I have a friend how just gave birth a few weeks ago.

her husband works as a merchandiser, has a business and has a band. on christmas year is the were he gets a lot of gigs and he is hardly never there, but the money is worth the sacrifice.

my friend is very mad about him taking so many gigs. she is constantly crying and fighting with her husband because of it. up to a point where her husband cant stand to be at the house with her because she is constantly fuzzing of his band and he cannot stand the crying.

I know that one os the symptoms of PPD is excesive crying, but can it concentrate only on one thing. she does not fight over nothing else.

is it PPD or is she just mad at him because he is never around these days?

what should they do to have a merry x-mas?

THis sounds like my first marriage.  I was 9 months pregnant and he had a gig an hour away.  I told him when he left that I had the bar's phone number and would call if I needed him.  He said he couldn't leave in the middle of a gig.  Not even to watch his baby be born.  I put up with his self centerednedss for 16years.  Then he finally divorced me because I was to demanding of him in terms of being a father.  Now he is married to the girl singer who had her tubes tied at age 30 because she never wanted any kids.  They are a perfect match.

I stressed out sooooo much when my first baby was born. He NEVER changed a diaper at all.  When the baby started on solid food, I had to feed him away from the table because watching him spit his food out made the Bum nausiated.

I did have another child with him, but I knew by now, that I would be raising it myself.

Sounds like you married a jerk honey.  I know I did. mad

Ugh Self centered men!!! That doesn't sound like post partum,it sounds like postmymanisajerk
He can't stand the crying? He needs to deal with it and figure out what he can do to make her feel better.
In a perfect world she should just go about her own way,visit her family and leave his butt at home to be alone!
Don't worry about the world ending,it's already tomorrow in Australia!
