  • Post-partum means after birth but it is possible to have depression during pregnancy as well. It could also be your hormones which can make you feel very emotional.

  • postpartum is after you have the baby.. but being emotional is very normal during pregnancy

  • I've been there. With my first I cried about everything and my husband and I fought about everything. I was very emotional and some times I felt so depressed. But everything turned out fine and I didnt have postpartum depression. Its normal to be extremely emotional during pregnancy especially at the end because your anxious, nervous, uncomfortable and just plain ready to be done and hold your baby. Everything will be ok. If you start to feel really depressed after baby is born talk to your doctor to find out if you have postpartum depression and see what you can do to make it better. Hope this helps :)
