Depression or just hormones?

Hi all, i just wanted to find out if anyone else has been struggling with depression? If so, how do i tell the difference between depression and plain old hormones?

I have had some bad hormones this last few weeks of pregnancy and I talked to my Dr and asked her if my feelings were hormones or more... They know you best, ya know? Good luck mama

I actually have struggled with this issue in my current pregnancy. Talked to my doctor and she said depression caused by hormones. It is not fun and I have to hide it because most people don't understand. I do a lot of faking. And I cry alone. :-) I truly think it's temporary. Hopefully after baby, it gets better. Keep your chin up! Message me if you need am understanding non judgmental ear! I really have been working to find the good on the day. Reasoning with my sil b/c she went through it helps too. And sometimes I just let myself cry. :-)

I silently cryed myself to sleep last night. Dont want to scare my husband so been keeping this to myself, which probably is not helping. I have a very good friend who will give me a non judgemental ear. As alway giys thank u so much for the support!!

Oh mama!  I'm sorry you are struggling. You aren't alone!  Definitely talk to your doctor about your symptoms and see what he/she suggests. There's lots of different treatment modalities available for you.  God luck and feel better:)
