Welcome, MissSadie. I imagine you're having a rough go right now. Post-partum depression is not helping at all. I had it myself when my first child was born, and I can't imagine making a big life change like this when I was dealing with that. Just from my own experience, I suggest getting counseling for yourself to deal with the depression. You can also ask him to join you for couples counseling, or perhaps ask him to him to help you adjust to this slowly. Explain how you are feeling and that you want this to work, but let him know if you need extra attention, reassurance, and/or support while you deal with both. I'd be careful to assure him I'm not trying to change my mind or stop him, just feel a need for more help. I hope you get what you need.
