Depression symptoms pregnant women

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms pregnant women


Avatar f tn Losing interest in doing things, lethargy and lack of appetite are all classic symptoms of depression. I recommend that you talk to your doctor about this. I can tell you to just get up and do something but I know that is so hard if you are really depressed. Hormones in pregnancy can cause some women to be depressed. So, talk to your doctor. If you can exercise, it really does help. It releases a happy hormone in the brain that fights stress.
1564367 tn?1296001270 The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and hold your head steady. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently. Age over 15 years -do this for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Age under 15 years -do this for 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.

Avatar n tn Hypothyroidism has the same symptoms as ppd? I didnt know that. What were your symptoms? I just get really emotional at times (like pms times 1 million). I miss my baby horribly, and I cry at the drop of a hat. This is why I thought it may be PPD.
Avatar f tn I have a history of depression/mood swings and was on meds prior to getting pregnant. I stopped those meds when i got pregnant and the problem got a little worse...after giving birth i got to a point where all i wanted to do was cry, i felt worthless, overwhelemed etc. I asked my doc to give me something. I am currently taking Zoloft..I chose that becuase I am breastfeeding and Zoloft has the best reputation for having minimal amounts in the breastmilk ..
644974 tn?1312761670 last month i had my mirena iud removed as we wanted to try for a little girl, we had intercourse 2 days before ovulation to increase the chance of concieving a baby girl, its now 11 days post possible conception and im feeling sick and very tired all the time is it possible im pregnant? can some women feel sick this early? and also do you think the chances of the baby being a girl are high?
Avatar f tn The best thing I've seen is to not read into everything. I've seen many women fall into deep depression because they look into every symptoms and sign and immediately assume pregnancy. I wish I could offer more advice, but I myself have never been in this situation. Is your doctor doing anything else for you?
299260 tn?1304219705 ) You know what aggrivates me?! Last week, 2 pregnant women came to the winery with a friend and they BOTH drank and smoked the ENTIRE time they were there! :( Don't they know what a blessing they have??! Uugh... it's just sad, and so unfair to that baby!! :( All the wait staff were just fuming b/c it's just upsetting to see that!!! I just wanted to rush up to them and say " Don't you realize what you're doing can cause still birth, among other health risks?!!!
299260 tn?1304219705 I was sooo sick when I was pregnant, and took medicine constantly not knowing I was pregnant! The first 3 months are the most important, but those little ones stay tough! Good luck to you! Don't get discouraged if your test on Sunday is -ve, because it will still be early, but it is a good start date to test! :) Keyan- You're welcome! I'm always checking on my friends! :) I'm so glad af still hasn't shown for you! That's a great sign that your temps are still up too!!!
299260 tn?1304219705 Hey, it just occurred to me, maybe I'll be pregnant in 4 weeks...
299260 tn?1304219705 things are VERY stressful. I am still battleing with major depression when I think about taking Shelby to daycare. Tomorrow we are supposed to meet with the lady again. :( On top of that DH just filed for short term disability. He has back issues and this last weekend he sneezed and something popped in his back. Now he has shooting pain going down his leg affecting his entire right side. I have no idea what we are going to do!
480331 tn?1310407129 Have any of you heard, that now part of your regular OB appts, Drs will be screening for signs of depression? SO SMART. So many women suffer from mild to severe cases of depression, and once they become pregnant, mixed with hormones, isn't a happy cocktail. Also, post partum is so easily fixed, yet so hidden from many new Moms...please talk to someone if you have the baby blues, or feel is only minutes away!
Avatar n tn ) Well than if you had symptoms of depression prior to taking the Prozac and you go off them, those symptoms can naturally come back.
Avatar f tn I have been ill since giving birth with a number of scary symptoms, I am still experiencing my symptoms and still have not found answers. My boyfriend seems to believe it is Post Natal Illness rather than depression because the symptoms are physical and only occured after the birth. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I have stopped asking my doctor, health visitor etc... for help because they can't help.
Avatar f tn I have a question about depression after abortion. I'm 16 years old and I had a non-surgical abortion about 2 months ago. I was 7 weeks and 1 day pregnant. And now its been killing me :( I didn't know the causes of emotional pain people have before I had it. The dad is my boyfriend that I've been with for almost 3 years. He's 19 years old.He was such a sweetheart, but after I messed our relationship up, everything went bad.
Avatar n tn at 6 weeks but my body kept thinking it was pregnant and I went on till 10 weeks with symptoms. One night I just sat in my bed and told my husband that I wasn't pregnant anymore. I didn't feel it. Of course he thought I was being hysterical but next morning...I woke up bleeding. ONe of the most horrible things I've ever gone through. Chavela...little by little you adjust...I still cry for my baby once in awhile..but I know the little angel is in heaven doing his job....
Avatar f tn Getting off Yaz may solve your depression. Actually I just read you have a mild history of depression. You also said you haven't taken any medication for your depression. Okay. I would make an appointment with your family doctor . Is your doctor aware of your mild history of depression? If not, it sounds like it's time to tell your doctor. I have a history of mild depression myself. In my case, it's hereditary.
7052683 tn?1392942395 Through reading I came to find out that we sometimes become alcoholics because we are self -medicating for another mental imbalance --like (for me) Depression. When you stop you have withdrawal symptoms , yes, but they sometimes are related to the need for medication to resolve the serotonin imbalance in your brain. For me I worked with an addiction couselor and she advised me to see the doctor about anti-depressants. WOW what a difference.
Avatar m tn Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently. Anulom Vilom pranayam – Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril. This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Avatar f tn It is quite common for women who have symptoms of depression before the pregnancy to continue to have them during the pregnancy, and to have a "flare" post partum. It sounds to me like your OB has been doing her reading, and is up to date with her knowledge. If you were my patient, I would also try a taper, but would have a low threshhold to re-start the medication if necessary at any point during the pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Hi there; I also suffer with anxiety and depression, so i can totally understand how you feel. I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make anxiety temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well.
Avatar n tn I finally got to post!! I have been experiencing severe withdrawal/depression the last few days, so much that I have found myself crying on a few occasions, I have been feeling like there is no way out of this awful life style, and if I get close to being clean, I get scared when I think of leading a sober life..... I can't handle it anymore, I lie to everyone, I hurt everyone and I waste all my godamn money on drugs, what the hell is the point?
Avatar n tn By that time I had already developed 36 of the 40+symptoms of PTLS. PVCs/palpitations were one of my worse symptoms. To the point of going to the ER several days in a row because they were pretty much constant. I was referred to a cardiologist had EKG, ECG, and holter monitor, chest x-ray and blood work and all were normal only thing they could find was dehydration.
Avatar f tn From the research I have done, this affects a small percentage of women but you are not alone. My symptoms were different but if you look up prenatal or antenatal depression you can check your symptoms. You should already be doing things to treat it like exercising (walking) and good diet and lots of rest through regular prenatal care. So to still feel down when you are doing everything right warrants that conversation with the Dr. They can give medication but counseling has been very helpful.
Avatar n tn In regards to your daughter, I have done a lot of research on PCOS and have discovered that through trying to figure out the right methods of treatment, while still experiencing PCOS symptoms and if someone is trying to conceive, dealing with not being able to get pregnant; all together can cause anxiety and depression.
363243 tn?1331037450 I was just diagnosed with PCOS although I've had symptoms of it since I was 12 (hirsutism) and I am now 36. My hirsutism was diagnosed as idiopathic because the testing I had did not indicate an elevated testosterone level. I don't know if the testing is more sophisticated now but I had new testing done and it did indicate that my free weak testosterone was elevated. Anyway, I have a few hairs under my chin, a lot on my neck, chest, stomach, and inner thighs. I know...
