kyki: Sad

I was really happy at the beginning of my pregnancy and I was really relaxed and sure that everything was going to be ok, but in the last 2 months I've just become depressed a lot. It is worse on my memory and really hard because I'm in the middle of moving and I need the motivation that comes from not being depressed to get everything done. I'm 30 weeks and I really don't want to be depressed when I have my baby, or now, and I just wonder if there is anything anyone does or did that helped. Something to help me relax and get my mind off of everything and be able to focus and all of that. I really want to be useful to my baby and I'm not very useful when I'm depressed.

talk to your OB and tell him/her what's going on. i took anti-depressants 6 weeks after my oldest was born (although i was extremely depressed throughout the entire pregnancy) and with my second, i started meds when i was about 3 months pg. i wish i would've spoken up sooner so i could've enjoyed my first pg and my son as a newborn. it was a dark time. things can be better and there's no better time than now. good luck! (if you need to chat more, i'd be happy to. :) )
