I know this probably sounds like a dumb question..? But how do you know if you are depressed?

I know that there is extreme depression.. but what's the difference between mild depression/and just sadness? How can it affect your pregnancy?

Loss of interest in activities that you enjoy to participate in

Sleeping too much or not sleeping enough

Loss of appetite or eating too much

Decreased libido

Not wanting to be with people you like/love

Feeling defeated

Suicidal thoughts/feelings

Sadness-comes and goes. Depression sticks around. As my therapist would say to me--everybody gets sad at times in their life but when the sadness never goes away then a person is depressed. I do not have a solid answer for the pregnancy because the one time I have been pregnant, we lost the baby at 12 weeks but do know that women with depression (moderate to severe) have a higher % of having post-partum depression.

Have you thought of going to see your primary care dr.? Just to talk to them and see what they think and tell you if you should go and take the next step to talking with a counselor and get their opinion?

The symptoms of depression in women are the same as those for major depression. Common complaints include:

Depressed mood
Loss of interest or pleasure in activities you used to enjoy
Feelings of guilt, hopelessness and worthlessness
Suicidal thoughts or recurrent thoughts of death
Sleep disturbance (sleeping more or sleeping less)
Appetite and weight changes
Difficulty concentrating
Lack of energy and fatigue
