We went through IVF to conceive, and have been lucky enough to get it first try! I am into my 11th weeks, with 2nd ultrasound this Friday. Everythings progressing normally, I have finally gotten the courage and told all my family, and even the morning sickness (which started early at 5 weeks), has passed about a week to 2 weeks ago. But now comes the trouble... other then my pants fitting a bit snug, I feel nothing. No morning sickness, no kicks, no nothing... and I know I am still pregnant, and was warned of this... but basically it seems to be screwing with me and with my hormones at a heightened state, I don't think im bonding the way I should be... am not excited. Im not nervous. I feel like crying a lot, but otherwise I just feel... nothing. And that's scaring me.

Add to that, my husband and I had plans to go to this biiiig once a year expo for expectant mothers, bought the tickets, and then he got told his business trip was moved up to that date. He cant say no. Same day, we were told that we were denied for a new apartment... We make enough money, but my husband lost his job a few years back and our credit took a header... Its still recovering... And just for applying, we lose $40 of the $100 deposit, and need to reapply with a cosigner for another $100...

Basically, everything is going just ****** and I am more depressed then I have ever felt in my whole life. I don't want to work, cant focus, not eating well, stomach in knots, and all I want to do is sleep, but I keep having nightmares (a fun symptom of early pregnancy I guess) and cant even sleep when I get the chance!

I'm sorry things are so rough right now. I'd talk with your OB. There are meds you can try if that's what you and the doctor think is best. Counseling/therapy can helpful, too.

I'm so sorry your going through such a hard time. Pre-partum depression does not get as much air time as postpartum depression, but it is very real and can be totally debilitating. Adding to it is the voices in our heads that say we should not feel this way, we've waited so long ect. I'd definitely advise speaking to a therapist and perhaps medication. You are not alone and you don't have to suffer!

I felt the exact same way. Couldn't get off the couch. For me it got better with time.

Sorry you are going through all that! I have been hitting really low depression waves on and off through my pregnancy, and I know it is not easy. We got pregnant by accident and I was always against having kids - but I love my BF so much and it took a little while but I am totally in love with the little person growing inside of me. Just remember hormones can make you crazy. I was a solid, strong, confident woman for a long time and now I am a ball of stress and emotions. I am considering going in for therapy - maybe it would be good for you to go as well. Even talking in a support group or contacting a counsellor through email.
