OT: Pregnant and sad...
I am 36 weeks pregnant and for some reason I feel really sad... I miss my family, but at the same time I know I made the decision to move to another country to be with the man I love... but I cant stop thinking how much I would love to be able to go see my parents and give them a big hug. They have always being there and I am glad I could go see them last february, but it isnt the same. Id love to go see my mom right now and have some coffee together...
Im sorry Im rambling... I would call them now, but it is almost midnight over there and if I did, they would freak out thinking that something is wrong...

I'm sorry you're feeling sad. I know it's hard to be separated from loved ones at times like this.

Many and to you!

Big Bear Hugs... I know it's hard.. My daughter went through similar.. she was 1,000 miles away w/ both children.

One thing though.. remember.. your parents love you and know you..Your mother would understand you needing to talk w/ her even if it is midnight!

My daughter did it more than once... She just needed to hear my voice, and for me to make her laugh..

Don't underestimate your parents understanding...

Hang in there.. and know you have a family here who cares also!

Thank you!!!! I had a hard day at work, I think I am getting to the point where I just feel comfortable at home seeing no one but my hubby and my big belly... I will call my mom tomorrow morning when I wake up.

AWWWWWWWW I'm sorry!!!!!

It's the hormones and where you are in your pregnancy. It's NORMAL AND NATURAL to miss your family.

My parents live 4 hours away, and I have felt that feeling many, many times but especially when pregnant or right after my baby was born. My heart goes out to you.

Please mention this to your doctor. Post partum depression can actually start during pregnancy. Isolating oneself is a hallmark of depression. Better to mention to your doctor and let him/her assess.

you DO need your family at a time like this
your mom will understand even if you call at the middle of the night
any level of isolation SUCKS
but when you are pregnant, its even worse

hugs to you
hope things get better
and DO reach out when you need it
