  • Definitely sounds like depression. Motherhood is hard enough without it. Get help.

  • Read some uplifting literature. Call a hot line, hang in there.... you can do it.

  • Sure. If i was sad and hopeless I wouldn't feel good about bringing another sad, hopeless life into the world.

    Have you gotten any help yet? Cause if you're having trouble taking care of him, your probably not taking care of yourself or your home very well either and after a while it starts to pile up.

  • I sometimes feel that way i am 18 weeks and my relationship is going to shit.....i hate to bring another baby in this world and our relationship is basically over now...but last year i got an abortion and it really hurt me that i killed a life that was inside of me... i vowed to never do that again...not just because of the regret but also because all the reasons i did it ended up blowing up in my face a few months later!!!! so it was like whats the point...its hard to hang in there but try to find things that do uplift you..thats what i been trying to do. Hope things work out for you...GOOD lUck...and always honor what you feel because you are the one who must live with your own decisions not anyone else!!! honor whats in your heart!!!!

  • Talk to someone and feel it out. You may be happy when he/she is here. There is always adoption

  • Yep. I've gone through that exact thing three times - well twice and currently. Sounds like depression 100%... Talk to your doctor or find a psychiatrist, because depression during pregnancy can lead to PPD which can end up being very dangerous!
