I don't understand what's going on with me..

like i really dont. Ive been sooo emotional lately. i dont get like this!! idk if it is because I am pregnant. but I think it is too soon to have to symptoms. i know that im going through a lot right now in my life and that has something to do with it. but i can't seem to control this overwhelming emptiness feeling.

Anyone else ever feel this way? What could it be? I don't think I"m depressed...but maybe I am.

  • its a mix of everything. Pregnancy, changes and stress in your life. I was overly emotional before I even found out I was pregnant and I found out when I was 4 weeks.

  • stress can take a toll on your body and mind. and pregnancy really revs the hormones. and depression can make you really emotional. it could be any of those. maybe you should see a dr.

  • OP here: mommy of long were you emotional before you found out? like right away? I feel like it just got worse the past week. I have been down in the dumps before (haven't we all) but never this bad! this is such a horrible feeling.

  • Even if your baby is the size of a grain of rice, there are all kinds of new hormones pumping through your body that can affect different women differently. Hang in there!

  • Well...wouldn't it be too soon? We had sex on the 12th day (pulled out) and the 14th (ejaculated inside) ...I thought I was ovulating like the 11th or something. And it hasn't even been a full week. or well..tomorrow it will be. I don't remember super early signs with my first.

  • a couple weeks. I just thought it was because my hubby came home from deployment because I'm never a cry baby. The last time I was a cry baby is when I was pregnant with my daughter and after i had her but i never suspected pregnancy because I was on BC. It may be depression as well. I suffer from major depression and always felt down till I got on Zoloft and it improved my mood but not 100%

  • It might be to soon mama. I would recommand talking a PT 2 weeks from the day of ovulation.

  • Yeah I think I need to go see my doctor. You think I should wait it out till its time to test for pregnancy? Or go ahead and see the dr about getting on something like zoloft? If I am pregnant is it okay to be taking that kind of medication?

  • the dr will ask you a series of questions to determine if you're depressed or if its just hormones and then if he thinks your depressed he'll give you a safe anti-depressent. I'm not sure whats safe I never took them during pregnancies. I would diff go see a doctor in a couple weeks. That way you know if you are pregnant and/or if you think you're depressed. Good Luck mama keep me posted on whats going on.
