Hey Ria! Congrats to u! Correct me if i am wrong I believe it's yr first year of marriage. I appreciate your concerns and understand that u dont want to hurt anyone's sentiments but i believe sharing what u feel might help u open up. it might bring you closer to family members. I would advise you to begin sharing yr feelings with yr husband and let him do the needful. He knows his parents well and would have a fair idea how to present yr thoughts and wishes to them. Enjoy this lovely phase and don't hold yr thoughts. All the best Ria!

Hi Simran! Congratulations for being lucky to go through this beautiful phase. it is just a phase, u should get over it soon. It is not unusual to undergo depression during pregnancy due to hormonal changes. Please continue with yr treatment. Try out following strategies : 1. Take a piece of paper and write down yr worries. 2. Now put a tick in front of the problem that can be solved by yr worrying. Are u sure it will be normal delivery if u worry, or u believe yr baby will be healthy if u continue being anxious. U should get the reply. Your worry will surely not help but can definitely put u in a difficult situation. I know this might sound absurd to u and u might just say, worrying is not in yr control. Yes partly true but since medicines are taking control of that part, u need to focus on what u can do best for yr child. 4. The best U can do is remain happy as yr state of mind is directly linked with yr child's health. 5. Have proper meals. Go for check ups on scheduled dates. 6.. Talk to a friend, take support of yr hubby. 7. Feed yr brain with positive msgs. To answer yr query of being alone and having no emotional support plus fear of C-Section. It is quite ok to have c-section even if the situation arise. By 3rd day u will be on yr legs managing everything on yr own. With the only precaution of not bending or lifting heavy weights. I have had two cesarean delievries myself with no support and trust me it was no rocket science. Rather these days elecetive cesarean is the preferred option over normal delivery. Please don't stress yrself with fear of unknown. 6. Imagine yr new born to be in yr lap smiling happily and thanking u for being so strong all this while. Have Faith in God dear everything will be fine.

Thanks Kanchan Raju Patil for the feedback! To be positive during pregnancy is the best thing one could do as it has a direct impact on yr grwoing fetus . It is advisable to shut yr eyes for few minutes and imagine yr healthy fetus. How he would be growing every cm, how he would look like or how his heart would be beating. Talk to yr unborn child, feel what he/she has to say to u. This will develop a bond between u both. When the child would be born u would notice to yr surprise that the baby recognizes yr voice. All the best and wish u loads of happiness.

Thanks Meghna! Congratulations! Enjoy this beautiful phase. U deserve pampering as we all know it is not an easy task to bring another life into this world. We are smart enough to understand where to draw a line. So I am sure it won't hurt.
