hormones/ emotions??
Hi, I don't know if there's a thread about this on here or not, sorry if there is.
I am 15 weeks 5 days pregnant right now. And recently have been feeling severely depressed and lonely. Being a generally happy person, this is new to me. Everything in my life is OK, I only have the slight stress of being pregnant and dealing with opposing families. My fiance does a lot to reduce the stress of that. I find myself feeling very lonely and depressed, and for no reason I can see. I genuinely do not get like this, and I was wondering if this was normal. Its got me quite scared, because I'm afraid of how the chemicals produced by your body when you're depressed can effect my baby. Any advice will help, please.

Re: hormones/ emotions??
First off, I am so sorry that you are experiencing those feelings. Pregnancy hormones can cause all sorts of emotional ups and downs.

I would really encourage you to dicuss how you are feeling with your doctor. Things like counselling, stress management exercises and even medications may help with how you are feeling.

Just make sure you tell your partner how you feel. Talking is BIG when it comes to dealing with depression and negative emotions.
