Can you get the baby blues while pregnant?

I’m currently 32 weeks pregnant and dealing with what I think is the baby blues and wanting to know how other mamas deal with the baby blues and/or postpartum depression?

Its very possible. Pregnancy, as well as birth, and motherhood brings a lot of hormones and can really mess with emotions. I would talk to your doctor for sure. It might pass but it might not, and there’s no shame in getting help. I had depression for a very long time. Post partum depression is horrible. Sorry you’re going through this.

Peripartum depression sure did. Got bad enough that I had to be put on antidepressants. But I was depressed the whole pregnancy with having hypermesis and losing my job because of it. But as soon as the baby was born it went away thank god and I was able to stop the antidepressants

Maybe not baby blues but it could be you feeling overwhelmed, worrying about birth, financial, feeling like your be good enough, worrying if your bond with the baby, probably just having time to think of all the fear of the unknown but maybe speak to midwife x

Yes! I did through my last 3 pregnancies. My PPD on my last pregnancy was the worst.

I had baby blues and I 100% think it would of gotten worse if my family didn’t mention it and I spoke to them about why I was feeling sad. Talking about what is making you feel that way helps so much. I still get the feeling sometimes but then I see how happy and loving my daughter is and realise I’m nothing like my worse fear. But talking. Talking to someone who doesn’t try and fix you but allows you to vent your frustrations your worries and concerns and tells you that it’s ok to feel like that.

I had both prenatal and postnatal depression I unfortunately was late diagnosed with prenatal and it wasn’t until I was admitted to be induced that I actually had someone listen to me then suffered with postnatal terriblly it wasn’t until I was 4 months pp that I actually managed to get someone to listen and get some help for it though I’m 13 months pp and starting to come of the meds now as I’ve had a few set backs

Try some aswagandha powder, or “milk moons” has a line for moms. Herbs to help with the hormone changes!

And prepartum depression is just as worse

I never dealt with postpartum depression but dealt with prenatal depression with both. I wish I would’ve gotten help. I suffered in silence

I couldn’t wait for mine to be born

Yes! You can and it’s brutal.

For me, my closest friends were my saviors. They were able to give me moments every day where I could take my mind off of mom stuff and put them elsewhere. Human interaction from outside of my home, that was the key to saving my mind.
I was so depressed during pregnancy and post birth. Therapy wasn’t helping much. Meds were not an option atm. Friends, they kept me Goin.
