I'm 8 weeks and have been feeling really down ever since finding out I was pregnant - i keep thinking It should be one of the happiest times of my life and it just doesn't feel like it. I think its just a mixture of hormones and exhaustion and hopefully its natural to feel this way. I'm really struggling to be around people at the moment though but also don't feel like I want to be on my own. I'm irritable and feel like i'm just bringing my partner and friends down so i tend to hide away from people at the moment. I think its just such a huge thing to put your body through and we all react in different ways. You're not alone and I hope you feel much happier very soon.

please read my other posts as i got a bout of depression in week 8 ish - its very out of character but i couldnt even change out of my pyjamas - i felt so fed up and tired - thankfully all the girls on here said it was normal - i think i am better though now in week 13 - the scan really picked me up but am still nauseous and was sick this morning - my other half drives me nuts too - i have to count to 30 never mind 10 - especially when i get asked for the tenth time have you seen this that and the other !!! tonight he called on his way home to say start dinner - then when he got home he went out to the garden to do stuff - had to reheat 3 times MEN !!!
i have found sleep a real help and to be honest when i feel its all too much i just grab a blanket and snuggle on the sofa
its your hormones - have a warm bath and try to be patient - i have also found that talking really helped especially to other friends who have been through it
