Hi everyone. I need your help. I'm having a hard time in my life right now. OK first of all Idont know if what I'm feeling is postpartum depression or depression or something else. Im pregnant, totally happy about it. I live at home with my parents but suppose to be moving with a aunt to be more comfortable for the baby and myself. But all I want to do is lay around and sleep. I work and go to school so I'm not lazy its just when I start think about all and what I need to do I want to stay in bed even more. My thoughts are all over the place also and it's hard to have any emotion and its hard to concentrate. Help and advice is appreciated. I just want to be normal again. :( And has anyone experienced this???

To me, it just sounds like good ol' fashioned pregnancy symptoms. Good luck mama, we are here for you. Hugs!

Its probably just pregnancy hormones. If things are getting confusing to you make a life st of the things you want to do or what yo.u want and mark them off as you go.

 I would guess pregnancy hormones, but if you're concerned, let your doctor know how you're feeling.

You have alot on your plate and I agree with ashleigh , it sounds like pregnancy symptoms to me as well.

When your pregnant, you'll have up and down days. If it starts getting to where it's litterally every day for the next few months, you may want to get some assistance as soon as possible, and let your doctor know as well. When I was pregnant, I had the same problem and I was under a lot of stress as well. Post partum depression I was angry and snappy a lot which I eventually calmed back down to just regular depression. Eat healthy and exercise helps a lot. Even just a visit out in nature, and dont forget to take breaks for yourself!

Pregnancy is a rollercoaster. I can see how getting ready to a move would cause anxiety. Try to take one thing at a time. You'll get through this.

It like you are just so overwhelmed, pregnant, work and school is a lot to deal with, not to mention all of the feelings and different hormone phases that come right along with pregnancy, what you need is a spa day! lol There are a LOT of times where I KNOW I have to do something or something has to be done, but the motivation just isn't there, you are dealing with a lot, just never forget to take time out for yourself as well.. I know I have had MANY issues with that.. You may be in school and have a job, and pregnant, but the mama needs some down time too! It could also be your body just saying.. alright I gotta slooow down a little bit, just make sure you have time to be YOU, and never forget to take those deep breaths!

I never had PPD but what they called the "baby blues".  It went away fast.  I hope you feel better soon.
