Feeling alone
Hi everyone- just wanted to see if any of you have felt depressed or alone during your preganancy. I mean some days I feel good and happy and the others I feel alone, like I'm not myself. Lately it's been hard to even want to get up for the day. I feel like my husband doesn't look at me the same or want to touch me since getting pregnant. He try's to ask what's wrong and what he can do but I dont know what to say. I guess I don't really understand it myself. How do I talk to him, what do I say? I love our baby and so blessed to be starting our family but this is so tough

Hi. I know how you feel. I went through this with two of my pregnancies. I was also suicidal. Its pre partum depression. The hardest thing to do is to say out loud "im sad and i Don't know why". You should talk to your Husband about what you feel, just get it out however you can. If you want to be touched more tell him. I had to tell mine i needed to be touched from the moment he came home till when.we went to sleep and now we touch all the time. Your body is changing and so are your hormones. Talk to your dr about medication or if you don't want to do that talk about getting counseling, I'm telling you it works. But you have to take the first step and ask for help.

I had that too with my first, defiantly talk to your husband and let him know even if it's 'I don't know what i need but I will let you know'

Also let your midwife/OB know, mine was able to suggest things to help me and when my husband came to apt they explained things to him
