I can't help but feel depressed, not really about specifically the pregnancy but just in general. My family and friends are so excited for me, but I can't help but feel so alone. There is a growing distance between my husband and I, and he doesn't even try to change. I love my baby and can't wait to for him to be here. I just can't help but feel he is supposed to be the only man in my life.

I am pregnant in my 3rd trimester and am having very bad depression. Feeling lonely even when with people, sad, overwhelmed. I feel like I am stuck and have no release. My husband and I were drifting apart. I started to see my therapist and that really helped. I started to share how I was feeling and what my therapist said at the appointments and it has really helped him understand. I have 3 other children and he has really started helping a lot more. Sleep makes my mood worse. I also have been talking to my OBGYN. I hope this helps. Hang in there.

No one cares but me
I'm also in my 3rd trimester and there has been alot of family drama on his side that has just completely ruined my pregnancy. No one seems to care or be concerned at all about the stress they are putting on me. I have a 2yr old, I work fulltime and I go to college fulltime. I get no support at home, I'm expected to be super mom and do everything. My babies father has no interest at all in the new baby, he doesnt want to talk about it or even feel her move in my belly. He went to every Drs appointment with my first child and this one hasnt gone to one, not even the ultrasound. I feel like I'm going threw this totally alone and I am completely exhausted. I've actually thought about having an abortion or leaving with my 2yr old just to get away from all of them. They don't care anyways so why not.

I'm in my third trimester, I can't sleep, my eating patterns are all messed up, and no one even see's how truly depressed I am. I love my baby boy and I can't wait to meet him and hold him. I feel like he's the only thing that will make me better. My baby's father doesn't seem to care if he hurts my feelings. No one cares how much they use me. The people who havent made themselves a part of my pregnancy blame me for "purposely excluding them" I'm getting too tired to work 6 days a week on my feet, when does it end? Am I depressed because of some pregnancy side effect or am I just plain depressed and people just don't care to notice because I'm pregnant.
