If I'm feeling real depressed during pregnancy, am I setting myself up for PPD as well?

I know I need counseling. :( just depressed about money, FTM, and relationship woes.

  • I was super depressed with my second child during pregnancy. I felt like a walking basket case. I did have post partum depression after I had her, but it didn't take me long to snap out of it. Talk to your ongyn about it :) they can help.

  • You know what, I think alot of us suffered some form of depression being pregnant, I know I did, but as soon as my son was born it all went away! Alot of us suffer depression and we're not pregnant with that list you made. Times are real rough right now, but what doesn't kill us just makes us stronger! Everything will be alright! Hugs!!
