Pregnancy is supposed to be one of the happiest times of a woman's life, but for many women this is a time of confusion, fear, sadness, stress and even depression.
um, hi my name is brandy and this is my short story. well i guess ill get right down to it.
about a month ago i was raped (dont wanna talk about it ,please and thank you) and a few days ago i found out i am pregnant and im justloking for some advice.
My name is Melissa & I am currently pregnant with my first baby! My husband & I are over-joyed with the news. I have pollycystic ovarian syndrome & didn't think I could get pregnant easily, but it took just two months!
I am about 8 weeks along & am having a bad day. Morning sickness kicked in about 2 weeks ago. That has not been fun. Foods I used to love I can't stomach anymore & I never know what Im in the mood for. Nothing tastes the same as it used to. I don't enjoy eating right now.
I need some help and I don't know where else to turn. I am 20 weeks pregnant with my first child at age 35 and feel I may have become seriously depressed. I first mentioned this to my OB at about week 8 and he basically blew me off. In all fairness though, it's a group practice and you don't really get to know any of the physicians very well.
Ongoing full-blown depression can sometimes affect a developing baby, both directly and through inadequate nutrition. The risks are small, but real. Thankfully, there are safe treatments for pregnant women. Whether you need treatment or not, the outlook for your baby is good.
From the moment you bring your baby home from the hospital, you begin to undergo more life changes than probably ever before. As your baby's life begins, a new life also begins for you. As countless others have told you, "your life will never be the same again".
