I have had diagnosed depression for the last 6 years and have been taking anti-depressants for most of that time. I am nearly 8 weeks pregnant with my first baby. My doctor knows about my anti-depressants and says that these tablets won't harm my baby.
Since Friday my depression seems to be getting worse. I seem to be constantly sad and blergh, and having been crying more than usual, over particularly stupid things.
I hate the way my body is looking, even though I have only put on 2 kilos (I don't even know if that is bad or not). I am tired all the time and irritable.
What I am wondering is whether this is my diagnosed depression getting worse or whether it is normal with all the pregnancy hormones flying around? I haven't really had any morning sickness except for extreme tiredness, slightly tender boobs and a feeling of pressure down below.
Sorry if this is the wrong place to be mentioning this but I just needed to ask and vent.
P.S Thank you to the people who gave me advice on the antenatal clinic vs obgyn question. I booked my 12 week ultra sound last week, for the end of July, and I think I've decided to go with the antenatal clinic.
