Hi! And Welcome to the forums. Congratulations on your new marriage and your pregnancy.
Are you taking a good prenatal?? There is one called Prenatal Forte from NFormula that has some really great herbs added in. It is SOOO important to be getting enough Vit Bs while pregnant.
I always loved being pregnant because it was the only time when I was NOT depressed. That is...until my last pregnancy. I had stopped taking care of myself, stopped exercising, and stopped taking my prenatals some time during the pregnancy previous to that one.
I had the worst post-partum depression I'd ever had that lasted for 2 years and then it took another 3 to come out of it fully. I still have occassional hormonal bouts with it...but it is hormonal and I recognize it and I'm able to deal with it much better. I know, now, that my body was really depleted of the B Vitamins.
It might be one way that you can support your body during this time. As the weather gets better and the sun is shining, even just getting outside and sitting on the patio while you read would be a good thing. Vit D is so helpful with depression.
Definitely do some stepping. Try not to think about it too much. I know it's hard. But you WILL get through this. The days will pass. Start a "gratefulness" journal. Look for 3 things each day that you can add to the list. By the time the baby comes, you may be surprised at just how many things you were able to write down. (Number them)
Come back here as often as you can. This is a GREAT group for encouragement and support.
