I know this is silly

but I was expecting  my mom and dad this weekend  due to crappy roads they can no longer make it.... don't get me wrong I wouldn't want them driving on those roads anyways but I am bummed.... all I do is sit around fiance is on graveyards  so I don't see him much weekdays and by the time it's the weekend we do literally nothing  and it's really getting to me I find that IL just sleep alot during the weekend  I can't even tolerate t.v or movies, so I was really excited for my parents to come down.... they were also bringing my change table down and  they surprised  me with baby bedding and a few things to decorate the room up some more... so I figured this weekend  would be different  and I'd have something  to do.... I'm just really upset and my fiance doesn't seem to understand. .... he knows I get bored and depressed  but he doesn't understand  why

Hi there. well, I can understand being disappointed in their not making it when you were looking forward to it.

However, I'm not sure about the boredom and depression.  Why is that going on?  Why are you bored, for example?

my fiance works graveyards 50-60 hrs a week I'm home alone alone all the time, I don't go out and... a few so called friends kinda dropped me because even before pregnancy I didn't drink or party... I'm only 22 turning 23 and the large majority  of people  my age just want to go out and get drunk during  the weekends, I don't know any mom's to be in my area and even so with me not working my fiance and I are on a strict budget so yeah I have lots of reasons as to why I'm bored all the time and the depression comes and goes  with it.... I hate being housebound especially  when my fiance is home but there is literally  nothing to do

Sounds like cabin fever in a big way.  A friend of mine had to stop working (she is a small-animal vet) 4 weeks before delivery, and despite living on a sheep farm with things to do, she actually dug out dusty old jigsaw puzzles and did them, she got so desperate for activity.

Do you like to read?  Can you get to the library?  Do you like to craft, sew, knit, paint, or even categorize your old cupboards?  There are things to do that don't cost a bundle and can be pretty satisfying.

There are lots of little hobby things you can do. Crocheting/knitting takes lots of time, and you can make little outfits for your little one. :) Yarn is pretty inexpensive and there are lots of adorable free patterns on pinterest.

I wish I could I used to draw and paint quite a bit but since I've been diagnosed  with epilepsy  (on medication  now) I find it hard to do little things that require concentration  I get twitchy and muscle spasms  in my arms... I've been meaning to talk to my neurologist  about it because it would be nice to get back into it..  even knitting. ... I've always wanted to start I've seen people make incredible  things

You can also join a social group to find and connect with other pregnant or parents with young babies. Or even a book club. Often times you will meet somewhere for a dessert or coffee (easier on the budget). That will get you out of the house and making new friends. Check out meet up.com and see if there is a group on there that interests you.

Even with being twitchy, I do recommend learning to knit.  It becomes automatic and actually can ease twitchy muscles.  Check out whether there is a knitting hobby group in your area, they are all over.  A yarn shop I know has a knitting area and it's always full of people sitting and knitting.  :)
