♥ Anything else you would like to share?

Up until now, I was very excited about this baby even though I'm single and I know it will be difficult for me to do this all alone. But lately, when people ask me "are you excited??!" I can barely say yes. I still want the baby but I spend all my free time just sitting around doing nothing, staring at the TV or sleeping. I have no motivation to do anything...I didn't even go to work today. I'm afraid this will continue and I will end up neglecting the baby's needs. I don't have a lot of people to turn to for help although there are programs available here in my community. I just don't have a lot of friends and no family. The friends I do have work, so during the day I'll be totally alone. I'm scared :( Sometimes I think maybe I should of planned to adopt out the baby as some people had suggested in the beginning of my pregnancy but I know I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I did that.

you'd be suprised how many expectant mamas go through this phase, and never experience PPD@
