Newbie Here!

Hi all! My name is Elyssa, I am 24 years old, and will be 29 weeks pregnant on Friday. My due date is November 29, 2013.

This will be my first baby, though not my first pregnancy. I have a long history of miscarriages, and one still birth. So far this pregnancy has been a complete blessing and everything has been going beautifully.

My only worry at this current point in time with the pregnancy is my second glucose test that I have to take Thursday. I was told that my first glucose test was a little high and thus they wanted me to come back in to take the three hour test. I am being hopeful that I do not have gestational diabetes, and based on the fact that I had a large portion of ice cream after midnight the night before my first testing, it is a good hope.

I am having a little boy.

I have on other worry though it is not particularly the pregnancy. I have been feeling very depressed the past week and a half and am becoming increasingly concerned with it. Depression has been something I dealt with my entire life, though up until recently I have had no issues and have been extremely excited about my pregnancy. For some reason this past week and a half I am extremely stressed out about it and I feel very inadequate. I'm not sure what to do about this, so if anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Anyways, that about sums it up. I'm glad to be able to meet other mothers due in November as well. I wish you all a happy and healthy pregnancy and birth. :)

WRT depression; do you find writing helps with anxiety? I found that working through some of my worries on paper was useful. Also, talk. Talk to friends, to family, to whoever makes you feel safe and loved, and see how you go. if you're still stressed about depression, see your GP; getting some therapy or meds may help a lot! good luck.
Welcome, and good luck with the GD testing to tomorrow. *hug*
Thank you so much for the welcome, I am happy to announce that the test went very well and I do not have gestational diabetes :)
Thank you so much. My test went well and I passed. I really blame the original "high sugar" on me eating a rather large (larger than I'd like to admit) amount of ice cream the night before. I was told to fast only 3 hours prior to the first test, which later on I discovered it's most beneficial to fast after midnight the night before, like they ask you to do for the second test.

I have spoken with my doctor about the depression and we are working on getting me a psychologist or psychiatrist. Of course now that everything is falling into place, I have been getting these super sharp pains on the bottom of my cervix. They are painful enough to make my knees go weak, but not painful enough to make me fall. I haven't spoken with my doctor about this yet, because I've read that they might be braxton hicks contractions. Hopefully that's all it is and it is nothing too serious. I have an appointment with my doctor on Wednesday and will bring it up to her then.
