Re: I'm a big mess, depression in pregnancy?
I never really understood depression until I was pregnant with my daughter. I think I was severely depressed. It was to the point of having complete melt downs over nothing. Absolutely nothing. I had no idea why I was crying and I couldn't stop. Like you, I felt isolated and all alone-- which was far from the actual truth, but how I felt nonetheless.
I couldn't understand why I felt that way. I didn't think you could get depression while pregnant, though I knew plenty of women suffer PPD.
Big to you mama. My depression lasted the first and a little of the second trimester. Hopefully it is just something that will pass soon.
