Honestly I don't think anything is safe out there while your preganant. Just a short summary about myself...I have come to terms that I have been depressed since I was about 4 yrs old. I'm 33 now married & the mom of 2 kids. I have throughout my life thought about dying, not the methodology of killing myself but just disappearing into nothingness. When I met & married my husband I thought everything was going to be paradise...NOT but not bad like wife abuse or anything just not what I had hoped for. When I was pregnant w/our daughter I was elated not him. I was depressed, angry and resentful towards him I said to myself the hell with him I want this baby and damn it I'm going to cheer up or my baby will be sad. I couldn't do it. Pregancy is such a mix of physical and mind change that is hard to get a grip on. But eventually you try to picture the birth and that sweet innocent child you and only you gave life to and all the sadness and depression goes away. Please, I know you don't know me but please keep in mind that God gave you the special power to give life and air to those tiny lungs and joy when that baby inside you recognizes your voice outside of you...I hope I can help a little.
