Depression during Pregnancy

I have been having such a hard time with depression during this pregnancy. I wanted to focus on being positive and happy, but I’m just not feeling that way. This pregnancy sucks! I’m nauseated all the time, but still hungry. I’m exhausted and it is a horrible struggle to make it through the night (3rd shift worker). On one of my favorite shows, The View, they talked about pregnancy and depression and it was very helpful to me. Here it is for your viewing pleasure:


Who is Bright Star?

I’m Bright Star, Star for short, and I just found out that I am pregnant!!!  I wanted to celebrate this exciting event by starting a blog. To be honest, I am a little afraid of this pregnancy. It comes on the heels of a pregnancy loss.  It has been 7 months since my precious daughter, Georgia, was born sleeping at 22 weeks. I also had a miscarriage at 8 weeks in 2013. Understandably I am worried that this pregnancy will not last, that I will never have anything but angel babies. I decided that I refuse to have that mentality. These tragic events have inspired me to do something big to stay positive and hopeful in my current pregnancy. I am going to blog about it! Maybe by doing this I can help myself, as well as others, navigate the journey to have a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. Thanks for sharing this rainbow journey with me.
