I'm only 6 weeks along, but saw the topic and wanted to chime in. I have had pretty severe depression and anxiety in the past and am still on a low dose of antidepressant. I've been feeling just fine until yesterday and then the depression and anxiety settled in like a nice heavy fog. I'm hoping it's short lived, but am planning on changing my next appointment with my psychiatrist to sooner and maybe getting back on schedule with a therapist.

My husband had a good suggestion today though. He encouraged me to think about all the things I can look forward to with motherhood (first words, holding a sleeping baby, etc). I started a list and it did calm me down some. Just wanted to throw it out there in case it's helpful.

Take care and best of luck!
Ingrid
