I am afraid to tell my doctor about the depression that I feel during this pregnancy. Its weird, because right now I am trying to be strong. I have tried so hard to be a good mom, but I just don't know what to do.

My EX boyfriend is a depressed alcoholic awaiting treatment. and I am starting to be depressed and a bit anxious. I don't have any friends cause I spent all of my time trying to help him. I just don't know how to stop these feelings.

My ex said that he wants to 'be there' when she's born. His mom has made my life hell. She's made it really hard for me during the pregnancy. I asked my ex to move some of his stuff so I can make room for the baby. His mom calls me yelling at me telling me not to bother him. Meanwhile I have all of his stuff in the way.

I am so scared that I am not going to make it with a baby. I just don't know how to make ends meet and how to get motivated. I am scared to tell my doctor or anyone about negitive thoughts i have because my ex is related to the doctor and I don't want to be dubbed as an unfit mom.

The hard thing is is that I am so excited and so darn scared. I am scared that him and his parents are going to ruin my life with this baby. I just need help to get strong and get rid of the saddness and fear I feel.
