Mood swings can just be a part of pregnancy but if you feel sad a lot it might be worth a GP visit as some women suffer from depression before the birth and there is help out there.
It depends why you're sad though as it can be normal to have mixed feelings with your first as its a huge change to your lifestyle and even if you really want the baby it can make you a little sad sometimes thinking about what you're giving up and with the fluctuating hormones on top of that its not unusual to find yourself in floods of tears and to not even know why
Plus pregnancy isn't very comfortable for a lot of women , with the backache and the growing bump, and heartburn and trouble sleeping ,so not all women enjoy actually being pregnant , maybe a bit of a pamper if you feel like that will help ?xx

I agree with nat.
Sometimes we are led to believe that pregnancy is amazing, you should bloom from 2nd trimester, you get a wave of love when you first see your baby etc etc. Some people just don't - don't beat yourself up about it, you are not alone.
Let your midwife or GP know how you feel and be honest. I felt the same as you in my first pregnancy and unfortunately wasn't listened to because I need stress how I felt and became quite ill blaming myself and thinking I was alone. Pregnancy is scary and having massive impending life changes can be daunting. This time I see someone once a week to make sure that although I am not enjoying the pregnancy I do not blame myself for it.

Im on my third pregnancy an suffered depression with both my girls, this time I have pushed that I dont want this to happen to me again. You really do have to tell them everything an how you feel an not feel embarrassed cos this can happen to alot of women an they see it all the time.
You will be offered help an see a specialist doc like i am this time.
Good luck x

Jelsoo I would open a new post for this, as others wont see what you've put. If you go to 'pregnancy problems' and start a new post from there.
I really have no experience at all with whats happened to you, it sounds ridiculous to me for them to have sent you home if your water has gone and you're bleeding!?
I would ask for a clear explanation of what has happened when you go back!
