Today I have just wanted to lie on my couch and do nothing, having nothing to do with my children (good luck) and just generally be left alone. I don't wish anyone would call me on the phone, I don't wish I had social plans, I don't even want to watch TV. I just want everyone and everything to leave me alone.<br><br>
Anyone else?

I'll be honest, I've pretty much been in bed ever since I found out about the twins. I'm exhausted, which I can deal with-- I have 4 kids, so exhuastion is nothing new, LOL!-- but I'm also extremely lethargic and apathetic, which is new to me. There's stuff I have to do that I just can't make myself care about doing. It seems like every last tiny ounce of energy I have is going into these babies and I don't have a whole lot leftover for anything else. I've told myself that on Monday I need to suck it up and get back into life, so we'll see how that goes.<br><br>
I hope it's just a one day thing for you and you're able to get the rest you need and feel better soon.

Oh yes. Me too. I have a history of depression, and I'm not on medication at the moment, so I assumed my lack of interest and constant lethargy/sleepiness was mostly due to me just 'being me'. But maybe this is one of the many mysteries of pregnancy that I need to embrace - sort of. I'm sorry you guys are feeling low. If I could, I'd come over right now and make us all walk around the block in the sunshine, and then I'd buy us ice cream. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

I've been feeling low lately, too. Part of it is probably my history of depression, and part I think is being so tired and nauseated all the time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">s all around

Me too, I'm blaming it on feeling so darn crummy and eating so terribly. I'm hoping the energy, enthusiasm, and happiness returns soon.

I have a history of depression as well, and was actually in the middle of a relapse when I found out I was pregnant. No health care and therefore no meds, so it's been tough. A walk around the block in the sunshine and ice cream sounds like a nice way to chase the blues away for a bit! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug">

I had someone suggest I was depressed, especially after two miscarriages. I don't know if that's it though. I don't feel depressed. Just really overwhelmed. And it doesn't help that the house is trashed. Who wants to get up to clean a mess they didn't make?

I have a history of depression and feeling like crap for 2-3 weeks has not helped my mood at all. I am doing ok, just no motivation to do anything (but hang out on the computer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I have had some horrible stomach virus for 8 days, so hopefully that will go away soon. Although, I am strongly suspecting we don't have a virus, but maybe a food borne bacterial infection.

I'm with you there. My house had moved over to the side of things where it starts to actually depress me to look around. So yesterday I made everyone clean up, but really they're all pretty useless and I just have to do the majority of it myself. I hate cleaning up with a 2-year old running around behind me undoing all my good work.<br><br>
I'm feeling a bit better so far today. I have some things planned and I'm not wishing that I could just sit at home and do nothing, so that's good.

I feel so much better today. It's really strange. I feel normal. Yesterday was such a blah day. And there's honestly nothing different. I often am able to trace my bad moods with my children back to annoyance with my husband for not being more helpful or just generally being unappreciative, but he's been no different today than any other and I feel just fine, energetic, not yelling at my kids, etc. It's got to be the hormones. They are strange things.

I def. felt like that last week. The house being a mess, having no energy and being nauseated all the time too a toll on my mental health. I have felt so much better over the past 36 hours, which has really put me in a better mood.

Me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'm going to see my counselor tomorrow. Haven't been in almost a year, but I really need the support. I think it's a combination of situational depression and hormones.
