Pregnancy can make you feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster with many ups and downs. Know that you are not alone. Mood swings are a completely normal part of pregnancy. In fact, 7 out of 10 moms experience noticeable mood swings during their pregnancy. Whether your pregnancy was very much planned or a complete surprise, preparing for the arrival of a baby can be very overwhelming.
You may find yourself questioning many things: Will I be a good mom? Is my baby going to be healthy? Can I afford the added expenses? In addition to many questions and concerns racing through your mind, your body is experiencing a dramatic change in hormones. The amount of estrogen and progesterone in your body surges. This surge can make you feel more irritable than usual.
The following are ways you can help manage your mood swings:
If you find that your mood swings are lasting more than two weeks talk to your healthcare provider. Approximately 10 percent of pregnant women report mild to moderate depression.
If your mood swings become more intense and frequent it is important that you seek help. Studies indicate that untreated mental illness in pregnant women increases the chance of pre-term labor and postpartum depression. You can learn more about coping with postpartum depression here.
