7 weeks pregnant and depressed

Hello Doc,

I am 7 weeks along with a planned first pregnancy. I was so happy and excited when we first found out but over the past week I have been feeling worse and worse, not only physically but emotionally too. I have nausea all day, back pain and terrible headaches. This past weekend I have been bursting into tears for no reason and don''t want to do anything but sleep. I have never been depressed, down certainly, but this is worse than anything I have ever experienced.

Is this normal? And what can I do about it? My first appointment with my gynae is not for another three weeks.
