Anxiety and depression=/

Hi im 24 weeks and 4 days...i had anxiety before i got pregnant but now it seems like it just never goes away...its an all day thing and nothing.makes me happy anymore. I try to watch tv to take my mind off of it but i just cant get into the show. I have seriously tried everything and its like nothing helps. I havent taken anything for it and i dont want to because i dont want to affect my baby girl.): im just so over it. Its rlly scaring me and im just wondering if anyone else has felt this overwhelmed and is it guna go away ever?

I am in the same boat. To be honest it may seem like it will never get better but it does mine has been getting better it just takes time I try going for walks drives I eat things that are comforting watch movies that won't make me upset in anyeay or listen to music that makes me happy I call family or friends or I go on my cell and play on this app or fb or anything I used to be able to deal with it better before I was pregnant but now its even worse bc of all the hornones and new worries and stressors that pregnancy brings I don't take anything for it bc of the harm to my baby girl but do know this will pass and you WILL get through it I never thought I would and being honest I can bettet handle my anxiety now then ever before it actually taught me how to use different things and ways to get rid of it and I feel even more blessed:) goodluck I know you can do it think positive its hard work but not impossible

I've been the same and am 15w+5d. Best thing i did was go to my doctor and talk to them about it, they were really supportive and have put me on sick leave and referred me for counselling again. I definitely advise speaking to your doctor about it as they will do everything they can to help you without dishing out medication (: hope you feel better soon x
