I've just been feeling very down lately I just want to cry, cry, cry. For the dumbest reasons too.. and then some not so dumb (to me at least). May can't come fast enough.. is anyone else dealing with these overwhelming feelings!? I know we are pregnant but geez.. I don't remember feeling this way with DS!
I feel the dumpy feel to a degree but there's reason behind it.. Sorry you're struggling with the dumps, mama.. You think weather may have something to do with it?? You guys get snow? Had dreary days for days upon end?
It's really a friendship of mine that is bothering me.. I believe that's where it stems from. It'll work itself out.. either by moving on or working on that friendship.
But it has been raining.. today is gloomy and that is not helping!!
Sometimes friends can be the best pick me ups but also the most bring me downs.. At least you're able to recognize what's making you feel down.. I hope you find some peace and resolution one way or another.
I'm having a really rough week. I never really cry but I have been crying SO much. I have no patience and I feel totally overwhelmed by everything, big or small. I'm starting to understand why people just run away and never come back. It's SO not like me but I can't help it! The other day I was trying to work (I work at home) but was near breakdown for hours. Finally at 12:30 I went upstairs to bed and cried for an hour...then spent 6 more hours in bed. I just couldn't handle the world. Of course then I feel really guilty since I'm supposed to be working and being a normal human.
I'm going to talk to my midwife today...I'm not sure it's just normal pregnancy hormones. I also have quite a disconnect from the baby and don't have the joy I had with my pregnancy with DD. I hope the midwife can help me today...I hope you feel better soon too. It really sucks and I can't imagine 3.5 more months like this.
I'm so sorry, Heather. I have been googling "feeling down during pregnancy" and I have read that women go through it and you can get help and it's ok. I really just feel like mine stems from this friendship thing. I just want to cry and cry.
I really hope that you can talk to your midwife about it and you can get some help in whatever way it may be. It's really hard to admit something like this. I told my DH I just want to be happy again! Thinking about it makes me cry LOL
I know how you feel and if I keep feeling this way, at my next appt. I will mention it to my midwife also.
For me it's a lot of little things...work, my DSD, my DD's attitude, the housework, my backlog of hats I need to make, just everything. The world is spinning and spinning and I just want to get off! That's when I just go and hide in my bed. LOL
Now that you put it that way.. I am also stressed with work and I am a clean freak usually and with all this stress and me being tired again, it's not getting done and I feel overwhelmed! Ahhh.. wish we could just take a break from reality for even a couple days. Wouldn't that be wonderful!
