    Were you taking any meds before the pregnancy? And have to get off bc of being pregnant? Just know your hormones are completely out of wake and your emotions are all over the place. I know your pregnant but have you thought if mediation or yoga. Or go and see a therapist just to talk things out.you need as much support as you can get so I hope you have a good support system like family and friends. I know how it fees to have a great life and nothing to be depressed about but it's us and we have to try and change the way we think. But remember your hormones are out of control and that is probably making it was worse than what it really. I'm sorry your going through all this but it will pass you just need to do some heathy activities to keep your mind preoccupied

      Do whatever is going to be good for you. If staying with your mom makes you more comfortable to have that support constantly then do it.i realized now that I am 29 it doesn't matter how old we are our parents are they to help. Maybe you need to see a psychologist and they can recommend some things for you. You are not alone and the more anxious and depressed you are the more it makes you think something is really wrong with you. It's all in your head and I do that to my self constantly. I don't have children so I could only imagine you will be ok just seek help before it gets worse!! We are all here to talk if needed

    Hi Shaunie

    i am so sorry you are feeling this way.  Do you have any support parents, siblings, friends.  So hard to do it on your own. I gather you are not on any meds because of your pregnancy.  Can you speak with your dr?  You are going through a very tough time (break up with your boyfriend doesn't help).  I hope you are able to get some support soon.  My heart aches for you and you can pm me anytime.

    I think you need to talk to your GP. I was really bad during pregnancy and after 20 weeks I was put on amitriptyline (an older anti-depressant which has been tested on pregnant women more). It made me feel better and did no harm whatsoever to my daughter who is now 9 years old. I was also put on tranquillisers to help calm me down. i know it's all personal choice, but I know that the stress I was putting my unborn baby through was probably worse than any effects from anti-depressants.

    Hi shaunie,very sorry to hear that your feeling this way!.OK do you have a close friend who you can trust? How about your parents? Have you had reflexology ¬Ņ this is very good for anxiety. Try and think positive thoughts. Otherwise your stress will not be doing your baby any good.Do you have a good doctor?regards Amanda

    My gp wouldn't prescribe it to me, I had to be referred to a psychiatrist who researched into the effects of anti-depressants. She also prescribed me the tranquillisers. You could ask your GP to refer you to nhs mental health team, or even better if you have private healthcare go see a psychiatrist privately.......

    So many of us have been where you are. You obviously need help from your GP and I'm not sure he is being that helpful...... Have you tried any alternative treatments? Hypnotherapy, acupuncture etc???
