I’m feeling blue 🙁
i struggle with short bouts of mild depression. I’ve been seeing a therapist for almost a year now for it. but boy oh boy, does pregnancy amplify all sorts of emotions! i know what triggered it this time, but it happened last night and i thought maybe in the morning the mood will switch again and i’ll feel happy again and all will be right in the world. but nope.
i’m in one of those i-hate-the-world-dont-care-about-anything-anymore-just-gonna-try-to-pretend-i’m-a-zombie-and-go-thru-the-motions-of-the-day moods…. 🙁
in the bigger picture, i’m soooo happy to be pregnant, happy that i’m gonna be a mommie, happy that my hubby is happy about it….just overall happy bout it all you know? and i can deal with all the other preg symptoms, but this hormonal-emotional rollercoaster is gonna be such a tough one to deal with!!!
sorry to be such a downer…just needed to vent.

@MamaHusky3: Wow, can I relate!! Your description is perfect: ” i-hate-the-world-dont-care-about-anything-anymore-just-gonna-try-to-pretend-i’m-a-zombie-and-go-thru-the-motions-of-the-day moods…. :-(“, love it!
Funny thing is during an appt with my OBGYN last week, he was going through the symptoms I was likely having (I’m 17 wks 4 days today) and when he mentioned weepy, I said that I was actually less emotional since being pregnant b/c I had very bad psychological/emotional PMS symtoms & my Darling Husband agreed with me & the doc laughed. Well wouldn’t you know that night, I had a huge cry-fest for no reason & I found myself wondering if I was just taking advantage of getting “permission ” from the doc, lol!!
And don’t worry…you are not a downer!! This pregnancy stuff is HARD and it’s helpful to other moms-to-be when someone is honest about the good, the bad & the ugly!!

I struggled a lot with this in the first trimester. I had crying spells where I would cry for an hour or two (sobbing) for no reason. My 2nd trimester was MUCH better. (I’m 28 weeks today) My husband tried to be supportive, but I know he was frustrated at times. But I got through it (the worst of it) and now I only cry like once a week. Yesterday I cried for 10 minutes after breakfast for no good reason, but luckily was fine after that. These hormones really are something! Hang in there! ((Hugs))
