I have been so tense and on the verge of tears for most of the pregnancy. I know that some of it is hormonal (I can pinpoint the start of AF by my irritability during PMS) and I know that some of it is hormonal, but OMG- it's really starting to get to me and makes me wonder. I've heard of post-partum depression obviously, but this feels like it might go beyond "just" hormones of pregnancy. Can you get "partum-depression?" I had high bp with my first and I was working full time (8th grade math teacher) and honestly, I feel more stressed out with this one. In this third trimester I feel like if I don't get my emotions under control, I'm going to end up in the same boat and the hbp really affected my labor/birth.
