I saw the question earlier where the mom-to-be wasnt sure if she really wanted to be a mom anymore now that she's pregnant...but I've been feeling a large mixture of depression lately, especially after my mother kept telling me that I was making a huge mistake going on with this pregnancy. I think she really got to me, because now I cant stop thinking that maybe I'm not emotionally ready yet, maybe I'm not mother-material, maybe I did marry the wrong guy, maybe I am just too young to handle all of this, & yeah, financials arent great right now (especially on bedrest since I was the main income), but I thought everyone was struggling...I'm very confused...I thought this was a happy part of my life, but each day seems to be more of a struggle...& I'm pretty scared. Is it normal to feel this depressed about everything? If so, how did you get through the depression?? I for some reason just feel so alone right now...Answer Question

You can depressed during pregnancy but it is NOT PPD. That comes after and is very different. Talk to your OB.

Yes, you can be depressed during pregnancy. That happened to me six years with my last child. I was extremely depressed,alone,scared, with no emotional support from family,friends,etc. Unfortunately for me 2 years after I gave birth I also found out I have a chronic condition so I'm still very depressed. It's not easy since I still don't have that very needed emotional support but I deal for the kids. You might need to talk to someone it doesn't have to be a professional.....I know it's helpful when a good friend just listens without judging.Good Luck!
