Ok, thread has been created in the Pregnancy Health Issues forum, since Prenatal Depression is a recognised health issue, here is the link:
I'm only 14 weeks pregnant & find I often have to force myself to see the positive in being pregnant. I suffered sever morning sickness, siatica, etc & just feel like my body is no longer my own & almost like im losing myself to my baby. Other times I love being pregnant & get excited thinking about it all but quite often feel miserable, thinking everything to do with pregnancy & child birth is horrible & like it just gets worse the further along i get. This is my first baby so Im wondering is this prenatal depression? Does/did anyone else feel similar or does everyone else love pregnancy. I feel like a horrible person, this was supposed to be the most wonderful experience of my life!
I suffered from pre natal depression and didn't suffer post natal life seemed less complicated once DD came along. I think I was harboring a lot of fears when I was pregnant. Fears that went away once she was born. I was offered 7 free psych visits when I told my OB. I didn't take them up but wish I had.
