want nothing to do with my oldest or my youngest. Just want to get away and dissappear. And like you said only last a few days. But I keep pushing on and remember that it will pass and I do not always feel this way. I even force myself to smile at my children when I rather cry. Hang in there, you are not alone.
I have the same thing happen and for the last couple months that I have experienced it, it seems as though I blamed it on that "monthly gift"...but it doesn't happen every month. I don't breastfeed and I'm a single mom of a 10 month old. It could be the stress of work (I work 10 hour days, 4 days a week and with driving it's 12 hours all together) so I only get to spend several hours in the morning with my baby girl because she is asleep by the time I pick her up and get her home. Her dad is in the picture but it's both our first child so I have the extra stress of helping him get on the same track that I am on at my house when I have her compared to what he does at his (he also lives with his parents so it's easier for him I think).
Anyway, my rant is done...But I do experience the occasional depression.
This happens to me often. Some days ill be fine and then others I have to put the baby to sleep and go in the closet and cry and colllect myself. I cried with my 3 month old on my chest and he became extremely upset. It took me 20 min to calm him down.
This happened to me when my baby was 4 months old. About 3 weeks ago. 72 hour ppd. It was awful. I cried all day, didn't want to go out, just stay home. I didn't understand why I felt that way. I hope it doesn't happen again.
