Hi Jessica, welcome to cafemom. Sorry you are feeling depressed, anything in particular bothering you?

Quoting jesikuhh: 1. How old are your kids? Do you have boys or girls? I don't have any kids yet but I am pregnant with my first. 2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now? I grew up in and still live in Battle Creek, Michigan. 3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other? My boyfriend/baby daddy and I actually met because he used to date my ex best friend. That isn't the reason we're no longer friends though, we weren't friends long before he and I got together. 4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself? Since I don't have a job and my boyfriend works 2nd shift I have a lot of time to myself. I mostly just watch TV or Netflix... I get lonely. My name is Jesica and I'm 22 years old. I'm due august 23rd and I don't know the gender of the baby yet but I hope it`s a boy. I am 19 weeks pregnant right now. Have a little case of prepartum depression...

I grew up in Kenya but am now living in Dubai.

I came across a video on youtube and that's how i came to know about Cafemoms and i thought its a great place for moms to support and encourage each other as well as to get valuable advice.

Hello, and welcome to the group. I moved around a lot, and finally settled back right where I started, too. I guess there really is no place like home, lol.

Quoting Theresa_5: 1. I have 3 kids, ages 6, 5, and 3. One boy and two girls. My son is the oldest. 2. I grew up in El Paso, TX, moved several times, but finally settled down back home. 3. I met my husband at a party for our graduating class. We went all through high school knowing of each other, but never met until our last night as Seniors. 4. When I have time to myself, I like to read, work out, shop, go out with friends, or bake. 5. Things on my mind today: I have to get rid of some damn toys! Laundry, ugh. Birthday party planning. I shouldn't have eaten so much last night. My son needs a haircut.

Thank you for the welcome, Elasmimi! Yes, there was a lot of death and abandonment within a very short period of time. The birth of my daughter and then my son started having violent outburst. Things are getting better, I guess. Its a lot of 2 steps forward, 5 back...repeatedly.
