I'm 27 weeks pregnant with my second child. I had bad PPD after my first was born, and my pregnancies have only been 15 months apart. I have had "down" days now and then, but nothing like where it is now. I dont want to do anything. I feel worthless. I feel like a failure because our baby wont have a bedroom (not much I can do about it), I feel ugly. I have no interest in doing anything and I'm getting angry very very easily.
I waited a while but my dr knows that i have some days, and we have decided jointly that I didnt need medication until I KNEW it wasnt hormones. I'm calling my dr on monday and seeing about getting my appointment moved to a day earlier than the 31st. Has anyone been on anti-depressants during their pregnancy? I'm worried about side effects for the baby.

I dunno if it's the hormones or not but when I was pregnant, I felt exactly the same way you are feeling now.. "that too shall pass"... I had no option but to bear with it.. It's best to consult a doctor first before taking any medication as it might affect your baby... You ain't alone Ashlie... just hang on, it's really not easy but have faith it will be over too in due time...
