Is depression normal in first trimester?

Mrs - posted on 09/04/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




I am 10 weeks pregnant.. The nausea is killing me... I throw up on an average 10 times a day...sometimes I have a good day in the middle but generally it's hell...the husband is in US while m in Malaysia.. Which is well a new hell in itself

The main problem is this depression I get into.. I just want to constantly curl up n my bed and cry.... I know he is not doing it on purpose but I am beginning to resent my baby for putting me throw hell.. I don't even know how to bring it up with anyone;friends or family lest they think of me as a bad mother.....but I can do this ...please someone tell me this gets better...............

I agree with Erin you should not be throwing up 10 times a day, there is medication for it. Don't feel bad for feeling this way your emotions are running high. Under your circumstances you are allowed to feel down you are not a bad mother you are just having a hard time. Even if you weren't sick very day you might want to curl up in a ball and cry and that's okay I did it and many other pregnant woman have done it. I cried every day with joy, fear, and sadness. I worried about everything and I would cry about it. Please talk to your family, friend, husband don't deal with this alone. You need an outlet and a shoulder to cry on just cry it out love you will feel better. Talk to someone anyone. IT WILL GET BETTER. When you hold your little baby all this feeling of doubt will be gone.

Bets of luck

get in touch with your doctor they may be able to help you out by perscribing something to help with the nausia. also small meals every couple of hours. if that means crackers and soup broth that is what it means. i hope this helps even a little bit
