I'm 20 weeks today 2nd baby, still feeling very sick and so tired. I was depressed ante-natal and post-natal during my first pregnancy (so much so I was off work during most of the pregnancy and I didn't go back after the birth.
It completely knocked my confidence and made me scared and angry about everything.
I have another job now and find myself trying to keep busy as much as possible so I don't get ill again or give my mind time to think about it.
It doesn't work as soon as work stops and I try to relax I'm worrying again. I feel this pregnancy is different and I'm more confident but I'm petrified of falling apart with caring for the new baby and my 3 year old.
Also I don't find my husband as helpful this time around and it's making me feel sad. I dare not say anything in case people think he's a bad person. He doesn't seem to think he's doing anything wrong.
I'm not that close to my family and they all live a long distance, I though I would get more support from them this time around due to last time, but once again I feel so let down.
