Hi, I'm 24 weeks pregnant and I've never really had a problem with depression, but recently have felt like maybe I'm depressed. My husband and I moved 2 hours away from the town I grew up in the week I found out I was pregnant, and ever since living up here it's like I can't do things the same. I used to do really well at keeping my house clean and making dinner everyday, but now it's like I can't get myself to do anything. I don't have a job and I don't know anyone up here, so I should have no reason for not keeping a clean house. I also used to make menus every week and grocery shop once a week or even every 2 weeks. Is it possible that being pregnant has made me depressed?

Maybe not depression but certainly messed with your emotions. I think our hormones just go crazy when we are pregnant and little things can affect us in big ways. I thought I was depressed when I was pregnant, I had alot of stress on me during my most recent pregnancie, sometimes I just shut down like you, I didn't feel like doing anything. I think during pregnancy it can be normal. Han in there momma, you are more than half way done, it will be all worth it when your LO is here. congrats on the pregnancy!
