For the past few days i feel like i am walking around with a black cloud over my head. I am so sad and irritated! Last night I cried my eyes out for over an hour and the more i cried, the more reasons I thought of to cry!!! It's completely ridiculous and i really have no reason to feel this way. We went today to Babies R Us and ordered the crib (the white crib with canopy by disney) that i have been dying for... but that didn't even change my mood.
I know that it is hormones but it's so hard when you feel a sadness come over you and you can't do anything about it.
Anyway- Thanks for letting me vent- tomorrow is a new day and i hope this black cloud disappears!
Nothing is wrong with you except the hormone attack. It sucks but it is so normal. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. Big hugs! Have you been feeling like this for a long time or just a few days? If it lasts and really has you down, maybe you should discuss it with your OB. Hormones can really mess you up. I hope you feel better very soon!
You are not alone! It has happened to me too!
Once I sit down and am crying it out, i always seem to find more to cry about. But I usually feel much better after I cry.
Hormones are so hard on us...I hope you are having a better day!
I'm glad your feeling a bit better. I urge you to be open and honest with your OB about your feelings. I think we often don't want to bring up that kind of thing out of fear etc. but thats whats they are there for. With DD I had severe depression/anxiety during my pregnancy and was put on medication after I simply couldn't take it anymore. Its not as common as PPD but it does happen.
Hoping yours is short-lived and that you start feeling awesome again soon
