Mom to two beautiful boys, now in school to be a therapist and help other women with PPD.
Please talk to someone about what you are feeling. Yes, it sounds like depression, and yes! THere are safe treatments while pregnant and nursing. Please check out www.postpartum.net for resources in your area. Feeling inadequate is part of depression. It's not you. It's your brain and it's a chemical problem that can be fixed! Please talk to your doctor (be very, very, honest) or have your doctor refer you to a therapist.
You sound like you have many symptoms of depression. How are you sleeping? How are you eating? What is your energy like? I think I know the answers, but sometimes people aren't aware that depression is more than feeling "sad". So much more.
Please either take the quiz posted here and take it to your doctor, or find a therapist in your area who specializes in this type of depression. There are MANY safe medications in pregnancy and nursing. You do not have to feel this way.
