I am sorry that you are feeling the way you do at the moment. I do not see that this is a sign of you possibly developing PPD after the birth. Have you discussed the way you are feeling witha health care professionals, It could be a sign on pre natal depression.
I am sure that your feelings will pass once the baby is here and I have no doubts at all that you will bond with the baby. I have only had one child but I would imagine that each pregnancy is different. With the first everything is new and exciting and you dont't really know what to expect or understand what it feels like emotionally to have a baby. I think that the 2nd time around we are all more aware of it all and the novelty of being huge wears off as you've done it before.
I am sure that you will be fine but perhaps you could do with discussing this with someone that you trust. No one will give youa lecture but it may help for you to know that you have emotional suuport from someone close and that not everything is about the new baby but you are still in there too.
I think somewhere between 10-15% of women devolop prepartum depression, and the risk of having postpartum for these women is much higher. I'm currently pregnant with my first due in 20 days and out of no where about a month ago I began feeling different alone, confused, scared, and several other little nagging feelings which won't go away. The best thing you can do for your baby and yourself is speak to a healthcare represenative so they can determine the best route of help. Talking about it will help too, and as long as yolu keep being honest with yourself you will get the help you need. I'm not a doctor I'm only telling you this stuff because I've been researchng it for myself. I wish you ther best, and if you need anyone to talk to drop me a note. Take care care and god bless, Happy Easter.
I was diagnosed with depression in my 3rd trimester. it was like that for both my pregnancies. they put me on medication for the 3rd trimester. it only made me sleepy- i went off of it i wish i would have had more time to find a medication that worked. i somehow got through the last trimester. as soon as i gave birth it went away. i now have depression for different reasons.
