HELP: I don't want to make a horrible mistake!
I need some advice and I need it ASAP. I am 13 weeks pregnant through fertility treatment. I started getting physically ill from pretty much the start of the treatment about 4 months ago.
I found out that I meet the criteria for Pre-natal Depression. Some of those symptoms include:
- Depression/suicidal thoughts or actions
- high frustration/ little to no patience
-obsession thoughts of "bad things" such as not even wanting to carry the baby to term, or not feeling like I can take care of the baby when it is born.
-detaching from the baby that you are carrying/ thinking about abortion/having an abortion
-unable to perform everyday tasks
-low energy- with me can barely get off of the couch and have had to lesson the hours of my job from 35 hours a weeks- 5 hours a week )and sometimes have to cancel those appts.
- Feeling physically sick most of the time (nausea, chest and abnominal pains, migraine headaches)
In addition, my fiance, MIke and I have temporary custody of my 6 month old grandson, Brayden. My daughter has been a drug user in the past, so thats how we got temporary custody of him. But stressful right now b/c he is a fussy baby. However, I would NEVER have any thoughts or hurt him in anyway.
PLEASE IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING MORE ABOUT PRE-NATAL DEPRESSION, PLEASE LET ME KNOW..
I AM AT THE POINT OF TERMINATING MY PREGNANCY BECAUSE I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE TO HELP ME OUT OF THIS MESS!
Please I just want support right now, no judgements please1
