Expecting and Battling Depression

Hey Moms. I am so glad to have found this group. I am a wife and mother of 3 who is expecting her 4th child. After the painful loss of a child last summer its been a rocky road of tests and uncertainty with this pregnancy but the most taxing is the depression. I have battled it for 6 years but somehow it has gotten unbearable. I would love to chat and grow close to anyone who has had this problem. I feel I could learn so much from those who have been there. Lots of love. <3

I'm sorry for your loss, and wish u the best. It's fear, the worst emotion ever, it robs u of life and happiness and even logic. I battle it daily myself. Try to rise above for your children and yourself

I understand the fears and the worries myself. I'm cooking number seven. I battle alot of different fears but breathing and praying tends to set a calm in me...sometimes it takes a min but i bounce back. I pray the same for you. Good luck and try as hard as it gets to enjoy it bc life is full of depressing shit

It truly is something that seems to linger. Seeing a therapist helps some but when you are pregnant and all the extra hormones it can be tough to manage.

thank you so much for all the support already. praying and breathing do help to an extent. the Lord is gracious and gives me breaks in between anxiety attacks but its scary knowing one will come again ...

Welcome to the group!  I am sorry for your loss and I'm sure that being pregnant now is bringing up a lot of pain and issues.  Do you see a therapist at all?  It helps me with my past trauma and coping skills for getting through life now.  We are always here too.

thanks ladies. yes seeing a therapist. last pregnancy i had some issues with depression but this time seems to be much worse. could also be the winter, bitter and cold up here and dark early. and also the previous loss. seems it does not matter what is going on i just have that tired and slow feeling so often its hard to climb out of

thanks so much for all the advice already its really helpful
