Why Do I Feel This Way During My Pregnancy?

Emotional fluctuations can happen sometimes during pregnancy. This can be a vulnerable time for some women. You may feel nervous or a little down. Perhaps you’re anxious about what you’re going to do about the pregnancy. There may also be fears about what’s going to happen next.

How will I know which of my options is right for me? Should I have an abortion? What if I make a decision and I’m unhappy about it later?  

These are all valid questions. It’s possible these thoughts are weighing heavily on you. You deserve to have your concerns listened to and your questions answered. Being able to talk about these concerns can be important.

How Can I Find Help for What I’m Feeling?  

If you’re feeling confused about your options, professional resources can help. A healthcare provider or a pregnancy consultant can work with you to provide clarity about your next steps regarding your pregnancy. But if you’re depressed or on the verge of a breakdown, reach out to a counselor or a therapist with your concerns. Talking one-on-one with someone can help with managing anxieties.
