I don't recall experiencing this with previous pregnancies, but I have felt so down and, I guess, depressed the past few days and I can't seem to snap out of it. Usually, if I am in a funk, I can kind of get myself out of it, or my kids do something funny or sweet and I feel better, but it seems like I'm just stuck.
Has anyone experienced this at all? I'm assuming it is hormonal, because it is very abnormal for me to be depressed, but it kind of feels beyond my ability to just "cheer up," if you know what I mean.
It could be slightly situational because I have a lot on my plate right now (but who doesn't?). Still, I really dislike feeling this way. I know my husband can tell, and it is annoying him. I have so much work to do, but I just want to sit and stare or sleep or something. It's craziness.
I really hate to even admit this, but I haven't even been excited about the baby lately. I'm not really enjoying getting bigger and bigger, and I'm overwhelmed by the thought of having another little one to care for.
Ugh! I feel like a terrible person. I know children are a blessing. I don't even know what I'm looking for here....I just thought maybe it would help a little to get it out and share this.
