- Wedding: September 2013
So i had my first midwife appointment today which went pretty well until they started digging into previous health issues.
After filling in the forms i was told she will mark me as low risk but said that im medium risk of post or prenatal depression due to me suffering anorexia in the past and planning a wedding. When i was anorexic i suffered mild depression and body dysmorphia.
Not quite sure what to make of this really. I had never thought about it really but i think she may be right about prenatal depression. I have felt down and cant get excited about being pregnant. I have occassions where i feel teary kind of depressed but didnt even think about the possibility of prenatal depression.
now im not sure what to think. Shes given me a booklet to read and said she will monitor me again at 16 weeks.
