Hey everyone.  How are you today?  I am depressed today.  I am frustrated, saddened, powerless, and miserable.  I am 34 weeks along and big as an ox; my whole body swells, my stomach stays upset and I constantly feel nauseated and I am to the point that I am always tired and feel bad.  I am still fainting quite a bit; I am now whining.  Sorry.
It is just that everyone, and I mean everyone, including my dh, gets on my nerves now.  Constantly.  I can't stand to be around anyone anymore.  I just want to crawl into bed and stay there away from everything and eveyone.  But I get uncomfortable pretty quick because I am so big and can only sleep for an hour or so before I have to make a bathroom run or my limbs get numb or my back hurts.  I have a body pillow that I hug and wrap around and it use to help but now nothing helps.
My dh is always asking what is wrong (because he cares, I know) but well, you know, I am pregnant and I am depressed, etc.  I just feel like I am at my whits end here.  I just want to scream.
I want my baby to be born healthy and happy but at the same time, I am so ready for this to end.  I enjoyed my first pregnancy very much.  This time I haven't enjoyed any of it because of all the complications and I don't feel connected to my baby like I did my first one.  That is so sad!!
OK, so I have vented and whined enough.  I just want to feel better.  I don't want to be depressed or feeling sorry for myself.  I know it is all situational right now but still...
Thanks for listening, again.  Hugs.

Aw, ((((big hug)))) for you hun.  It's funny because I am feeling exactly the way are except that I'm not pregnant.  The depression is overwhelming tonight.  And it's all thanks to a bit of stress that I'm feeling this way.  I was feeling stable over the weekend, then BAM!!  No more.....

I definitely think you should pamper yourself.  I know it's hard sometimes when you feel a bit huge to pamper and feel wonderful.  I can relate to that as well.  But I think you should try.  You and the baby deserve it.

Isn't depression wonderful?  You have a little miracle inside of you and this cloud just won't let up?  Well, just remember that that is all it really is.  A cloud that will go away eventually. 

I hope you are feeling better soon.  And I apologize if none of this makes any sense.  I am very, very depressed right now.

Take care,

Thanks mogli. I really needed to know that someone relates and understands. Yeah, this cloud really stinks. It is stealing my joy.

I haven't pampered myself in a long time. It would be nice and a good distraction right now.

Thanks a lot. Hugs to you too. Get feeling better soon.
