Pregnancy Effects to Women
« Reply #180 on: May 12, 2011, 03:02:29 pm »

I got pregnant last year and gave birth last December 2010. Everything was quite fine but when I was on my 5th-6th month. I am starting to feel ugly, fat, and alone. Well, those are major concerns for us women... being beautiful, well-fit and socially inclined are the things we focus on but these all stops as we get pregnant. We have to consider a lot of things like, staying at home, eat more than we usually do, and feel comfortable as time goes by. I had a hard time dealing with these negative effects. Most or should I say, all of us encounters these effects. What are the things and activities which are appropriate for pregnant women that could help to avoid these effects?  :-[

Depression and How to Kill It
« Reply #181 on: May 12, 2011, 03:58:28 pm »

Most of us, women undergo with depression after giving birth. This is called postpartum depression. I, myself, did go through this. Experiencing ugliness and seeing my stretchmarks are the most depressing for me. I feel like I'm the ugliest woman. What I did was, I told everything to my husband...I shared all my kept emotions I was dealing with. Hearing your husband's words helped me out A LOT! Comforting words will help you through. Also, a nice talk with your family and friends will divert you from feeling depressed. Go out, mingle, and fix yourself. I overcame this depression, I hope this little experience of mine will help you  too.  ;) Have a wonderful life!

i gave birth nov2010 and during the course of my pregnancy, i never felt really ugly. i had always admired beautiful pregnant women, and i made sure that when i get pregnant, i will be just like them. i don't put make up on (i don't know how), i just use lip&cheek tint. i didn't really wear maternity clothes(they're too expensive and hindi talaga bagay sakin), i just used blouses that were very maluwang in the middle for my growing tummy. when i was on matleave already, i did a lot of arts and crafts to keep me busy at home. it also helped that my hubby was always there. whenever i feel a little insecure, he would always remind me that i am beautiful. :)

I'm currently 36-37weeks pregnant, and YES dumaan din ako sa stage that i felt ugly. All the dark lines started to show up, I gained weight, I had pimples, I had dark areas na sa body. I feel so so ugly, tapos nung 8th month ko pa biglang nagshow na ang stretchies,  ::) I stay at home, hubby is working from 9am-6pm so basically mag-isa lang talaga ako through out the day, i don't go out kasi nakabed rest ako. What I did to cope up with these, was to love my baby more, binuhos ko lahat ng oras ko sa unborn child ko, I was busy making notes regarding her development inside me, lagi kong iniisip na para sa kanya yung konting sacrifices ko na hindi makapagpaganda, kahit inaasar ako ni hubby, the hell i care, im a soon to be mom and im loving it. I just felt so blessed kaya deadma ako sa pangungutya, siguro di lang ako nagpatalo sa hormones at emotions ko during that time.

I'm on my 5th month and right now mas naeenjoy ko na yung feeling of being pregnant. At first, lalo na nung mga morning sickness days feeling ko ang losyang ko na. I mean, tinatamad na ako mag-ayos tapos depressed pa coz single mom ako blah..blah.. Pero I realized na hinde excuse yung pagiging preggy para maging panget tayong mga moms. Now, I must say na most of my colleagues and relatives are delighted to see na kahit preggy single mom ako + I'm carrying a baby boy mas nboost yung self-confidence ko, masiglang tignan tipong walang problema.. :) Imagine, even having a 21 weeks preggy tummy  nagawa ko pang mag 2-piece sa beach?!?hehe :) Iniisip ko kasi pag lalo ako nag-emote dahil sa changes brought by pregnancy baka madepressed lang ako, maapektuhan pa si baby. Basta ako, nagfofocus lang ako sa health ng baby ko. I'm a proud mom-to-be. ;D deadma nalang talaga ako sa sasabihin ng iba.

I lost my yaya on the same day my husband's paternal leave ended. As soon as he left for the office, I was crying like crazy. Naiisip ko lang kasi when my maternity leave ends on October, baka walang mag-aalaga sa baby ko. My husband and I live alone, our relatives are in the province. Hindi naman kami pwedeng makiusap na a relative come over to watch the yaya kasi busy din sila doon. Up to now iyak pa din ako ng iyak, parang awang awa ako sa sarili ko at sa baby ko. Sabi lang ni hubby, I should take comfort in the fact na kasama ko si baby buong araw. But that gives me very little comfort.

hi!

i dont know kung ppd nga itong nafifeel ko pero madalas akong umiyak due to 2 reasons:

1. ex ni hubby. before kasi di na talaga ako nagseselos sa kanya saka di naman na kasi sya threat but then suddenly, sobrang nagseselos ako ulit sa kanya. i keep on bringing her up tas ako rin masasaktan pag narinig ko na yung name. i keep on comparing myself sa kanya (not physically, though). kasi sya matagal niligawan, ako hindi. sya, nakasama na ng buong family ni hubby sa napakaraming out of towns, ako ni isa, wala pa. napakarami nilang pictures together sa hard disk niya tas kami wala ata. tas ayaw pa itapos ni hubby yung mga memorabilias nila na nasa drawer niya. :( saka nakailang date sila ng bongga, kami hindi kasi may kayang gumastos ng malaki ni hubby dati ngayon hindi na. sobrang nalulungkot ako. iiyak nalang ako basta marinig or makita ko name niya.

2. yung isa naman, nagsisink in na sa akin na may asawa na ako at darating yung time na lalayo ako sa family ko. eh, sobrang close kami ng family ko. parang di ako handa. :(

yun lang naman. haay. naiiyak na naman ako.  :'(

I gave birth just recently and sad to say i'm also going through this post partum depression. It has something to do with my mom. Parang feeling ko mas favorite niya yung nephew ko who is a year older to my newborn. Every time na nasa bahay ang pamangkin ko todo asikaso sya though andun naman yung brother ko to look after his son. And I, was left taking care of my baby. I'm thankful lang kasi may mga kapatid ako na ngti-take turn to help me out sa pag-aalaga. Though, pinapakita naman ni mama na mahal niya ang baby ko andun pa rin yung feeling ko na mas affectionate sya dun sa isa. Madalas pa nyang ma-mention yung name ng pamangkin ko whenever karga niya ang daughter ko or sometimes pag nagkukwentuhan lang kami.

I know i'm being unreasonable pero i can't help it.  :(  Hopefully, sana ma-overcome ko rin 'to soon.

Naku mommy zhane, parehong-pareho tau ng nae-experience.  >:(
Anyways, weird thoguh, pero I started experiencing post-partum depression 8months after giving birth when I felt I was all alone, lalo na kami lang ni baby naiiwan sa house pag pumapasok na sa work si hubby. That was the time when I felt so ugly, so useless, so tired. Hindi  ko rin agad ma-admit sa self ko that I was undergoing that kind of depression, I was making myself believe that I was okay, that everything was okay, but that worsened the case.
Kelangan positive thoughts lagi, that helped me a lot! I had a total make-over, went to the salon, to the spa...then I became better! Siguro kelangan lang ng outlet.
