Im 28 weeks and very excited for my little Connor but sometimes I get depressed to a point where I just go lay down and sleep for a long time and I only get up to drink water use the restroom and eat. Any advice?
I get it to from time to time lately and am only 18w. What I do for myself is even though I have absolutely no desire to get out of bed,I make myself do it and get out of the house anyways,even if it's just to go for a walk and by the time I get home I've forgotten how badly I didn't want to leave.. Maybe that'll work for you too,but if it gets any worse you need to tell your S/O and Dr..
No I have not spoken with my OB but my mother has startex to notice my "sleeping habits" and has tryed to get me to talk to her but I feel if I.say something then theyll put me on some funkey meds that will mess with my little peanut and I dont want that!
Congrats on your pregancy. You need to talk to your OB about it! Its really important to tell them what is going on.You will also be at a high risk for post partum depression if you are having depression already. I can understand not wanting to go on meds right now. But maybe some thearpy will help. After you have your little one, there are safe meds you can take and breast feed (if thats what you want to do).
Congrats! There are safe anti depression pills that you can take while pregnant you just need to talk to your OB to figure which one will work best for you. As you know pregnancy is a total emotional roller coaster, depression is normal but it can also be harmful to you and your baby if you don't manage it properly. Good luck!
