Depression during pregnancy

Hello, Iím almost 5 months pregnant and I have a really severe depression. Iím not the type of person who has lots of negative feelings and, also, my life is perfect: I have loving husband and perfect parents. Actually, I donít have anything to worry about. Some days ago I started to search about depression during pregnancy and I accidentally found an interesting article about how sleep is important to pregnant woman. After reading it, I started to wonder if my depression is because of lack of sleep. Or maybe sleep isnít main cause of depression and Iím suffering from Antenatal depression? Iím scared of talking to my husband about my condition and I donít want to take any antidepressants. What do you think? Should I try to regulate my sleep?

Yes, you should rest properly and maybe consider seeking help from a psychologist.
Because of being pregnant you can't take antidepressants. I think that going to therapy will help you to know the causes of it.
Maybe it is just a temporary mood swing because of hormonal changes.
You should tell your husband. He has the right to know how you feel and the duty of supporting you.
Don't feel afraid or ashamed of depression. x

Hello Proma:

Depression, confusion and fear during pregnancy is a common phenomenon. Around 40% of the pregnant women face this problem. During pregnancy, there will be hormone fluctuations which can affect the brain chemical. This action would lead to depression and anxiety. Sleep at least7-8 hours is must for everyone, especially for pregnant ladies. In this situation you should not take even pain killers which might affect the baby. So, could not imagine about anti-depressants. Better you consult your Gynec, explain about your depression and insomnia. There are many safe treatments are available say support groups, psychotherapy, light therapy. You start doing meditation, count from 100-1 while on the bed, read some comical story books. Take proper nutritious food, add omega 3-fatty acids. I pray God for your healthy delivery.

Most of the women go through this depressing phase during the pregnancy. During the fifth month of pregnancy your emotions and feelings are too closer to the surface. Therefore a few uncomfortable episodes are bound to happen. So basically you need to divert your attention and to initiate a meltdown think about the list of things that have to be done. Find new methods to cope up with anger and try and become more patient with things. All these emotional turmoil is happening because the pregnancy makes one lack patience. When I was expecting my first child, I was simply making issues out of nothing. My MIL and my neighbor were simply annoying to me before I got pregnant. And in 5th month, they became more and more intolerable and unbearable. I even asked my husband to tell his mother not to visit our house till I donít deliver the baby. My neighbor was always giving advices and I was just in no mood to hear her. And I told her upfront to just donít talk to me ever. But these were the wrong ways to deal with the situation I now realize if after I saw their support for me. My husband had to go to Houston and while he was in his flight my water broke. It was my neighbor who took me to the hospital and called up my MIL to take care of me. So you know you need to maintain the balance and take care of these petty things rather than involving yourself in fights. Yes try sleeping, it will help you.

Hi dear,
It is good that you have discovered that you are suffering from prenatal depression. Very few women can notice when they suffer from this problem. The trouble is that the depression is likely to affect the development of the fetus. It could also harm you if you donít take appropriate actions right away. Note that prenatal depression is a life-changing event and that as a mother it will restrict you a lot. So I would like to advise you to seek the following remedial actions:
Try as much as you can to relax and take things easy.
Spend a lot of time with your partner and if possible explain to him the changes you are going through. Let him know that you are depressed
Talk about your fears and share the details with your husband and friends.
I would also advise you to seek counseling services and if possible visit a doctor for medication.
Lastly, I would like to urge you never to take life seriously. Remain calm and donít worry too much
