I'm having a hard time getting through the day this week. I feel like I m just off balance with everyone else. I can't stop crying and I keep talking to my family and telling them that I think I need some help and I feel like I'm getting pushed aside. I'm finding it really difficult to take care of DS today, but everyone is at work. Any advice?

Sounds like antepartum depression. :-( Have you told your OB?

I'm sorry you are feeling down and overwhelmed, I hope at the least we here can listen and try to steer you in the right direction.

What state are you in? There are toll-free numbers you can call, kind of like a support or crisis line, where at the very least you can talk things out with someone in the meantime.

Feel free to PM me. Hugs!

Yes. Call your OB and let them know you're really struggling emotionally, and need some help. It won't be the first time they've had patients experience this.

I'm really sorry you're feeling this way. Sending you big hugs. I hope you get the support you need.

I hope you got a hold of your doc too. I know nothing about pregnancy depression but at least wanted to say I hope everything works out for you soon! Pregnancy is tough sometimes..

So much better today! I took an entire day off from everything and just slept and my mom came over so I could talk it out, I feel like I flipped a complete 180 from the other day! I'm sure there will be more low moments to come, but today I feel great! Thanks for checking

And thanks everyone else for offering their support as well. It's nice to know that there are people there for you, even if they're miles away!

I've been experiencing some on and off pregnancy depression. Ladies on here have been great. Sometimes it just helps to talk it out to start feeling better. I'm glad your mom was there for you. Feel free to PM me anytime.
