Okay, soo, I have anxiety and depression. I was on medication for both of them but I stopped taking it when I found out I was pregnant because I dont want to take anything while Im pregnant. I got taken out of school and I am being tutored so I dont have to deal with the anxiety of being around the idiots in my school, such as the ones who said they were going to trip me in the hallway so I fall on my stomach because Im pregnant, yeah real nice people right? (and dont judge me for being in high school and am pregnant, I am 18 and much more mature than just about any 18 year old I know. So please no criticism for being too young to be pregnant) But anyways, since I havent been in school my anxiety and depression have been much better. I am 33 weeks pregnant tomorrow, and my anxiety has been acting up. As soon as my Fiance leaves for work my anxiety kicks in and lasts hours. Im sure it is just my pregnancy hormones and Ive gotten used to dealing with it, but now my mom called me and told me that they are putting down the family dog today because he cant even move and wont eat because he is so sick and old and now I feel super depressed. I know it might sound lame to be so upset over an animal, but my family has had this dog since I was about 6. I just dont know how to calm myself down from being so upset because I dont want me being this upset to effect my baby boy. I guess Im just really looking for some insight and someone to say something, anything, to try and make me feel better.Answer Question

I suffered from postpartum depression and anxiety horribly! It is extremely hard as is putting down a pet. They are family. Just remember he is in a better place and won't be suffering anymore. I love the scrapbook idea or pick your few favorite pictures of you two and put them in a nice frame. You are almost there having your lil bundle of joy so just keep being strong. If you need to talk I am here as is alot of the great mothers and womeen on here! GL!
