For many new women, trying to and finding out they are going to be a new mother is one of the best feelings in their life. Every moment of pregnancy brings overwhelming feelings of joy and anticipation of the new arrival. Getting pregnant and giving birth is truly a miracle. What happens when things don’t work out this way?

I fell into a terrible depression during my pregnancy. People don't know what to do/say/think, and often end up saying things that make it worse and getting upset with you for not meeting their expectations of your pregnancy. I think that talking to a professional, someone who is not too close to the situation, is best. Also, get your hormone levels checked- all of them- pregnancy can trigger all kinds of issues.

Although mine is infrequent, I understand and sympathize with the depression during pregnancy that you are feeling. Sometimes there are reasons that seem to trigger the depression- like financial stress, fears or loneliness- and other times it seems like there is no reason at all. All I can say is hang tough- you will be ready for this baby and you will be the mom she/he needs. Worrying about money is normal, but financial help is available for moms and is a temporary issue. (I'm sure you've discovered a plan of your own already, but just in case: Programs like WIC, Medicaid, Headstart, and Welfare are designed to help. I live in New York so I use WIC, it helps with groceries, and receive free medical coverage from Medicaid.) The thing to focus on is the amazing love that you and your baby will share, and are already beginning to share. You'll begin to notice your heart growing for this child and caring for it like you care for no other being on this earth. This love will guide you to do the right things. The rest will fall into place. I promise. My heart is with you.
