Re: Depressed BEFORE birth?

You might be experiencing a drop in progesterone, just like right before AF comes. Progesterone will drop before birth and after giving birth, and that leads to blues, etc. Your body might be getting ready to deliver.

Don't forget all the feelings of being overwhelmed: new house, new baby, etc. ((((Big hugs)))). I was freaking miserable during my last pregnancy and was thankful that I delivered a month early (only after I found out that she was ok.)

Hang in there! Perhaps seeing your sweet baby's face will help.
Are you ttc? Don't forget your folic acid. Ask me why.
