Yes! I also lost my grandmother a few months ago, so now being almost 34 weeks it's hard. I've been very depressed the last few months but trying to think positive

I am also depressed. 20Weeks now. Just found out the father to the little one on the way has been sleeping with another girl, from the beginning of our relationship. I love him so much but I had to leave him. I lost my job because I had to move in with a friend in another town. I never thought I'd be a single mom, and so early at that. Its hard, and I feel more alone now than I ever have....

Yes very. I almost feel like im alone and I dont even know how this is going to work. I am not sure if it's my hormones out of whack but im beginning to think this is just a mistake and we never should have tried to get pregnant in the first place

I'm feeling the same way..  I was addicted to opiates when I get pregnant (with my boss that I was working with and only knew him for4 months) I was struggling to quit before I knew I was pregnant, but once I found out he helped me through it... I'm 18 weeks and very depressed because I did a lot of things I'm not proud of and most of which I can't remember... I know I wasn't a good person and treated him like ****; even through everything and all the messed up stuff I did he still stayed and loves me but I feel like he would be better off without me.. I never wanted kids nor did I think I was able to have any! I'm so not ready to be a mom and scared out of my mind which makes me even more depressed... what if I can't do it and be a good mom is what always is running thru my mind our what if my addiction is stronger than I am? I'm going to just blame it on my hormones and being in recovery and actually being able to feel my emotions now instead making them with the pills!!
