Sorry I didn't want to read and run, but got no experience. Is there a counselor or someone you see that you can talk to. Hope you feel better soon.

I only had a very mild case of the baby blues after Sebastian was born but my BF suffered with PND with all 5 of her children. All I would suggest is that you get on with your midwife asap to get things sorted - counselling can be sorted straight away and she may be able to offer you some other forms of support depending on what you need.

I suffer from depression and anxiety, made worse from AND and PND in my last pregnancy. Throughout this pregnancy had loads of people involved to give the support and strength I needed to stay of the meds. This time the depression is there but manageable, I am developing more severe anxiety like I did last time (9 days after giving birth); I have just had a visit from my MW (who has been a rock) who has told me to go to the drs and get a prescription ASAP so put a stop to it before it esculates to the extent of how ill I went last time.

My sister had PND first time round and had nothing second, so I don't know to what extent there is a pattern or predictability 'test' to work out if it will engulf you.

I would book an appt with your MW asap and seek advice and support. If you have had it before they are less likely to question you and wait to 'see how it goes' because you already know what how you cope with it and will hopefully put your mind at some ease.
A few bad days may not mean you have it bad again so try not to worry, but do seek support
