Im currently 30 weeks pregnant and this week i have noticed that my depression and anxiety are at an all time high. This is the first time all pregnancy that im feeling this way. I constantly feel like im on the verge of crying and i have many panic attacks a day. I just feel like im never happy anymore. I just would like to know if anyone else is feeling the same way i am because ive never been pregnant before this and im not sure if this is normal or not :(

My emotions are all over the map so I get it. I have some anxiety, some depression, and a trigger for tears at the littlest things. What you're feeling is normal. If it gets too bad that you feel you cannot cope, talk to your ob or midwife about it and they can prescribe you something. I'm not on any medication for my symptoms but I go to therapy weekly.

I have panic disorder - I get random panic attacks and don't have/know a causal element. I only get them once or twice a year at most. When I was pregnant with my first, though, they ramped up to DAILY. I ended up starting an SSRI and they stopped. If you have a history of anxiety and/or depression, do know you are at about a three fold risk for developing PPD. Don't ignore your symptoms. Hormones are taking over your body and sometimes they get the better of you. :D Hang in there! Let your doctor or midwife know. You're not alone and there are things that can help dramatically!
