Okay I just don't know what my problem is! I have a wonderful hubby, we just bought a house, and we are having a baby after our first try! Im so blessed in my life right now, but during the day sometimes, Ill just randomly get "hit" with an overwhelming feeling of sadness and I'll just want to lay there, sad and almost apathetic about everything else. Its such a strong feeling, it almost seems tangible. Ugh what on earth is going on? I notice the feeling hits me sometime when I'm rubbing my bump, and sometimes for nothing I can connect it to at all. I won't even be thinking about anything. This is my first pregnancy btw and my mommy and family lives 8 hours away. We just moved away a little less than a year ago for hubby to get a great job straight out of college. I know we won't be here any more than 5 more years, cause hubby promised we would try to head back. I know thats one reason I would be sad, but Im not even thinking about this 99% of the time I feel so sad.
Does anyone else experience this?
its probably just hormones as the op said. however keep an eye on it as you could have antenatal depression. Have a look on google and if you think thats you, you can get councilling just like for PND.
I have this, sometimes it can last for a day and even when I realise what's happening I can't pull myself out. Sometimes it helps to talk about it or just cry but dh is getting a bit fed up with it and my family is 300 miles away.
My hubby is now at the point where he thinks I need to just snap out of it. (He's still nice about it though) He thinks Im being silly and conjuring it up, but it seriously just hits me out of nowhere! Im not trying to feel that way at all!
It is annoying when they just don't get it. I had pms but this is like 50 times worse. Its a bit like I've got all these extra hormones flying around and dh expects me to be happy allll the time? You'll be ok, break out the icecream and DVDs until you feel better.
