Hi, I am 26 weeks pregnant and i am so depressed idk whats wrong with me. this is my fourth pregnancy and it was unplanned my oldest child is 18yrs youngest 10 yrs. my husband is tired dealing with me and what i'm goiong through i don't let him touch me or kiss me or hold me. honestly the sound of his voice or even his presence makes me sick. when he's home i stay away from him. he tries so hard to make me happy. I'm on medical leave from work right now because this pregnancy is so hard. when he's at work i miss him and i feel so bad for what i put him threw. and i sit and cry and even send him text messages begging him to forgive me. But when he get's home and i hear his voice i get depressed again.is it because i'm pregnant that i feel like this? Help me! what can i do? and does this phase usually pass as the weeks go by? i'm just so tired of putting him through this.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe suggest possibility of pregnancy induced depression (also called Pregnancy blues). If the symptoms have been affecting your daily life and your personal relations, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. Based on the evaluation results, medications (safe ones that can be used during pregnancy) would be started to help you. Counseling sessions would also help you to cope up with your symptoms and carry on with pregnancy smoothly.
