Brigham and Women's Hospital answeredMany pregnant women feel joyous one minute and burst into tears the next. These mood swings are a normal part of the hormonal changes in the body. Anxieties about the future, motherhood, and other issues also are common. Asking questions, talking about your worries, and being patient with yourself by focusing on one day at a time can help. Take time to pamper yourself with a warm bath or something you enjoy. Get out of the house each day, even if just for a short walk. Reach out to others for comforting words. Read books on pregnancy and child care, and attend prenatal classes for knowledge that can erase many worries. If your depression or anxiety continues, don’t be embarrassed about speaking with your doctor.
