Anyone else feel "down" lately?
I dunno what's wrong with me, but I've hit 23 weeks with second bubba & I'm sad. Things that wouldn't normally upset me have me in tears. I've had to deactivate FB, as I'm scared I'll have an emotional outburst of embarrassing proportions. Mothers Day night saw me in hysterical, uncontrollable tears over the announced changes to PPL (which I later realised, won't apply to me anyway).
I'm healthy, pregnancy is progressing well, toddler is healthy, work is ok (although I have increased hours to save some $$$ before bub). I do feel isolated though, as for safety reasons can't participate in my usual sporting activities. I'm at a very different stage of life to most of my friends, who have either got older kids, or not started a family at all.
I hope my feelings of sadness pass, otherwise it will be back to my GP.

Second trimester blues?

Hugs. I felt like that in the second Tri.
It'll keep going up and down through your pregnancy probably. Try to be kind to yourself. Avoiding things that might trigger you is a good idea.

Too much TV and social media makes me upset & angsty...and of course, what do we do more of during pregnancy once we get more uncomfortable (and the weather gets cold)?
I need to read lots of fluffy books for an escape & on days home with my son, go outside & do things rather than wallowing. Monday was a wallowing in PJs sort of day.

I think it's a combination of hormones but also you're starting to think "what world am I bringing this baby into". It makes you get very existential.
It happened to me in the lead up to my wedding as well.
