Hi im new. im 24 weeks pregnant with our little girl.
My husband and i have been under a ton of stress amongst other things.
He has clinical/genetic depression.
we believe i may be depressed and my doctor is closed today. is this something i need to call and interupt their saturday with or should it wait until monday? i know depression can sometimes have effects on the baby.
This is just my opinion, but I would probably wait until Monday, unless you feel like it is so bad that you cannot cope or care for yourself. Prolonged periods of high stress can potentially cause fetal distress, but not necessarily. I was under some pretty extreme stress when pregnant with #1, and she turned out perfectly fine.
Anyway, sorry you're feeling depressed. I hope you're able to work through it with your doctor. And really, you know yourself best...if you feel like you need to, there's no harm in calling today.
