So here is a little background.. I have been at my job now for 5 years. I love it here. I work with wonderful, supportive people and many of them are my friends outside of work. Currently, we are a single-income family, mine. Hubs has been out of work for about 4 months now. Lately (I guess since knowing I'm pregnant) whenever I get to work, I just want to cry! I handle stress quite well & I have been primarily self sufficient/independent my adult life but I just feel so overwhelmed now. I know it is normal to be emotional and even normal to experience some depression while pregnant but at what point should that go away or get easier? My SO is completely supportive and does all he can to alleviate stress from me but I can't help it, as soon as I walk into work I want to break down. When I am home, it's not as bad (probably because I am sleeping so much - which I don't like either). Is anyone else currently or with previous pregnancies experienced this? I know there is no magic cure but some insight would be nice. I have my first appt. on Wednesday and I plan to bring up my concerns then as well.
Gah.. I'm even crying as I write this! I want so bad for it to go away and "be normal" again. Then I get caught up in "I know this is part of being pregnant, just suck it up and bare thru it" because I'm trying SO HARD to be positive this pregnancy. My first one, my daughter was stillborn at 7months (07/2012) so I'm trying not to hate being pregnant this time & wondering if some of my fears and anxiety are from my previous loss. I just don't know what to do with all these emotions! All I do is cry or sleep.
Any advice mamas?
Also... I'm 28, getting married in 11 days and I am 12 weeks along. Thanks for listening...
