What to do if you feel depressed during pregnancy?

When you were pregnant, did anyone tell you that you had changed? You have become irritable and prone to mood swings. You used to be gentle and gentle, but now you are in a situation where you explode at the slightest moment. Every trivial matter in life can become a reason for you to get angry. It is really scary. After saying this, I will start to advise you earnestly, you can’t do this when you are pregnant, because it is not good for the child in the belly. In fact, the expectant mother does not know that this is not good for the child, but sometimes it is I can\’t control it. This in the end is why? First, hormonal changes after pregnancy are the main reason for emotional instability in pregnant women. After pregnancy, the hormones in the body will change drastically, which not only makes it easy for mood swings, but also weakens the ability to control emotions, so it gives people a moody look. The feeling is actually not moody, just uncontrollable. Most of the time, I don’t want to get angry, but I get angry for some unknown reason. This is caused by hormonal problems. Secondly, the identities and living conditions of women who suffer from mental stress will change after pregnancy. They need to face many practical problems, including financial problems, marriage problems, problems with mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, etc. Of course, the most concentrated one is the worry about the baby. For example, in the first trimester, you worry about fetal arrest, in the second trimester, you worry about the baby\’s development, in the third trimester, you worry about childbirth, about the relationship between husband and wife, and about the child\’s future upbringing and education. In short, there are really too many things that mothers have to worry about, and most of them are prone to problems and relatively difficult problems, so it is easy to fall into the cycle of anxiety. When people are anxious, how can their mood get better? Where to go? Third, not getting a good rest and not getting enough sleep will damage the part of the brain responsible for processing emotions. If negative emotions are not well managed, it will lead to depression, anxiety and other negative emotions. In other words, if you don’t get enough sleep, Without sleep, the brain cannot respond appropriately to emotions, resulting in an uncontrollable state. Generally speaking, mothers during pregnancy will experience pregnancy reactions such as morning sickness, edema, low back pain, and acid reflux. When going to bed at night, they often cannot sleep peacefully because of these reactions. In addition, frequent urination will also affect sleep, and they will not get enough food for a long time. When studying, the body is overloaded and emotional self-control will be significantly reduced. There is really nothing you can do about losing control of your emotions during pregnancy. You can only try to control it, for the sake of your child and yourself. It\’s just that some mothers don\’t know what impact emotional changes will have on their babies. Here\’s some popular science: The fetus can sense the mother\’s emotional changes through the mother\’s body very early. It may be a bit confusing to say, but let\’s briefly understand it. In fact, It\’s the so-called \”mother-child connection.\” Clinical investigation results show that if pregnant women are emotionally anxious during 4-10 weeks of pregnancy, it may lead to abnormal fetal development, because if pregnant women have strong mood swings in the early stages of pregnancy, they will directly affect the secretion of hormones in the body and cause fetal abnormalities. In an unstable situation, if a pregnant woman becomes emotional and her heart beats too fast in the second and third trimesters, it may lead to insufficient oxygen supply to the baby and cause suffocation. In addition, studies have shown that if the mother is in a state of anxiety or has a long-term bad mood during pregnancy, the babyAfter birth and growing up to three or four years old, the probability of emotional problems is three times that of ordinary children. For the sake of the baby and ourselves, we need to try our best to control our emotions during pregnancy. Specifically, we can do this from the following aspects: First, stay away from the environment where the incident occurred. Many things that make pregnant mothers lose control of their emotions. It\’s a trivial thing in life, and the key to solving this situation is to make the mother turn off the fire so that she doesn\’t want to get angry. At this time, it is up to the pregnant mother to control herself. When she starts to feel that she is about to erupt, she should leave this irritating environment first, and then do other things, such as going out for a walk, eating with friends, etc. After calming down, you will feel that what happened just now is not worth getting angry at all. Second, interact more with the baby in the belly. Anxiety during pregnancy is an unavoidable problem for most pregnant mothers. In most cases, outsiders cannot intervene in this kind of thing. It is mainly up to the pregnant mother to adjust herself. Of course, the husband is still very considerate. It\’s important because the child is the product of two people\’s love. When a pregnant mother feels anxious, she might as well interact more with the baby in her belly. Of course, she can also talk to her husband, but compared with the baby, the baby is more reliable, and most of the anxiety of pregnant mothers is also caused by the baby. . Communicate with the baby and touch the pregnant belly more. This not only helps the pregnant mother to ease the communication, but is also a good way of prenatal education for the baby. Third, seize the time to get more sleep. Most pregnant mothers have poor sleep quality. You can try drinking less water before going to bed, which can help reduce edema and frequent urination. If you sleep intermittently at night, try to drink less water before going to bed. Taking a nap during the day can effectively help keep you energetic. Finally, a warm reminder, the main way to alleviate the unstable emotions of pregnant women is to have a conscientious father. This father will actively participate in the parenting process, spend more time with the mother, and be by his side for every prenatal check-up. This can greatly relieve mother\’s anxiety.
