I am 37 weeks pregnant and feeling so down. I tend to shut down socially cause I feel that no one will understand or care. I'm so afraid of the labor and delivery even though I am well informed (I'm a RN in the operating room). And even more afraid of being a new mom. Since I work in health care, maybe I feel that I can handle this alone but I feel that I'm drowning, crying almost everyday, and I feel like I have no one to turn to. And I know this can't be healthy for my unborn baby girl. Haven't spoken about this to my Ob, not yet at least. I intend to get some referrals from him at my next visit. My husband is a saint. He is supportive, when he's home-- he is working a lot since I am on early maternity leave for migrains and vertigo. I tend to alienate my friends when I'm feeling down. I know it's wrong to do that but I don't want to burden anyone.
