I am 29 weeks pregnant and am feeling sooo depressed. I suffered with depression before i became pregnant. It was planned and i was so pleased and excited when i found out, please don't get me wrong i cannot wait to have my baby but i just want my body back (that sounds really bad!!!)

I knew that this was going to be tough as me and my fiance had to move back into my dads house as we wanted to save for a mortgage. I am so!! stressed living there, no one else does anything. My fiance is excellent and puts up with me and my awful mood swings but it is getting me down, my room is damp with damp coming through the walls, the house is never clean enough and no one actually gives a s**t.

Sorry but all i can think at the moment is it is only going to get worse whilst living at my dads and when the baby has arrived and my sister and dad having something else to moan about it will become increasingly difficult to stay there!!

Along with all this feeling low, i am uncomfortable, probably like everyone of you, chest pains (i think anxiety) and breathlessness.

Sorry for the rant just dont want my baby to think that i am stressed and don't want it or make it unsettled! this is the time i am supposed to make it feel safe and i don't think that i am doing a very good job.

Hi hun, is it possible that you can get into your own place between now and when the baby arrives? I'm in the US so I don't know how the system works there but it seems there is some assistance for getting into your own place maybe see what is offered for your situation?

I hope things work out for a happy rest of your pregnancy and you guys are out on your own when the baby comes Kiss

We could but saving would be out the window, you can't get a property for less then £200,000 over here and that would be a one bedroomed studio apartment.

States wouldn't give us a states house either as we earn too much and their priority is people who cannot afford housing.

Messy situation but i'll just have to live with it, the sooner we save the sooner we're out!!

I'm hoping that when baby arrives i won't care, but the way things in my head are i think they will just get 10,000 times worse.

Fingers crossed not!
