Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Depression during pregnancy is commonly seen in women and is due to high levels of progesterone that occur during pregnancy, also known as ‘pregnancy blues’. If worried, consider discussing your symptoms with your doctor/gynecologist and get started on treatment if needed (safe antidepressants) to control your symptoms. You may also consider taking counseling sessions to help you cope up with your symptoms and continue pregnancy smoothly. Avoid self-medication. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
