i did also when i was pregnant i had alot of out burst and then crying that is all i really did when i was pregnant was crying and alot of depression i talked to my dr and he had put me on prozac and it helped alot... but i stopped taking them after my first trimester cause i didn't want her to be addicted to the med so.... i am 3 weeks postpardum and still have my days where all i want to do is cry... i am hoping with time that it will fade..

my husband is in the army and deployed to iraq 3 days after our son was born. we had also just recently moved to a new home and are pretty much away from most of our family and friends. i went to the doctor and he placed me on medication. as much as i hate having to be medicated it's been a real help. i no longer lay around crying at the drop of a hat, and my house is actually clean :)

My husband is in the Navy. We found out I was pregnant with our 4th child 3 days after we relocated to our new station. I was devastated! Not only were we in a strange place with no friends or family, but my youngest was only 7 months old when I found out. I thought it was unfair to her and that I wasn't going to be able to handle another one so close in age. I am getting better now...in my first trimester I had morning sickness on top of being depressed and honestly just wanted to stay in bed all day and cry. Now that I'm in my second trimester I stiill am worried, but I don't have an overwhelming sadness anymore.

I had a little towards the end of my pregnancy, we had moved, my step son was into trouble, and my husband was newly unemployed. Its not fun. I dont know if I can help much other then offer a ear and a shoulder. And advice not to make any big moves. Take it slow, especailly with the surprise.
