Is Sadness a Symptom of Pregnancy?
What is happening? Usually this sadness happens due to the emergence of the pregnancy symptoms , because, the woman imagines that she will have a perfect pregnancy, without nausea and discomfort and when the symptoms and discomfort happen, she realizes that the pregnancy is not only flowers as she dreamed.
The tiredness, fatigue and discomfort caused by pregnancy and not counting the amount of care that is recommended, also care with food and prohibitions, can leave the future mom feeling sad at this stage. The pregnant woman may be overcome by sadness for no reason. Other causes are constant concerns about the baby’s health, such as childbirth, radical changes in the body and other reasons. Anything that brings concern to the mother can affect a delivery of pure sadness and this is natural, because the woman is experiencing a whirlwind of emotions and hormones working at full throttle.

How to Diagnose Depression in Pregnancy
Depression in pregnancy is caused by a wave of sadness that does not go away at all and when the woman surrenders to the situation, she comes without asking permission and takes care.
She presents with signs of pure anxiety, loss of sleep, lack of appetite, very despondency and a deep sadness that makes the pregnant woman feel like doing absolutely nothing. It is usually related to the increase in hormones progesterone and estrogen .
However, according to studies, 95% of women who suffer from depression during pregnancy are experiencing family, financial and even health problems that raise many concerns.
If you have been experiencing this situation for more than two weeks, talk to your obstetrician, he will be able to recommend the use of medication to control depression without affecting the baby’s development.
