I have had two more songrams since my last post. They both showed a very perfect, very bouncy little baby. Heart rate has been in the 160's. However today I got the "preliminary" results on the NT test. All of the measurements were perfect, but the bloodwork shows that I am at an "increased risk" for Trisomy 21 (Down's Syndrome) and Trisomy 18. I made the appoint for the diagnostic bloodwork for next week, but I think I am going to cancel it. It won't make a difference to my Dh & I either way. We both have a strong faith (right now him more so than me...life is wearing me down), but we both feel like everything is going to be ok. We have also had several people at our church tell us that too.

My depression is pretty bad right now, my OB wants me to be on medicine, but I don't want to risk hurting the baby. I was on Cymbalta with my son who passed away, and I know in my heart that the cymbalta was a contributing factor in his demise. I just wish I could let go of stuff. Starting at age 5, I ve been through the mill and then some. Im in a great marriage now, and I couldn't ask for a better "from the outside looking in" life, but I am just so weighed down on the inside by everything that I have been through.

Please continue to pray for us...

Aw hun, I'm sorry you're feeling depressed. If you can get to a therapist to talk about things maybe you can get by just fine without medication. Good luck to you!

I'm truly sorry that you're having such a hard time right now.

I'm also dealing with depression and anxiety without medication - it's hard! Do you have supportive friends and family? Have you thought about counseling of any kind? Do you feel well enough to get out of the house and walk, even if it's briefly just several times a week?

I am sorry that you are going through this too, but it really helps having someone here who truly understands. Thank-you for the ! My OB gave me the name of a counselor in the town I work in, but when I called them today, they told me they dont take my insurance When I am home, I am so blessed tired that I just want to go to bed. I work full time at a job that is one hour each way from home. I am also in school full time. There is 4 more weeks left in this semester, and then I am only taking one class this summer. Hoefully the lighter load will be some relief. I have absolutely the best DH in the entire world (I will brag at any given chance ) He is so super supportive, that Sometimes I almost wonder if it is too good to be true.

I can relate to your description. I found there are certain things that it's less about letting go and more about living with, for myself anyway. Some things have such an impact that they change you. I found group therapy to be very beneficial. Something about knowing it's not just you lessens guilt and shame type feelings that sometimes come along with the territory. Check with Family Services for referrals - some may work on a very reasonable sliding scale.

I strongly believe you have a beautiful healthy baby baking in there.
I am so sorry that the depression is kicking in and I know you are strong enough to kick it right in the butt.
You have been through so much and I cannot see those numbers meaning a darn thing BUT I will say a special prayer for you anyway because you are asking for one.
Hang in there. I have my eye on you!

I have also dealt with depression for most of my life. The pregnancy hormones seem to bring it out worse too. You just gotta keep going, but I know how hard it is, and it sounds like you have a very stressful life right now with commuting so far and school. Please take care of yourself, you are so blessed to have a husband who is supportive. I will pray for you and that sweet little baby.

**hugs** hoping and praying for a false positive on the NT scan results. I'm sure everything is ok.

Hang in there, girl. I know it's tough. I've had my share of depression. It's no fun. You have a great outlook on it though. Just keep swimmin'

Most everyone I know that has gotten bad results on the NT scan were false. I know it is hard dealing with depression, my dh deals with it all the time. Hugs.

Sorry you are having such a rough time. I've dealt with depression my whole life as well, so I know how tough it is. I find pregnancy really makes you feel blah most days too! Thinking of you!
