So explain this...

I hate being wasnt a fun experience...and I really really really cant wait for it to be over. Im not scared for labor or anything like that. Im SUPER EXCITED to become a mom. But what I dont get is why Im so freaking depressed. Like shouldnt I be happy that Im pretty much done!?!? Im 36wks as of yesterday...Im on the down ward spiral...but Im depressed as hell. The hubby can't get me out of my slump...and I have tried everything else. Please tell me its just hormones!?!?

  • It is!!!! I hated it too. Every second. But, I wanted to be a mom more than anything. Once you have your baby it will ALL be worth it. Everything. My next one I probably won't be as bad because I know how great the reward is at the end.

    But trust me it's worth it and I felt exactly the same way.

  • I would talk to your doctor about being so depressed. It could be normal and just hormones, but being depressed in your third trimester is a sign that you're at higher risk for post-partum depression. Have you brought it up with your OB? I think you should.

  • Oh hun I'm so there with you. It's definitely the a few months once you have had your baby and gotten into a good rhythm with him/her, you will probably feel TONS better! :) I hate being pregnant too, and was not excited about being pregnant a 2nd time (even though I want the baby of course!)

    It's very normal for your hormones to be raging at this time - you are sick of being pregnant, your body is still working extra hard for the baby, you are probably subconsciously nervous about labor, you are anxious about having a baby in the house...there are tons of reasons to feel overwhelmed.

    If you keep feeling this depressed, don't be afraid to talk to your doctor. Sometimes talking to a professional can make all the difference! And your doc won't think your crazy - because as we all said, this is normal! :) :)
