stressed and depressed?

I'm stressed out about starting my new job (excited too) but i'ts something new to me... leaving my kids and getting a babysitter on the days they are off school etc... so it's also depressing me. I have to travel next weekend with them and i don't know anyone yet so that's stressing me out too. I have my ultrasound on the 2nd to see the heartbeat and i'm worred that if it's bad i'm gonna be all depressed and travel with them the next day and i can't even tell anyone why i'll be sad. I know there is nothing any of you can do i just wanted to tell someone how i'm feeling and to see if this has ever happened to any of you. i've never been depressed before because of stress. I mean, i don't even want to get out of bed in the morning... i want to just lay there so i don't have to start the day Sad

I can't imagine having to work outside the home. I'd hate leaving the kids. You're much braver than I.

I'm sure everything will be fine at your u/s. If, God forbid, it isn't, would it be at all possible for you to stay home rather than go on the trip? A m/c is pretty intense physically, and I know I wouldn't want to go through that surrounded by strangers.

Everything will work out for the best. Maybe some chocolate would help.

Well DD is already at school so it's just that DS is going full time rather than part time so I wouldn't have been with them all day anyway. I am a little bummed cuz i used to get some time to myself when Logan was at school and I would have some TV time LOL but thats ok we need the $ more.

I have to go on the trip or i can't have the job Sad i guess i will just wait and see and not worry about it... there is nothing i can do about the baby at this point anyway.

My husband recently left for deployment. And this is our first. So I'm experiencing all these new things alone and I just miss him. And I can't get up some mornings. It's okay.

I'm sorry you're on your own! That's got to be rough. At least you don't have to run after other little ones while you figure out how to cope! I think that would be much harder to do alone. I hope your husband stays safe, and thank you to both of you for the sacrifices you make.

Sorry you are so sad. Change is hard & scary BUT usually it is for the better. If you go on the trip & don't like it look for another job. Sorry you have to give up any personal time that is truely something to be depressed about. Just make sure you have a set time where you get to be. If you don't it will get overwhelming. If you get too depressed call you Dr because I bet you can get clinicly depressed when pregnant because of all the hormones.

I've got my parents (we just moved so no time to find a home of our own) and that helps. Thank you for the well wishes!

Definitely. Especially if you're already prone to it. It's something to watch out for.
