Hi, this is my 6th pregnancy, I have 3 children I had live births with. I have never really felt "depressed" in my life. I am in my second trimester, I has terrible nausea and migraines for the first 16 weeks, and was in the hospital 3 or 4 times getting IV b/c of this. My Grandmother, who I have always been very close to passed away this summer and just 6 weeks after her death my cousin who I grew up with was killed in a hit and run, he was only 22 years old. My husband has struggled with a pornography addiction in the past and I recently discovered he has looked at it at least once since I've been pregnant, (we are Christians and neither of us are OK with the use of pornography, so it's not something he feels is acceptable either). My husband also has an anger problem and yells very loud at me and sometimes the children too. He isn't physically abusive but I would say verbally abusive. We haven't been getting along lately and I find him very distant and not emotionally supportive during this pregnancy. I feel so alone and don't know where to turn. It's getting to the point the last few days I haven't been eating properly and have been having extremely low energy. Is this hormonal or situational? Should I be speaking with someone about all this? My midwife? My doctor?
Sorry to make this so long I worry about the effects on my unborn baby from my low mood and stress level.
