How do you know if you are suffering from depression due to your pregnancy? Or if it's just you being overly emotional? Lately I have been in this kind of depressed state and I can't seem to get out of it. I had suffered from depression about 5 years ago. But have been well for a long time and not needed any medications or anything of that sort. How do you tell the difference? I am currenlty 23 weeks and 5 days along with my second pregnancy.

  • You may just be emotional and overwhelmed. Talk to your Dr. and if you need anyone to talk to, you can PM me anytime.
