I have severe ups and downs with my pregnancies...I think it's a combination of the hormones and the fact that I truly HATE being pregnant. (In "everyday" life, I am a workout-a-holic, I love rare steaks and having a glass of wine with dinner, and I usually have boundless energy. To me, being pregnant feels like a curse!!) Some days I am fine and other days I feel like I hate everyone and everything, and I'm convinced my life totally sucks.
So anyway, feeling depressed is normal. :( But if you really can't shake it, never be afraid to talk to your doc about it! The best thing you can do for your baby right now is to take excellent care of yourself. And there is no shame in seeking treatment - in fact, it's admirable to be concerned and willing to do something about it!! Good luck, I hope you feel better soon. :)
