Some people have trouble diciphering if they have depression, or just a simple case of the blues. Here are a list of usual symptoms of depression.

  • Lack of interest in usual activities or pasttimes you previously enjoyed.
  • Insomnia or excessive sleepiness
  • Fatigue
  • Feel irritable or restless
  • Increase or decrease in usual appetite or usual weight
  • Inability to concentrate, or focus to make decisions
  • Feelings of anxiety, hopelessness or sadness
  • Frequent thoughts of suicide or death.

If you experience four or more of the above symptoms, every day or nearly every day of a two week period, you may be suffering from depression. You should make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your depression and possible treatments.

    I am 6 weeks pg, just found out a few days ago. What tipped me off was that my braetss were still tender after 2 weeks, as usually they only hurt the week before af. I also have had bad heartburn, but thought it was due to the spicy food I have been eating lately. I go pee alot, and have feelings of fullness as well as gas. This is baby #5 for me, and so far this one has given me the most symptoms the earliest.As far as negative pg tests, it could be numerous things such as an irregular cycle or too early to show positive on a hpt. You should call your doc and discuss this w/ them as well as ask for tests to check your thyroid, FSH LH levels, etc sometimes these test can pinpoint what’s up with your cycle.Good Luck!
