I am on week 16 of my pregnancy. I have never been a depressed person but lately I feel it all the time. I have been so sick and still continue to be. I wake up every day and after four months of hospital ivs, zofran, phenegrin, reglan, no sleep and nothing working... well I think I just don't know if I can do this another five months. I can hardly eat, sleep, or function I just miss being normal. Every single day I am nausious, I start to worry that after I deliver I will still be sick and I just want to know this will all go away and that the sickness won't stay. Am I crazy? Will I get better? I just thought the sickness would get better in trimester 2????? I just want to enjoy this I want to be able to run errands and work again, I just want to wake up one day and not feel sick, emotionally it wears on you
Someone pleaase help

Depression during pregnancy
I know how you feel, fortunately I only had sickness for 4 weeks, however going to bed every night, knowing that I was going to wake up being sick and then feeling nausious for the rest of the day was horrific, not knowing how long it was going to last was the worst thing. Thankfully I am past that now, however I am now at 18 weeks and feel numb, empty, irratible, I'm not coping with anything although I am usually a very strong person, the only thing that stops me crying is the pain I get from my stomach, which I'd like to think is the babies way of telling me to cheer up. How mad??? I feel like I'm loosing my mind, it sounds horrible, but it's comforting to know that I'm not the only person in the world going through this. All you can really do is trust, know yourlself and trust yourself, you will get through it. The only thing that made my sickness easier was getting up earlier, giving myself to clean my teeth then have a sit down, brush my hair, then sit down. Rushing around was the biggest killer for me. Giving myself time helped a little so I could have a minutes rest between doing things. Smile through it and trust yourself x
