    Anyone else feeling it? I'm 7wks. My situation isn't great and the pregnancy wasn't planned, but I wondered if it was normal to feel so bad. :(

    I felt awful due to an awkward situation and unplanned pregnancy first time round so the first trimester went by in a blur of sadness really! I also don't think hormones & emotions being so heightened help much either around this time before they level off. Chin up, it'll get better & if you are really worried, talk to your midwife and/or GP :)

    hi,

    i suffer really badly with depression and anxiety, its constant arguments with my other half, pregnancy wasnt planned but im over the moon. OH not so and when we argue or he is drunk he tells me he doesnt want the baby and to get rid of it - the end of the day if i had to chose i would chose my baby over him anyday - but these arguments have a huge effect on me the next day.

    i cant financially afford to do it on my own but i would do anything i could to make this baby happy and proud.

    some days i feel amazing others i feel like i cant get out of bed xxx

    I suffer with anxiety and depression as well. baby was planned but oh has freaked out told everyone that it wasn't planned and that he doesn't want the baby. I'm hoping he will come round buy it's very awkward at the moment and I'm pretty much doing it on my own. I told him I won't get rid of it and if he doesn't like it he can leave. I'm going to tell my midwife on Friday at my booking in and I plan on doing pregnancy yoga once I get to 14 weeks to try and relax me xx

    Aww ladies, I'm sorry you're all feeling this way too. My situation is a little different to most of yours. I have only been with my boyfriend for a few months. He wants to be with me and move in together, whereas I'm struggling as I have never felt as strongly about him. So i just feel like all of my options are bad ones. It's really not great to be feeling like this at a time when we should be so happy and excited.

    I saw a doctor this morning who has referred me for counselling. I'm also making an appointment with a free counselling service, specialising in pregnancy/depression. When can you start pregnancy yoga? I really need to find a class.

    there should be some options on the NCT website, i typed in my postcode and the classes came up. mine were from 12 weeks but i registered at 8 weeks as there was a 6 week wait, did my first class last week at 15 weeks.

    i really hope you find a coping mechanism, there is one its just finding the right one for you!

    everyday is different, had a really nice night with the OH and he was saying he was excited and was laughing and joking with me so today im really positive, until he next has a drink and then says he regrets everything.

    i have been with this 2n half years i dont trust him 100% due to my past he is 43 and im only 25 but im determined to make it work :)
