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!

I was prime when I needed to do this and I was living with my parents at the time because Kyle was deployed. They told me all I needed to do was search for someone in the area that took tricare.

I am glad you have decided to push forward and see someone. I hope you can get things sorted out. I know how hard it is being without dh due to deployment and the depression that comes along with it. Hang in there make yourself get up and try to take a small walk to get some fresh air. KUP posted on how your appt goes. Lots of HUGS!
