I'm wondering if anyone has ever heard of this before or has any advice.I have a week left until my due date, and the last couple of wks I keep getting a bad feeling, like I feel wrong, and this shouldn't be happening to me type thing.I think about the baby being inside me and it makes me feel sick, like I don't want to be in this position at all.I am so miserable, I feel depressed and frustrated and desperate.It's also really strange because I have been getting that same bad feeling everytime after s_x during the pregnancy, but i just had the feeling and couldn't actually make the connection that it had something to do with the baby. I am positive it has nothing to do with my partner and my relationship. So besides after s_x its really just a recent thing.But it doesn't make sense because I do want this baby and love it and everything..do you think its a warning that I might experience postpartum depression, or is it just my nerves because im at the end of the pregnancy? Should I mention it to my doctor??

I have no personal experience with this but I think you may be nervous about the birth and the start of a new life with the baby? It seems perfectly normal to feel that way. Pregnancy is sort of this magical time when we get to play mommy but have no child to take care of. All of a sudden you know that any day your water is going to break and you will be forced to deal with this baby. Does not sound fun to me either and I think a lot of women feel nervous and apprehensive toward the end. I hope someone can advise you better. I wish you the best:)

I can't relate from my own experience, but the closest anxiety I felt was a sort of shock that the hospital was letting me walk outside to my car with my first born. It felt illegal or like I aught to be escorted for I the baby's security. Then it struck me that everyone in the world was going to be looking to me when ever he cries. The good news is that when ever they looked to me when I cried,I was already there somehow knowing what to do. It might just be the fear of a type of life you haven't lived yet. Like my mom said "it all becomes clear once you get to know your new little baby." Talk it out with those close to you, you'll find support there, and Good Luck!

I'm not sure. I think i'm really second guessing if I made the right decision. I have hated every moment of this pregnancy, and I think the whole time I expected things ot be ok once the baby got here, and now im realizing things wont change.

I see. You made it sound like this was a new feeling for you. I had no idea you never felt happy during the pregnancy. Sorry to hear that.

I am feeling some tentativeness regarding the upcomming birth and care of my first (EDD 4.5 weeks) but am not feeling depressed, frustrated or desperate. It may be normal worries for some pregnant women but I would definatly discuss your feeling with your doctor sooner rather than later to make sure. If it is a sign of post Partum depression you doctor should be aware of a need to keep a closer eye out for this possible development. Good luck, and I hope all works out well for you and the baby.

it's hard to explain. I mean I am happy, but I have just found this whole experience really difficult. Being bored all the time, and not having any friends there for support or anything,this past mnth i've been so uncomfortable, now I have an awful throat infection.. I think Im just getting fed up more than anything I guess. I am going to discuss it with my doc tho. thanks girls

Good luck KM and try to stay positive. I know what you are going through about not having support. I am in a new city with no friends or family and feel lonely much of the time. Luckily, my hubby is a sweetheart and is my best friend. I can always count on him to cheer me up.

I got a second part-time job in a retail store just so I can be around people. It is sort of sad but I am desperate and it seems to be helping my att_tude.

Thanks E..it sucks because pregnancy is the worst time to feel lonely.. My bf is around most of the time now too because he started his parental leave, that really helps a lot. But god, i get so p__sed off at him when he goes out to play pool or something. I just expect him to be there to entertain me 24/7 and I know its totally not fair..
