View Full Version : Not feeling myself!
Im 32 weeks preggies, feeling fat, frumpy, always tired, unmotivated and a bumbling mess:laughing:It seems I have prenatal depression. Great! Can anything else go wrong! Less than a year ago I met a lovely man after being on my own for 4 years with my now 11 year old daughter, we fell in love,(as you do) got preggies, which was unplanned, we haved moved into a new house, he has a 7 year old son, I stopped my job as an assistant nurse, spose to be going to uni this year:cool: we havent had an easy start to our relationship due to our kids adjusting, our ex's and the shock of being preggies. Phew:ecomcity:Now inbetween other dramas I could do without I find myself a box of misery, cant sleep, cry every day for no reason, have no interest in anything in life, tired as:sleeping: and feeling like I am slowly losing my mind!!(whats left of it!!) :yes:Please tell me I am not the only one feeling like this! Not that I would like anyone else to feel this way, I just feel like a complete nutcase:smiliedance:Take care everyone,Lee xox
Lee, :hugs: to you sweetie!
You are definately not the only person that feels like this during pregnancy or after the birth!
I would talk to your oby or GP about this and they can suggest a strategy to deal with it (either counselling or antidepressants). Don't suffer in silence, you don't have to feel this way!
I had post natal depression after the birth of my DS - it was awful!!! I was fine after the birth of DD, but now, preggas with number three - I got diagnosed with prenatal depression at around five weeks. I felt just about exactly as you described!!! I'm now on anti depressents and feel like I did prior to getting pregnant - loving life again!
It appears you have been through alot recently, so don't suffer in silence.
Let me know how you are feeling soon!
Yep I can relate, totally.
The unplanned pregnancy really can play havoc with your emotions.
I am sick of feeling down, and frightened. I am scared of the birth.
BUT also haven't been feeling my usual self, in the happiness department.
SO I booked into see a counsellor tomorrow.
Maybe it would help you if you talked to someone, who is trained to help.
I know I feel better just having had a chance to chat about things on the phone today.
AND I am hoping my appointment goes well tomorrow.
Good luck to you, I am sure things will start to look up soon.
I'm 15 weeks preg and had been trying for approx 6 months, so not unplanned. I have 2 SDs, aged 10 & 12 and also the 'ex' issues. We are also planning our wedding, in 3.5 weeks (planned before the preg). I'm feeling v overwhelmed and emotional and not feeling like dealing with anything at the moment. I've been playing solitaire on the computer and feeling worse and worse. I work 3 days a week, home today. Just so tired all the time and want to cry except there's no real reason. SD12 starting to act like a teenager, rude & ungrateful/unnappreciative. Also, our dog got out of the yard yesterday and had a go at a smaller dog. We are getting a fine, thankfully the other dog ok, but neighbours not happy with us. Seems like so much going on all at once, and I think I'd deal with it better if I wasn't also preg, hormonal and having sleep difficulties.
I have a Dr appointment next Mon evening, I'll talk to her, thank you for letting me have my say and for the advice to talk to a professional. I hadn't thought about that, and won't keep this all to myself.
It sounds like you have a lot more on your plate than I do, please accept my love and wishes I am sending you! You must be a stronger person than I if you have all this going on in your life. We never get what we cannot handle!
Love & Light,
