If your symptoms are mild and they are pretty much gone by two weeks, this is the Baby Blues (normal). Although I cannot assess you over the Internet, the feelings you mentioned could be just the Blues, depending on severity. If your symptoms are so severe that they get in the way of your daily life, get help right away. Postpartum depression is an illness that requires treatment. You can speak to a therapist who specializes in ppd and she can help you determine what you need in order to feel like yourself again. She will also tell you if what you're experiencing is normal Blues or if you have ppd.
