I got on teensy little disappointment this weekend (my side job foesnt need me anymore) and since then I'm spiraling into an emotional depression this whole weekend. Everything is upsetting me and rationally I know I'm overreacting and added fuel to this fire by thinking about other things that upset me, but I can't seem to help it.
I just can't seem to cheer up. DH is not good with me being sad, he just gets upset and thinks I have an "attitude" towards him, so he is no help. Not that I think he or anyone can be anyhow.
I think the high amounts of hormones are probably playing a part in magnifying the feelings... I am sorry your DH isn't very understanding, maybe taking a day for yourself would help on both counts?
I have been fighting depression on and off this pregnancy. Luckily I've been happy more than depressed...but it's lurking in the background. It just takes a few little things in one day to throw me off. Then I just want to hide in my bed and cry. I had a really rough day Saturday but Sunday was better. It's so unpredictable and I hate it!
Sorry to hear you're having some similar issues. Around here your doctor/midwife can give you a depression checklist to complete. I did one a few months ago and I was borderline depressed. It helped hubby understand that this is real and it's not just me making it up.
*hugs* I hope things lighten up for you. We're almost done baking these babies!
I think it can. I had it for 18 months after Tori and not at all with Lucas. This time Jon and I are already discussing our game plan if it happens because I already feel very on edge and down and think its a very big possibility.
I would tell your doctor. Even if its just end of pregnancy hormones, your doctor can keep a close watch and help you right after the birth if needed.
I'm always a mess the last couple weeks of pregnancy. I have NOT been a pretty sight this week. For me, I'm just on edge temper wise. ANYTHING sets me off... Oh, baby needs to come. At least for myself I know once the baby is here (after the first week or so anyway) my hormones start to regulate and I'm much better.
