Could I have the baby blues?

I am 32 weeks along and feeling ok...

But once in a while...lately once every two or three days...I get this urge to just cry and feel sad....I have cried a few times.

I get this feeling for no noticeable reason and then it goes as quickly as it comes....

Otherwise I am ok...I dont think its depression....just mild baby blues...feeling overwhelmed by a 3rd child on the way.

What do you think? Did you feel this way?

  • that just sounds like stress to me. i dont even have kids and i get that way sometimes. you just have a lot on your mind. sip some tea and take a breather.

  • That happened to me around that time in my pregnancy. OB called it pre-ppd and oh boy was it. It didn't compare to what was to come.
    If you think it might be ppd say something to your doc, especially if you have sufferd from it before.

  • I was a bit sad after my second child was born....sort of like I am now....I thought about mentioning it to my Dr just b/c I am worried it could get worse...did you go on any meds aitson? Not to fond of meds, but not against them if they are needed either....know what I mean?

  • I think it's just normal pregnancy mood swings. However I would still setup some kind of plan of what you can do with your kids if after your baby is born it becomes too much and you need a break. And if you get the slightest idea that you might have PPD go see your doc asap no exceptions. I had it with my last one bad enough that we're dealing with the state right now. However many blessings have come out of that I would still rather have just gotten on meds.

  • Dont listen to the first reply, pregnant women cant have tea.
    It is just your pregnancy horomones. I had it my last month too. make sure you mention it to your doc. Make sure that after you have the baby you tell your doc if you still feel bad, you can get meds that will hepl.
