Anyone feeling blue?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am so depressed with no good reason. I just feel miserable and can't shake it. Today I had an us (previous high risk pregnancy) we saw a hb and everything looked great. I wanted this pregnancy so bad and I knew I was happy but just felt numb. As I pulled into my parking garage I side swept the parked car next to me because I was in a fog. I navigate NYC traffic every day and never hit anything nevermind a parked car. Every one I tell says its the hormones. Anyone else feeling the same way?

No, but don't feel bad - there's a lot of up AND down swinging in early pg. Big hugs!

You're not alone, I'm an emotional basket case.

Depression during pregnancy is so normal, it is just never talked about. For a lot of mamas, it lifts after the first pregnancy, for some it doesn't.

Feel free to pm me.

not blue .... but grumpy, grumpy, grumpy!!!! Which, I guess, could be a manifestation of depression.

I feel kind of numb and just blah. I'm not sure it is depression, just an overall sense of not really caring about anything. I don't feel like doing anything either. I actually cried almost the entire drive to work this morning because I felt sick and my husband took such good care of me!

I feel much the same way: low, kind of numb, angry/grumpy much of the time. I dunno -- I hope it's the hormones. You want to be overflowing with love and warmth for the miniscule little being growing inside, and I have moments of that, but mostly I just feel a sense of burden right now (exhaustion, increasing nausea, secret to keep from the workplace, etc).

On the other hand, we had our first ultrasound this morning (6 weeks and 2 days along). And there it was: all 3mm of it, heart beating like a tiny beacon in the night. We even heard the heartbeat, because the clinic has such amazing technology.

We had the U/S as a final appointment with this fertility clinic we used to get me pregnant. I don't have any fertility challenges, but my spouse is a woman and we decided to use a fertility specialist for the IUI. So hence the early U/S when most people don't get one until 13 weeks. It was just a confirmation, but what a treat. It made me feel a little more connected to this overwhelming (numbing) reality.
