I was super excited at the very beginning. Then was told it was a threatened miscarriage so I was sad. Then it was "ok". But struggled with the fear... that made me sad. Then come the second trimester I became very sad all the time... DH and I were struggling and hormones weren't helping. Third trmiester came around, i found out my husband had an affair and obviously became very sad...and a lot of other things. I had my son about 3 1/2 weeks ago and feel much better. I've been going to counselling to that helps too. 

So though it's common to feel sad, it's not common to ALWAYS feel sad, and if you do... do you have any reasons why you would be so sad, like I did? ((hugs))

It sounds to me like your Dr is taking you very seriously. The next time you see him/her, firmly state that you are having major depression and anxiety issues that you cannot deal with throughout the pregnancy and that you need resources to cope with those feelings and get you through until you can either be safely medicated or until they go away on their own after pregnancy (hopefully)

Could just be anxiety. Hormones effect you differently for every pregnancy. Just like every baby is different, so isn't every pregnancy, even by the same mother. This was my second as well. I definitely noticed a difference in my emotions between my first and second pregnancies. I say, as long as you're doing alright, try not to worry. Worrying just makes you worry even more because eventually you start feeling "symptoms" that aren't really there and stress yourself over nothing. ((big hugs)) hang in there Momma. Regardless of age, you're still entitled to your feelings. They're normal :)

not taking your prenatal can be a huge difference. You should try taking it more. It can make you feel happier believe it or not... because your body needs it to help keep it healthy and strong. When your body is starting to lack nutrion, and you're pregnant, it tends to start taking away other things and it's harder to keep up. So you're bound to start feeling sad or any other emotion strongly.

its nice to see you open up about it....this site can at least give you someone to talk to, but you have to talk back. Most the time you get "talk to your dr" but i think thats because you just ask a question and then nothing, you have to give information What you replied back helped. I worried about everything with my second pregnancy. Not so much the pain, but everything else. It helps to talk, but you have to talk back
