Thanks ladies, just so depressed and down at the moment. Chris and my mum are worried about me and I'm terrified it's not going to go away at twelve weeks. I can't do this for another 6 months I'd rather die

Aww Viv I'm worried about you now too! I remember what a rough time you went through after Callum was born. Just try try try to focus on all the positive and take as much help/support you can get. There is light at the end of the tunnel! There just has to be!

So have pre-natal depression, whoopee!
The earliest appt they could get me at Mothers and babies is in a month!

My own fault as i halved my meds and was slack in taking them regularly so must blame myself. I have up times and down times every day now. Waiting for the ups to beat the downs.

I stopped the Zofran and took up with cyclizine which is like being stoned would feel I imagine (never tried weed), it works but I can't move, drive, function and forget work. I've been signed off for another month on no pay.

Good grief I went from so happy five weeks ago to hiding in my bedroom 24/7.

Why is this so hard? I am so angry and disappointed with myself right now as normally I am a strong, focused person, now brought to my knees by a touch of normal morning sickness.

Anyway depressive rant over, how is everyone else now I've brought us down?


The things we do for babies

I too struggle w depression and just began treating mine in November. The meds make a world of difference so talk w your docs about what you can safely take ; don't be off anything that you don't have to !

Today was a bad day I was begging not to be pregnant. Everything upsets me and I so scared of being sick that I don't want to eat or drink.
Poor Chris is raising Callum alone as I just can't care for him.
Why is this so hard, please god let it end soon as I am terrified of being ill for 6 months, I know I won't survive and neither will my marriage

Oh Viv! I am so sorry. I hope that the rest of your weekend went ok. While I didn't have depression during my pregnancy, I was very sick to the point that I did not do anything. My hubby did most of the things with Katelyn. He bathed her, fed her, got her dressed most days, and played with her. That was on top of keeping her at home with him all day. When she had to go to daycare theo nly thing I did was drive her. We would get home and I would literally lie on the couch and just watch her (I would feed her) until my hubby got home. I promise it will not last the rest of the pregnancy. You will stop being sick and you will get energy and appetite back.

You still are that strong person and you will survive and so will your marriage. Marriage is NEVER 50/50. It is more like 70/30 and sometimes 90/10. Please rant, ping us on BNB and or Facebook if you need to talk, cry, or want a good laugh. I will ping you on FB with my number and we can always chat via messenger on FB.

LOVE YOU!!!!

Awww Viv. I hope things get better for you! Can your doctor not prescribe you something safe for the nausea and depression? You shouldn't have to feel this way.

Viv I agree with Chris and Steph! We are always here!! Just keep communicating. Keep breathing. One day at a time.

What does your dr. say regarding meds? Did they ever try the larger dose (8mg) Zofran for you? How about anti-D's?

I am on anti d's and have been for 20 years, but stupidly as soon as I feel better I cut back on dose which normally is fine but with the morning sickness and stress I went downhill fast. My biggest fear in life is vomiting and I have had numerous counseling sessions and therapy over the years to deal with it. Normally I can keep myself from panicking too much when I feel sick but not when pregnant. I am also a bit of an agorophonbic so I try anything not to leave the house at the moment.

They have upped my anti d's dosage which will kick in soon and I am on Zofran and cyclizine for the nausea, a mild anti anxiety med for that and am getting emergency psych counseling.

It is so embarrassing that I let myself get so low so fast when I know all my triggers so well.

I am feeling better though and can look after Callum a bit better but it'll take time.

Thank you all for the love, I don't know what I would do if I couldn't confide in someone outside my family.
