    Default wanting to know that Im not alone with how im feeling

    Im not sure where else to turn.. Im a mum to two beautiful little girls who I parent with my ex girlfriend. My now husband and I are having a baby and well ever since I got pregnant I have felt nothing but quite severe depression and wondering if I even really want this baby. We planned this bubs, so i know i shouldn't feel like this but i feel so isolated and worried I will be ripped with judgement if I talk to anyone else about it.

    Everyone else got so excited when I told them i was expecting, I just cant get there myself. I have just been so exhausted running after my two girls and trying to work, while keeping a house. I feel so stressed all the time and the thought of going through labour again just makes me shudder.

    I don't feel excited about buying things for the bubs and Im not even bothering with my 14 week ultrasound. I just don't know whats wrong with me, or if others have felt the same way?

    I hate the fact its only my life that changes with being pregnant ( husband can go on with his life as if nothing is happening). Sometimes i feel so invisible i just want to scream

    I'm so sorry you are feeling this way.....I'm sure you are not the first person to feel like this and I hope some more people reply with their own personal stories that might give you some guidence. I would advise you have a talk with your GP though and have a 'check-up'. You might just be completely exhausted a need a little help......

    It sounds like antenatal depression - a wonderful side effect of the hormones, yay! I had this with DD and my 1st loss, but no sign of it with the second bub I lost or with this one I'm carrying now. All bubs 100% planned and wanted.

    It's the worst because you feel so guilty because you 'should' be glowing/happy/overjoyed - but with DD I could barely motivate myself to get out of bed and even had some very (scarily) dark thoughts on occasion. I should have sought help and thankfully it did pass not long into the second trimester (though I still didn't feel my usual positive self).

    At my check up after my D&C for my first angel bub I spoke to my OB about the depression and he, without hesitation, prescribed me anti-depressants to fill the script if it came back when I fell pregnant again.

    While not as common as PND, how you're feeling is not uncommon and if your GP will not take you seriously and help, find one who will.
