Did you suffer depression during pregnancy or post partum?
I'm 8 months pregnant with my first and I can't seem to shake this depression. I know I should be so thankful and so excited but every day I seem to get more and more down on myself and I feel really isolated. I don't have a ton of girl friends, just 2 or 3 and none of them would I consider 'best friends'. The girl that was my best friend and bridesmaid in my wedding decided to completely dump our friendship as soon as she found out I was expecting. So I pretty much just work then come home and wait on hubby to get out of work, try not to spend any money so we can build our savings.... Last night I got so depressed I ended up cutting myself, when hubby found out he yelled at me and said I was acting like a high schooler. Before I met hubby I had a lot of self-harm issues and managed to stop most of it when we got together because I was embarrassed by it, but I have occasionally regressed in the past few years. DH doesn't know how to respond to it so he usually just yells at me for it... Sometimes I feel like I'm going to be a shitty mom.... I just hope our baby girl doesn't take after me and have depression and self esteem issues when she grows up...
