OK I asked a few weeks ago about some information on a friend who is pregnant. The Cramping is now gone. However, for the past few weeks she been getting really nasty temper flairs. It pretty much daily right now. i know this since she stays here most days with us. Her DH is a out of town a lot due to work.

I am looking on a way to help her. She does not like her self when she get nasty but she cant help it. Is there anything her doctor or physic can do for her. she see a councilor once a month to keep depression under control right now.

My OB was very fond of telling me (regarding a wide variety of issues), "There's only one cure for that.... BIRTH!" *insert OB guffawing here*

Pregnancy affects everyone differently.

I agree it just messes with everyone differently.

I know a woman who was just pure evil to her husband when she was pregnant... I think she's done having kids now. Yeah, it was me.

But anyway, there really isn't anything you can do about it because the surge of pregnancy hormones can't (and shoudn't) be changed or tampered with.

Her counselor and her doctor will know best what should or should not be done. Some women do take anti-depressants in pregnancy and there are other medications that can be taken on an as-needed basis if the situation warrants

Um, yeah. With my pregnancies with both of my sons, I got quite bitchy and have had a short temper during the first trimester. It calmed down for the 2nd and 3rd trimester, and then disappeared when I had them. I was not like that at all when I was pregnant with my daughter. We just tried to deal with it as best as we could because we knew that my hormones are just insane and all over the place.

I'm sorry you are dealing with this. Is she staying with you because she is on bedrest and needs someone to help her? I know many people that are moody when they aren't in their own home and being on bedrest would be very hard. Could that be it?

I hope your friend is able to get help and feel better! I had great pregnancies where I was happy all the time, so I couldn't imagine how she feels.

no bed rest, with the depression her dh like her stay with someone when he is on the road. Since she is off all med right now. Last time be for she lost the baby she was fine however she shopped like a mad women. She has a shopping problem when her depression is in full swing. he has set of a new checking account just so me and dh can handle there bill and stuff if he is not home when thing come due. she has money to blow but this time it will not effect the bill and there home.

I will talk to her doctor this week and see what may help. He has help our family out quite a lot and when she is on med and not pregnant she is a great friend. Just right now she is hard to deal with. thank for the help.

An old old lady once told me that a woman is only allowed to be nasty when she's pregnant with a girl because when you are pregnant with a boy, you have a penis inside of you all the time. That should be cause for happiness.

Seriously though, some meds for depression are approved to take during pregnancy...she should talk to her dr.

Ok they are giving her 25 mg of Zoloft. She will be starting them Monday since her dh just picker her up for the weekend. Since he is only home for 2 days this week, We talked and think it's best for her to start them when she is here so i can keep a eye on her.

I am more than a little concerned that she can't be left alone without her husband due to depression and uncontrollable shopping urges, etc but she's about to be entrusted with a tiny baby's life. An adult woman that has to have a friend take control of her checkbook while her husband is gone is going to be able to run a household?

Yes. This concerns me too.
