Hi ladies,

I have been feeling really down lately. I'm 7 weeks pregnant with my first, and I've been feeling sad, lethargic, and depressed.

I was wondering if any of you dealt with these feelings early in your pregnancy and what you did to help ease it.

I've scheduled an appointment to talk to a counselor so I can hopefully get some these feelings talked out, but I'm apprehensive about this.

I could use any advice and help you can offer.

I have heard of some women experiencing these symptoms. I think you are doing the right thing to talk it out with someone who is trained to help. Sometimes just having someone listen is exactly what you need during a time of depression. It isn't always easy to talk about, but you always feel better when you do! Hope this helps!

Hi there!

When I was in my first trimester, I suffered with depression as well. I felt really down and helpless. Luckily, as my pregnancy progressed, my depression decreased significantly! I am now 17 weeks and I feel like a completely different person! I would suggest talking to someone close to you. It helped me a ton to have my husband to talk to and tell all of my feelings to.

Try to keep your head up & remember that it doesn't last forever!

You are taking the right steps by getting someone to talk to. Maybe try doing some excersice, like some light cardio. This will get your blood pumping and your endorphins going. I know that you probably don't even want to get up and get moving but it really can make a difference.. hang in there

(((hugs))) I have been there. My 5th pregnancy was incredibly hard for me, though after 20 weeks it got much better. It was still my hardest, physically and emotionally. I took many steps to help get things better, including talking to my midwife. I wrote a series on my blog where I detail everything out if you'd like to read. Maybe it will help
