I think so too.

I had quite bad ppd with our first baby. A lot of it was situational, I think, but it was really tough and we nearly didn't make it through it together.
I have had the normal weepy days, "baby blues", with the rest of the babies, but nothing like it was with her.
I think if you're not sure, if you're feeling off and questioning "how bad is it supposed to be before it's ppd", then you are dealing with it all ready to some extent and should go talk to someone.
The difference between my experiences (ppd vs. normal hormonal blues) was night-and-day - it didn't feel the same and didn't make me wonder or question.
mama. ppd is no joke. it's so tough. but recognizing that something is happening, being aware of it, is a good sign! just go talk to someone and get the help you need to get through it - whether that be some meds for a while, or just talking to someone. Good luck!
