    Just wanted your opinion on whether you ladies thought what im experiencing is low mood/hormones or something else. Have had a constant cold since being 9 weeks pregnant and now its got really bad. Cant sleep for more than a couple of hours on a night and im exhausted. Kids are also ill which doesnt help. Was feeling really teary yesterday and woke up at 12:30 am this morning in tears and couldnt go back to sleep, mix of jake not being well and me unable to sleep. Well i have been in tears on and off all morning. Feeling like a total inconvinience and that hubby would be better off without me. Im so confused as i had post natal depression after having jake and just worried its something similar x

    Well your mum then, or a friend... There must be someone who an come and give you a lie in?

    I know exactly how your feeling, I had the same thing many times and it really was all about needing sleep and rest x

    I found when I was down in the dumps getting back in bed did me no favours at all as it just meant my mind would go into overdrive and I'd think too in depth about things and I became really irrational. How about trying doing something and making a day of it? Christmas decorations? Making a Christmas cake or even simple mince pies? Anything that keeps you from thinking about the bad stuff :) xxx
