Hello everyone, this might seema bit weird me joining because I haven't had my baby yet. But I'm so worried about PDD. This was an un-planned pregnancy, very,very hard and stressful for me. I'm 18 and was at uni so had to drop out, I'm almost 4 and a half months now but still haven't bonded with my baby. I'm very concerned I will resent it. I know it's not it's fault but I've had to sacrifice so much. PDD is so common, and I think I'll be very vulnerable to it, I feel depressed right now and can only see it getting worse once my bay is born. I don't want to give up my baby as I'm sure in time I'll get over it, but do you ladies have any advice on how I can help myself not get PDD? Did anyone else have these feelings before the baby was born?
