ah ladies so sorry you're both feeling this way! I am exactly the same so can relate although not doing as good a job at hiding it as you! Im a single mum, found out I was pregnant with a VERY unexpected 4th in December and my OH walked out just in time for xmas and hasn't been back since, tbh he wasn't much support anyway and cheated numerous times over the years so Im used to doing it alone, but feeling down everyday and can't take much more! I wasn't too pleased when I found out i was pregnant which makes me feel awful as I was so excited with my other 3! Im so so scared about how ill cope, how it will affect my other girls, money, and selfish reasons, I was hoping to get some form of my life back as for the last 6 years its been all about the kids, (I don't have any support or breaks etc) only when my eldest is at school, but still have my 17 month old and my 4 year old half the days as she does 3 days nursery.

Im dreading it all and cry everyday wishing I was dead, was on 50mg citalopram (for the last 5 years) and was ok/borderline happy, until the pregnancy, theyve now swapped me onto 50mg sertraline but hasn't seemed to of helped. I just want to go back to enjoying my kids and looking forward to our future together, right now I feel trapped and desperate for an escape!

I hope you've been feeling better.

Does your doctor not want you on antidepressants during your pregnancy? My OB put me on a very low dose of sertraline during the 7th month of my last pregnancy and it was wondrous for me. I nursed successfully while on it as well.

Ive had some better days inbetween thank you for asking anxiety still very much there though. My doctor said its my decision and that obviously there are risks with everything you take.. in my mind i hear risk therefore i cannot bring myself to take that chance. I have 14 weeks left so im just going to try and power through if i can. Will take when nursing definitely even if the lowest dose its better than nothing i guess! X

Oh hun big hugs to you, it must of been such a tough few months for you, i am sorry you have had to go through this.
Sertaline can take a while to kick in how long have you been on them?
Sorry you are feeling so low aswel, i think we just need to try and hold on to that feeling of complete relief and overwhelming happiness once these babies are in our arms, all of a sudden everything makes sense and the pregnancy soon becomes a distant memory.. its just tough getting through it. I saw my therapist last week and i was in floods of tears because of the guilt of not feeling the same happy feelings towards this one as my others and that i almost feel like im serving a sentence, best way i could describe it !
